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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Was aired in Australia within a day of being aired in the US up until the mid-season break. After the break, Network Ten failed to return the show to air for around 2 months after the US. This delay, combined with lack of advertising and a poor time slot led to Jericho being "shelved" after Episode #1.13 "Black Jack". This is a fate shared by several other cult shows, such as Battlestar Galactica (2004). See more »

Goofs

In the pilot, Jake Green drives through miles of what looks like prairie as he returns to Jericho. In fact, the terrain looks like California's Central Valley. Later in the series, much of the action set in the countryside was clearly not filmed in Kansas. It is the hilly scrubland of the montane chaparral around Los Angeles or points south, filmed during the summer. See more »

Crazy Credits

Each episode's title card is accompanied with audio containing only Morse code (dots and dashes, or short and long beeps) which, when translated, provides a short hint (around 3 words) about the episode to come. See more »

Alternate Versions

Due to music licensing issues, several episodes have had to be reedited or have music substituted for DVD release. See more »

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.
