Jericho story should be rebooted
Jericho, as it was, does not need to go any further. What I would like to see is a reboot of the story focussing more on the plot to blow up all the cities
that got bombed, and how the conspiracy came to be and how Hawkins and his other folks try to bring it down.
The bomb is now in Texas, so Jericho really is irrelevant to the story now. I would like to see how Hawkins and Jake would be able to expose the plot,
and bring those who are guilty to justice, or death. It could be something more along the lines of '24'.
They could go back, and tell how the conspiracy started, how Hawkins got involved, and focus more on the action, intrigue, and talk about how Texas fights with the Cheyenne government. The one thing that I haven't pieced together is whether Dallas and Houston were able to survive or not. I don't think they ever named the city that Jake flew to after the two fighter planes from Texas intervened and shot down the Cheyenne planes.
Being from Ohio, I have to say that having Columbus spared and identified as a seat of the government was a nice touch. Maybe they could go into that angle a little more also.
I like the character of Hawkins, and Lennie plays him really well. I would love to see more of his story.
A suggestion for a new title of the show? How about simply 'Hawkins: Covert Ops'? I resisted the impulse to suggest 'Jake and
the Black Man'. LOL
