I just finished the television series “Jericho” this morning and I have to say I loved it. I remember hearing about it when it was actually on a few years ago but I didn’t start watching it until recently.
It’s the story of the small town of Jericho, Kansas and how the town survives after nuclear attacks on major cities around the United States. I won’t go into much detail about the show so if you haven’t seen it you don’t get spoiled. The acting is pretty decent, the story line is good, and there are only a few moments of lameness. The second season isn’t as good as the first, it seems like it had to be put together fairly quickly, but it’s still entertaining.
The problem with Jericho is that it didn’t last very long. After one season it was cancelled. Thankfully the fans rallied around the show and convinced the network to bring it back. A few episodes into the second season it was cancelled again. I read they filmed two endings for the show: one if it was cancelled, one if it wasn’t, and unfortunately the end came. I honestly don’t know how shows like “Two and a Half Men” and other crap can stay on TV when good shows like this don’t make it.
There have been rumors (as there are with most shows cancelled prematurely) of a movie but also of a comic book series that would continue the storyline. We’ll see what happens. The entire series is available on Netflix via Instant Streaming so you can watch every episode there. I totally recommend this show and would love to hear from people who have already seen it or from people who decide to watch it.
Long live the Allied State of America! (just kidding)
