  • After a nuclear disaster caused by several terrorist attacks destroys most of America, residents of a small Kansas town must come to terms with a new and very different reality.

    One of the best shows a round¬ me and my friend used to sit and watch this all the time! untill they decided to cancel it, which in my opinion was a massive mistake by CBS! they really do not know how good this show actually is and how many fans there really were! it has a great story, great characters and great acting to boot! some of my personal favourites being Jake Green and Robert Hawkins! they had a great background, from hat we know about them anyway! but as it got cancelled we still do not know the their full backgrounds! the series reminded me and my friend of resient evil a little bit! specially when they dont know the rest of the world is dead or alive and they can't really leave the town, apart from nearby towns like New Bern!

    We the viewers are really gutted that this got cancelled as there are still loads of burning questions that need answering for closure of the characters! mainly Jake and Hawkins, but also the company/Boss who are after Hawkins, Ravenwood and most of all the war that started between the 2 towns! will they find more survivors, will they survive?? as of now nobody knows! but the first season was a great season, every episode generally opened something up and either closed it in the same episode towards the end or in the next episode, the only long lasting plots that were never answered was 'What had Jake been doing in those 6 years away?', 'Is Hawkins a good guy or is he still lying to save his family?'

    Everybody should watch this show and they should definatly being it back!
  • America is bombed and residents of the small Kansas Town of Jericho must come to terms with the harsh new reality.

    A Brilliant show that combines real-life facts with a sci-fi situation, Jericho is a show that offers something for a more action oriented, drama viewer. It is an interesting show that gets better and better as the season goes on. It is always unexpected and whats's more is the fact that it is a pretty realistic play of events that we can relate to. In short Jericho is one of the best new shows to come on for a long time and it should not get cancelled. Jericho's storyline allows for only 2-3 seasons max but it should be allowed to live them out as it is an awesome show that the whole family can watch.
  • Jericho is wonderful! Jericho is fantastic! Jericho is awesome! Jericho is perfect!

    Jericho is probably THE best show on the air today. I am hoping and praying that it will return to me because quite frankly, I NEED my daily fix! And no, I didn't say weekly! I need to at least see a picture from one of the episodes each day to keep my alive!

    I don't think I will survive it is cancelled!

    So to all the fans, don't give up!!!

    And to CBS - Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease keep it on!!!
  • This show which somewhat seems influenced by many cult classic movie and video games.

    Seems like the show has been air on bad times and not marketed correctly. The show will prove it's worth once it sells it's DVD's and takes it's place as a cult classic. I just hope that CBS's poor understanding of their clientele doesn't effect the second season of this amazing show.
  • I talk about my new best friend all the time! I wish I could see my new best friend every day! I love my new best friend! Jericho is my new best friend!

    Jericho is a cleverly written storyline with some of the most talented actors I have ever seen! From Jake to Hawkins to Gail to Mary, every character is so well rounded with, not only wonderful lines, but a difference between them all that makes you unable to turn the channel.

    Jericho is a small town that has been thrown into chaos when the world around them may not be anymore. The storyline's that ensue are wonderful, fantastic, beautiful and completely spellbinding!

    The show is definately my favourite show!
  • Jericho is the best character-driven serial on television. We need a second season!

    What a powerful show! Successfully avoids the "end of the world" hype and focuses on the human element of survival beyond, yet doesn't sugar-coat the realities of a post nuclear America. In such a reality, NO character is safe, and the show doesn't let you relax by making certain characters "safe" from destruction (can you say "Jack Bauer?). The season finale was the perfect blend of pathos, hope, tension, and cliffhangar. My only fear is that Gerald McRaney is simply jumping from a sinking ship, and we'll never know if Jericho survives the second attack fron New Bern. Here's hoping CBS has some sense and brings back one of the best character driven shows on television today!
  • This is one of the best shows that i have ever seen.

    I just love this show i really hope you bring this show back for a second season.I was glad when it finally came back on because i had watched it from the pilot and then all of a sudden it was not on no more so glad to see it finished.Hope to buy it on dvd soon.
  • This show just gets better every week!

    The last time I was this exited about a show a plane had just crashed on a deserted island and we have all been along for a very strange ride ever since. Jericho has really become the smartest and most interesting show on TV for me. The acting is top notch. The special effects could be a lot beter but they do a pretty good job for a show that isn't getting the kind of production budget that shows like LOST which I mentioned earlier are getting. The writing is what makes this show though. In the Pilot when Jake turnes to his brother Eric and says "We were both born on 3rd base, quit acting like you hit a triple" I was like wow, what a great line! This show has wow'ed me several times this year and I only hope CBS is smart enough to bring this great show back for another season!
  • A town tying to surive in a dramatically changed world.

