The good news is there are only two seasons, so it isn't that big of a commitment to watch and see for yourself.
    I've definitely seen both seasons in their entirety before, but it was about 15 years ago. I remember it having some solid intrigue but never really seemed to go anywhere with it, and a lot of 'problem of the week' type plots where Perry often ended up bedding the female lead. I think there was some kind of very ill conceived native american apparition at some point too. Memories are vague. Could be a fun re-watch, but if it didn't grab me the first time, I'm likely to be even harsher on it now.

    Some things were kind of silly - like the scene in the opening credits of a horse pulling a defunct car. But for the most part I liked it a lot - particularly the second season. Just recently watched "Man of Iron, Woman Under Glass" again recently and really liked it. Favorite characters were Mister Smith and Kurdy.

    Is this actually 'good' when placed on the scales of modern TV? I remember it being a tad corny.

    I actually started a re-watch with a friend recently, only 2-3 episodes every few weeks, but I like the re-watch value. It is still available on HBO Nordic, just hoping it will stay on until we finish.

    Ah well. At least it's widescreen, because the 4:3 version (DVD) is quite the downgrade.
    Looking at it more I was wrong - it's 4:3

    Trivia note: When Lee takes Kurdy to meet Megan, the code he has Kurdy enter is 71754 - also known as JMS' birthday, July 17, 1954.

    Widescreen, yes. Doesn't say anything about HD.

    Exhuming this thread to let folks know that Jeremiah Season 2 is available with Amazon Prime. Not season one, but that's still available on DVD.

    I liked season two a LOT!

    Shudder. It still surprises me how many concessions had to be made for network TV!

    God bless the likes of HBO and Netflix. Although, that said, we are often seeing the inverse of that now; with TV shows often aspiring to be dark for the sake of it. This is just as bad.

    WOW! I could actually watch it in my area . . . if I had cable TV.

    I'd never heard of it before but there's apparently a new SF-oriented station called COMET that will be showing Jeremiah starting in September.
