    Jericho season 1 released on DVD

    I was perfectly fine not knowing anything about this damn tv show until I started listening to everyone on this board talking about it. Now I can't get enough.

    Blockbuster Online has it btw.

    I just finished watching the entire first season on DVD. Wow! How did something like that get on network T.V.? I had never seen it. I don't watch much television at all and seldom ever anything on network tv. I saw it talked about on here and decided to see what it was all about.
    Pretty good show. I saw some things that were not plausible. Typical tv land stuff. Taking cover and or shooting from beside a car for instance. And a few times the reactions of the characters were a little too PC to be believed, but all in all a really enjoyable show. I will be watching for season two.

    I bought it at FYE for a Christmas present to me. We had a pretty good ice storm in Tulsa a couple of weeks ago, and my family got to see firsthand how sheeple act in a time of semi-emergency.

    Now they are looking at this series and Mom and Dad in a completely different way. My son came over and borrowed my extra kerosene heater, generator and a couple of propane lanterns. He is now setting aside some money each week, and asking me to help him prepare.

    It kind of seems ironic that the medium of television is what the populace seems to respond to. Just goes to show that people are still not thinking the course of current events to their logical ends. They still wait for someone to entertain them with the possibilities or a catastrophe.

    Thank you, I have it now. I saw the first five episodes before I left for Iraq, but when I got back I couldn't find the rest of the season on reruns. I was worried that it had been canceled and I would never see it! Thank you for the notice, I'm catching up where I left off now. I love it!

    Re-runs should be on the comedy channel, there is that much to laugh about in it. I loved it when the Chinks dropped that generator the size of a house on them, and they use it to power lights in the street....never did figure out HOW they dragged it back to town.

    Yeah it does stretch credibility in a lot of places. But for mainstream television it's not bad. The scenery gets me. I have traveled through Western Kansas many times and have never seen so many hills!! I am watching the DVD with the producer and directors comments. It is filmed in Calgary, Canada and Southern California.

    A bit off topic, an oldie but goodie if you can find it is a mini-series that was aired in the 80's, "Amerika". It is a survival type show where the UN with Russia at it's head has come in as "peacekeepers" after TSHTF. It stars Kris Kristofferson, Robert Ulrich, Mariel Hemmingway, and a lot of others that I don't remember their names. All in all a pretty good show. The plot revolves around who supports the new "Heartland", overseen by the UN, and who resists it.

    Wife was on a New Year's cleaning kick, and turned up my copy of "Patriots" by JW Rawles......I've been re-reading it again after many years from the first time. Lot of good stuff in there, relevant to today's economic storm clouds.


    The best thing I can say about Jericho is it 'might' have made some impression on the mainstream sheep.....last year, we had Christmas at one of the in-laws house ( who are almost total sheeple and think we are nuts ) when the discussion turned to Jericho....my young niece ( 16 then ) was the most vocal about it and the need to think about such things ( she MUST be adopted....ahahaha ).....so this year, our gift to the family was a Coleman propane lantern.....they 'might' have a one flashlite in the house......with the suggestion they might want to pick up a Coleman propane camp stove as well.....and a WHOLE bunch of those 1lb bottles.

    I have trouble with some of the less believable elements of the show too, but if you can suspend that judgement (like watching a spiderman movie), it's pretty darn good.

    It was cancelled, after fans of the show bought and paid for 50,000 lbs. of nut to be shipped to CBS, they surrendered and ordered more episodes as a mid-season replacement. That was only the 2nd time in the history of TV that a network responded to viewer demand to bring back a cancelled series. Season 2 starts in Feb. I bought the Season 1 DVD for a friend as a present, and I plan on buying one for myself.

    I agree, but.....seeing a show like this on network television is something I never thought I would see. So far I see the show promoting preparedness and firearms ownership. Who'd of thunk it on CBS? I am all for it, and plan on supporting it as much as I can.

    I think it has. When you have that many people that are willing to write, call, e-mail and (gasp) actually spend enough money to convince a major network to bring a series back, that shows me that a lot of dedicated people are watching this show. Along with the 50,000 lbs. of nuts delivered to CBS offices, money was raised for full page ads in Vanity Fair and other publications. That is huge. Hell, the general populace doesn't get that fired up over who they are electing.

    Agree with EL..... any mainstream show that gets people in that mindset is a good thing, I believe.