    I really love good tv and Jericho fits the bill. Survial just to live in a crazy changed world. The characters are really well done. Hawkins is the good guy who has played a bad ass. You have to watch Jericho a few times in case you missed something very good. You have to take the time to watch it and realize it is one of the better shows on tv right now if you want something different from American Idol or mindless tv ( reality shows ). This is not fr the faint of heart there is violence but would you try to protect your home from a rouge town? I would.

  • "World Best"

    I love Jericho it really speaks to be in how this world may become, it is a great show and i also like the acting and eveyrthing, the bombs the music the feeling and the love you get out of this show. There is Jake, and i don't really think Heather is dead and it's sad and eyes popping and eveyrthing else, reallly a work of art and fabolously the best. Skeet Ulrich is one of the reasons i watch this show, it's the biomb, literaly. I hope it doesn not get canceled becuase if it does i'm sueing CBS, jk, but i really lie it i hope ot see it next year with at least another two seasons.
  • Wouldn't miss an episode if I don't have too. If I do, I watch on the internet.

    Wasn't to long ago that we were looking in the sky for the bombs and praying each night that we would see tomorrow. The bomb shelters maybe gone, but the radiation signs are still visible in locations where bomb shelters used to be. When I was in school, we practiced drills for nuclear bombs and the fall out. I was reared north of Oak Ridge, TN. I remember the danger.
  • A series of nuclear bombs go off all over the United States. One town has not been hit..... Jericho.

    This show is like no other. In my opinion, it's the most underrated show on tv today, especially here on I would have thought there would be many more fans who love the show. I believe it has a very original concept, brilliant young actors, and the potential to smack everything else out of the way.
  • Jericho, Kansas is an ordinary town in a not-so-ordinary world. Nuclear attacks on multiple major cities have torn the fabric of America apart. Jericho stands as a beacon of hope in a world that has gone crazy.

    Jericho is one of the most under rated shows on television today. The concept, the acting, the storyline are all first rate. To be fair to anyone reading this, I don't think this show is a ten, more like a 9.5, but it deserves to have a 9.0 at the very least. In the very first episode, the show creates a world that is hidden at the back of most Americans minds. A world in which terrorists have landed a cripling blow on the USA. What results is a 21st century version of the wild west. Raising the question, how do we survive without the technology that we have today? As the show progresses it gets steadily better, with the developement of characters and several well thought out and suspenseful story lines. While some people might have found the show a bit slow to start off with, I would say that the pay off is that much better because of it. I am looking forward to the season finale, and I hope that the show returns next year for another season.
  • Jericho has captivated me from the very 1st episode.

    This show has recently become one of my favorites.I remember being highly skeptical of this show when the previews and promotions first started airing. But I very clearly remember watching the pilot episode and being completely sucked in right from the first moment. This is a rare kind of TV show-one that grabs hold of you and simply doesn't let go. Jericho has captivated me from the very 1st episode.Can't wait for next week to see what happens! Just Love it!
  • Jericho has captivated me from the very 1st episode, and has proven to be a quality show week in and week out.

    Jericho is a show about how a small town must come together after a series of nuclear attacks have hit the US.

    As the show has progressed throughout it's 1st season, many very interesting storylines have developed. Jake, the main character, comes back to his home town to see his family. His relationship with his father who is the mayor of the town, is a very strained one. Jake was a rebel when he was young running around with a bad crowd. During his time away, he led a very mysterious life.

    Once the bombs went off, Jake stays with his family to help the town survive. Eric, his brother, is married but is in love with another woman.

    Hawkins a very late arrival to the town of Jericho, is surrounded with intrigue and mystery. He claimed to be an FBI agent, but he acts very suspicious. The town comes together, to make sure they have the essentials to survive. Food, Heat, Electricity among other things are scarce, and need to travel to other locations and bargain, trade, and sometimes steal.

    Crime is also a major concern for the town, and must maintain order and a working government to combat the problem.

    Outsiders also come to Jericho, to take what they can, and the town must defend itself from these people.

    We have comed to learn that the attacks might not have come from a foreign enemy, but from a group of fanatics in the US, which Hawkins knows all to well.

    Jericho provides plot twists coming from all angles, and the character's development has been excuted perfectly. It has brought to us a show with a very unique premise, which i've not seen before, and am looking forward to the further development of this exciting series.
  • Awesome, totally awesome.

    I really like this show because it's talking about something that could happen. And even though I don't live in the USA it could still affect me. I like drama shows so this one surely is one of my favorite. I can't wait to see what happens next to our dear "heroes". Hopefully, spring is coming and some of their problems will be better now. I wonder how everything is going in other states. I like the effects and all that stuff, really good. I also like the mysteries that are going on with it. Awesome. I love it. Keep it going.
  • Nothing so special, but nice story!

