Who else is planning on watching this this fall? I've seen some commercials for it - it looks intriguing, like it will be one of those shows that you can come back to week after week.
I hope that it explores not only the mystery behind what happened,, but the social interactions that happen afterward, how they town comes together and works together and builds a society. I think that kind of thing is fascinating, and I want to see it nowwwwww...
We watched it as there wasn't much else on and really liked it. Just hope they don't leave us hanging tho. Last season we liked Invasion and that other SciFi one that was on Friday nights and they took them off without even ending them.
I just heard tho that Jericho was one of the few new shows to survive the first cut.
Well. "Jericho" has been Officially OKed for the rest of this season...unlike "Smith" which has already been axed(as well it should be)
I have issues with "Jericho" because I am from Kansas; although it is NOT as ridiculous as "Smallville" did you see that Forest last week...kimmmmeee a break!! But all in all it has at least tried to be accurate enough to fool most viewers even in issues of radiation poisoning and fallout...where is nuclear winter??? time will tell I suppose..
If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to. Dorothy Parker
My husband is from Kansas too but he likes the show. Actually, Kansas probably wouldn't survive a nuclear blast because it's so open and flat and the radiation would blow there.
I'm from Southern Oregon and it's supposed to be a safe place in the event of a nuclear blast as the mountains make a protected bowl and the bad stuff would go over the top. There's an inversion layer to keep things out, kind of like the LA basin holds pollution.
anyway, we like the show. Glad to see Gerald McRaney back in action.
re Jericho I love this show. I wish I had know about the Nuts campaign. I wish I could be been there when those tons of nuts came into CBS in NYC. I miss the Gerald McRainey character. I love the town so much.
We miss Gerald too. I haven't seen Pamela Reed yet this season (Jake's mother). I really liked her too. I hope she comes back. I'm glad to see D.B. Sweeney, he's a good nemesis but I hope Esai Morales isn't gone for good. I really liked how he and Jake were getting along.
They shouldn't have axed Gerald McRaney IMHO, but he may have wanted out as I understand that Delta is having some problems and from all indications he's a wonderful, caring husband.
The shootout was pretty unexpected. I wonder if the reason she opened fire was that the writers were having to write her out of the story and they just decided to let her go out dramatically rather than simply let her character relocate to California as she had previously mentioned.
D.B.'s character has been neutralized and I was just as surprised by this as I was the shootout at the farmhouse. I'm beginning to wonder how the next two segments will flow. Has anybody given any thoughts to possible endings? There are only two more shows left in the season, right?
I finally watched it and cried through the very last part of it. I hate that it was the last episode, I don't understand why a TV network would axe a show that is so popular unless someone out there doesn't like the political commentary behind the plot.
Surely I'm not the only one who noticed the fact that the attacks on Jericho were in September just like 9-11 was for the US.
I was raised part of my life in Texas, my parents were born and bred there, I had a moment of pride in Texas as those jets came up and shot the bad guys out of the sky. That was awesome even if it was fiction.
We finally watched the season finally last night. We feel resolved by the way they ended it. I'd rather it end like this then try to come back and not give any closure. We didn't think they'd be able to tie things up but they did pretty good.
I thought they tied up things well also. Now that that's been done, they may not want to be picked up by another network. If they'd continued fighting, like a revolution, then they could have gone on for longer.
