So what do you think about this then?
That question is to those of you who have been watching it.
Quite frankly I think its scary in one sense. Is this going to be like the Lone Gunman? I sure hope not. It would seem, having read, listened to and watched various things from this tracker that this was planned a very long time ago, and now we have the series to help ease us into disaster.
I find it a bit odd that people havent mentioned this before. Is it that unpopular a show? I know I heard talk of it being 'pulled' after the first season due to lack of audience figures. Are Americans too scared to watch it? Are they being controlled by fear? Is this program some kind of a test to see how switched onto the truth people are?
For those who havent seen it here is a VERY breif outline of the story...
America is nuked in various places, its set in one town thats not too badly affected.....The government is behind it! Yeah!!! Thats what I said, and yet it hardly gets mentioned on here!
Your thoughts would interest me.

Yeah thats right, the CIA are the good guys and the Department of homeland security are the bad guys.

Jake and Jimmy break into Robert Hawkins' house, where they discover a slew of fake IDs that cast doubts about the story Hawkins told when he and his family arrived in Jericho. Jake holds Hawkins hostage at gunpoint, handcuffs him, and demands the truth about his involvement with the attacks on the U.S. while Jimmy waits outside for Jake.
Hawkins explains to Jake the story behind the attacks. He says he is or was part of a CIA team assembled to recover a stolen shipment of 25 Russian nuclear warheads. The warheads were stolen several years earlier and converted into bombs. This was done by what Hawkins describes as a variety of extremist groups, including "domestic militia, anarchists, and religious fanatics." The groups involved, according to Hawkins, would never have worked together except for one purpose: to take down the federal government of the United States.
During the flashback to when Robert was "recruited out of retirement", it was shown that a man named Victor was the person that made contact with Robert. This is the same man from "Walls of Jericho" that died of radiation poisoning. It seems that both Robert and Victor worked together in the C.I.A.
Hawkins tells Jake that he left his family and went undercover with Sarah as his handler, as part of Project Red Bell (mentioned in the opening Morse Code). He says he spent time in prison in an effort to become part of the group. Hawkins' job with the group was to provide them with fake IDs. He also proves his "loyalty" by killing an FBI informant who was about to disclose Hawkins' true identity. Before he has to kill the informant, Hawkins tells those in charge of the task force that he and Sarah could likely get their hands on a third or half of the bombs. Sarah pushes for more time so they can try to get to all of them. She is seen having a private conversation with the head of the government group, a tall, bald man with a cane.
The terrorists learn that the government has contacts in their group and move up the time of the attack. Hawkins is able to contact the CIA with license plates of some of the trucks, and they stop the bomb or bombs destined for New York City. Jake is skeptical about all of this until Hawkins shows him a map made by the Department of Defense showing death and fallout calculations for an attack on 20 American cities. Jericho was chosen as the rally point for the task force if the mission failed because it was away from any fallout zone and has access to an uncontaminated water table, a large salt mine, and lots of farms. He is further convinced when Hawkins shows him the bomb, destined for Columbus, Ohio, now buried under Hawkins' tool shed.
Jake does not tell Jimmy the truth but says that Hawkins can be trusted and that he is FBI. At the end of the episode, Hawkins puts more of the puzzle together, figuring out that the man apparently in charge of the CIA task force, Thomas Valente of the Department of Homeland Security's Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, was also the "boss" that tried to buy the "package" from him in the previous episode. He is also shown in the end to be smiling at Sarah Mason during a conversation possibly revealing Sarah's involvement in the terrorist group.

Season 2 ep 2
Emily and Eric complain to Grey Anderson about the new history textbooks (issued by the new government), regarding how they practically re-write American history, calling the time after World War II the Fall of the First Republic. Gray is not that concerned...
This show is far too truthful to not be complete propaganda

Damn Im late on this.... --minimal spoilage alert--
Propaganda or not...the show was great. Somehow its possible propaganda but if you want my opinion, the writer or writers were trying to warn people. It hits too close to home. Everything from government/corporate sponsored False Flags, cover-ups, blackwater-like mercinaries, end of the Constitution, and a new American Civil War...shit was pretty crazy for a network TV show.
I just finished watching the whole thing the other day (Seasons 1 & 2), and Im pissed they didnt keep it going, but Im not surprised.
I think they cancelled the 1st season for a reason....for other reasons than just lack of ratings. The show was a good representation of what would happen to a small town in the middle of the country after such a catastophic attack. As well as the conspiratorial views expressed in the show and the parallels to 9-11. (Its continually referred to as "the September attacks" by characters on the show). The second season, a measly short 7 episodes was brought back only after a fan revolt of sorts.
Season 1 was 22 episodes, and Season 2 was 7 episodes.
I hear the fans are still holding out for Sci-Fi to pick up the series for a 3rd but I doubt that will happen.
This show had it all though, and the characters are believable. I like the way they show a community of people coming together to help each other, work together, even fight together during a time of crisis. Its started off slow but picks up for a good storyline.
If you havent seen it, I definately recommend it.
Season 1 was on fancast, then it was taken down , now because of fan's demands...episodes are being added back up again, here:

I watched the pilot for this and I don't know it just did not capture my attention enough. I should have giving it a chance.

I know...its kinda slow starting but it does get better, imo. I was surprised that it was as good as it was after getting into it.

ED: Just another example movies and entretainment from
the Illuminati living off their ill gotten gains with even more
