    The action is fast-paced, the plotting dense, if often simplistic, and the tension generally sustained, as long as you don't overthink the improbabilities of the cover-up over who's responsible for the bomb attacks.
  2. On paper, the idea of building a new democracy from the ruins of war while government contractors run amok--in other words, showing what would happen if the reconstruction of Iraq took place in our heartland--is just as strong as the original premise of Jericho. But the execution remains mediocre.

I love how the show wrapped up, ending the town of Jericho's story line but leaving the rest of the world full of possibilities. Hopefully someday, someone picks up this show. Full Review »

    The depressingly short season that deserved a full season pickup. The fact that people would rather watch terrible programs like NCIS orThe depressingly short season that deserved a full season pickup. The fact that people would rather watch terrible programs like NCIS or Gossip Girl where nothing happens, except for a small cliff hanger here and there. Jericho has the audience hocked but people just seem to get busy with their daily lives. The first season managed over 10 million viewers per episode while this one barely managed 6 or 7 million make me deeply saddened. I hope to see a third season one day. It was a short season but it was terrific. We miss you Jericho. Full Review »
