The Pilot of a new series is always make or break for a series. If the pilot is good then chances are you will continue watching the show.
I just finished the Pilot of Jericho and I found it quite intrigued, that it made me continue watching it. There just was a nuclear bomb in a place near Jericho, and it might not have been the only one.
Is America under attack? Or was this a mistake or something gone wrong? Those are the questions that most people of Jericho are asking.
Character building have been quite good so far. The characters I am finding most intriguing so far are those of Jake Green and Robert Hawkins.
