Like most of you all, I watched the first episode of Jericho the other night on CBS. I was impressed - the characters seemed well formed, and I think they made it clear without beating you over the head with it who the main players would be. Yes, we have the sexy IRS woman from out of town. Yes, we have the prodigal son. Yes, we have the busload of pathos - I mean, children - to worry about, but still, I feel it was all done in an original way.
Now that I think about it, Jericho reminds me of Twin Peaks a little bit.
Anyway, I'm excited to see how it pans out. I moved to the US a year ago and have yet to 'adopt' a TV show, mainly because I have little time to watch TV. But I'll keep track of Jericho for a while.
