Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise July 8, 2007
By Rose
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I first saw the previews for Jericho, I thought "Another show trying to capitalize on Lost." Granted, I enjoy watching Lost and other serial dramas, but I wasn't sure if I would enjoy a post-nuclear drama. But I recorded it, and decided to give the show a try.

After watching the pilot, I wouldn't say I was hooked, but I was definitely engaged and was willing to see where the show went. It didn't take much longer before I was looking forward to watching Jericho each week. I became hooked on the characters, learning more about their backstories, and their present motivations. Who was Robert Hawkins, and how was he involved in the attacks? Why did Jake leave Jericho and where has he been all these years? Not to mention, who dropped the bomb and what was left of the nation?

Unfortunately, the Nielson ratings went their to support the show. And so CBS canceled the show. And then CBS was shocked to discover the massive protest that erupted. Fans sent over 20 tons of nuts to CBS in protest. Fans had also raised over $20,000 in charity to be sent to Greensburg, KS, a town wiped out by tornadoes.

Many viewers, like myself, watched through alternative means. We watched it later on our DVRs or online. And we weren't counted. When CBS actually looked that those numbers, CBS discovered that they had a solid show and renewed it. So, during the next season, CBS will air 7 new episodes to wrap up the show and if it does well, then more episodes will come.

For new viewers, I highly recommend this show. Watch it, see why so many fans fought so hard to bring it back. Don't be afraid to get hooked. Answers are given :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Though provoking and Meaningful July 10, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the few shows in many years that I have actually raced home each and every week to make sure I never missed a single episode!!

The acting abilities of the entire cast is amazing and will draw you in! Not to mention the plot (there actually is one!) and the storyline that will hold you enthralled once you do watch. Start from the beginning and fall in love with Jericho!

In a very subtle way it can also teach us all a thing or two about our friends, neighbors and how to work and live together as actual communities now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chocolate in TV form August 2, 2007
Format:DVD
I simply love this show and was heartbroken when it was canceled. Imagine my delight, then, when I read about all the fans sending nuts and e-mails to CBS in such volume that the show was revived. Thank goodness there are motivated people out there who work to save us all from mindless and mind-numbing reality shows.

Jericho's strength, to me, is in the idea that what it depicts is entirely possible. I've heard people say it's too depressing a concept for them to want to watch to show but I find it a really fascinating look at the human psyche. What would happen to society as we know it if the bombs were dropped? What would happen to our leaders? How would we fare if isolated from the rest of the world, suffering from a shortage of food and a lack of electricity? Watching the show's characters struggle with these and similar problems never failed to suck me right into the story. Every time I watch it, I find myself wondering what I would do in their shoes.

And yet the show isn't entirely flawless. The subplot with Eric and April was written off in a fashion that suggests the writers had no idea what to do with that particular plot twist. Skylar and Dale need a good slapping--which is disappointing as their storyline initially appeared to be promising.

But what the show does right, it does right. Hawkins is an absolutely fascinating character and I was on the edge of my seat watching as his story played out over the course of the season. The writers did a fantastic job of keeping the viewer guessing about him, of making him both sinister and yet sympathetic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Show You're Not Watching August 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me preface this review by saying that I watch little to no network T.V. There's just nothing on these days that I think is worth spending my time on ... except for Jericho!

My wife and I were HUGE fans from day one, mostly due to the amazing writing, outstanding acting, and the fabulous ensemble cast the producers assembled. Everyone seemed the perfect fit for their character and the storylines are compelling, engaging, and (be forwarned!) highly addictive!

I watched all of the season one episodes the night they aired (unheard of for me) and I've watched them all again in re-runs. The Season One DVD is already pre-ordered and I'm ready and rarin' for Season Two to begin.

I'm telling you ... the ratings proved that a good portion of America was missing out on this fantastic show, but trust me ... WATCH IT! You won't be sorry.

Besides, what the heck else are you going to watch now that The Sopranos has ended??

5.0 out of 5 stars Jericho: What a great series! September 15, 2007
Format:DVD
I did not start watching Jericho originally but found it via XBOX Live, after the first episode I was hooked. A great story about survival, conspiracy and the challenges of people forced to work together. This is a must see series and I can't wait for seasons 2 and seasons 3 to be on the air!

Can't wait!
I am happy you think Jericho is great. Please help get Jericho renewed again. You can do that by emailing CBS at audsvcs@cbs.com after every episode and tell them you watched. This is the only way CBS can count the viewers who are not Nielsen Ratings households.

Message from CBS...see below.

Music Alterations
It could very well be a rights issue. Although it would be pretty short-sighted of CBS, they may have only negotiated TV broadcast rights for the music, not DVD distribution rights. Or those rights may have just been too expensive to be worth it :).
