What I'm Watching: Jericho

Jericho: Season 2, Episode 2 “Condor” (B+)

I really like George Newbern as the new President. He is comforting and friendly yet there is still something off about the whole situation. The alternate history textbooks in particular are quite frightening. This season may have a good deal more sunlight, but everything is just as eerie and disturbing as ever. I had always thought that Alicia Coppola as Mimi stuck out from the rest of the cast in a bit of an obnoxious way, yet she does fit in now and I commend the show for shaping her character and keeping her as a central yet not distracting force on the show. I like the omnipresence of Jennings & Rall and how you just know there is something fishy about them yet they seem to be doing everything they can to help everyone get back on their feet. And while the “previously on” segment sort of gave it away, welcome back D.B. Sweeney!
