Cliche alert! I really hate it when the writers make a character all dazed and unable to move until just before the last second. It takes really good acting and writing to pull it off and most of the time, it fails. Just like it did on Jericho. Skeet Ulrich should have grabbed that ditzy blonde and dragged her into the safety of the cellar, not reason with her like an idiot. Be the alpha male!

The former St. Louis cop guy knows how many places were hit and won’t tell anyone for some reason. His character is reminiscent of Locke on Lost. Is he being set up as the antagonist to Skeet Ulrich’s protagonist? Also, who knocked out Major Dad?

I’m still on the fence about this show. I’ll watch it mostly because I want to see where the story goes and how well the post-apocalyptic wasteland is portrayed.

    >The former cop definitely knows more than he’s letting on. I mean, its very handy that he knows everything about radiation, morse code and how to fix old busted radios.

    Overall, Jericho has basically been one cliche after another and its getting kind of annoying. I really hope they hurry up and start venturing outside their town, or blast survivors start rolling into Jericho soon otherwise I’ll have to bail on this show.

    >Yeah, there needs to be something unexpected. So far, it’s all following the outline of other nuclear disaster stories.
