Jericho, the series about the inhabitants of a Kansas town surviving a nuclear war, has been picked up for a full season by CBS. I find this astounding since I've never seen it, no one I know has ever seen it, and it's generated absolutely no buzz in my various science fiction orbits.
So who's watching this thing? I've got to figure that it's gaining traction with mainstream America, which really makes me curious as to what the show's about. We've been talking about what it'll take for science fiction to regain its popular attraction ... might this series have a clue? Or, despite its highly speculative, end-of-the-world nature, is this show not considered science fiction?
