Storyline

Everone in Jericho was waiting, then suddenly there's a short automatic, probably nation-wide telephone-message from Homeland Security: they are taking over. Shortly afterward Internet, radio and TV are reserved by the military. Jake's mother insists his dad proved his love by fixing everything after Jake left; it's time to tell him the full truth. A power cut is followed by an overload which starts terrible fires all over the place, threatening various machines too, and thus the water supply. The Green men lead the fire fight with fair success. The mayor tells Jake it doesn't really matter what he did in San Diego, he was changed by it from a stupid punk to a fellow to be proud of. The mysterious Robert 'Rob' Hawkins proves very handy at many things, not fathering. Written by KGF Vissers

Not bad
30 November 2007 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Not bad, but one of the slower episodes. Character, and plot development is part of this episode. Disastors, trouble, and family problems are a device for character development. The viewer learns Hawken's has trouble being a father. Skeet is developing character and leadership skills. The show give us the primal view of humanity as people struggle for survival. Cooperation and humanity is balance with the brutality of people. Will the town lose it's soul. I hope not. 6 out of 10. I think the town is headed for some bad times. I see no sign of God or spirituality in the show. There is a battle for survival. The battle is also of who we are as people.
