Joshua Watched the First Season of Jericho

Well, is watching, actually, but that doesn't fit the song as well.  I'm on the fourth episode right now.  The show's an interesting little drama thus far.  I'm really impressed with how quickly and thoroughly they fleshed out all of the characters.  The drama has a tendency to fall closer to melodrama, but, due to the high stakes of the world of the show, I think it actually works.  There's also a knack for final images.  Some really haunting and delicate images tend to fill the final seconds of every episodes, and really manages to draw you back in to see what's going to happen next. The acting is solid enough, with Skeet Ulrich not quite reaching his Miracle level of awesome, but, he's still much better than he usually get credit for.

From what I've read there's a big change 2/3rds of the way through the season, so I'm looking forward to that.  iTunes has the pilot up for free online.  I'd recommend checking it out.
