Jericho opens with a very calm first 20 minutes.
We witness a small family affair in this small town called Jericho.
However, things soonly turn bad, as a mushroom cloud shows up on the sky...
the adventure of the citizens of Jericho starts right here.
Jericho's mainly about survival and cooperating. At least it seems like that for now.
How people are managed to survive without any incoming supply, television, radio, anything. And how are they capable of cooperating, do things together to help each other.
Unfortunately, this episode couldn't really establish the post apocalyptic feeling; instead, we got a bunch of cliches: the cheesy monologue of the mayor at the end, the overused tracheotomy scene, and the girl who's totally deaf and blind.
However.The show has a very original idea and a gripping storyline; those little cliches won't distract you for long.
