Hmmm, words that come to mind about Jericho... 2-dimensional, predictable, Star Trek like in it's lack of connection between some episodes (why are they so concerned over getting the generator from the airdrop when they made such a fuss in an earlier episode about the generator at the hospital? Does that generator no longer work? Who knows because it wasn't mentioned. What happened to the perfectly good doctor they rescued from the mercenaries? He's in one extra episode then just disappears)

Watching this show is like having a bad tooth, you know it's just going to bring you pain but you keep hoping that it will get better. Every time you touch that tooth you get reminded that instead of getting better, it's all pain.
