So Jericho ended last night. For those of you who don't know, Jericho is a post-nuclear view of life in a small town in Kansas. It's pretty darn good. We don't know if CBS has picked it up for next year or not. We hope so. Regardless, last night's episode pissed us off. They killed off Gerald McRaney's character. Dammit! We loved his grouchy-bear of an outdoors-man-mayor-good-father-devoted-husband character. He got shot. He died. I'm so mad. But you know what? It was good storytelling. It sets up a whole "dumping the leadership on the reluctant prodigal son who will seek out revenge" kind of thing. I also think it means the show will focus more on the young people versus the old. It could play out quite nicely...if the show gets picked up for next season. It's too bad though because McRaney was excellent on the show and Pamela Reed as his wife is as good as I've ever seen her.
Arrgh! I love/hate getting hooked on these stories/characters.
