Post-apocalyptic stories have always fascinated TV viewers, from The Walking Dead to The Last Man on Earth. Jericho had the potential to be one of the best if it could have aired more than two seasons.
After a series of nuclear bomb attacks in target US cities, the town of Jericho finds itself cut off from the rest of the country. Slowly, the story comes into focus and factions across America rise up to take control in the aftermath. The residents of Jericho find themselves thrust into the conflict as pivotal players in the game.
An often gripping drama that played out its tension well, more seasons were definitely needed to flesh out the whole story. Unfortunately, that didn't happen though seasons three and four found life in comic book form.
