Product Description

Jericho is a drama about what happens when a nuclear mushroom cloud suddenly appears on the horizon, plunging the residents of a small, peaceful Kansas town into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they're the only Americans left alive. But in this time of crisis, as sensible people become paranoid, personal agendas take over and well-kept secrets threaten to be revealed, some people will find an inner strength they never knew they had and the most unlikely heroes will emerge.

Amazon.com

Season One

Part-Lost, part-The Day After, television's first Code Orange serial drama very effectively taps into palpable post-9/11 dread. The residents of Jericho are literally in the dark when they are cut off from civilization in the wake of a nuclear blast. Has the United States been attacked? How many cities were destroyed? Was it terrorists, or something way more sinister? It is up to Johnston Green (an Emmy-worthy Gerald McRaney), the town's mayor (and series bedrock), to calm the community, keep its citizens from turning on each other, and protect them from predatory outsiders. Johnston's son, Jake (Skeet Ulrich), a "screw-up," returns home just prior to the blast following a mysterious five-year absence. Jake is at odds with his estranged father, who is running for reelection, and his brother, Eric (Kenneth Mitchell), his deputy. Nor is he welcomed back by his former girlfriend, Emily (Ashley Scott), now engaged to a man who is missing following the blast. With the fate of America in the balance, one would think that "small town problems" wouldn't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy new world, but it is Jericho's human dramas that resonate most deeply.

On the most cherished TV shows, characters come to feel like family. Jericho's characters come to feel like neighbors. Dale (Erik Knudson), the orphaned teenage outcast, forms an unexpected friendship with the town's spoiled mean girl, Skylar (Candace Bailey). Robert Hawkins (Lennie James), just arrived in town, introduces himself as a former cop from St. Louis, but his secret basement command center suggests otherwise. Gray Anderson (Michael Gaston), a mayoral candidate, politicizes the disaster to undermine Johnston. Stanley (Brad Beyer), a farmer, falls in love with his condescending IRS auditor from Washington, D.C. (Alicia Coppola). And Eric plans to leave his wife, Alice (Darby Stanchfield) for bartender Mary (Clare Carey). But at the heart of Jericho's first season is Jake's hard-earned redemption in his family's (and Emily's) eyes (suddenly, he's a regular MacGyver, able to perform a tracheotomy with a juice box straw!). Star Trek has its Trekkies/-ers and Laurel and Hardy its fraternal organization, the Sons of the Desert. Jericho has its "Nuts," who, in heroic It Takes a Village spirit, mounted a monumental campaign to rescue the series after it had been cancelled. Fans posted a barrage of videos on You Tube and deluged the studio with peanuts (the significance is explained in the season finale). "What is it about this town that has you so addicted to it?" someone asks Emily at one point. Just watch a couple of episodes, and you'll also be hooked. This First Season set should rally Jericho's army and inspire new recruits. --Donald Liebenson

Season Two

The second season of the cult favorite Jericho shows in gritty, emotional detail why fans adore this show. It's intelligently written, and manages to make its out-there concept not only believable, but mesmerizing. Part post-apocalyptic sci-fi, part Western, part conspiracy thriller, and part juicy human drama, Jericho in its second season explores how the citizens of wee Jericho, Kansas, are coping six months after a nuclear bomb destroyed most of the town--and the fabric of the country. The layers of character and plot development, rare on network TV, continue to surprise and develop. Our hero, Jake (Skeet Ulrich), is helping put the pieces of his town and life back together, while hostile forces from neighboring towns plan attacks. And the mysterious Robert Hawkins (Lennie James) is hiding in town with a literal smoking gun--a nuclear warhead that may prove the attacks were carried out not by Iran and North Korea, but by internal forces. Hawkins is on the run, and Jake is in on his secret. Amid all this chaos arrives Major Beck (the charismatic Esai Morales), who's been sent by the acting Western government to instill order in Jericho. "The nightmare is over," he intones to the shaken townsfolk. "Order will be restored."

The nightmare is far from over, however, which accounts for Jericho's intense drama and creative storytelling. The viewer is never totally sure whom to believe, keeping the viewer just off kilter just enough to want to watch another episode, and then another. Extras on the boxed set include terrific audio commentaries on virtually every episode, which lend even greater appreciation to the set designers and cinematographers. There's a featurette, "Rebuilding Jericho," giving fans insight to the conception of a post-apocalyptic America, and deleted scenes, and perhaps most interesting to devoted fans, an alternate unaired ending to the season finale--worth watching just to see where the creators imaginations can take them. --A.T. Hurley

Watched all the episodes and still wanted more.
Theresa Mercaldo
Jericho is a very emotional series that deals with right versus wrong, and how one small town tries to maintain their morals.

