All right, I admit it: I've been dragging my feet for the last few weeks regarding Jericho.
I was all set to do a weekly blog on each episode as it was re-run, and then CBS decided to screw with me by airing the mid-season recap after the 1st episode. As you may guess, this left me in a bit of a dilemma: how does one recap a recap episode? Should I pick up where it left off, and start blogging about "Blackjack"? I suppose I could write about each episode anyway, but it's not feasible for me to try to cram 11 episodes of commentary into a weekly blog.
Now, of course, it's over a week later and not only am I no closer to a decision, I'm two episodes behind schedule.
So here's what I'm gonna do: I will give you links to the individual episodes that CBS hasn't re-broadcasted as well as their summaries (in case you don't have the time to watch or would prefer to read a synopsis instead). I will also state that you must -- categorically MUST -- watch episode 12, "The Day Before," which will answer a lot of questions that new viewers will undoubtedly have.
Episode 2: Fallout Summary
Episode 3: Four Horsemen Summary
Episode 4: Walls of Jericho Summary
Episode 5: Federal Response Summary
Episode 6: 9:02 Summary
Episode 7: Long Live the Mayor Summary
Episode 8: Rogue River (I reviewed this episode earlier this year) Summary
Episode 9: Crossroads Summary
Episode 10: Red Flag Summary
Episode 11: Vox Populi Summary
Episode 12: The Day Before If you don't watch ANY of the others, watch THIS ONE! Summary
Okay. Now you're caught up to mid-season. I owe you two episode blogs -- ep 13, "Blackjack" and ep 14, "Heart of Winter" -- and then I'm caught up.
Unless I don't get to them by Friday, in which case I'll owe you three. C'est la guerre.
