"Jeremiah" on SciFi

SciFi bailed on "Charlie Jade" after two episodes. Brilliant move for a show with a reputation for building slowly.

They'll probably screw this up too, but for now, JMS's "Jeremiah" is airing on Thursday nights. It's a great story about a plague that kills everyone on Earth over the age of 13 or so.

The show takes place about 15 years after the plague has supposedly burned itself out. "Jeremiah" stars Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

It ran for two seasons on Showtime and was partly done in by the usual infighting between JMS and the production company (MGM). Funny how the folks who run the Stargate franchise have managed to get along with the suits at MGM for over ten years but JMS managed to blow it up almost immediately. Funny how he also wasn't able to work with TNT or the B5 Movie folks. Something tells me the problem isn't THEM.

Anyways, "Jeremiah" is a great tale, well-told. The two leads are immensely likable. The lighting, pacing and music are great. Catch it while you can.
