Jericho

6 posts in this topic

All I have to say is WOW. This show rocks! It's been out for about a year and half, I think, and it's gone under the radar for the most part due to poor advertising. I just found out about it becuse scifi was showing the first few eps of the first season on Mondays right before anime, so naturally I started watching it because it showed a nuke going off. I'm hooked! The downside is season two is doing poorly due to CBS not advertising it enough yet again. I'm assuming that it will end on it's second season but I have high hopes that the show will become popular on Scifi Fridays and cause the writers to make a third season.

Anyway, for those that don't know, Jericho is a small farm town outside of Kansas. The story is basically about what happens when a nuclear mushroom clouds suddenly appear and the world goes apocalyptic, or does it ;). It's similar to those movies we used to watch in middle school about a nuke going off and people that survived having to try and fend for themselves..etc. It's exactly like that with the only difference being it continues the story with added twists, conspiracy's, conflicts, romance and more.

I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a post apocalyptic show. If you missed any of the first season you can watch it on the CBS web site for free. You can also watch it using Joost (a free and legal downloadable online TV program that uses the bittorrent protocol to stream the video fast and in high quality). Season two is currently being aired on CBS and most of the eps are on the current sites I listed above.

Definitely watch this guys. Its well worth it.

I completely missed this post years ago.. and just recently me and Lady finished watching Jericho on netflix. Holy crap, that is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time! Its a shame the second season was cut so short.. but at least they finished up the Hawkin's plot line. That guy was awesome. He killed so many people. :D

I know! They started making a comic that picks up from where the second ending left off (if you haven't seen it yet you should look for it on youtube or something). So far only 3 issues have been released...and it looks like that will be canceled too lol. It's really sad how unnoticed this series is. I've let a few friends borrow both seasons and they where instantly hooked. When they return them to me I always get the same thing "Why did they end it? I want to know what happens next!".

This is by far the only series I've actually watched multiple times and never get sick of.

I stumbled upon it not too long ago on netflix and was hooked instantly, watching it for hours nonstop. I was pissed that this show was cancelled and I didn't even realize it until I reached season 2. Still thinking about the characters from Jericho..Never thought that I would care so much about well beings of so many TV characters in one series. It's a shame that this show ended so early. Definitely one of the best in my book

So true. This series definitely had a production and acting quality not seen in many tv series.

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.

      Netflix is making the equivilant of Mythbusters 2. Yay. I've been needing a mythbusters fix and I'm glad these 3 are coming back to entertain us.
