This is a follow-up to my last mini-review on Jericho:
- Mary’s motivation for sleeping with Eric after telling him off was revealed: she thought he was really going to leave his wife this time. Which would be okay, if she wasn’t in her thirties and the owner of a bar which is almost surely trolled by married men who are really, really going to leave their wives this time on a regular basis. And where will this lead? Will she move on, like an adult? Or will she obsess on him or tell his wife, thus reaffirming that he’s really such a stud that even when he’s bad to a woman, she just can’t get enough? Time will tell.
- Alicia Coppola’s character has officially become the show’s second Uppity Prissy Princess, but unlike the other, she’s a grown woman. She’s from Washington, D.C., an IRS agent who’s probably about to get shipped with the guy she just audited who’s trying to get out of the $850,000 he owes in taxes, and she’s had some training about what would happen if the US was attacked by terrorists. Now are you ready for the kicker? She still thinks her apartment in D.C. is there waiting for her when she escapes from this boring little town. Right. I’m sure the people with the nukes forgot to include the freakin’ federal capital when they blew up all the other major American cities.
It’s not all bad. April, Heather, the mom, Emily, Bonnie… all good so far. It could get worse, it could get better. I’ll keep posting.
