Jericho Restoration Update
It has now been 11 weeks since publication of the Jericho graphic novel. We've stayed on the Amazon bestseller lists and made the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller list last week!
Currently Jericho is:
#1 on the Amazon Science Fiction Graphic Novel Bestseller List
#5 on the Amazon Graphic Novel Bestseller List
As many of you are aware, Netflix is interested in gaining customers by making/purchasing original series and bringing back canceled shows. Ranger Beebull asked how can we make Netflix aware of the Jericho fans. I thought about it and decided to make October the "Watch Jericho on Netflix" month. For those who do not have Netflix, they have a 30 day free trial, so all Rangers can participate. Go here to sign up: <<https://www.netflix.com/Default?loms=abcd>>
Start watching Jericho on Netflix (either via streaming or DVD rental) and let's bump up the views on Netflix!!!
Let's do it Rangers,
Gwen (AKA Ratkeeper)
Thank you to the Rangers who have continued to write reviews on Amazon:

A HUGE thank you to ALL the Rangers who have continued to promote and buy the graphic novel. Making the New York Times Bestseller list is a pinnacle and you should all be proud of "all these things that I've done".
Offcial Jericho Facebook Page
Two previous pages (Jericho Community Page and Jericho TV Show Fan Page) have been combined into the new OFFICIAL Jericho Page: <<http://www.facebook.com/JerichoTV>>
The page now has over 122,000 fans. This is an active page with an admin making posts; I suspect that someone close to the show is the admin.
In Honor of Jericho's Five Year Anniversary
Ode to Jericho by John Boia ( jjb_md)
To the tune of "Against the Wind" by Bob Seger.
It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Heather was lovely, she was the queen of Wednesday night,
There in the darkness watchin' Jericho, our show.
And the secrets that we shared,
The bombs that we moved,
Caught our attention like nothing before,
Wonderin' if the rumors would ever be proved.
And I remember what she said to Jake,
How she warned him about "giant ants"
I remember how she kissed him, that one night,
Leaving us 'shippers enthralled with romance.
A Kansas town.
We were livin' in that little town
Called Jericho, we were there in
That Kansas town.
Well the show was not renewed,
And I found myself online,
Surrounded by strangers I came to call friends,
Begging the network for just some more time.
And I guess I found my place,
There were oh so many fans.
I was living to keep that 'Cho still alive,
Rallying with others who had the same plans.
Sending 20 tons of nuts to CBS New York,
We caused network execs to cave in.
I began to find myself yearning
Waiting to see Jake and Heather again...
That Kansas town,
We had saved that dear Kansas town.
United and strong, we got more of
That Kansas town.
Well that second season was very short,
And the ratings just weren't there.
Once more, we got cancelled.
Tried our best but it just wasn't fair.
That Kansas town,
It'll always be our little town.
Oh, Jericho, you will always be
Our little town.
Well I'm older now and still watching...
I'm still watchin'...
Let the Rangers ride!
(They'll be ridin' to Jericho.)
