When Jake Green returns to his Kansas small-town home Jericho, where his dad Johnston is mayor, everyone is preoccupied with petty private business and family matters, but that changes drastically after a completely unexpected explosion. It soon becomes clear there has been a nuclear attack, but neither by whom nor on which scale. Suddenly life in Jericho, and as the inhabitants gradually discover all over the disintegrating USA, becomes a more primordial struggle for survival, where unexperienced dangers, primitive as well as technological, have to be weighed against pressing primal needs, such as food, fuel and self-defense against plunderers, invaders and even each-other. Jake, whose private story like that of other main characters slowly becomes disclosed to us, proves extremely resourceful and a smart hero, while his father's mayoral authority and even that of the only available medical professionals is soon challenged and undermined, criminal potentials are tapped into by circumstances and good people must rise to the daunting occasion assertively or perish. Even when contact is made with neighboring surviving towns, desperate rivalry soon cancels out solidarity.

I've had a hard time with this show. During the first season I was tempted several times to quit because it wasn't what I expected. When it became what I expected it was gone for good.

What's left is another really good show that had to suffer the ratings dictate because this wasn't the easy entertainment most people are looking for today. This was tough, it showed people in a desperate time doing desperate things and being able to do something they never thought being capable. And when the show ended there where infinite story possibilities.

Exceptionell cast that brings some great emotional character moments. Would have loved to see more of it. Have to rate it as it is, though. That's why I only gave it 7. But had potential to become 9.
