Jeremiah: The First Season (2002)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
05.11.08

Jeremiah: The First Season (2002) The premise of this made-for-cable series is that a virus killed everyone over the age of puberty, leaving the world in the hands of children, who had to fend for themselves for the past fifteen years, sort of like a massive version of LORD OF THE FLIES. Now, there are various towns and tribes competing against each other and some factions want to restore civilization. Jeremiah (Luke Perry) travels across the country, looking for a place called Valhalla Sector, a place where he knew where his father had gone. His father was somehow involved with the government and perhaps the creation of that virus. On one of these leads he goes to a town and meets some people he thinks are from Valhalla Sector but they turn out to be from a different place, "Thunder Mountain", which still has a lot of technology. In the hour and a half premiere episode Jeremiah meets Kurdy (Malcolm Jamal-Warner), who tries to still his food, and they eventually become friends after their first adventure. The two also end up working with the people at Thunder Mountain, exploring the outside world and reporting information back to the hidden group. Although Luke Perry is good in the part he's the oldest looking 27 year old I've ever seen. The most interesting characters are Marcus Alexander (Peter Stebbings), the leader of "Thunder Mountain" and Theo (Kimberly Hawthorne), the sociopathic leader of a nearby town, who is as hilarious as she is evil. There's also Erin (Ingrid Kavelaars, CODENAME: ETERNITY), who Jeremiah starts having a "thing" for--and there's an episode where he sleeps with her identical twin--or was it her? Other memorable episodes feature Michael Rooker (HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER) as a member of Valhalla Sector (and an adult who wasn't killed in the plague) and Jason Priestley as the psycho leader of a military group who has a cache of bombs ready to fire on the nearby towns.

There's also a mystical element that runs throughout the season, such as a lot of the little kids in the various, isolated towns having the same beliefs about good and evil.

Several actors appear who are in the recent incarnation of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (Kandyse McClure, Tricia Helfer, et cetera) as well as many actors seen on the show ANDROMEDA, which I suppose has to do with the series being shot in Canada.

Overall, this is a good series, the writing and characters consistent. If you like "end of the world" scenarios you'll dig this show.
