  • Newbie question

    I've never seen or even heard of Jeremiah. Can someone give me an idea of what its about?

    Also, what season is it in, and what season is currently available on DVD?

    Is it an long-reaching story arc like B5 was and Crusade was meant to be?

    Thanks!

    Jeremiah was a show that JMS did for Showtime a couple of years ago. It ran two seasons and starred Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Sean Astin joined the show in the second season.

    Also, what season is it in, and what season is currently available on DVD?
    It ran for two seasons. The first was 20 hours including the pilot and that's out on DVD. The second was 15 hours (13 by JMS) and we haven't heard about that coming out on DVD yet but hope so.

    Is it an long-reaching story arc like B5 was and Crusade was meant to be?
    Definitely an arc but each season had a different focus. The story was set in a post-apolcalyptic US where all of the people over the age of puberty had died 15 years prior in the Big Death. It's based on a comic by Hermann Huppen (sp?). The concept was that everything from before the Death was pretty much used up, so the survivors had to decide how to build a new world.

    I liked it. A lot. Being on cable there were few restrictions as to language, nudity and other taboos so JMS was able to stretch some and show how brutal a society that grew that way might actually be. The stories were good to great and the acting was great. My favorites were Kurdy (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) and Mr. Smith (Sean Astin).

      So I take it its not like buying Crusade where you end up with a lot of stuff hanging unresolved because the show ended prematurely?

        It didn't seem so to me. JMS knew fairly far in advance that he wouldn't be returning but he did set up some things that could have been continued into a third season if they'd decided to do so. So there are some things that I'll always wonder about but I found the ending pretty satisfactory in general.

        I've lost track lately but I believe that Platinum Studios was wanting to continue the series in comic form. You might want to look around for word on that.
