Well I finally decided to queue this up and watch it.  Only about six episodes in but it does have me wanting more.  I've always like Ulrich, and his characters mysterious past has me intrigued.  He seems to know how to do everything.  The Hawkins character REALLY needs to lose the family but other than that it seems like a decent show.

Yeah, there's lots wrong with Jericho... But it still gets you addicted.  By the time you get to the finale, you're forgiving all the retarded parts.

No word on the second season, though.  You'll be mad come the finale.

If I know that it will probably be the last episode it'll be fine.  I mean it can't be any worse than watching the last episode for Firefly.

It's not the last.  We get half a season coming up in the winter/spring.  The plan being to wrap up all the shit they left hanging in the finale.

And this might be a perfect storm for Jericho, in terms of getting a renewal.

Sources told SyFy Portal just ahead of CBS' mid-season scheduling announcement that the network is gearing up for a premiere of "Jericho's" second season during the last week of January. The source wasn't too far off, however, as CBS has instead announced the show will premiere Feb. 12. "Jericho" is the only regular scripted program getting that late of a start into the new mid-season.

"There isn't a lot of fare out there, so this could be a chance to help the network shine during sweeps," the source said. "The higher-ups here are paying attention to overall scheduling, and they're looking to do everything they can to make sure 'Jericho' isn't up against 'American Idol.'"

CBS announced last summer that "Jericho" would return for a shortened second season of seven episodes, but made it clear the show would be a mid-season replacement. It's unclear what would have to make room for "Jericho" to hit the air, but the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike may be helping it.

"Jericho" will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET, which means no competition at all from Fox, and limited competition from the other networks. Right now, NBC and ABC air "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Boston Legal" in that timeslot, but it's unclear what exactly the networks will have their come February because of the strike-shortened seasons of those shows.

CBS currently airs "Cane" in the timeslot.

"There will be a few shows leaving the [schedule] because of ratings, but with writers on the picket lines, the net can be far more creative in how they schedule the show," the source said. "While the other nets will be depending on reality skeins, CBS wants to give a one-two punch with some strong scripted programming just in time for sweeps."

"Sweeps" is a period once each quarter where Nielsen Media Research provides more extensive audience demographic breakdowns in its top markets, data the networks depend on when setting advertising rates.

"Jericho" originally premiered in September 2006, but took a long break until mid-February earlier this year to lost more than a quarter of its audience, and face tough competition from Fox's reality programming. Other shows also suffered strong drop-offs following long mid-season breaks including "Lost" on ABC and "Heroes" on NBC.

Stanley Richmond (Brad Beyer) made a promise to ask former snob Mimi Clark (Alicia Coppola) to marry him and it looks like Season 2 will deliver on that promise as Mimi and Stanley decide to tie the knot.

"We get engaged," Alicia Coppola told TV Guide. "It's wonderful how it happens, in typical Mimi/Stanley fashion. It's funny, warmhearted and fuzzy."

Coppola was pretty unforthcoming about any other storylines, except that tension between the towns Jericho and New Bern will grow.

"It's really to the point now where Jericho doesn't know whether or not we really are going to be able to forge ahead. I can't give away too much, but it's going to be exciting," she said.

Coppola was free to show her appreciation of the fans that "single-handedly brought us back."

The new Season 2 trailer is now available on the Web

Not much to the preview.  God bless the Allied States of America!

Okay!  Six hours of chores done.  12:30 on a sunny, warm Saturday.  Time to draw the curtains and watch the first half of season two.  *loser*

Nice.  We're now six months after the nukes and one month after the season one finale.  After a quick prologue setting the stage for the second season, we're off into a world of peace and renewal... The bombs are blamed on the Iranians and the Koreans, a fascist pseudo-dictatorship rules the States west of the Mississippi, and all the States east of the river are in chaos.  But nothing's easy... Fun first episode.  Already hoping season two gets the ratings to continue the story.

So, lessons learned... They've taken out most of the lovey dovey shit.  Farm boy still has tax girl and all that is going on, but all the other retarded shit is settled and everyone's caught up in the screwiness of the new regime:  The western US government in Cheyenne versus the eastern US government in Columbus with a newly independent Texas playing the two off of each other.  The western government is generally evil, as we knew at the end of season one, but Jericho, of course, falls right under their command...and is the epicenter of intrigue since that's where Hawkins and his bomb is hiding out and the Big Bad, who we again met at the end of season one, is vaguely clued in about that.

Beautifully done how the ray of sunshine brought by the soldiers of the western government, along with TV and power and gas, is tarnished by their bad guy status from the get-go.  The show doesn't try to gloss over the big reveal at the end of season one that the new America is fucked up.  We continue on without any changes.

Man, episode two feels like a full on movie.  Everything's upside down for poor little Skeet Ulrich, and the pretty boy president of the western states is in town.
