Jericho Mistakes or complaints
I watched the pilot and right away noticed that they weren't very careful in
editing. Hero is approached by his big brother, who gives him a big,
entrapping bear hug. An immediate switch in POV shows the brother's arms
*under* the hero's arms, not over. That dropped me out of suspension of
right away. Such boo-boos can be funny, but this was just careless and
wonder if anyone was paying attention.
Other character building points, like the father's/mayor's disappointment with
his son's (the hero's) lack of ambition seemed really trite to me. I could
almost hear dramatic smallville music coming.
Yet there were a few little twists that made me think that *some* writer for
the show was trying to break stereotype, as in giving the other candidate for
the mayor's office a chance to show he has some leadership qualities. The
twist about the son listening to his mother's voice on the answering machine
was a good one. And that black fellow, is he really a newcomer to town
possessing possibly good survival info, or did he come with the prisoners in
that crashed van? The hero's mom was nice... but a bit trite as well.
I'll watch a few more episodes (because it's free), but they better wow me or
I'm dropping it. After the bombs go off, it's pretty much all reaction and
little in the way of special effects. I've been spoiled by really good
on nonbasic cable shows :)
