Product Description

A stunning sci-fi epic that re-envisions the future of mankind, this top-rated, action-packed original series is "intriguing" (Associated Press), "fascinating" (Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel) and "deep and intense" (Science Fiction Weekly)! Luke Perry ("Beverly Hills 90210," "Oz") stars as Jeremiah, one of the many young survivors of the "Big Death" that claimed the lives of every adult in the world 15 years ago. Now forging his way through a bleak wilderness fraught with danger and conspiracy, Jeremiah and his most trusted friend, Kurdy (Malcolm-Jamal Warner), are plunged into thrilling adventures that test every facet of their humanity…and ultimately the fate of the human race itself!

I never watched this show before I bought the DVD's. I know, a big gamble, but boy, it's been worth it! Jeremiah is a superb mix of harsh reality, character driven plot, great writing and fine acting that quietly immerses you into their world. And it doesn't hype its' warning message, "This may be our future". Disregard any review that's comparing this to other works. It stands alone. Unfortunately, it seems that the shows future is in jeopardy. Only the Good Die Young!

I finally broke down and bought season 1 on DVD, I was waiting for Season 2 to be released, but gave up.
I am not sure if MGM plans on releasing the second season since it has now been 3 years since the release of season 1.
DVD Release Date: January 20, 2004.
It makes it a little hard to run out and buy the first season of a TV series, when your not sure if others seasons will ever be released.
P.S. This is a great series, well worth buying, even if you never get the next season.

I submitted the earlier part of this review in 2007 originally.
It now appears that will be selling the 2nd season using a manufactured on demand method. It is currently set to be released Mar 3, 2010.
So if you haven't already downloaded season 2, you maybe interested in picking up season 2 using this method.
It only took MGM 6 years, great job MGM, nice to know the consumer is important.

Jeremiah's world is one where self-interest comes all too often before simple human kindness, and hope is both rare and dangerous. Set in the not-too-distant future, "Jeremiah" is the the story of a world decimated by a mysterious virus that killed (almost) everyone above the "age of innocence."
The story picks up fifteen years after the end of the Big Death, and thrusts the viewer into a world in which every child grew up an orphan, without guidance, or constraint; a world where violence is a constant threat.
At it's worst, "Jeremiah" is occasionally clunky (note, for instance, the episode "Ring of Truth"). At it's prime, however, the show is excellent: exciting, thoughtful, violent, humourous, and heartbreaking in turn.
While there is an overall arc, my favourite episodes are those which deal with how this massive tragedy played out on the personal scale. I was fascinated by the way in which a world full of children grew into adulthood with nothing and no one to guide them but their memories, and the remnants of the old world. If characters arcs and world-building are what attract you to a show, "Jeremiah" provides plenty to mull over. When dealing with issues of gender, religion, and race, "Jeremiah" sometimes comes close to being preachy, but never completely crosses the line.
The show can sometimes be frustrating as it seems problems are often solved through pure, dumb luck. In the same vein, Jeremiah and Kurdy often find themselves in trouble due to the same--and by all too often blundering into situations where caution and diplomacy are warranted. That said, however, I enjoy Jeremiah and Kurdy's partnership enough that watching them get in and out of trouble isn't much of a hardship.

As an ardent fan of J. Michael Straczynski's Babylon 5, I was eager to dig in to this series. I'm also a "Post-Holocaust" genre enthusiast, always looking for better examples of this poorly-treated area of Science Fiction.
I normally don't bother to write 3-star reviews, but Jeremiah was a mixed bag that demanded comment. While composed of excellent story-telling and a rich background, the series suffers from too many "Duh, Ralph!" moments. I've never seen on screen a more realistic and vibrant "End of the World" setting, nor such a fine set of lead and character actors for same.
Yet the writing quality and direction fails to match. It's never really explained, for example, why Vahalla Sector doesn't shut-down and/or annex Thunder Mountain, which is run with a charming idealistic ineptness. Early on, it's clear that Vahalla Sector is aware of Thunder Mountain's current operations, structure, strategic value, and undisciplined security. They could have seized it in 15 minutes, but don't. Instead, they're checked in a couple of unconvincing Star-Trek-Next-Generation-like moves taken by Thunder Mountain. When they finally take decisive action, you're left wondering why Vahalla Sector didn't act 6 months earlier.
Also jarring are the too-often times that Jeremiah & Kurdy -- otherwise written and acted intelligently -- are bushwacked because they won't carry firearms. Yes, yes, I understand the pacifistic motivations (though the two never hesitate to snag weapons from the baddies and plink away). But show me why the pair weren't killed and left in a ditch after their first couple of captures.
The action scenes are hit-and-miss, ranging from gripping & visceral down to "A-Team" in quality.

The world ends not with a bang but a virus. The "Big Death" has wiped out 6 billion people made up of teenagers and adults and left a world full of orphaned children. Jeremiah is one of these orphaned children trying to find his way in a post-apocalyptic world created from the memory of a dead world. Jeremiah's goal in his new world and new life is to help as many people along the way as he can. His other goal is to find the mysterious "Valhalla Sector" that his father told him about before he died. Somehow it is tied into the tragedy of the past and the fate of the future.
J. Michael Strazyncski's latest series written and developed for Showtime is adapted from Herman Huppen's comic book of the same name. While the scope of "Jeremiah" is much smaller than "Babylon 5", the stories are just as well told and focus more on character than technology. Luke Perry as the title character provides a fresh spin on a character that could easily have fallen into cliche. Malcolm-Jamal Warner provides balance for Perry's altruistic attempt to try and right the wrongs of the world. The two have chemistry on screen and make even the weakest episodes interesting.
While "Jeremiah" has a way to go before it can follow in the rather large footsteps of "Babylon 5" and "Crusade", it's off to a promising start. Stracyznski wrote the pilot as well as roughly half 19 episodes included in this six disc first season boxed set. While the writing does occasionally fail to deliver, the series provides interesting and powerful entertainment as this new venue allows Stracyznski to tackle a number of subjects he wasn't able to with the broad canvas of "Babylon 5". One of the weaknesses of the first couple of episodes is the villain Theo.
