Heroes and Jericho

Well I am still watching it, its still not my attention.

I must say that the last ep “Seven Minutes to Midnight” I must admit it turned out to be an interesting ep.

Makes you wonder just how bad a person the cheerleaders father is, or if he really does care about what happens for the good of his daughter. So far I’m still doughting he has her best interests at heart, but like all things time will tell what the truth of the matter is in regards to that.

———-Dr. Who———-

Well the second ep of Doctor Who was alright, but sighs to a degree it was rather disapointing at least to me it was, and bad werewolf deal, not belivable at all, but hay you work with what you have.

———-JEROCHO———-

The fifth ep of Jericho called Federal Response was interesting to watch, though I must admit that I was a little ticked about some of the charature development, just when I though we might learn more about Jake, well they don’t give you much, which seems to be the deal with the show not much info on the various people we are getting to know.

Dr Who – Season 2 Ep 1 – New Earth

Well that did prove to be an interesting ep to watch, though it did take me watching it twice to have much of an opinion of it (got to love time surfing).

Anyhow, New Earth … interesting ep in general for this ep they brought back Cassandra from season 1 ep 2 The End of the World. Not sure if I really liked them brining her back, but hay how they killer her off finally was not that bad (though not sure if I liked it either, on well).

JERICHO on CBS

Well I am not sure about everyone else, but Jericho is one show which I am following to a degree, but am still not 100% sure if I like or not.

For those who are not following it as yet, here’s a synopses of the show … “JERICHO is a drama about what happens when a nuclear mushroom cloud suddenly appears on the horizon, plunging the residents of a small, peaceful Kansas town into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they’re the only Americans left alive. Fear of the unknown propels Jericho into social, psychological and physical mayhem when all communication and power is shut down. The town starts to come apart at the seams as terror, anger and confusion bring out the very worst in some residents. Jake Green (Skeet Ulrich), prodigal son of the town’s mayor, becomes a reluctant hero when a school bus crashes as a result of the explosion. Mayor Johnston Green (Gerald McRaney) is conflicted with the return of his estranged son, but is called to action when the town begins to riot. Johnston’s wife, Gail (Pamela Reed), is the strong, savvy first lady of the town who runs interference between her husband and her favorite son. Attempting to usurp the mayor’s power is Johnston’s political adversary, Gray Anderson (Michael Gaston), who is not above putting his personal agenda before the welfare of the very community he wants to lead.

Though the cloud appears in the distance, it affects all the residents in Jericho, including Dale Turner (Erik Knudsen), the 16-year-old trailer park kid everybody picks on, who finds himself in a position that could change his status; Robert Hawkins (Lennie James), a mysterious stranger who seems to be a jack-of-all-trades as he steps in to help restore order; Heather Lisinski (Sprague Grayden), a pretty young schoolteacher on the bus with her students returning from a class trip when the glare from the explosion causes a terrible accident; Emily Sullivan (Ashley Scott), Jake’s high school sweetheart who lives outside of town and innocently goes about her business unaware of the catastrophe, Bonnie Richmond (Shoshannah Stern), a pretty 17-year-old who is hearing impaired; and Bonnie’s older brother Stanley (Brad Beyer), Jake’s best friend from childhood and an avid car lover who works on the family farm. In this time of crisis, as sensible people become paranoid, personal agendas take over and well-kept secrets threaten to be revealed, some people will find an inner strength they never knew they had, and the most unlikely heroes will emerge.”

Well that synopses really doesn’t say much about the show, but hay its what the site has to offer in regards to the show. I’ve watched all three eps which have been shown so far (even managed to find two of the eps on YouTube as previews they are as follows….

Preview of Season 1 Ep 1 (09:09 min running time)

Preview of Season 1 Ep 2 (06:46 min running time)

Not bad previews as previews go, K they are not official from the site, but hay the site versions I’ve not been able to watch for some reason, they should work but they do not appear to be working for me for some reason that I do not fully understand.

When it comes to each of the eps, the first took me three times to get though and get a good idea about … the Pilot’s synopses is as follows “After mushroom clouds appear on the horizon, fear of the unknown propels Jericho into social, psychological and physical mayhem when all communication and power is shut down. The town starts to come apart at the seams as terror, anger and confusion bring out the very worst in some residents. Jake Green, the prodigal son of the town’s mayor, becomes a reluctant hero when a school bus crashes as a result of the explosion.”

The second ep entitled Fallout I only got to see once, and well I know I missed a world of a lot cause I really didn’t follow the ep very well … the second eps synopses is as follows “With only an hour before the fallout from the nuclear blast in Denver hits Jericho, Jake rushes to get the townspeople inside and away from the rain so that they won’t get radiation poisoning. When Jake and the others find that the official shelter is in disrepair and unusable, they have to come up with other protection fast. Meanwhile, Emily and Bonnie are held hostage by two men posing as police officers.”

The Third Ep entitled Four Horsemen was an interesting show, but again I’m still not getting into the show yet, and its at its their airing .. the synopses of the third ep is as follows “Jake organizes a group to gather more information about the explosions after a satellite television in the local bar broadcasts an Asian news program showing the extent of the nuclear attacks. In addition to the television broadcast, Stanley, who is hospitalized for radiation poisoning, claims to have seen tanks headed toward Denver. With Jericho still cut off from communication and the people craving information, Jake recommends sending out four search parties in different directions to get a sense of what is going on outside of town. Meanwhile, when one of the inhabitants dies unexpectedly, Heather questions the cause of his death.”

Well I’ve come this far watching it so far it likely means that I’ll continue to watch it till the end of the season less something else comes along and catches my attention more then it does, which is possible its happened before.

Well take care everyone

Heroes

I don’t know about anyone else, but from the first EP its got me hooked to watch further .. though I didn’t really like the intro ep, it was a little disjointed to follow and I watched it three times (have to love the ability to time channel surf different time zones … chuckles it does come in handy.

You can apparently watch the first ep on the home page at nbc.com though I wasn’t able to do so, i keep getting “We’re sorry, but the clip you selected isn’t available from your location. Please select another clip.” I think because I’m not in the US and that it only allows US viewers to watch it at the moment (though could be another reason am sure, but from what I read that its not adviable in my region, leads me to think it means not viewable to those outside the US).

I must admit that the show does catch my attention in what it potentially has going for it from what I have seen from the first ep and from the stuff that I can access from the site itself. The idea that many other people are going to wake up to find that they have “special” powers is in and of itself interesting to see and see what new powers will be coming online and what the ultimate deal will be leading to what they will be involved in because there has to be a reason for the powers coming online, or the story wouldn’t have much to hang on.

It also figures that you can read the blogs of the various charters, such as Hiro Nakamura the Asian bloke who can stop time (his blog is the only one online at the moment it does appear). Shakes head people have even posted to the blog that was made for the charter … loll its interesting reading to a a degree.

The site is still under development, from the looks of things since a lot of the links such as the Quiz, Downloads and the like are not yet up and running. Though the interactive comic book is online and viewable, which is interesting to view.

Oh well I guess you can say that at the moment I am looking forward to watching the show and seeing how it develops, and if it goes as other shows have, it will never see a second season. But like everything time will tell.