    I wanted this to be a good show as the premise seems good for a television vehicle. And the main plot is good; the problems faced in the aftermath of some kind of nuclear explosions is a good plot line. However, the subplots of intrigue, conspiracy and apathy ruin this show for me.

    Of the minor subplots, the reaction of the towns teenagers is unfathomable. They want to have parties where they are willing to pay $20 for a bag of chips at the local store amidst hoarding and panic. The kids continue to act as if nothing has happened and continue their bullying to the town nerd, save for the one rich girl he seeks attention from.

    The second unbelievable subplot is the town bar. I have never seen a bar so packed after thermonuclear detonation and seemingly as long as the drinks keep coming, the apocalypse is of little concern to the bar patrons. I just think the teens and the barflies might have a different reaction in face of the potential end of the world.

    In the final analysis, I will watch this show, but if I miss an episode or two, I will not care. The real great show this season, (full of promise and a potential vehicle for the great Science fiction writers of the world much the same as the original Star Trek did)is Eureka on the Sci-Fi channel.
  • Jericho is very ambitious yet worthy of making a small town big.

    Jericho gives a very interesting, amusing and convincing interpretation of how life would be after a major national disaster strikes. What other perfect place could there be which could represent intimate drama than this small town wherein everybody knows each other? The manner of discovering mysteries in this show leaves the audience with endless questions but, at the same time, satisfied with each episode’s dramatic and action-packed events. The added mystery regarding the identity of our hero, Jake, who was characterized as a prodigal son in the story, definitely intrigues the viewers. The same goes for all the other mysterious characters in the show. The show also points out the limits of human emotion. There are several actions taken by some characters that we wouldn’t expect them to do or even be capable of doing. This makes Jericho a very unpredictable show, which is basically its strength in keeping the viewers tuned in.
  • no show can match this on cbs shame on the american people who don't watch this show !

    Jericho is a story of something that could really happen here in america nuclear bombs go off in many cities leaving this small town in the dark and not knowing whats going on trying to survive with limited power and food and i like the show and find it scary because it has alot of real things that could appen in the show and maybe thats why the ratings have fallen cause it is a little scary watching it but the story is amazine very good idea for a show and never boring the second best drama on tv right behind the black donnellys and i would love to see it come back for antoher season cause i am hooked on it and im sure that if you wathced it that you would easily be hooked too
  • Somewhat a mix of Lost and Stephen King's The Stand, this is a good series. Nothing earth shattering, but good none the less.

    Following the footsteps of Lost, and borrowing a page from many post-apocalyptic stories (The Stand is the first one that comes to my mind), we can see this is a money oriented production.

    This is both a good and a bad thing. A good thing, cause you can expect some decisions that should please the overall public. And a bad thing, since the moment the ratings drop, there is a very good chance it will simply canceled, maybe even without a rushed ending.

    I expect this series to have a good first two seasons, then going downhill from there. Of course, not only I can be wrong, I really expected I am. But if what we have seen on the TV during the past few years it any indication ... well, you get the picture.

    The mainline of the series is the town of Jericho, trying to survive an America shattered by the explosion of several small nuclear devices on major towns by terrorists. You will get the usual "long lost love" and "brand new passions" twists, as well as a dosage of government plots, and we can see that right after the first 2 episodes.

    If you have the time, you might enjoy it. Otherwise, don't cancel any appointments you have. You can always catch the rerun.
  • Life after the Apocalypse...

    I love the premise of this show. When I saw previews, I thought, "This would make a good movie of the week." Sci Fi channel always airs those guilty pleasure apocalyptic movies. However, this show stands out because it deals with the fallout, not immediately afterwards, but literally with the rebuilding of society. For that, I respect the genius of it. And it can go on for many issues to tackle. Will mankind, given a fresh slate, turn to baser human instincts or try to maintain "civil" life. Will greed overtake? Will men come to war over territory? Over the more precious commodity of food? Water? These issues/themes will make for interesting episodes.
    However, having said this, the show has some issues. The acting is subpar. Seriously, it is. I don't blame the actors so much as the dialogue given to them. It's just...bad. Maybe in other projects they'd be better. Here, though, relationships are forced. Chemistry is simply non-existent. I don't believe the romantic connections on the show nor the friendships. I'll continue to watch, because that's what I do and the premise is just so unique, but I really wish they would step it up. This is about a show dealing with rebuilding life not an tv action film trying to play up dramatics.
  • 'Jericho' is a slice of the Sci-Fi genre of what happens after a world changing nuclear event. This event is viewed from the perspective of a small town. Mix in the mystery of the who/why/how of this life altering event and you have a can't miss show.

