I don't believe there was an EMP in Jericho, yes there was some things knocked out from the nukes, but that's more to do with infrastructure being taken down than things being taken down by EMP. They get into who did it in the second season.

After the second attack a lot of stuff quit working and they said it was EMP. It was never really explained but a lot of vehicles disappeared from the set.
Huh, I totally missed that.

It happened at the end of Episode 5 and the beginning of episode 6. Right after the Missiles are launched an EMP explodes in the sky and knocks out the power. Gray Anderson calls it a "heck of a pulse" in episode 7.

Don't read this if you want the surprise in Jericho unspoiled. Okay? Right...

"Designated Survivor", anyone? When I saw the reveal in Designated Survivor, the first thing I thought was Jericho Syndrome. It's the damned Jericho show all over again. Or Seven Days in May, or or or. In the imagination of Hollywood, right wing American militarists are always lurking in the shadows, ready to seize power under the cloak of chaos the militarists create themselves. Ugh.

America nuked itself? Really? Ugh.

Just wanted to thank all that took part in this thread so far. I had heard about Jericho a while back but didnt really try to find a way to catch up on it. Now the wife and I are on the binge with netflix and the best part is her gears are turning now more than ever.
