Storyline

Jericho is a drama about what happens in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion in the once peaceful town of Jericho. Following the battle with New Bern, the citizens of Jericho begin reconstruction efforts to restore the town's power and communication with the outside world. As the country's new leaders, the Cheyenne government, attempt to establish their stronghold in the region, Jericho's citizens become suspicious of their new leaders and question why their community is so important to this newly formed government.

The Best
25 June 2011 | by derka-90-994370See all my reviews

This show was the best television offered in a long time, in my opinion. I think this version of an apocalyptic scenario was more widely accepted because of it's realism. I also think that was the reason it was cancelled. When I first heard of the show I was immediately interested and watched all of the episodes in a couple of days. People just about always say it was cancelled because of ratings. I don't think so. Check the ratings yourself, Jericho's ratings were just as good as or better than Fringe and Burn Notice (I watch those). Those two are still going strong. And Jericho had way better ratings than a lot of other shows that are still on. The order was given by the big wigs in charge to axe it, so it was axed. Once yo pull your head out of the sand and do some honest research, you will find that the people who control your government and the people who control your television, movies, news, radio, etc. usually are one in the same or at least run in the same circles of powerful people. If you ever get a chance to watch it and read the subsequent season 3 comics, then do yourself a favor and do it. If you have an IQ over 75 then you will realize by the end of the first season why it was cancelled. Sorry, I really went off on a tangent there. Besides all of what I said, Jericho was really well acted, very well written, and you will be wanting more when you are finished. The Best.
