After a long 10-week break, CBS’s hit drama Jericho is set to return on Feburary 21 at 8pm eastern. If your unfamiliar with Jericho, the show is set in Jericho, Kansas during a time when some sort of nuclear attack as been unleased across the United States. The town has survived and has absolutlely no contact with anyone outside of their small Mayberry like town. The show is alot like lost in that it has many plot turns, but this show actually answers the questions it presents rather than leaving you hanging for months and months with nothing but more questions to try and remember.
If your interested in getting up to speed on the show, CBS will air a special recap episode on Feburary 14th which will be a quick summary of all of the events thus far in Jerhico. Following this special episode, Jericho will run for 11 straight episodes with no repeats. According to excutive producer Carol Barbee:
“By the end of the season, you will know where Jake’s been for the last five years, you will know what Hawkins’ involvement is with the bombings and who is behind the bombings,” executive producer Carol Barbee promised critics here Thursday.”
If your like me, by the time Feburary rolls around you will be tired of watching the American Idol rejects and looking for something new to watch, Jericho is a great one to get sucked into.
Having never seen an episode of 24, I consider myself quite an afficionado on the show. I’ve been hearing many great things about the show and how good (and violent) it is, so I am somewhat looking forward to the season 6 premier on Sunday January 14th at 8/7 central.
I plan on watching the 2 hour premier on Sunday and am expecting to have no idea of whats really going on, but since Lost, Heroes, and Jericho are all on a break untill Feburary, I need to find something new to watch.
For those of you that are up to speed on the show, and are quivering with excitement waiting for 24 season 6 to begin, here is a quick recap of the happenings in season 5, and whats to come in season 6 from tv.com.
“24’s pulsating season five opened with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) forced out of hiding after the shocking assassination of President Palmer (Dennis Haybert), the murder of Michelle Dessler (Reiko Aylesworth) and an attack on Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard). With fabricated evidence pinning him to Palmer’s assassination, Bauer became the most wanted man in America. Meanwhile, Russian separatists led by Vladimir Bierko (Julian Sands) took an airport hostage and launched missiles at the Russian presidential motorcade, and when their master plan was quelled, America was threatened with deadly canisters of military-grade nerve gas. In one of the series’ sharpest turns, it was revealed that ineffectual President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin), along with Christopher Henderson (Peter Weller), were responsible for the terrorism and murders of the previous hours. As the clock ticked on, unstable First Lady Martha Logan (Jean Smart) witnessed the unthinkable while Jack, teaming with feisty computer wiz Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), pursued justice for the day’s terrifying events.”
“Season Six picks up 20 months after last season’s shocking season finale, when Jack Bauer was captured by Chinese government agents battered, bloodied and headed for points unknown. As a series of horrific terrorist attacks rocks the nation, President Wayne Palmer, the strong-minded brother of the late President David Palmer, and his team of advisors, Karen Hayes and Thomas Lennox as well as CTU colleagues Chloe O’Brian, Curtis Manning and Bill Buchanan begin an unthinkable, nail-biting day.”
