SCI FI Wire | The News Service of the SCI FI Channel: "Jonathan A. Steinberg and Josh Schaer, two of the creators of CBS' upcoming post-apocalyptic series Jericho, told SCI FI Wire that the series will be told from the point of view of its smalltown residents and that viewers will only slowly begin to learn about the nuclear disaster that is at the show's core."

Okay, you know what? After the failure of most of last season's serialized TV shows (Threshold, Surface, Invasion, Reunion, Heist, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some), I'm not going to get hooked on another one. Yes, Lost, 24 and Prison Break managed to succeed, mostly because they aren't like anything else. And I'll stick with the ones I watch, which are still on. But I'm not jumping on board any new ones, because it's just not a satisfying viewing experience when you never get the end of the story. So thanks for letting me know this up front, creators of Jericho. Best of luck to you.
