Jericho Survives Armageddon, Succumbs to CBS
We got the news this morning from a local news site that the quirky, depressing, scifi-gone-mainstream series Jericho bought the big one. I’ll obviously have to rethink my feed crawling habits if I hear about this a day late on a mundy site, but the larger issue remains: CBS is punishing us for their idiotic scheduling of this standout show.
The only new genre series they’re offering this fall deals with a theme undoubtedly addressed better in Forever Knight and Angel: tortured vampire seeking redemption and mortal love. Yawn.
Honestly, if it wasn’t for the British — who keep producing great sci-fi like excellently cheesy Doctor Who and mindbendingly retro Life on Mars — I’d have to start reading books again.
