aneyone watching Jericho :?:

Postby warmonger180 » Thu Nov 16, 2006 3:36 am

it's rather good. first thought it was a massive test to see just how a small population would react to the US being attacked like that. then it turns out to be terrorists, but i still wonder, tho. how does a terrorist set off an air burst over the midwest, tho it could have been in a largish plane.

My wife (heh... "wife") and I have been watching Jericho. We are still undecided about it -- it is a great concept for television which has not seen the light of day for a while, but the writing and acting are so melodramatic.

I'm enjoying it, but it has to pick up the pace soon.

Yeah, that too. I am beginning to get the impression that the writers don't really know where they are going, and they are drawing out the story as much as possible to hide that fact :\

I've been watching for a while, but it's just too darn positive, and there aren't enough plots that arch over several episodes. That, and the dialogue and acting are damn painful.

Yeah I like the concept & some episodes have been good. But terrorists? Come on. Washington is gone? Not by terrorists it's not. I do have a problem with everyone being so clean shaven & nice. The old lady with the store would have been done in long ago. No one in town seems the least bit concerned with organizing to defend the town.

so, the chinese are our friends and air drop supplies. can someone tell me why there was an RFID in a parachute if this was a real terrorist attack? i'm startin to go back to thinkin this is one very elaborate scocio-economic physiological test to see how a small town environment will handle the "real" thing.

That's the funny thing...

The supplies were dropped with Vietnam-era Russian aircraft. The supplies were Chinese. And the Parachutes and RFID tags were U.S.


Next weeks Fall Finale should be real interesting...

The way TV shows are working these days, there really isn't "seasons" per se...

The process these days appears to be where they will have a show on for 30 months or so, then have a "finale"... Then new episodes will aire 3-5 months down the road..

The Stargate shows and BSG also follow this format..

I am still not sure whether I like it or not...

But I am eagerly awaiting Season 6 of '24'!! :D

Something tells me that primetime TV isn't the right place to expect a TV series to show society absolutely crumble post-apocalypse. I keep rooting for the show to get darker, but it never seems to quite make it. The studio execs probably keep telling the producers to keep putting in "feel good" moments to keep the Bible-belt moms happy.

Me, I just want to see them *really* struggle as everything falls apart with no help coming from anywhere. Plus more nukes. :twisted:

This show looks sweet from what i can glean from CBS and Wikipedia websites. Hope i haven't missed the start of it in the UK...

According to Wikipedia, Jehrico is on ITV1. Any clue on when its on etc, as id really like to catch the show. Hopefully it turns out better than crappy 'Invasion' on e4 grr
