The Latest and the Greatest

Greatest - If you guys aren't watching Jericho on CBS, you really have to start. Every Tuesday night my husband and I are glued to the tv. Its a show about the "end of the world as we know it." Season one starts with the news that several US cities were bombed. This small town called Jericho, now has to find out how they will survive this crisis. National government is gone along with the usually supply routes. Its one of those shows that make you think. If you're interested CBS allows you to watch them all online. The greatest thing about this is if you are a nerd who is into the whole conspiracy around a show. There are a lot of companion sites to Jericho. I'd give you more information about them, but I've only discovered a couple. Great great show.

Even if you don't watch will you click on the links? I want CBS to keep this show around. If you remember this was the show that they showed the first half, took a 3 month break then wondered why the ratings weren't as high the second half. It got canceled, but then fans did this wonderful thing. They convinced CBS that they needed to bring this show back. They sent tons of peanuts and CBS gave us 7 more episodes. So far no one knows if there will be a Season 3, but I hope they will keep it around. We do not have enough shows that make you think.

Latest - Soon I will be holding my very first contest. I just got an e-mail about it yesterday. I'm not yet sure how I will pick a winner, but the prize will be a new book coming out March 18. Its called "On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness" and is written by Andrew Peterson. More to come.

My husband and daughter LOVE Jericho. I haven't allowed myself to get too caught up in it as I've already got two most favoritist shows ever. They were nearly giddy when I told them it had been renewed afterall.

I LOVE Andrew Peterson!! Can't wait for the contest. You can be sure I'll be playing along. :o)

I haven't seen the show, but I am kind of partial to the name. ;)

I sooooo love Jericho. I actually haven't watched last week's episode yet (it's taped, don't worry), but I'm so excited because now I'm going to have two episodes to watch back to back. Once I find the time :)

I discovered it last summer and watched the whole first season online then was crushed to hear it had been canceled. So excited it came back, but I'm a little nervous yet. I keep clicking to watch online just in the hopes that CBS is noticing!
