JERICHO was one of the few new series that stood out in the 2006-2007 TV series. It cancelled and brought back for a second season (coming up in 2008 with 7 new episodes). It took a look at what would happen to a town and the surrounding areas after a nuclear attack on the USA.

A solid cast lead by Skeet Ulrich (who was also in the excellent and yet shortlived MIRACLES series) and Gerald McRaney helps sell the reality in the episodes. the writing is top notch as the town of Jericho, Kansas has to deal with power shortages, food problems, medical issues, raiders, radioactive rain, and even conflicts with a nearby town.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Audio commentaries were recorded for
PILOT: THE FIRST SEVENTEEN HOURS by Jon Turteltaub and Carol Barbee
FALLOUT by Jon Turteltaub and Carol Barbee
ROGUE RIVER by Jon Turteltaub and Skeet Ulrich
RED FLAG by Carol Barbie and Lennie James
VOX POPULI by Carol Barbie, Skeet Ulrich, and Lennie James

Deleted scenes for the following episodes (with oprional commentary by Dan Shotz and Karim Zreik) appear on the set:
PILOT: THE FIRST SEVENTEEN HOURS
FOUR HORSEMEN
WALLS OF HJERICHO
9:02
LONG LIVE THE MAYOR
CROSSROADS
VOX POPULI
BLACK JACK
ONE MAN'S TERRORIST
A.K.A.
CASUS BELLI
COALITION OF THE WILLING

Disc six included two featurettes:
BUILDING JERICHO- an in-depth behind-the-scenes featurette with cast and crew interviews
WHAT IF?- a look at the nuclear scare during the Cold War and how would we survive if a nuclear attack happened (and where we stand). It is the most interesting of the two featurettes. It's chilling and worth watching.

FINAL ANALYSIS: JERICHO is the underdog. The DVD set is a perfect gift for fans and people who haven't seen the series. The extras are just the frosting on the cake.
