A Monster Fan Interview: Maybei
Just as Jericho has its characters the Jericho fandom has maybei(Vicki). Maybei is almost larger than life. If any project needs help she'll be there. She's smart, supportive, fun, and generous with her time and knowledge. She tries to make every day a Jericho day by commenting, Digging, and planning. Maybei is one of a kind and I'm so glad she is a Jericho Ranger.
1. What attracted you to Jericho?
I like end of the world stories (a fav book is The Stand) and I love spy stories (author and British spy master John LeCarre is a fav), so Jericho fit the bill on both counts. But what kept me coming back was the characters, the people of Jericho.
2. What is your favorite episode/character and why?
I love A.K.A. and seeing more of the Hawkins back story - how he came to Jericho and why. I also really enjoyed Black Jack because it showed more of what was happening in the outside world. And of course - Why We Fight. It's hard to pick just one - all are good!
One of my favorite characters (if you don't count Hawkins, which is a given with me) is Mimi. I love seeing her grow from a city girl to learning what it takes to survive.
3. What is your favorite line from the show?
Johnston Green: I am about to go to war with New Bern, Kansas, the home of the nearest CostCo. Today is already just about as weird as I can handle.
4. If I had never watched Jericho what would you say to urge me to watch?
If you love a good story rich with many interesting characters from all walks of life - and you enjoy a little humor - if you like on the edge of your seat action - if you like a little eye candy - if you want a show that keeps you coming back for more, watch Jericho!!
5. Anything else you'd like to add about yourself or Jericho can go here.
I have been really encouraged that CBS is listening to the fans and starting to reach out to us with more great content on the site! Personally, I would love more pictures of the stars, sets and behind the scenes footage. I would love for them to have a feedback on Fan Central where fans could submit news about their activities. And I am really hoping to see the stars on some talk shows and giving more interviews about Jericho. PIMP it CBS!!!
I'd like to say what a pleasure it has been meeting the fans of Jericho, from CBS which is our home base - to all of the different boards out there!
Each and every one of us helped to Save Jericho and it is important to keep the Spirit of Jericho alive and well and to continue to promote our favorite show to new fans!
