Jericho S1E5/6: Federal Response/9:02:00am

Thank you so much for bearing with me during this short break – things have been enormously and unexpectedly busy the last couple of weeks, and, much as I love the chance to talk to you lovely people about this lovely show, I have mostly been lying face-down in piles of pillows and eating crisps by the multipack.

Jericho S1E3/4: Four Horseman/Walls of Jericho

You know, I wasn’t sure how well this show was going to stand up.
