5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise, July 8, 2007

This review is from: Jericho: Season 1 (DVD)
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 :)

Message from CBS...see below.

Thanks to you, Jericho is back! What an amazing job you have done so far. Now it's time to take it to the next level and CBS wants to arm you for the battle. Each week, we will send the Rangers (and only the Rangers) a link to an exclusive clip to the upcoming episode. Only Rangers and their friends and families will be able to watch it. Feel free to send this link to everyone on your e-mail list. You are their key to seeing an exclusive clip of the show long before it airs. Let's make this thing grow! Now here's the capper... if we get 1,000,000 hits to this website, CBS will send you a link to get the secret, alternate ending to the series! No matter what ending airs, you will be able to see the other ending. So go nuts, again. Support Jericho and get a part of the show no one will ever see. Here is a link to an exclusive clip from next Tuesday's episode. This link is a password protected link just for you. Below is the link with logline and password info:

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.

Guys, are you naive? There'll be no third season. Not because of low ratings or any of the excuses CBS has given but because Jericho is happening. And it has been going on for a number of years. We're not run by politicians anymore, we've been run by a couple of dozen (not one like in the series) multi-global companies for years and we are being stripped of our civil and rights more and more every day. What do you think the Patriot's Act was? Legislation to protect the US citizens? In your dreams. And it's not just happening in the USA. Multi-global means multi-global. The EU is supposed to bring Europe together and bring lasting peace. It's enslaving it's citizens in the same way it is happening in the USA. The corporations? Think! A few Jewish banks which are keeping their name out of the press, military contractors, the largest oil companies.
Jericho got too close to the truth. I'm surprised they even allowed Season 2 although it was cleverly tweaked to put the blame on one non-existent company - J & R.
