  • Jeremiah also on local stations

    I just noticed they were running Jeremiah on KCAL last night here in Los Angeles. I don't know if other local stations are carrying the show or not.

    edit: Sunday nights at 11:00 PM for those who live here

    I caught a few episodes on my local The CW affiliate. It wasn't bad...but it just didn't do it for me. Post-apocalyptic stories are tough things to do. I didn't even check to see if JMS was the writer of these particular episodes.

    Was there any reason to edit the show? It was on SHO, right? I don't see the point of putting shows on premium channels unless they have a good bit of cussing and nudity.
    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

      In the original versions there was a lot of language, topless females and some fairly graphic sex scenes. As I recall, knowing that they wanted to syndicate it in addition to the Showtime run, alternate versions of some scenes were shot. I preferred the originals as they drove home the differences in how kids might grow up without the inhibitions of adults but at least we don't get a lot of silenced cussing though there is some.

        Sam Egan wrote many episodes as well, and I think Sara Barnes wrote a couple.

          With one exception, I found the Sam Egan episodes barely tolerable due to their obviousness. The exception was "Out of the Ashes" which showed last night on the Sci-Fi channel. It was still pretty obvious but I loved the library story.

          Sara 'Samm' Barne's episodes were good and I especially liked one scene in particular from "A Means to an End" when
          Theo experiences the joys of working plumbing to the tune of the 2001 theme. Way over the top but very fun.


          BTW, for those interested, the closest thing Jeremiah had to a Lurker's Guide was the Abyss site here: http://abyss.hubbe.net/jeremiah/

            Jan, I watched Out of the Ashes again last night, and while there bits of it I liked (the wonderful irony of a librarian who can't read), I think the over-obvious climactic scene ruined a lot of it for me. And the 'B' story with Jeremiah helping a crippled girl to scatter her ashes over a giant chasm was a bit too goofy for my taste.

            Incidentally, for those who aren't paying attention, the final season on episode aired on Sci Fi last night, which means they'll be starting season two next time.

              Oh, I completely agree about the obviousness, Joe. I think the things I liked were the things that were said about books and the fact that Red's girlfriend was bitter about having been crippled by something that would have been relatively easily fixed before the Death. Most of the time I found the Egan episodes almost unwatchable but for me this one was okay.

                That reminds me of the Mad TV skit of a preview of The Sopranos in syndication.
