If you don't have Mercury service, it's available to fuss with on the latest Civ IV Beyond the Sword Demo. So here is this stuff:

  • Some Jericho season 2 spoilers if you're interested. From AICN:

    * The Cheyenne government’s army breaks up the fighting between Jericho and New Bern, but we can still look forward to some postwar scores being settled secretly.

    * Cheyenne will work to bring water and power back to Jericho.

    * Titus Welliver, who played Col. Robert Hoffman in the first season finale, was unavailable to reprise the role for the new season.

    * Most of 2.1 takes place a good while after all the battle with new Bern.

    * Stanley and Mimi get engaged.

    * Rob Hawkins and Jake Green go on a mission to save the world.

    * Sprague Grayden will be back as schoolteacher/fix-it girl Heather Lisinski.

    * Gerald McRaney is not expected to appear in any flashbacks during the seven hours.

    * The seven hours begin shooting Monday and should be wrapped by September.

    * Heather will return to Jericho find Jake and Emily coupled up.

    * Heather will get another potential romantic interest, but there will still be some "pull" between Heather and Jake.

    * Had the show received a bigger second-season order, a big part of the action would have been set in New York. As it is, the stories will again be largely confined to the title municipality.

    This would have been a pretty elaborate ploy to make you click on a Harry Potter spoiler.
