In my current TV-less world, I just started watching Jericho in streaming episodes on the internet. I haven’t watched a prime time tv show regularly in 4-5 years, and probably have only seen a handful of shows during that time as well. I am much more interested in cable shows or movies. I was looking for an option other than a 2 hour movie on DVD, and streaming tv sounded good.
I recently heard an interview with one of the producers of Jericho and thought it sounded like an interesting show. It is about a small town in Kansas coping with surviving what might be a post-apocalyptic world. The show was canceled after its first season, but due to the response of its rabid fanbase it will be coming back as a mid-season replacement.
Anyway, since I don’t normally watch network tv, I also don’t keep up with their websites and how they offer full episodes. Beyond buying episodes of shows on itunes, I really didn’t know what was available. I was pleased to find all episodes of Jericho available for free. I watched the first episode and thought it was pretty good. It has an engaging story, good characters and enough mystery and uncertainty to keep you hooked from episode to episode.
I checked online to see if it was available on DVD, since the internet stream is not of full screen quality (even on a laptop). It is not coming out until October. I am sure I will watch the rest of the episodes before then. I have already watched 3 of the 23.
