    Jericho: "Sedition" Review
    Major Beck Locks down Jericho.
    by Tory Ireland Mell
    March 19, 2008 - During the opening scene of this episode, for a brief moment I thought the season 2 dream of near perfection was over. It felt like they were trying too hard to be a slick Hollywood action movie with the snappy forced mystery dialogue Beck was spouting, but the moment we caught a glimpse of the names they were going after on the wall, once again, this episode took off and never let up, not for a moment!

    A quick little nod in episode six to peanuts, not that we needed a reminder of what brought this epic show back from the grave, but it was nice to see. I felt like Jericho was saying thanks for all of your support and continuing to watch us this season.

    Beck proves his no-nonsense attitude and shows character depth in his actions. Major Beck is in an impossible situation in a world that is nothing like it once was. He has compassion and a questioning mind, and those two combined will always jeopardize your duty as an officer of the government. It's what makes his character so likeable.

    During Jake's interrogation he brought down some acting thunder with a performance that wasn't over the top, and struck just the right chords for a very memorable scene.

    I don't think it was totally necessary to bring Hawkins' family back, as they didn't serve a purpose in this episode, but with one more episode left in the season, who know what could happen? Another character brought back, but completely serving a purpose, was Gail Green. I can't say she was completely missed, but seeing her again felt like home. Another example of the exceptional writing on this show is the misdirection they put into each episode. At first I thought they were bring Gail back in a hallucination, and when I saw that she was actually there I was led to believe that she was helping Beck, which isn't totally unbelievable. Gail was a nice character who mostly wanted to help, but then she leans in and reassures Jake help is on the way, and I was like, YES! This show is here to stay!



    - CBSSoldiers invade JerichoThere is an attention to minor details throughout this season and once again in this episode. The military patches that say A.S. Army instead of U.S. Army was a really nice touch.

    A dangerous thing to do when writing a show as fun as Jericho are hallucinations. But they did a great job not making it cheesy and it was enjoyable to watch, and we actually learned something.

    Each episode this season has had some sort of WOW factor, and this episode was no exception. It all comes down to one thing, REVOLUTION! I mean I really got the chills when Jake said that. This show feels so real, and so believable that you can't help love it.

    The mystery man and Hawkins have this amazing relationship and we have yet to see the man, and it is killing me not knowing who he is.

    This is a show about the little town that could… it's amazing how important Jericho has become to America. I find myself rooting for them and wanting to move there.
