Jericho...thoughts???


I'm a sucker for these types of plots, is it worth a watch? I assuming it's nothing amazing, but just looking for something new on Netflix to watch before going to sleep at nights and thought I remembered some people liking it on here.

TIA

You will burn through season 1, i sure did.

i lost interest halfway through the shortened season 2/final season. they had to wrap it up the best that could, but it is underwhelming after how good season 1 is.

Same here. I don't blame them for Season 2, but they had to rush through it so fast just to have some sort of conclusion.

Basically, plot points that would have taken 2 to 4 seasons to unravel were done in 5 episodes.

Season 1 was great...wish they would have put more effort into the 2nd season.

Great first season.

Subpar second, but I don't blame them because they knew they had to wrap it up based on what CBS told them. If they could have drawn it out longer I'm sure it would have been great.

It was at least nice to get some resolution on the show. Even if it wasn't the greatest.

Hmmm, I don't necessarily agree. Jake had just as mysterious a past with "magical" abilities as he did.

Jericho was awesome. It went the way of another awesome show called Firefly. If there were two series I could bring back it would be those two.

Jericho is awesome.

There are two aspects to the show:

The first focuses on the interactions between a group of people while they deal with the events going on around them. The first season spends about 50% of it's time on this.

The second focuses on the macro political events that are going on. The first season spends about 50% on this and the second season spends about 85% on it.

Personally, I enjoyed the macro political story lines much more than the human interest story lines, so I really enjoyed season 2, although I agree in that it would have been nice to have it more developed.

Anyway, Jericho is really great and if you enjoy these types of plots then you will like Jericho.

Loved the show. I was one of the few in the Jericho threads back in the day. I agree with what most had said, about how season one is awesome and season two was good, but rushed because they got cancelled and knew they had to wrap shite up hella fast.

I wish the groundswell of support it got a few years back would've earned another season or two, but it didn't (and they just got the comic or whatever).

Peyton Manning twin.

This and more specifically the political slant of Season 2. Kind of brilliant how it all played out (given the time constraints). Very underrated and I'd enjoy the heck out of something else like this.

Tried to get into it, I kept falling asleep every episode which bummed me out. Take the story and give it to HBO or AMC.
