  • What annoys me...

    10
    What annoys me is all the people that can not believed this show was cancelled. If you were all watching this on CBS when it aired and not on Netflix in reruns perhaps the show would have gone a longer length.
  • The only thing that annoys me...

    10
    I love Jericho and I miss it dearly. But I do have one complaint. It's not even directed at the show, either, but more the different sites that have profiles for the show; namely, Wikipedia and IMDB. They both state that Jake is the youngest son of the Green family, while the bio's on stated that Jake was the oldest and Eric was his younger brother. I would think the network that produced the show would know, right? And the whole time I watched, I viewed Jake as the oldest, considering he's Johnston Jacob Green and normally the first born son is named after the father. I don't know, I just thought I'd voice that, and see what anyone else thinks about it.



    Other than that, BRING JERICHO BACK!moreless
  • Jericho is an amazing ride

    9.5
    There has never been a show that has effected me on a variety levels as Jericho, I could relate to so many characters, they were absolutely realistically portrayed and the show balanced the characterizations with the plot like no other. The musical score and editing was superb and some of the musical choices really added to the level of immersion.



    Perhaps streaming the series (watching the eps back to back ) has a different immersion level than watching on a weekly basis and I would recommend watching it that way. The show takes a few episodes to build up steam and explore characters but when it starts rolling it is an intense ride. It shines most when it takes its time and gives attention to detail. I would love to see this show come back with the main cast set five years in the future.moreless
  • Authentic disaster TV

    9.5
    Set to a small town just after nuclear bombs wipe out most of the big cities of the US, the show is a show about survival, human comradeship and how easily lives can change.



    What makes Jericho so good is how authentic it is. You can basically feel the panic of the population of Jericho about their situation, you can see them make irrational choices and, when they end up at war with another city, you see the confusion and the shock that this is actually happening to them. They really do seem like ordinary people thrown into extreme situations (with the exception of Hawkins, who might be a bit unrealistic character-wise). You have people who've never fired a gun in their life standing guard and mentally preparing themselves to kill people if they are attacked. It seems real, it seems believable. You can relate. That is the strength of this show, in addition to a good plot. I just finished season 1 and am very sad the second season only has 8 episodes. Also, some plot lines just end. But it makes sense in this situation. Suddenly, a character dies in the middle of their plot line. That's what happens in circumstances such as this. That strengthens the show aswell, and makes it even worse to see beloved characters go.



    The dynamic between the two Green brothers is almost worth the show alone, but I watch it for all the characters. They all have strenghts and flaws, they do stupid things that make you want to yell at them and they don't always think ahead. Just like everyone else.



    You should watch this show! It is one of the best shows I have ever come across.moreless
  • One of the best TV Dramas that I've ever watched!

    8.5
    I am not that avid of a TV Drama fan however I started watching Jericho on Netflix and am totally hooked! I think it is one of the best shows that I have ever watched. The story-line and performances are all brilliant. I found out recently they continued Season 3 as a comic book. It is sad that the show got cancelled.
