Episode 34 - The Return of the Sarah Mason Love

This week we bring back our look at Season One of Jericho, discussing the episode "Black Jack."  We also have news and discussion of the upcoming San Diego Comic Con event. Enjoy!

News:
Comic Con
We believe that we will be getting some type of announcement at Comic Con regarding Jericho's future. We all need to be patient and let's see what news will come out at the end of July. The producers and DDP went silent with communication immediately after Wondercon, back in April. Prior to that we had been communicating with them very frequently. When we kept pushing them for a release date the tfaw website link appeared on the Save Jericho Facebook Page.

Ratkeeper will be at Comic Con in July, manning the Jericho Fan table, with 3 other Rangers. We will get live updates.

Issue #4: July 7th
Issue #5: July 28th

Beth Grant (Gracie Leigh) to star in play "Grace and Glorie"  at Colony Theatre in LA June 9 -- July 18

DB Sweeney's (John Goetz) online web series "Universal Dead" launches first episode
Universal Dead (UnDead for short) started out as a movie idea that was kicked around for a while by Vernon Mortensen and Kelly Parks.  The original idea was to make it into a feature film and distribute it through Unconventional Films' sister company, Rogue Arts.

In the mean time, Kelly and Vernon, along with their business partner Neil Trusso, began production on Unconventional Films' first web series, "The Crusader," starring Stargate SG-1's Colin Cunningham and featuring Star Trek Enterprise's Gary Graham.

Then one day Kelly wrote a short film called "The Presentation,"  which took some of the ideas for Universal Dead and melded them together with Kelly's theory about how zombies function ("It's not a virus!") and suddenly Universal Dead the web series was born.

Skeet Ulrich's (Jake Green) new show not on CBS' schedule yet but there is still hope
The show, starring Sissy Spacek, Rachelle Lefevre and Skeet Ulrich, was produced by “ER” producer John Wells. Despite that pedigree, CBS apparently wasn’t impressed enough with the show, which follows a team of doctors who travel around the country helping in emergencies.

Some really great clips from Gerald McRaney's (Johnston Green) new TV show "Undercovers"  (NBC)


Post Apocalyptic News

The Road DVD will be released on May 25th
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing: just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless cannibalistic bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a rusting shopping cart of scavenged food--and each other.

Radium, a post apocalyptic story, set in Israel
15 years have passed since the nuclear bomb dropped on the Nation of Israel; and Tel-Aviv was turned into a quarantine zone for those unfortunates found with high levels of radiation in their systems. Taken away from their families and loved ones, these lost souls are forever sentenced to a life of survival in this shattered, lawless city. Layla — a strong-willed Israeli woman infiltrates Tel-Aviv in search of her long lost love. Aided by a tough ex-soldier named Raziel, the two journey through the hazardous streets of the city, only to find that the reality inside, is not what it seemed like on the outside.
