Jericho -mmm mmm good, and mushy link love to boot.

May 11, 2007

I just finished watching the latest episode of Jericho I had recorded from Wednesday night. Awesome awesome awesome!

I’ve watched the series from the beginning (based on an initial critique from Kent Newsome by the way – a testament to the power of ‘word of mouth’), and it’s just kept me always coming back for more. I don’t watch much tv otherwise, so I’ve tried to figure out what it is about the series thats so compelling to me.

I think it comes down to two things:

1. The way they are able to intermix the personal and global storylines so well. They manage to give proper attention to each, without diluting either; and,

2. The show manages to provide satisfactory and substantial milestones in each episodes and also supplies unexpected plot twists and great setup for the next episodes to keep me coming back for more.

Kudos to the people who create Jericho. There is still something to be said for damn good television.

Following on from David’s good practice and at the risk of copycatting Kent and now Earl, a couple of ‘Thank You Links'(tm) go out to my inkscape screencasting compadre heathenx, and nate who commented on my recent post about mp3 splitting.

I really appreciate all you guys.
