    I see that Hallmark will be showing Jericho next week. However, when I went to their website they state that they can't broadcast in widescreen.

    Is this a problem with Sky? Brave showed the Unit but that was 4:3 ration too. I really can't be bothered if these small channels broadcast these shows in an essentially cut format.

    Anyone know why this is so?

    For whatever reason they have chosen not to have the facilities to broadcast in anamorphic widescreen, it's probably simple economics.

    Jericho will turn up on ITV at a later date and will probably be in widescreen.

    Dear god how did Hallmark get one of the surprise US hits of last year, a great show filmed and shown in HD then bought over here on 4:3 rofl.... Maybe nobody was interested in the rights, at least Hallmark can show it between Touched by an Angel re-runs rofl.

    Hallmark has a tradition of getting some decent imports:)
    I was watching the various L&O's on there before I finally gave in and downloaded them plus they had both seasons of The Agency which was a decent show and not forgetting House.

    As for Jericho it's probably the same reason why Heroes ended up on Scifi, no other UK broadcaster was willing to take a chance on the scifi genre after last seasons failure of the 3 big network shows.

    Really like this show, kinda follows a formula in US tv these days which is have a large mysterious back story and have episode issues aswell. MY problem with the show is the music.
    Give it a break! There is music in every scene. Even albums have breaks in music. They are using music to tell you how you are supposed to feel (I don't mind that usually but when someone is eating cornflakes I think I can guess).
    Also it's a preachy in it's "hometown, everyone needs each other" gets to be abit annoying after it's happened the 20th time.

    But like I say, I do like the show:D

    The PQ on Jericho in the UK is far worse than the 350 MB downloads you get.
    Even when it comes to ITV it will still not be as good.

    Whats happened to Jericho - my series link has vanished and it doesnt appear to be on next week?

    Any ideas anyone - is it because we have caught up with the US pace or just because Halmark are moving it without telling anyone.

    That's really clever, you wait until the new year to premiere a US Autumn show so you can run through without a break and if possible finish a week behind, given the mid-season break the show had in the US the Hallmark channel should have had time to adjust their schedules.

    I get the impression that Hallmark weren't expecting a break at this time. They usually start a series, and run straight through. The only exception I can think of is, maybe, Crossing Jordan. Taking a break after episode 11 is a bit better than episode 15 which is so-near-yet-so-far-away from the end. If I was in America I would be livid about all this stop-start showing of programmes. On the other hand, we suffer it in the UK, to a lesser degree, because of shorter seasons, e.g. Life On Mars.

    not really a special, its episode 12 "The Day Before", flashing back to before the bomb and but also continuing from where episode 11 left off. There was a "special" recap episode of episodes 01-11 called "Return To Jericho"

    It's a great episode though - kind of makes up for the earlier lack of inertia. I think they listened to the criticism that 'Lost' was getting on fan forums and realised they needed to pick up the pace themselves or risk being cancelled.

    No its not - Episode 12 is on next week - this is the special recap episode, the details of which are below (taken from TV.com

    Special. Return to Jericho

    This special presentation sheds light on all the mysteries that occurred during the first 11 episodes, detailing everything between the day the bombs went off and finding out that someone is coming to visit Hawkins and that Emily’s fiancé is still alive.


    To see a synopsis of episode 12 highlight the spoiler
    12. The Day Before.
    The lives of Jake and Hawkins are explored during this flashback episode. This episode ends at 36 hours before the bombs went off. Sarah is introduced and is associated to Hawkins. Jake had been living in San Diego.

    That's sort of what I was suggesting about Episode 12 not being a "special" episode (I'm up to date with the US run ;)) - as I have no idea what's being broadcast here, and the previous poster described this special as though it was episode 12 :)

    Ah, sorry, a bit of confusion there.

    Whats being shown tomorrow is the special recap of the first 11 episodes outlining what happend before the bombs went off - then next week is episode 12 which just happens to be a flash back episode showing what happens before the bombs go off - confused, I know I am ;)