    'Jericho' has intriguing story lines at family, town, regional, national and international levels. There are power struggles within the town after normal social controls are destroyed along with cities. News from 'outside' of the town paints a similar picture of upheaval. Washington DC no longer exists and new power centers are developing to take control. Mysteries and their later revelations are part of the excellent writing of 'Jericho'. The two key characters are the wayward son who returns home after an unexplained absence and the new neighbor who arrives shortly before the nuclear events. Are they good, evil or somewhere between the two. You do not need to be a Sci-Fi fan to enjoy this show - it really is about people and society after a nuclear event. The excellent casting and writing is what carries this concept.
    Take a look.
  • not a tv show i have ever seen before.

    this show keeps me on the edge of my seat, it makes me bite my nails the whole time i watch it. I didn't think i would like the show but i said hey, i'll give it a try, second episode in i was hooked. give it a shot. its most deff worth it. Not like any other show out there. I kinda thought it would be on the same track as invasion, totally blows it out of the water.
  • Terrorist bomb multiple us cities

    This show takes place in Jericho Kansas after terrorists nuke multiple U.S. Cities. It starts out with the president about to make a speech about terrorism when the screen goes blank and outside they see a mushroom cloud. The show has some romance and a lot of mystery like where has Jake been for the past few years and who exactly is this guy Hawkins and what did he know about the attacks? One thing that I like about the show is that we don't find out any information untill they do. This is one of the best new show of the year!!
  • who though of this? well who ever did i woukd say its a 10 on my favorit tv list. this show has it all drama, actione and is the best on tv yet. with trying to survive and yet tring to keep everyone calm it is the best show ever!!! Watch it!

    jerocho is the best show on tv yet this year. with action and adventure and drama and much more. tring to survive a bomming of the US and with every contry practicly whiped out they need to learn to comunicate and note fight but in every city there has to be jerks and this show has plenty of them when every one is freeked. Murders did some say murders? thats right there are a cuple murders in the show and i can not believe this show it has everything a show needs. kids and adults will love this show so watch it.
  • It's definitely an underappreciated TV show that has a great potential. Already in the beginning, I knew it would turn into a great show even if the pilot wasn't the best episode I've seen. But! It just gets better by each episode.

    It's definitely one of those TV show that make you ask yourself questions, a TV show that's so mysterious that you wonder what might lie below the surface or what might be revealed next. Jericho was maybe not promising in its pilot episode but it has just gotten better by each episode since then. Now in its 15th episode, it's in the top. It is maybe a typical American show- the thing with terrorism, nuclear weapons, and things like that- but other than that, it's a real good TV show. Skeet Ulrich lifts the entire show to higher skies than it would have reached without him. A promising TV show that might be a classic.
  • a bit similar with 'The Invasion'. Small town, stuck in middle, leadership crisis, disaster. ('The Invasion got Alien, Jericho had Mushroom cloud)

    Nuclear terrorist attacks leave America in a state of disaster. Cut off from the world outside, a small Kansas town deals with the after effect. After big mushroom cloud appear in Denver, the story begin. Jericho is one of the best new TV shows this season, hopefuly..

    (there's some chemistry between Jake and Mr.Hawkins, somethin like dark-secret from the past)

    Related to the series: Nuclear Attack / Kansas / Nuclear Holocaust Aftermath / Small Town / Nuclear Fallout / MushroomCloud / Disaster / Shelter / Bunker / Radiation / Merchenaries / The Invasion / California / FBI / Terrorist / Past / Secret /
  • Awesome show love it

    What if you lived in a small town and suddenly the entire town is cut off from the rest of the world? When a nuclear cloud is spotted, the town of Jericho, Kansas is led to believe the worst as happened and that they may the only people alive. Complete chaos ensues and puts the entire town in danger, not from the threat of the possible nuclear explosion, but from each other. Awesome show, watch it all the time! AUSTRALIA popular show, the show shows what could potentially happen and the cast is great. I rate it 10 out of 10!
  • This show looks like the best show ever!

    This show looks like the best show ever! I was so mad because when I first saw this show on the air I was just so amazed and I really wanted to see more of it but unfortunately it totally conflicted with another show I was watching and I had been watching that show for a much longer time so I decided to watch that one instead of this one, I still am amazed by how cool this show looks! I really cant wait to see the season on the shelves of Wal-Mart because I will definitely buy it right away! I really like this show because it just pulls you in and I just want to see it so bad, I feel like if I start watching this show I will never stop though!
