I was surprised when the bombs went off in the air. Clearly, the target was not some foreign city. Whoever is in charge in the US wanted to disable any remaining electrical devices.

Very odd though. Who turned on the power in the first place? the phone calls that came in were from an assistant secretary in the department of homeland security. But why would they turn the power back on, and then use nukes to knock it out completely??

Perhaps the plot line does involve a coup d'etate within the US. One faction was the ones that made the calls and turned the power back on, the other launched the nukes to try to disable the electrical equipment everywhere.

The silly thing is, fallout doesn't seem to exist on this tv. There was, what, one episode where it was a problem? And now a second bout of nukes went off, and they just cut to 'three weeks later...'?

Anyway, still a fun show.

Ya, some of the factual stuff is off, like the fallout stuff. But it is a TV show and I just ignore stuff like that even though I know better.

Ok, I think I missed what you were talking about, I thought the missles actually went up, and the explosion in the sky was a new bomb, not one of the ones they were looking at. I still want to know what Hawkins was talking about, their targets or ours. I get what you are saying about the power theory, good call.

Not much GOOD information revealed in last nights episode.
Still dont know crap about Hawkins.
I am gathering Jake and Chris went to steal something and Chris got shot and killed. I am also thinking Chris is Emily's brother.

Hawkins was surprised that NY was not destroyed. They also said it was a bomb in a steel drumb, the same thing Hawkins buried in his basement.
what do you guys think?

A few things...

1. The nukes launched from us, probably to counter attack someone, or something. Although, it is possible that they were launched by someone who had hijacked the silos.

2. The EMP was not a nuke. One theory, which helps the silos were hijacked theory, was that the US launched the EMP to prevent anyone else from launching more nukes from the hijacked silos. However, problem with this is that the nukes would have been underground and more than protected from an EMP pulse. More likely, it was a story element needed to simply knock the power out again, since the power coming on was simply a tool to help add drama with the podium and telephone things.

3. From what they said about New York, this does not appear to be a military attack. They stopped a truck, which leads me to believe (remember what the president was saying in the first episode) that this was a terrorist attack.

4. I'm leaning that the missiles launched were to basically destroy who we think helped with the attacks. In other words, there is a country that no longer exists. We can assume it was a third world country (ala Iran, North Korea) because if it was Russia or China or something there would have been far more damage, and missiles launched. Plus, local ground delivered 20 kiloton bombs don't make sense for a military attack.

When I first started watching this I thought it was going to be Lost like. Then I realized, really quickly, that was more of a movie of the week type thing. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun show, but I learned really quick to take a lot of things in the show at face value, and that there is no point to over analyze stuff on this show. Not to mention the production value of the show is no were near Lost.

I wish they'd back down on the music a bit...it takes away from the "drama" scenes when the "drama" music hits.

I don't see this show lasting longer than a season or two, and it should be written to last as long. American TV needs to have more shows that last one or two seasons, as a lot of Japanese shows do.

All in all, this is fun show...albeit a bit of a "simple" show.

Best episode so far this season. Light on the "useless drama," heavy on the plot development.

I still have to suspend belief on the whole radiation stuff, but other wise nothing to big with this episode caught my eye.

I love the whole private security thing. Good stuff and looks like it will be a great story arc.

Also, we find out Skeet's character was in Iraq as a truck driver. Hrmm...why do I feel there is more to that than meets the eyes.

Finally some development with Hawkins. Is he telling the truth? Is he really a fed? Who knows, but I know I want to find out.

I thought Skeet's brother, Allen I think, showed some balls with the whole doctor thing. Really good idea, wasn't expecting that.

We'll see if they continue to new Arabic British doctor, or if he will fade away into the town. I have a feeling him being Arabic, or at least that's what he looks to me, will come into play in a later episode, especially with the wanna be mayor looking for "suspicious" types.

I'll really be interested to see if this show lasts more than a season. Part of me hopes its a one season full story, but part of me fears it will be stretched, and ultimately fall weak in the second season.

Agreed

It was fantastic, I really can't wait to see the next one (which I saw the preview and IMO seems to be awesome);
With LOST and Heroes this one is becoming one of my favorites

Definitly something up with hawkins. I believe you are right about the daughter planting that Homeland Security badge and something about his going to rescue his wife and kids 2 days beforehand does not feel right. He may have been hinting when he said to Gray "That there had to be people on the inside helping them smuggle the bombs in" and thats why he moved there 2 days prior. He knew something or he was in on the deal. Perhaps thats where he got all that cash from.

Hey man, nice shot....

Hawkins saves the day again with a blops right to the head. Didn't even phase the Ravenwood guys. I'm sure they're going to show up with a BANG sooner rather than later.

All in all, good show tonight. Progressed a few lingering elements of the series. The writers, or director, seem to be settling into the show significantly more than the previous episodes. Pacing is better, drama is toned down and significant when it happens.

I was very satisfied with how the "affair" deal went down. It was short, realistic, and the way it needed to be. I still think they need to buy back on the drama music. It's the same song every time and now it's starting to detract from scenes.

Hawkins showed once again why he's the baddest mofo in Jericho.

Jake looked like he was in over his head, so maybe he's not as "trained" as we may think.

Good progress with blondie tonight.

The Ranger book segment at the end was neat. I thought it was a nice touch.

