That’s SOS, folks. That’s right, it’s time for a Jericho update. For the last month, they’ve been saying, the last 3 episodes of the season, the last 2 episodes of the season. And last night? They say, the SERIES finale! Ahck! What the heck. Haven’t we been here before? CBS, what is wrong with you? All the sudden you ditch this highly popular show?
Of course, you leave a cliffhanger, with the military general in charge of the area defecting, his men following suit and preparing to fight the corrupt government that formed in Cheyenne, WY after the wide-scale attack that paralyzed the US. He pardons the good citizens of Jericho who had been telling him all along that the government was corrupt. And, of course, our sometimes-heroes Jake and Hawkins, shoot their way through the Cheyenne government, plow through the sovereign Texas Embassy’s gates asking for amnesty and rescue the last nuclear bomb, the proof needed to bring the Cheyenne government down and give the old government, based out of Columbus, OH a fighting chance. Texas gives them that, as they get them on a small Cessna, and a few miles outside of Texas, Cheyenne F16s catch up with them and lock missiles on the small plane. Out of nowhere the F16s go up in flames and the Texas Air National Guard guides them in, saying, I dont know what you have on board, but it better be good, I think I just declared war on Cheyenne. Hawkins, severely injured, gasps out to Jake, so how’s it feel? To make history…
And their ending the series NOW?!?
If last night was a series finale…..I am very disappointed. The only thing that had any “closure” (if that is what you want to call it)was when Mimi and Stanley “married” in the cemetary.
I so hope Sci-Fi picks this show up. I have watched both seasons and still have a lot of unanswered questions.
Not reading this post on purpose because I have tivoed the entire season and am planning on watching it this weekend. I did just hear that they’re cancelling it for good this time around though…oh well, what can we do? Send more nuts? 😉
Apparently CBS is not thinking correctly. They sure did leave a lot of cliff hangers & really didn’t wrap a whole lot up… they defintely need to continue on another channel.
