Description

Zero Hours is an anthology series from Long Story Short Productions, where every story is a different take on the end of the world - or at least something that feels like the end of the world. Each episode is organized around a kind of apocalypse, whether the cataclysm is planetary or personal, and each episode is also set in succeeding centuries, with 99-year intervals separating them. Zero Hours begins in the past, catches up to the present, and eventually overtakes it. Some installments are darkly comedic, others grimly contemplative, and others still thrillingly contentious. But they all explore the same question: how do we keep going when the world is crashing down around us?Stories From The End(s) of the World...

Isn't the definition of stupidity repeating the same action over and over and expecting a different result?

This one is just like one of the good old Wolf369 episodes in terms of the writing and suspense. So good!

Damn, just imagine this was written a few months later. If they thought the world was ending then, just look at us now.
