Originally, Jericho is supposed to be in northwest Kansas approximately where Hill City is located in Graham County. When the mayor and other men are trying to decide who should go what direction to see what has happened elsewhere, a deputy is standing in front of a map on a wall. The map is a blow up of Ness County and Jericho is located where Ness City should be in southwest Kansas. To the north of Jericho there is a clear image of an airport symbol, it says "Ness City Municipal Airport" when it should be Jericho. See more »

LOVE and Miss Jericho !!
18 December 2018 | by jseph1234-262-617488See all my reviews

I KNEW I was going to love this show from the Pre-season trailer for it in 2006. I EAGERLY awaited the premiere and CBS is CRAZY for not allowing Netflix to purchase this Show and continue it after they cancelled it on the ADORING fans of Jericho in 2008!
