This is a conspiracy thriller along the lines of Lost and 24. With one very unique factor. The main character is a Mormon. Freshman college student Jeremiah Whitney has a gift. And a box. He finds himself caught in a global conspiracy as evil forces try to recapture the box and kill the people connected to it. Each episode is 8-10 minutes long. There are a total of 20 episodes which you can watch one at a time. But you won't want to stop. You can watch the whole thing all at once like a movie in about two hours. There's an awesome twist at the end. It has strong appeal for teens and young adults, and includes an online ARG (alternate reality game), for those interested in helping solve the mystery. This would be a great way for your kids to spend their down-time this summer. It's thematically rich, yet none of it feels preachy or heavy-handed. Just good, solid suspense in a gripping story where spiritual factors make the risks and the conflicts all the more exciting.

This series has rave reviews from the New York Times and won a prestigious Webby award. I'm so excited it's finally available on DVD. The bonus features are outstanding. Well worth the investment.

I'm a fan of the webseries and when I heard it was coming to DVD I was way excited. And I wasn't disappointed.

The encoding quality is great and the picture looks about as clear as a DVD can look. The sound is clean too. The DVD is loaded with bonus features, including behind the scenes interviews, making of, a look at the trans-media storyline, and a few other things. Everything a fan could hope for.

Highly recommend if you're a fan of the show.

"The Book of Jer3miah" is nothing if not unique. It's a web series made by a group of college students with a very successful transmedia component. It's a conspiracy thriller where advanced technology and promptings from the Holy Spirit both work to advance the story. The show is not without comic relief, but it takes some of the strange aspects of Mormon doctrine, history, and folklore that ground the story refreshingly, sincerely seriously--it's a rare thing in Mormon fiction, a story that would lose all of its power if transposed into any other religious tradition. It goes to scary, troubling places, asking hard questions about religion and morality, and it tells a fast-paced, twisty story.

The show isn't perfect--it takes a couple episodes to get going and there are certainly many traces of the unbelievably low budget. But, in many ways, these aspects don't really feel like drawbacks--there is a handmade quality to the series that is not only charming, it's inspiring. There's something invigorating about seeing such an ambitious project tackled with such limited resources--there's an energy that runs through "The Book of Jer3miah" that elevates it above
most of its bigger-budgeted competition both in the web series world and the world of Mormon film. It's an excellent, exciting, occasionally unsettling and frequently unusual piece of work. I just hope there's a second season on the way.

Finally! A series that is engaging, interesting, and suspenseful that I can watch with my kids! My 14, 12. , and 7 year old boys loved it. Not only did it keep their attention, but they act it out like Indiana Jones or star wars. It's so hard to find something that all my boys at different ages can watch and enjoy. I really hope they make another season!!!
