A critique of Jericho TV show
However, I am finding some holes in the plot:
- Eric Green, the mayor's son, is cheating on his doctor wife with the local bar owner (gratuitous adultery sex scene at 7:30 PM for ya, Gavin). If in the event of a nuclear war, next to the gun store owner, I'd want to be as close as possible to a doctor. Just a little thing.
- When a group leaves to go find contact with the outside world, what do they drive? The biggest pickups and SUVs that suck gas like tomorrow. I'd think it would be difficult to get gas at the Kum N Go in a post-apocalyptic world, and driving a Hummer H2 would be bad idea.
- The rich girl, whose parents are probably dead, decides to throw a party 4 days after the blasts. Wonder if they were playing REM's "Its The End Of The World As We Know It"?
- The grocery store runs out of food after a run. The owner says her next shipment was due on the next train. Now, I don't think of Union Pacific and "just in time" delivery in the same sentence, and therefore, hauling perishable goods on train might not be a good idea. Maybe the writers should have considered that even though they are in the middle of Kansas, semi trucks can reach it in less than a day?
Anyway, just a few issues. It should be interesting to see if the writing picks up or we'll see more plot holes big enough to drive a grocery supply train through.
