This is the way to go if you have not acquired Jericho Seaso

"With season two just being completed and put out for sale this compilation would be the solution if you have yet to purchase season one. Jericho, in my estimation, was one of the best dramas on TV. Nicely, it is a change of pace from the great investigation, police or courtroom dramas that are so very good and popular.
The neat thing about Jericho as a series it is a continuation of a story flow, you get hooked from the moment the bomb goes off. There are scenes in the first episode reminscent of "The Day After" and other nuclear war type movies of the 80s. However, the people seem real and you get into the characters right away.
There are families, three and four generations of hometown Americans. This movie shows values in relationships and core values of a people trying to survive and overcome hardships in a small town. For those not in the know, Jericho was supposed to end with Season One. There was a firestorm after the last episode where a reference to the battle of the buldge is mentioned and the term Nuts is used. Well, the heroes of season two include the thousands of viewers who sent tons and tons of packaged peanuts to CBS demanding that Jericho stay on for one more year. CBS relented and ran seven episodes. That is season two.
However the seven episodes took on a big screen dimension. Interestingly, many of the episodes in Jericho had a big screen feel to it. The last episodes of season one and virtually all of season two gave you the big screen feel. Sadly, with so much more of a focus on getting the meat of the story in season two, you miss many characters and possible themes. You have to watch season one. There is the character who is the town bad boy with a very large group of men as his possee. What could they have done with them in season two?
Well, I guess the only thing left is a possible movie. Too bad that Jericho was placed against Idol the first year and put on at 10 PM the next. Really was a welcome relief to reality TV and will be missed. Jericho will most likely have a 'cult' following for years to come and when people get around to watching it, they will wonder why they missed in in the first place.
Jericho is a find

"Wow. I'd never seen the show and bought the whole series based on positive reviews--so glad I did. Great characters, story lines, action, drama, & very entertaining. To me this show is 'X-Files' without all the Aliens, 'Lost' without all the confusing plot twists, and '24' with more heroes than just Jack--and I like all those shows. The whole series has a ton of extras I enjoyed and at nearly 22 hrs of entertainment this set is a bargain.
If your thinking why buy this series if its so good but ends after 1.5 seasons? Well, lots of great films end with you loving the characters and wanting more. 'Jericho' is a 20 hr 'movie' that is very satisfying and leaves you wanting more--how often can you sayt that about TV?"
Great set, but not worth buying if you already have another

"Jericho is certainely a very good show, both seasons are great. But as of this set, it's nothing more than a cartboard cover housing the previously released sets of Seasons 1 & 2 plus a bonus disc in a tiny cardboard case. The new features are not that much interesting. The only valuable reason to buy this set is if it's cheaper to buy this instead of the individual sets. Otherwise, forget the new special features and get Season 1 & 2 separetely."
"Another fine series suspiciously cancelled"

"Extremely addictive and fun to watch, however once again I believe this show was cancelled more because of it's Political ramifications than any fudged ratings that CBS may have used to justify said cancellation. CBS themselves said that they brought back the second season due to the largest fan outcry they had ever witnessed. Well if that was the case, how could the ratings have been so low? hmmmmmmm. perhaps the subject matter was too close to the truth for the "Powers that be" to allow to continue."
