CBS (ended 2008)




  • Season 1 Episode 11: Vox Populi

  • Nitpick: Even though Gray Anderson won election as mayor, how does this make him a feudal lord? Was there no concurrent election for town council?

  • The Morse code message heard over the title is:
    This message goes along with last week's message to read IT BEGINS WITH 6 AND ENDS WITH.

  • Nitpick: Why was Stanley yelling out at Bonnie? Growing up with her all his life, he of all people should have known that Bonnie wouldn't be able to hear him!

  • There hasn't been a murder in Jericho for 30 years.


    This is the message which appears at the beginning of the episode.

  • Johnston Green was the major of Jericho for 25 years.

  • The aerial satellite map that was zoomed in was from Google Earth program.

  • Jake and Emily's song is: "Nothing Compares to You" by Sinead O'Connor; from the album I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got (1990), famously written by Prince.

  • Season 1 Episode 10: Red Flag

  • Goof: The parachute used for carrying the generator is too small for the generator's weight. With that parachute the generator would have fallen down with high speed and become unusable.

  • Goof: When Eric is told that April is pregnant, the grandfather clock in the background shows the time 09:02. In episode 6 an EMP fries all electronics at 09:02 therefore all electric clocks would show this time. However, the grandfather clock is a wind-up, and would not be affected by the EMP.

  • Jake identified the aircraft as MiG-19s and Antonovs. He was correct in saying that they were '70s-era Russian aircraft. However, the fighters were of a pure-delta planform, unlike actual MiG-19s. Those fighters are most likely (considering the time when Jericho was made) to have been J-10s. At that time the only plane in the Chinese Air Force that had both delta wing and air refueling capacity were J-10s (to escort transport planes). All the MiG-19/J-6 (Chinese) were not in PLAAF inventory (as of 2006), and it also had a very short range. The transport aircraft were more likely the Chinese version of C-130 Hercules (which are called Y-8). Considering the plotline and Jake's comment, it is more likely he meant the Chinese version of Il-76, which are Ilushin not Antonovs.

  • Nitpick: Jericho is supposedly located near I-70. Surely there would have been other planes heard or seen before the airdrop, seeing as pilots regularly follow Interstate highways as navigational aids. This would be even more likely with only limited air traffic control still functioning.

  • Robert Hawkins believes that the writing on the packages are in the language of Mandarin. He does not recognize the writing on some of the food packaging.

  • There were 12 parcels which were dropped by the aircraft. 1-5 contained processed food, 6 and 8 contained medical and mechanical equipment, 10-12 contained grain and personal items. 7 and 9 were missing at first but when found, one contained food supplies and the other, a generator.

  • The Morse code message heard over the title is:

  • Season 1 Episode 9: Crossroads

  • Nitpick: Two Ravenwood Hummers are at Stanley's ranch getting gas, but the Hummers are diesel.

  • Goof: When Heather gets up from the bar, leaving Emily, the bottle of the single malt scotch is about three quarter full. In the next scene, when Kenchy comes over and Emily grabs the bottle to pour them a drink, the bottle is only half full.

  • Nitpick: Why not explode a portion of the eastern end of the bridge approach, effectively preventing the Ravenwood detachment from entering town? This would leave damage that could easily be repaired later without mechanized equipment. As Johnston Green wisely pointed out, the bridge might be needed as an evacuation route; not to mention the foodstuffs available from the farms on the other side of the bridge.

  • Nitpicks: When Emily enters the church at the end of the episode, most of the candles are fairly freshly lit--some looking like they've been lit within the last few minutes. This implies that someone else (the priest?) is there, and yet we see no one. It also seems highly unlikely that they would waste so many candles on an empty church when there's no supply readily available.

  • The Morse code message heard over the title is:
    AOV stands for Area of Vulnerability.