Next week looks to be good. Chinese supplies falling from the sky? I think it's a red herring to throw us off...but a good idea nonetheless. I'm sticking with terrorist attack until things are otherwise blatantly pointed out. Only two episodes left to go. Ratings are falling though, only pulled a 6 last week. HOWEVER, Dancing With the Stars is now over, so maybe that will change.

Thoughts?

Has anyone besides me come back to the show after the hiatus? Just wondering what anyone thought about Hawkins' partner(?) and their tie in to the attack. There was obvious foreknowledge, but I'm still trying to figure if they were involved or just knew and were taking advantage of what was coming?

I've seen every episode. Want to watch last nights again:

www.cbs.com...

I don't know about the rest of you but this show is pretty awesome. I hope people are watching it so there will be a story next year. I especially liked this episode. I felt like a kid again reading a post nuclear story in my room. With New Bern showering mortars on Jericho, while alliances were made and broken. The Green family at the front with the former mayor Johnston Green, stepping up to lead with the new mayor (idiot) screwing up. Hawkins finally deciding that this was his home and that he would trust these people. I does irritate me that Emily's dad is such a loser, taking 100% of the guns and leaving them high and dry. If Hawkins wasn't such a great collector they would be done. I'm really waiting for Jake to move to the for front and become the leader he seems to be. Hawkins could be his General, no body is better than him at planning ahead.

I really wish there were more episodes left. There appears to be only one, with a full fledged battle Alamo style against New Bern. Out manned, gunned, there will be a battle for survival. Man I look forward to this show.
Plus in the coming attractions I saw Heather is still alive.

I can't believe they left the season hanging like that :bnghd:

I do like how they are starting to unfold the underlying plot as a conspiracy leaning towards inside job and setting up the hold out (Hawkins) as the patsy. I'm somewhat annoyed though that they killed off Jake and Eric's dad. I guess they needed a way to allow Jake to rise to the leadership position on the show, but after that A-Team like fire fight (you know where 8 bajillion bullets are fired and no one gets hit) one bullet takes out a main player.

They better bring this show back next season. If it leaves off here I just might go insane...

I Can't believe CBS mismanaged this show this badly

I'm boycotting CBS from now on.

First we need a battle to go off between town. I don't want the army to show up until after the freaken battle. There should have been two more shows.

A. Full on battle with New Bern. With the guys in black pulls some special ops moves taking out communication. Battle looks hopeless, like the battle of the Alamo.

B. The second show fifty minutes worth is the ending of the battle with Jericho pulling it out in the end. Jakes leads them to victory. The ending is the army showing up, and Hawkins getting nervous about hiding the bomb again.

CBS suxs.



This show now that its canceled should be picked up by ABC. Then it would turn into another lost juggernaut.

Well Royal, not only should there have been 2 more episodes, there should be another season, but there isn't.

CBS ends `Jericho' in new schedule

"Jericho" started out strong last fall for CBS. However, like "Lost" on ABC and "Heroes" on NBC, many viewers abandoned the show after it went on a long midseason hiatus.

"We lost a lot of steam," said Kelly Kahl, CBS' chief scheduling executive. "I know we had loyal viewers ... but the show sort of lost its engine and wasn't performing."




[edit]I just noticed the last line in your post Royal where you mention the cancellation...duh


And I agree some other network should pick this up...It was definitely in my top 3 for the year...Lost, Heroes, Jericho[/edit]

This just burns my ass.


I watched every episode of this show, and went out of my way to get episodes that I missed.
I just hate it when the networks do this to me. :bnghd:

ABC should pick up Jericho

Since they are planning on running Lost at the 8pm Central line up. Jericho could lead in or follow lost. These two serial stories would jell well together. ABC seem's to be the only network without its head up its
. They would know how to do the story right.

If anybody starts a petition to keep the show, or get ABC to pick it up, Let me know I'm in.

I'm DONE with CBS.

I didn't know the deaf girl from Jerhico was an extra for the first season of LOST. But, sure enough, there she is getting firewood.

June 6, 2007

To the Fans of Jericho:

Wow!

Over the past few weeks you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion in support of a prime time television series. You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard.

As a result, CBS has ordered seven episodes of “Jericho” for mid-season next year. In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there to be more “Jericho,” we will need more viewers.

A loyal and passionate community has clearly formed around the show. But that community needs to grow. It needs to grow on the CBS Television Network, as well as on the many digital platforms where we make the show available.

We will count on you to rally around the show, to recruit new viewers with the same grass-roots energy, intensity and volume you have displayed in recent weeks.

At this time, I cannot tell you the specific date or time period that “Jericho” will return to our schedule. However, in the interim, we are working on several initiatives to help introduce the show to new audiences. This includes re-broadcasting “Jericho” on CBS this summer, streaming episodes and clips from these episodes across the CBS Audience Network (online), releasing the first season DVD on September 25 and continuing the story of Jericho in the digital world until the new episodes return. We will let you know specifics when we have them so you can pass them on.

On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for expressing your support of “Jericho” in such an extraordinary manner. Your protest was creative, sustained and very thoughtful and respectful in tone. You made a difference.

Sincerely,

Nina Tassler
President, CBS Entertainment

P.S. Please stop sending us nuts



Lets hope that the summer replays will help new viewers discover the series.
