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.
