Jericho - "Federal Response" - 10/18/06

"Federal Response"
Spoiler:
Townspeople hope that life will return to normal when they receive a prerecorded phone call from Homeland Security and utilities come back on line.

Yeah, that's going to be laughable.
When will Skeet get radiation poisoning?
When will all the teenagers in the town die?
When will Sparkle Motion lady reopen her shop for business?
When will the mayor die from whatever congestive heart failure is gripping him at the moment?
When will people start going nuts and trying to kill each other?
When will zombies show up?

All these questions need to be answered.

Really exaggerating.

Having said that, this is the worst of the episodes thus far. That's probably compounded by the fact that my HD audio is jarbled.

I'm pretty sure I didn't tune in to see a fire rescue. Sheesh!

This show could be awesome if they went in the right direction.

I want to know how one bar has an endless supply of booze. I want to see the episode where they run out.

Well, there was that shipment on the train...maybe they got the booze from there.

More importantly...I wonder why Jake's passport was flagged?

This show could be so cool but it was crap until the last few minutes when you were reminded about the nuke situation. The "drama" within the town is a joke. They need to focus more on the outside. The ending was a pretty cool sight though.

I love this show...for about the 5 minutes per episode that the black guy is involved. The rest of it is just so stupid it's crazy. It took me like 10 minutes to watch tonight's show, and I'm pretty sure I didn't miss anything. Thank God for Tivo.

Yeah, this was the first episode I was honestly disappointed in. I just couldn't bring myself to care if their library led down.

Next week's episode looks promising, with the whole 'lawless' aspect FINALLY coming into play - that would've happened within the first 36 hours in reality.

The show is bad, but I'm a sucker and they keep drawing me in, particularly in those last few seconds of the episode.

These folks make nuclear war seem like a piece of cake.

I think you're being generous with 36 hours.

I probably am...though it'd probably take that long in close-knit small communities.

It looked like Russian but it may have been just encoded.

I was thinking it looked like Russian too, but then, I really don't know Russian.

Other then the first minute and last half-minute, this episode blew chunks.

So what happened at the end? My DVR shut off as they were all walking into the bar to watch the new feed on the tv.

The feed went out, the bar shook and rumbled, they went outside, and saw two missiles launched into the air.
