A Monster Fan Interview: Kricka
Kricka is our focus today. It would be difficult to find anyone more dedicated, loyal, and hard-working. She is a team player and supportive of all who work for Jericho. Meet Kricka.
1. When did you start watching Jericho?
I am an avid television watcher, so I follow the new season every year very closely. Jericho was one of the few new shows in 2006 that intrigued me, so I tuned in right from the start.
2. What is most appealing to you about the show?
Jericho feeds into the fear/fascination I had growing up in the 80's of survival of a nuclear war. The Cold War was still kicking, and movies like Red Dawn and The Day After horrified me, but also made me wonder what I would do in similar situations. So the premise was tailor made for a mind like mine. But the small town dynamic is what really kept me coming back to the show. I spent the first 23 years of my life living in small towns, and even though I currently reside in a big city, I am still a small town girl at heart. I like seeing a positive, complex and intelligent portrayal of people who choose to live in that world.
3. What would you like to see in Season 2?
More Heather!! Hee... I would also like to see what is going on outside of Jericho. In the rest of the country, in the rest of the world. Also, some more about Hawkins, because like Jake, I have taken what we have learned with a grain of salt. Even though I love the character, I still don't totally believe everything he's told 'us'.
4. Who is your favorite character and why?
This is a hard one, because I hate picking favorites. If I lived in Jericho, I would hope I was friends with Jake, Heather, Stanley & Mimi. I probably would have babysat for Bonnie. They all seem like the kind of people I would like to spend time with.
5. Would you join a Jericho Fan Club? Why or why not?
I have only belonged to one Fan Club my whole life, and I only belong because I get first dibs for concert tickets. I do not like to join anything. So I don't know how I feel about a Jericho Fan Club. My gut instinct is that I probably wouldn't, but I reserve the right to change my mind!
You can add a comment if you like.
The amazing thing I found out about Jericho during the Nuts Campaign, is the broad range of people that this show appeals to. I am a single, childless gal, so it never occurred to me that whole families were sitting down to watch. Then I heard there were college kids getting together in their dorms to watch. Non-TV watching, intellectual types like my Aunt were watching (she's the one who indoctrinated me into the Star Trek world back in the 70's). Then, turns out there is a whole international audience for Jericho. So it wasn't just my group of city-livin', single friends watching. And that, made me love the show even more. The fact that a simple hour of television could bring together so many different types of people is an amazing feat, in my opinion, and I am so happy we get another shot at keeping it around for a good long time.
Thank you Kricka!!!
