- I just watched the pilot and found it interesting. The brief screenshot of
the Joint Session of Congress I predict offers a clue to another storyline
later in the season dealing with COG. Perhaps Whas DC and everyone in the
area was fried and we'll hear from the designated survivor?
There is apparently 1 ham operator in Jericho. Sadly they portrayed him as a
bumbling UFO nut...
