Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Maggie, [[spoiler:fake Marine]] and Jake's love interest in ''Semper Fidelis'', shows up out of nowhere in ''One if by Land'' to help our heroes and takes a bullet for her trouble. Last seen slung over Johnston's shoulders. Did she bleed out? Recover completely? Was she accepted by Jericho in spite of her role in ''Semper Fidelis''? We never find out.

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Almost every action to save the town will be taken by Jake Green, the Green family, or Robert Hawkins. Gets to the point that in one episode, when asked for volunteers, the entire town hall turns to Jake, expecting him to volunteer.

The show was canceled, but brought back by a fan campaign. A second season was shown in 2008, detailing the rise of an oppressive new government based in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but the show was again canceled due to low ratings. (Although the last episode tied up most of the immediately-dangling plot-threads.) There was talk of a feature film but when no where but 2011 there was a six-comic series called ''Jericho Season 3: Civil War''.

* Deconstruction: The whole idea of a "post apocalyptic world" is deconstructed here. While it never gets as harsh as other portrayals, we see how the seeds of such events are sown.

* MenDontCry: Averted. Sometimes {{ManlyTears}} and sometimes more realistic puffy-eyed [[InelegantBlubbering gut-wrenching sobbing]]. Played straight with [[{{Badass}} Robert]], though, who probably had his tear ducts surgically removed along with [[TheStoic most of his soul]].

* ScaryBlackMan: [[{{Badass}} Robert]]. [[TheStoic Robert]]. [[LivingADoubleLife Robert]]. He is actually the only black man in the show ([[JustifiedTrope though it is set in rural Kansas]]), and even by the time we know he's a good guy, he's still a scary-ass man.
