I loved this tv show. Solid drama in the background of the nuclear apocalypse. Still, it has a number of illogicalities. For example, not all of Kansas has cold winters; in southern Kansas winters are generally mild and the climate there is very similar to that of California. So it's unclear to me why part of Jericho residents decided to go to Arizona during the winter when southern Kansas is much warmer than north-east or northern Kansas. There was no need to go to Arizona to warm up.
Another illogicality is the depiction of the nuclear cataclysm in the series. There is no space in America that would not feel the effects of radiation if that country were hit by 20 nuclear bombs as shown in the series. It's almost unrealistic to watch Jericho residents eat food and drink water that would certainly be contaminated with some dose of radiation.
Still, the series is quite solid... Nevertheless, anyone who wants to watch a real movie about nuclear cataclysm should watch "The Day After", which was shot in 1983. The best movie on this topic ...
