Overview

One of the many 24-style series of the 2006-2007 season, wherein crucial plot points were revealed with exasperating coyness on a weekly serialized basis, and in which every single solitary character seemed to have something to hide, Jericho made its CBS debut with one of the most startling openers in TV history. As prodigal son Jake Green (Skeet Ulrich) returned to his hometown of Jericho, KS, after an unexplained five-year absence, he spotted what seemed to be a nuclear mushroom cloud blooming on the horizon, hundreds of miles away. At first glance, it looked as though the super-powers were at war, but it would later be revealed that the attack was the work of terrorists -- though how many terrorists, no one knew. Whatever the case, Jericho was completely cut off from the rest of the world, and no one had any idea what fate held in store for them: another bomb, perhaps; or starvation; or slow death from radiation? Jake's father Johnston Green (Gerald McRaney), the mayor of Jericho, valiantly tried to keep the community together and to avert wholesale panic, endeavoring to maintain radio contact with the rest of the country and the world, and organizing searching parties to glean new information about the apparent nuclear holocaust. Meanwhile, Jake was uncomfortably reunited with two former lovers: Emily Sullivan (Ashley Scott), now engaged to another man, and local schoolteacher Heather Lisinski (Sprague Grayden). Weaving in and out of the story was a newcomer to Jericho, the enigmatic Mr. Hawkins (Lennie James), who claimed to be a cop from St. Louis, and who somewhat suspiciously was a veritable fountain of information about nuclear fallout and post-apocalyptic survival techniques. Jericho began weaving its multitude of tangled plot webs on September 20, 2006.

    The Walls Of Jericho

    NUTS!!!! I don't understand how a major TV company can discontinue a great show. It's very engaging and stylish and nicely shot with cool actors and it's well acted. It's not fair that a show like this almost always gets canned before it has a chance to really flourish, which is the same thing that happened to Firefly. Really cool series. Fans are starting a campaign to see that the movie version gets made. Join the fight to keep Jericho alive.

    The End is Here

    One of the best shows to have been on T.V. Great acting, story and SPFX. Don't miss this or season 2 which thankfully concludes the series. Nice that CBS was kind enough to add a second season due to fan requests to put an ending to the show. So many great shows have been cancelled without an ending (EX: Tru Calling, Odyssey 5). The special features are nice and includes commentary on select episodes.

    Jericho...Reality at its best!

    With the number of REALITY shows on TV nowadays, it is refreshing, and also quite frightening to actually have one that gives you a glimpse into where the world could be heading if we don't... This show has real characters that you identify with - those you love, and care about, and those that you deem as villains and actually cheer when they are thwarted or gnash your teeth when they accomplish a mission. Better than "24" and that's saying a LOT! It was the Network's greatest decision in bringing this show back!!!
