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.

      The season finale just ended this past monday. I started this series and gave it a couple eps. I almost dropped it, but by the third ep shit started going down and I got sucked into the plot. This was a surprisingly great series with excellent acting. Its so refreshing to see a 1 off series like this. I don't think there is going to be a season 2 and if there is it would probably ruin the experience. This played out like an anime in a sense. It started and finished the entire plot. There was no filler episodes and everything tied in together. I hope this inspires AMC to make more stand alone short series. Hell, I wish more of america tv would follow this direction instead of endless reality shows or drawing out a series so long that it gets canceled without a finale. This show proves its possible for US tv to actually give us a story in a complete season. Well done AMC.  I can only compare this to Stephen King mini series, except better. Now I wish all those old Stephen King mini series were actually given the full season treatment like this.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      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.
