To be fair the episodes where it dips aren't anywhere near as bad as I remembered.
I find this true of most shows, especially if you're watching them in marathon format.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

Well I put I started the rewatch last night at around 8pm - watched the first 6 without interruption. Went to bed, got up, put on the next 7, again no breaks. Absolutely love the show. Certainly has a few weaknesses, but IMO, they're far outweighed by its strengths. If you can forgive a fair degree of shmaltz/cheese every now and then it certainly makes things easier!

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

I've been rewatching it the last few days, too. I don't know that there are whole episodes where it really dips so much as certain storylines that just don't work very well. Honestly I found most of the romantic subplots to be awkward and somewhat annoying, as well as almost anything involving Dale and Skylar.

I think the Dale and Skylar bits were the only bits that really bothered me.

I interpreted that as, Dale was just showing the potential that lay within him all along, and that would go untapped in the normal course of events. I found that whole evolution highly amusing.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

Of course one interesting consideration, should Netflix pick up the show - where do they start?

Given that a number of the writers of the show were actually responsible for the 'Season 3' graphic novel, and will presumably be contributing to the 'Season 4' one as well - how canon are those going to be treated? Would any new televised continuation pick up from where Season 2 left off, or where the 'Season 4' graphic novel finishes? I think common sense is going to demand that they pick up from Season 2, as many people are most likely unaware of the graphic novels anyway.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

I'm sure it would pick up as of the end of S2 with no assumption that anyone has read the comics.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

I think you're right, which then leads into the next question - would season 3 follow the same direction as the 'Season 3' graphic novel, or go its own way.

Ordinarily I'd have said that they'd obviously go their own way, but given that some of the writers were involved with the novel, who knows?!

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

I read something that said the writers were going to draw on the comics and probably that they were involved in writing the comics...

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

Of all the reports carrying the news that Netflix were looking at Jericho, this bit from one of them amused me;

Recently, the producers of Terra Nova, a Fox dinosaur adventure serial, approached Netflix to see if they would be interested in producing their cancelled show, but the cost of production for Terra Nova was simply too high for Netflix to take interest. Jericho, however, can be made rather cheaply. All the producers need is a few partly rundown buildings and some dusty roads.


It's funny because it's nearly true!

Well there's a war on, so they'll need some tanks and planes. But that shouldn't break the budget.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

I've recently started watching this show and it's good. But i had to laugh at the below part of the story. Peanuts. Good lord. Don't these people have a life? As a fan of Star Trek I never understood the passion from the 'Save Enterprise,' folks and do not get t his either.

Like Arrested fans, Jericho's are a passionate bunch: CBS renewed the post-apocalyptic show for a second season in 2007 after viewers bombarded the network with cases of peanuts.

After the season 1 final scene, CBS were lucky we didn't kidnap some people

True. IIRC, a similar tactic was use din the 1980's by the original BSG and the fans got one more season out of the studio.

I guess ST fans have been far less successful in using the same shenanigans.
