Jericho is good entertainment, it does a god job of portraying the best of the worst circumstances, Its basically a show of what most
armchair commandos imagine shtf to be, only you never really see shtf per say in Jericho, its always just out of sight if that makes sense, you hear
rumors of fighting in the next town, ect, but never really see it full scale...
I'd say in the mid west this portrayal might be close to what could happen in such an event, where everybody knows everybody and all the essentials
are in place, but as for most of us, shtf will not be simply a bumpy road, as it seems to be in Jericho, It will be either really bad in the en of
complete chaos, or really bad in the sense of complete control of an overbearing government... we wont be just out of reach like the Folks of Jericho,
will be right in it assuming we survived it.
I personally love the show, it gives a good idea of the emotional aspect and ideas as to what "they" as in the Government might do, it also
highlights many things that are very real and have come to life since 9/11 concerning laws and how Government will react in such a situation, why
Government or elements within it could benefit from such an event, and how corporations can become countries unto themselves as a result of them, and
what they will do to secure that complete control...
It makes you think and for that I believe it serves its purpose, Remember folks this isn't meant to be survivor man, its meant to be entertainment
and get ratings, don't be all emotional if they aren't eating rats and mice and look like the folks at Auschwitz...
Your expecting to much from a television series.
