Tune in tonight to JERICHO’s second season premiere on CBS. It’s easy to understand, it’s a fun watch, and even if you’ve never seen the show, there’s plenty of exposition that will get you caught up in no time.
I will be the first person to admit (and I’ve done this on many occasions) that I didn’t watch JERICHO when it premiered last year. In fact, I only really started watching it as a New Year’s Resolution for the theTVaddict.com. But something happened in my marathon viewing of the show – I got hooked on these people and their town. It went from being a show about what happens when a bomb lands right near our town and Jake is our hero and golden boy, to being a show about how can Jericho survive, how can the people in the town make a better life, a new life, a different life for themselves?
I love the relationship between Stanley and Mimi. I love the ill-advised relationship that Bonnie has started with Sean. I don’t love the relationship between Jake and Emily because I don’t love Emily, but that’s just nit-picky on my part. I love the fact that Heather is still alive and kicking, and that Robert Hawkins is still possibly the coolest guy in the world. Also, Esai Morales is on the job now, and I just love him! Yes, I’ll miss Gerald McRaney, but the show will go on, and for that I’m super pumped.
Now is the time for all of us JERICHO fans to band together and make sure this show stays on the air. CBS was kind enough to give us a shortened seven episode season. So let’s make the most of it.
Don’t forget to tune in, have friends tune in, catch it on CBS Innertube, etc. It’s our chance to show CBS that it wasn’t a fluke and that the ridiculous amount of nuts sent to them wasn’t a sign of the end of JERICHO, rather the beginning.
