Jericho post #1  quote:





Premiers Wednesday, September 20th on CBS @ 8 eastern, 7 central.

Things are quiet and peaceful in small-town Jericho, Kansas, but when a baffling explosion occurs in the distance, Jericho's residents are plunged into social, psychological and physical chaos. No one knows what to think, and fear of the unknown takes over the town, especially because its isolation cuts it off from outside help. When nearly everything they know seems gone, will the residents of JERICHO band together to face their unfamiliar and mysterious new world?

check the video here: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/upfront_2006/jericho.shtml

This looks good to me. The premise anyhow. Never know, the show could suck, but I'm going to watch it this week, and make an effort to get into it.

Looks like Denver and Atlanta are taken out by nukes, and no one knows why or how, they are all in the dark. So it should be interesting.

This show sounds great, and I particularly like Skeet Ulrich as a cast member. Not the most fantastic actor (he's fine, better than most), but he just has that "oh my god, everything's going to hell kind of look about him".

I'm gonna try and catch this show.

I'm hooked too... and I'm with Whidden in hoping that the episodes will be as good as the pilot. I like the characters, and the interactions between them. Jake and his family... especially the dynamics between him and his father (the town mayor). Jake's been the black sheep of the family, and his actions might just change that around, in his fathers eyes... or, they will still have their distance.

I thought that the whole prisoner bus scene was great. It will be something when they go out to the bus and find the sheriff, and others (I believe) dead. And what will happen.

The ending, with the school teacher on the side of the road, and hundreds of dead birds all over... wow.

I liked that the one guy (was his name Doug?) had the message on the answering machine from him mom, and that she was in Atlanta. So, the town found out that it was more than Denver. Wonder where else it will turn out to be.... if it will be all the major cities all over the US, or if they will keep us guessing. They could have people show up in town, with info, or something.

That's the part that I believe we're going to have to wait to find out. I bet that we will find out about other major cities being taken out, little by little. Hell, it could be the entire world... or just the US. I'm ready for next Wednesday already.

I don't know what to think. When he first appeared back in town, each person that he spoke with heard a different "story" as to where Jake had been for the past 5 years. And he's wanting the money left him, from his grandfather. When he was leaving the cemetery, with his mom, he said something about his father must never know what he wanted it for. I think that his mom knows more than meets the eye.

I think that he was a bad boy when he was in Jericho, five years ago... and left, for whatever reason. But, he's been doing something to change his life around.

I was wondering if he was trying to go through medical school when he was helping that little girl. But, he told the boy something about learning in the scouts? I can't remember, for sure, what he said.

Didn't he say he was 31? Guy looks about my age to me, which is old as dirt. All those crows feet and crags. Dude must be like 39 in real life.


I'm thinking those birds got whacked cause they were high up and got hit by some blast that didn't kill the ground people cause of the mountains.

But that don't explain the deer dying in the road. So I don't know whats up with that.

I'v been into Kansas along the interstate, and the mountains start after Denver, not before it. But maybe north or south of the highway, there are mountains like that in Kansas. I hope so, otherwise the geography should have been done better.


Who is the all knowing mysterious black dude? He must be someone from the Government....

I don't think that the deer died on the road. Didn't it get hit by the bus? I can't remember that either. But, maybe radiation kills animals faster, since they have a much faster metabolism then humans.

Next week, from the previews, they are all running to get inside a shelter, because of the radiation.

I don't know WHO he is... but he (Robert Hawkins) said that he was a retired cop, I think, from St Louis, MO. I don't know if he knows more than he's letting on... or what.

The thing that makes me think it was a full scale nuke war, and the whole country is gone, is that the promo for the website uses the teaser that "there are other survivors out there, find out about them".

If the whole country was out there, and just Atlanta and Denver were gone, then they wouldn't really be survivors.

Right... I was thinking that there were more places "hit" than Denver, and Atlanta. But, I'm wondering if it was ALL the major cities in the US, and world wide, or what.

I do think that we will see people from other cities crossing through Jericho, and some will stay.


I was thinking the same thing when he was talking to the blonde teacher. It was obvious that they were an "item" in the past... and her comments left me thinking that something would happen to the guy, if it hasn't already. Then again, maybe they will try to pair him up with Heather (the teacher in the bus).

Typical Nuke War subject matter. The one who Society deems a loser, has no woman, no job, no nothing, all of a sudden becomes the hero of the hour, when the rules of society go away with the mushroom cloud.

It's a fun thesis (except for all the death), the fantasy that your loser life has become something else, that in a new world, you will be the leader and the winner.

Dude has two chicks after him now...

Watched this show. It wasn't bad. I won't say I'm hooked, but I'll keep watching it. It's pretty cool, and all the characters are interesting. The escaped prisoners seem like they're going to 'cause some troubles.

I have to say, the premier should have been a double episode. It ended with the kids on the bus being saved, and everybody realizes the mayor is top-shelf, and that... but there wasn't that much substance to some of the things it set up (the explosions, for one, the escapes prisoners... did they even mention the ham radio after he visited that blow to use it?)

SPOILERS!!!!!!























Damn, we lost Fuscia and Kris. They took out San Diego.


But I didn't see no red tack pin on Tulsa....SUCKAS!!!


Actually, he kept picking up red pins, it looks like the whole darn country is gone. That was kinda rude.

I'm into the show, like it a lot, had a few WTF moments, like when they had to explain to a bunch of brain dead drunks what radiation will do them. Whatever! Like there are still folks in the world that don't know about radiation.

I liked how Blondie was Annie Oakley. Took out a bad guy. Liked most of it. Black dudes wife don't seem to like him much.
