Jericho Episode 7 – Long Live the Mayor

Here is the seventh of a weekly installment discussing an episode of the popular TV series – Jericho – which aired originally back in 2006. Every Tuesday night we are watching an episode and then will discuss what happens the following day. It can be watched free on Netflix or purchased on VUDU. Jericho is also available on DVD.




Jake tries to make a deal with Jonah to get the food back for the town. The deal falls through when Gray Anderson convinces that it is the wrong thing to do and will make the town look week. Mayor Green’s health worsens and the decision is made to go search for crucial medication outside of Jericho.



Although the story is entertaining the lack of suffering at least so far is just unrealistic. People seem entirely too at ease with the complete loss of electricity, most transportation, refrigerators, etc. I would like to think those in my circle would at least attempt to make the best of a bad situation and maintain some sense of humor. So – maybe Jericho isn’t being so unrealistic as we adapt. Sitting around and dwelling on the situation isn’t going to improve things.

Specific to this episode medical preparedness is an issue. Fever control and infection which in modern times is generally non-life threatening is now a critical health issue. Antibiotics are an item that has helped extend the life of humans for decades and with its absence life expectancy will decrease dramatically.

Due to the townspeople being isolated along with their limited supplies networking is something to seriously consider. Having contacts in other nearby towns and areas can lead to exchange or information and bartering.
