Jeremiah the T.V. Series

So I just finished watching Jeremiah. If you weren’t aware of this show back when it aired (2002-2004), it’s a post-apocalyptic series starring Luke Perry (yes Dylan from 90210 1.0) and Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Theo Huxtable!). I love a good dystopian story and they are hard to come by.

Jeremiah was written and created by J Michael Straczynski, better known for creating Babylon 5. Jeremiah wasn’t the greatest show but it also wasn’t horrible. When I first heard about Jeremiah I had thought it was just a rip off of Jericho but I didn’t realize at the time that Jeremiah was aired 4 years sooner. The story tells us of a world where 6 billion people died (virtually everyone except for children that had not yet hit puberty) caused from a plague they call “the Big Death.” The series sticks to just the continental U.S.A. and focuses on the people trying to rebuild a country and the obstacles they face.

One thing that irked me was the lack of cars everywhere. With over 100 million cars in the USA, if 90% of the population were wiped out, I would have expected to see many more abandoned cars everywhere. I won’t hold this against Jeremiah too much though, I could come up with explanations to the lack of cars much easier than I could explaining why every alien and human from another world is able to speak English on StarGate…or why those humans have flashlights and walkie talkies that look just like ours.

The series made it through 2 seasons (35 Episodes total). Unfortunately JMS and MGM did not work well together and JMS left the show. Luckily they decided to cancel the series as opposed to bringing on new writers. Without spoiling, I will say that the series does end without one of those horrible cliffhangers and whether the ending was a happy one is open to interpretation.

Jeremiah was originally based on a Belgian comic book series by Hermann Huppen first written in 1979 but is still written today. You can find the comics fairly inexpensively on eBay for $5-20 each.

What I do find surprising is that although you can find the complete first season on DVD on eBay for under $10, the second season is priced on eBay, Amazon.com and Walmart.com for over $50! I guess the first season’s sales were not as stellar and production on season two DVDs was much less. Best Buy has season one available but doesn’t even offer season two. So if you find an inexpensive copy of season two, be sure to buy it.

Pippin: A Game Console You Probably Never Heard About

It’s called the Pippin. Originally developed by Apple to be an early type of media center. Bandai licensed the platform in 1994 and called it Bandai Pippin @World player. Just 42,000 units were sold, at a cost of $599 each, before the console was discontinued in 1997. Katz Media Productions made 5,000 consoles in Ireland for European distribution. They called their verion the KMP 2000 and is considered the rarest of the Pippin models. PC World Magazine gave the Pippin 22nd place in it’s list of 25 worst tech products of all time.

The cool thing about the games is that they will place on the older Macs of that era. So if you wanted to play Gundam Tactics or tinker with the Dragonball Z Anime Designer, you can do it on an old computer as opposed to trying to obtain of the the original Pippin systems.

You can sometimes find the console and games on eBay. Here’s a few currently available:
