What post-apocalyptic calamity will the town face this week?

Townsperson: "Somebody's stolen the bake sale money!"
[Zoom in on Skeet]
Skeet: "Now how is the band supposed to buy new uniforms?"

Stop threadcrapping!





I'm sure the stock boy will find a truck on the highway full of uniforms just in time. Or did the horse rustlers find them first?

episode is halfway over and the thread is MUCH more entertaining than the show. I think I'm officially out after tonight.

Those were some serious burritos!

I'm not sure if I'd like warm unpasturized cow milk with my breakfast cereal, either. Yech. At least the IRS lady finally acknowledges the incineration of every one she knew and loved.

Shop lady pushed her stockboy just a little too hard on the musicbox, now who's gonna haul the food from the train to your store? Heh.

Jake's showdown with Jonah was a little cheesy since they continue to talk around in circles on past events. Emily has a choice father, doesn't she?

The Hawkins really need a Dr. Phil intervention...

Sounds like a plan to me.

But the teacher girl kissed Skeet! Wasn't that just the sweetest post-apocalyptic moment ever?

Two tuners with a total of three shows I watch at this hour. One's gotta go and it's not looking too good in the town of Jericho.

Yeah I might be out after this one as well. Why is this show so determined to kill Major Dad?

Is it just me, or does every character mumble their dialogue?
I'm always having to replay scenes on Jericho (which isn't exactly a thrill) just to try and decipher what was said.

Things I Would Like To See On Jericho (If The Writers Are Reading This)
- Have characters speak clearly, and quit fucking mumbling
- I don't care about bearded Eric, his affair, or his wife. Can they die?
- Ditto for radioactive farmboy and bitchy IRS woman
- Ashley Scott needs to wear more revealing clothes
- Bitchy-but-cute high school girl needs to have her busty, bikini-model sister from college (I just invented her) return home
- More death and destruction: this is the end of the world, after all
- Stop with the cheesey shoot-outs and fistfights
- More Mysterious Hawkins/Dawkins/whatever and his backstory
- Can we cutback on the musical montages just a bit? We get it, the characters are tormented and troubled, yet oddly at peace by episode end. We don't need jiveass lyrics reinforcing the point.
- Can we make the storylines a little darker? Missiles have been launched, cities have been destroyed, EMPs are flying around, yet we have to sit through high-school-play-choreographed fistfights at abandoned airports with a Depp-clone vs a Sawyer-wannabe and his ponytailed henchmen.

Actually the whole Jake and the nasty boy remind me of Goofus and Gallant, except I'm not sure which is which at this point. All I can think about when I watch the show is Skeet's tendency to pee on the sides of buildings when he's interviewed.

His bio at IMDB is far more amusing than this show.
