I was glad to see “Jericho” come back, and I will be sorry to see it go. The Sci-Fi Channel has been airing reruns. I wonder if they might pick it up and make new episodes, as they did with “The Outer Limits” and “Stargate SG-1.” Hope so.
Thanks for the info. Mr. Cinnamon had informed me that, despite the valiant nut campaign last year, the ratings this season were terrible. Kind of a weird story. I’ll be interested to see how they finish the show.
I stopped watching after the episode when the whole town came out to save the corn field to the strains of The Wallflowers. Blechh. Did it get better or worse after that? Did flesh eating zombies ever show up?
I LOVED the first season of this show. It was an interesting survival story, and had some gutsy moves (I was surprised CBS would even air a show about the United States getting nuked by terrorists, considering all those sensitive types out in Kansas who aren’t over 9/11 yet)…the problem with the show, and the reason that I lost interest about halfway into the second episode of the second season, is that the town has electricity, communication, food…they’re almost back to normal, at least as far as survival goes. Now it’s just military stuff and government conspiracies. If it’s gonna continue that way, it’s just as well that it’s going out now.
I wonder how such an attack would truly effect the workings of the states. My own Arkansas, for example had no push pins in it indicating nuclear blasts. I have no idea how long our nuclear power plants would last, how long rice, soybeans and Tyson chickens would feed us. Would trains continue to bring coal from the West, would barges move along the Mississippi?
That’s why the show got cancelled. It was so horrible during the first 16 episodes or so that it totally turned off the people who were interested in its premise. And then there weren’t enough people around to see how much it improved in the second 16 episodes to warrant keeping the show alive.
Unfortunately, unlike some other prematurely cancelled shows, the shows creators brought this upon themselves.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the show the first season, though we were sick of the whole kumbaya thing too.
It definitely got better, but when they changed the time to 10:00 pm we had to quit watching. We have to get up too early to stay up that late. I’m sure we’re nto the only people who were in this boat.
