Jericho

Anyone else watching this show?? Last Week was intense and this week will even be more intense with New Bern attacking Jericho.

You know I started watching this show at the beginning but just lost interest in it. There are so many other great shows on now that I just wasn't hooked.. I do like the concept of the show tho.

However, I doubt that this show will make it back for another season..

I confess to having watched every episode. I know it's not very good television compared with some of the really great shows out there, but it sucked me in when I was bedridden last fall. I really got into the apocalyptic survivalist stuff, I guess because I don't see it as being all that far-fetched.

I watch it. I watched every episode last season (hey I was confined to an apartment with no car, still job searching at the time). This season I've been a little lax, but I catch up On Demand every few weeks. I'm not really into it like I am Law & Order or CSI, but I like it b/c I've seen it from the beginning so I know what's happening (I've never seen Lost or 24 so I'm afraid to start watching).

OK

I'll admit to watching

also because I have seen most of the episodes, so I guess i feel some kind of commitment

often I watch on TIVO and zip through

I think it is like finishing a book I am not crazy about.

I totally agree. I really liked this show in the beginning and then it went on that ten week or so hiatis (how do you spell that word?) and I just lsoe interest. I usually On Demand it but find myself fast forwarding it through a lot of it.

I do still watch it though.

We're all compelled to watch a show we don't care much about but because we've seen every episode we can't stop. Clearly we need a 12-step program.

It was actually already picked up for a second season early in the year, before Heroes even...

I like this show and I don't think it's something to get embarassed about per se...

I will say the heart-warming family moments are pretty lame and the sub plots involving the kids (Hawkin's kids and the guy and girl running the store) are boring...

My favourite character is either Hawkins cus he kicks ass and Major Dad ( ) he totaly runs that town...

The season finale was lame. I doubt I'll watch it next season.

I watch, it's a nice warmup for Criminal Minds.

I will have to watch next year only to see how the battle turned out...that was a soap opera-style Friday rip off of a cliffhanger, I was pissed.

I think it's a cool show, but I agree some of the subplots are lame, mainly Dale & Skylar or whatever her name is, and Eric & the homewrecker. I don't mind Hawkins' kids though, his duaghter is gonna be hardcore. I'm still not 100% sure Hawkins is a good guy though...something there just doesn't pass the smell test.

Oh and the mayor needs to go, that dude is suspect.

too bad Hawkins (aka Major Dad) died...

I'm little surprised that the show got picked up for another season. Is CBS hurting that much in ratings?

and that's how you'll get sucked in again for another whole season, lol

The series just never seemed to live up to the first episode which totally got me hooked, always wanting it to be that good again. They need some better writers. I was surprised the Dad died (I never remember anyone's names) but the writing was so bad I didn't feel a thing. That's the problem with this show. Major characters died and I didn't care. I basically only like Hawkins and the cute brother (again, writing so lame the names don't even stick with me), and honestly Hawkins is the only decent actor. Everyone else acts like soap opera actors.
