  • I liked this episode well enough...

    But the scientific approach leaves a lot to be desired. I mean, wouldn't some of the nuclear affects reach Jericho long before it appeared to in this episode? (I'd have to say that this episode takes place roughly twelve to sixteen hours or so after Denver's been attacked -shortly before sunset (Pilot episode) to shortly after sunrise (this episode)-... and I'm thinking that most effects would take place much sooner than that... but that's just me)...

    A storm, according to this episode, reaches Jericho -coming from Denver anyhow- in less than two hours. Wouldn't that mean that some of the fall out, if not the heat, etc, reach Jerich within a matter of hours after the actual blast? I haven't looked up the scientific info on this, so I don't honestly know.

    But this *is* a science-fiction show, so I could live with some of the scientific flaws...

    But at least I'm starting to get a better idea of some of the character developments, though I do hope that this show stays around long enough for me to get a much better feel for them. After all, we still don't know what happened between Jake & his father... nor do we know why Robert Hawkins left Saint Louis, Mo for Jericho, Kansas. Is Robert Hawkins a good guy or a bad guy? What's with the marital discord between Robert and his wife, Darcy?

    And I'm getting a better idea of Jake's family dynamic, though there is a lot to be filled in... why would Jake's brother, Eric, cheat on his wife (April)... especially with Mary (the bar keeper)? What's sort of marital problems exist between Eric & April? That sort of thing...

    There does some to be some major family issues in the Green family; it'll be interesting to find out what... and to find out where Jake's been the last five years.

    It'll be interesting to see how some of the other characters develop as well; like what happened with Stacey (the little girl Jake saved on the bus)? And what happened with the bus driver? And where *was* Stanley (Bonnie's brother) during this episode? Was he one of the goons in the bar? Just something to think about...