With season two just being completed and put out for sale this compilation would be the solution if you have yet to purchase season one. Jericho, in my estimation, was one of the best dramas on TV. Nicely, it is a change of pace from the great investigation, police or courtroom dramas that are so very good and popular.

The neat thing about Jericho as a series it is a continuation of a story flow, you get hooked from the moment the bomb goes off. There are scenes in the first episode reminscent of "The Day After" and other nuclear war type movies of the 80s. However, the people seem real and you get into the characters right away.

There are families, three and four generations of hometown Americans. This movie shows values in relationships and core values of a people trying to survive and overcome hardships in a small town. For those not in the know, Jericho was supposed to end with Season One. There was a firestorm after the last episode where a reference to the battle of the buldge is mentioned and the term Nuts is used. Well, the heroes of season two include the thousands of viewers who sent tons and tons of packaged peanuts to CBS demanding that Jericho stay on for one more year. CBS relented and ran seven episodes. That is season two.

However the seven episodes took on a big screen dimension. Interestingly, many of the episodes in Jericho had a big screen feel to it. The last episodes of season one and virtually all of season two gave you the big screen feel. Sadly, with so much more of a focus on getting the meat of the story in season two, you miss many characters and possible themes. You have to watch season one. There is the character who is the town bad boy with a very large group of men as his possee.

Wow. I'd never seen the show and bought the whole series based on positive reviews--so glad I did. Great characters, story lines, action, drama, & very entertaining. To me this show is 'X-Files' without all the Aliens, 'Lost' without all the confusing plot twists, and '24' with more heroes than just Jack--and I like all those shows. The whole series has a ton of extras I enjoyed and at nearly 22 hrs of entertainment this set is a bargain.

If your thinking why buy this series if its so good but ends after 1.5 seasons? Well, lots of great films end with you loving the characters and wanting more. 'Jericho' is a 20 hr 'movie' that is very satisfying and leaves you wanting more--how often can you sayt that about TV?

Extremely addictive and fun to watch, however once again I believe this show was cancelled more because of it's Political ramifications than any fudged ratings that CBS may have used to justify said cancellation. CBS themselves said that they brought back the second season due to the largest fan outcry they had ever witnessed. Well if that was the case, how could the ratings have been so low? hmmmmmmm. perhaps the subject matter was too close to the truth for the "Powers that be" to allow to continue.

I have to preface this review by revealing that I do not watch TV. That's right, America, I actually do not watch TV. Oh, I have a great, big, 42" LCD HDTV, but I choose to only use that for watching DVDs because, quite frankly, commercial TV sucks. Having said that, I do have a membership to NetFlix, so I have previewed a few TV shows there because they are commercial free. My most recent discovery is "Jericho".

I originally played the first episode because I am a fan of Skeet Ulrich (Jake Green). Many have referred to Skeet as a poor man's Johnny Depp, but I think Skeet is just a little more relaxed with his performances since he doesn't have so much pressure to be the big Hollywood star. Add Gerald McRaney as Skeet's father (Johnston Green) and mayor of the town and top it with the tough as nails mom who just can't wait to bake you a homemade pie, Pamela Reed (Gail Green), and you have an instant winner.

I can't say enough about this show. I love the fact that Jericho is a speck of a town in the middle of Kansas that chooses not to fall apart during the worst disaster in the history of the United States. The people of Jericho simply "get it". Towns surrounding them have fallen into anarchy while Jericho celebrates Thanksgiving, manages to keep their grocery store in business, and still feels it is important to go out and vote. This isn't just an apocalyptic tale of death and chaos, it's a family story from the word go. Ulrich's Jake Green has just returned to town from a self-imposed exile when the whole world gets turned upside down. Throughout the first few episodes we see the uncomfortable silences between Jake and his father. We also watch as the friendship between Jake and his brother, Eric (Kenneth Mitchell), slowly rebuilds.

Jericho is certainely a very good show, both seasons are great. But as of this set, it's nothing more than a cartboard cover housing the previously released sets of Seasons 1 & 2 plus a bonus disc in a tiny cardboard case. The new features are not that much interesting. The only valuable reason to buy this set is if it's cheaper to buy this instead of the individual sets. Otherwise, forget the new special features and get Season 1 & 2 separetely.

So does this mean the series is done 100%?
We don't know yet. The producers are still having meetings and trying to find a new home for Jericho. Don't give up yet! If you'd like to see how you can help, or just want to have some fun with fellow fans, check out cbs.com/jericho and/or jerichorallypoint.com. Hope to see you there!
