A must for Jericho fans
Verified purchase
Video playback quality is really good.And finally a good show (In my Opinion) affordably priced.I wish Amazon would add an option to buy all seasons.You can buy or rent individual episodes or each season.It makes it near impossible to buy a show if it had more than 2 seasons.But Jericho is good affordable TV .I buy shows i like for our Road trips.They can be downloaded to a tablet and keeps the passengers occupied.No more "Are we there yet" every 10 minutes.

Such a great show!
Verified purchase
This was such a great show. In the first episode, when the bombs are going off, it gave me chills.
I love Gerald McRaney as the mayor/Dad (henceforth called "Mayor Dad") and Skeet Ulrich was an awesome lead. My favorite character was Hawkins. He was awesome! So capable, and mysterious. The actor who portrayed him did a brilliant job. It was a great cast, all around.
When I start wondering why they canceled this show, my paranoia kicks in, then I remember "Firefly" and I realize that network execs just hate good shows, no paranoia necessary.

First of all, I need to make it clear that I can't download the HD of any video. I don't have the download speed to do that. So I won't be talking about the technical aspects of the Amazon video experience. I'm nof sure why Amazon asked me to review "Jericho HD".

I really do love "Jericho". There are parts of it that are too "cheesy" to believe and others parts that really make you think. First things first, I know that Skeet Ulrich was the star of "Jericho", but they used him too much for the story line. That is really my only problem with the series.

If you like this type of story, "end of the world stuff", then you should like this story line. I was actually surprised at the complexity of the overall evil plot. I wonder if there is really a Jennings Rall out there? Oops, is that SPOILER?

The characters are likeable, the story lines are believable, and the action is well paced and exciting. What else can I say? I tend t get really involved with a story like Jericho and these people are real to me.

Jericho also has one of those perfect television moments. Alicia Coppola's dialog with the chicken in one of the later episodes of season 1 is truly one of the funniest things I have EVER seen on TV. Maybe it's because I have chickens and I get it, but it was perfectly done. Google it. If you don't laugh, then Jericho isn't for you. If you see the brilliance, then rent or buy the series. I have this series on Amazon Instant and on disc. I like it that much.

Even though this is a review of Season 1, I will say that it is one of those really bad TV moments when the powers that be canceled season 2 after 7 episodes.

I don't know what else to say except that if you normally like this type of story, then you will like "Jericho". If you don't normally find these shows amusing, then rent an episode or two. This is also a character driven story, and I think you'll find it interesting and entertaining.

Too bad the show was canceled
Verified purchase
This show projects a possible "false flag" operation by the US Government. Maybe that is why it was cancelled, it might have hit too close to home (Okla bombing, WTC bombing, etc.) This show screamed, "I LOVE MY COUNTRY BUT DON'T TRUST IT'S GOVERNMENT!

This program showed human nature at it's best and worst when a crisis occurs. It also graphically demonstrated that we are woefully unprepared for any disaster which would interfere with the flow of food, gas and other essentials. Kinda makes you wonder if all of those crazy preppers are really all that crazy.

This show is not only entertaining it's also very thought provoking. How prepared are any of us to withstand a disaster, whether man-made or by nature? If you are prepared for floods, tornados, hurricanes, wild fires and earthquakes then you are genreally prepared for almost anything short of an invasion of foreign troops.

Great show. I recommend it for all ages.

DONT MISS THIS PROGRAM!
Verified purchase
AWESOME! Season 2 was even better than season 1! Great story line-enough reality to counter the "Hollywood"! I'm always sensitive to political or idealogical leanings in TV, and it was very difficult to find a clear or consistent bias …WELL DONE. It was remarkable how little God or faith was mentioned or even alluded to throughout the series…how did the people of Jericho maintain any real HOPE?!
Actors were all unknowns (a few exceptions) in the beginning-which keeps you interested in learning more about them throughout the series. Hawkins' character really added some gravity to the cast…and the Green family/brother dynamic was very engaging also. Everyone knows a 'black sheep' of the family somewhere…what if he really learned this great wealth of 'street/world wisdom' during his 'black sheep' days? thanks for entertaining us with Jericho!

Some of the post apocalypse setting, EMP does not work
Verified purchase
This series died to young and was rushed at the end. But it was good in some ways. What would we do after a bomb. I started watching after the fifth or sixth episode when it was on television and it is good to see it again.

Something that you would find fault with is that the people in charge are slow to realize that they need to nationalize everything. That the only way to survive will be to get in touch with, Canada perhaps so that supplies can get to them. That they need to make plans for cooking. Everyone will be barbecuing everything because those ovens and microwaves no longer work, and then where do we get charcoal to grill from...

Those questions should have been answered with a few small side scenes, but then the conspiracy drama overtook the show. That is why it doesn't have five stars. If the writers had thought about it more deeply, I would have given this more.

Wish this series did much better.
Verified purchase
The first season, once you got into it, kept you riveted. You weren't exactly sure where it was going to go, nor if all the characters would survive to the next episode.

Season 2, from what I've read, almost didn't happen. The series was cancelled after Season 1 due to low ratings, but were deluged with hate messages for cancelling it. Turns out they didn't include those people who recorded it for later viewing, amongst a few other reasons.

So, here comes Season 2 in only 7 episodes. The viewer can see where it appears that almost an entire season has been condensed into 7 episodes and I don't agree with that. The story is much faster paced and lacks a little of the suspense from Season 1. Don't get me wrong, there is quite a bit of suspense, but it almost seems forced or expected.

That said, I still love the series and wish it would have continued.

So real it's scary.
Verified purchase
This series is not only a heart pumping action series. It also depicts (in my opinion) life after a catastrophic event such as this. It should inspire leaders and people of cities big and small to never underestimate the impossible. It should show people what to do and what not to do in an emergency. Jericho pulls together and survives the best they can. New Bern survives (barely) and lets their fear and anger get the best of them. So, they plunge into chaos and darkness. This series does not give ANY lucky breaks (except for Hawkins and Johnston)and seems very real. Iam sad to see that the series barely made 2 seasons. I will say it is THE only show that kept me glued to my couch and wanting to know what happens next.
