Tuesday 24 Wrap Up – 10 AM – 11 AM

Wow. Wow wow wow. Did you know James Cromwell was Kiefer’s dad? I think it would have been cooler had they gottent the guy from Lost Boys to play Kiefer’s dad. I would have stood up, bought a ticket to Hollywood and hugged someone.

But alas, I’ll take the Senator from Species 2

What other surprises? What’s making this season more like The O.C. and less like 24? After the jump.

First off – I think it’s best to just work from the beginning of the episode, and work our way through it, okay? Good.

First off – Chloe – you may think you’re all hot now, fancy clothes, done hair, HD makeup and everything, but you know what, you’re still a geek. Be a geek. Don’t get serious on us, and ask, “Why does everyone around me die?” No one wants to hear it. Get off that horse, and start telling us your throwing schematics on someone’s B-screen, and you had to port the IP blanket over the ports for firewall intrusion and netscape blocking.

Or something like that. Keep it technical – you’re a technical hottie, not a hottie. There’s a difference. You’re chubby.

And now, I understand that a chopper might accidentally fall on a house. And I understand you might be running around looking for someone to help you get your buddy out. And I understand that the door might be “jammed” shut, and you’ll need to pry it open. But, what I don’t understand is what house in America has BOTH a DishTV satellite AND an old analog antenna for catching signal OTA??? C’mon. Jack, you may be cool, but you are no MacGyver. I ring the bell on that shit right now.

Ok. Brenda from 227. Why are you worried about Harry Lennix not being able to “act” like a terrorist? I think we could all “act” like a terrorist if we had to. Did you not see Matrix 2 or 3? He’s a pretty good actor. I’m sure he can fool a couple of terrorists being held at an elementary school.

And that brings me to my final statement about last night’s episode…. TOO MUCH FAMILY. Anyone else notice that now everyone in this show is somehow related to everyone else?? Now granted, on One Tree Hill, you don’t see anyone throwing a plastic bag over anyone else’s face… but still. Let’s start at the top. Jack comes from an affluent family. Affluent enough to have a butler named “Sam” who has been there at least 9 years (that was the last time Jack talked to his dad). On top of that, Jack has a brother… A BROTHER? Another Bauer? Is this who the series is going to go to after Jack dies this season (you heard it here first. Jack will die.).

Oh wait – WHAT?! You’re telling me Bluetooth guy from last season is Jack’s BROTHER? The one who set him up to have him killed? The one who wanted nothing more than the destruction of his own brother? Wow. Talk about sibling rivalry. I mean, now we’re getting into Oedipus-Romulus-Remus-Mythological proportions here. Is there no end to what a son will do for his father’s love?

AND on TOP of that – it looks like younger brother Gray hooked up with Jack’s leftovers. The wife has/had a thing for Jack? And now that you mention it…. doesn’t the soon look a little too much like a little Jack, and NOT a little Gray??? Last season, we had writer’s from Lifetime doing the whole old people in love storylines. Now, we have to worry about cast-offs of Melrose Place trying to work their way back into the business.

I don’t know – not enough attention was spent trying to track down 4 Suitcase Nukes, and too much time was spent with Jack trying to get everyone together for a family reunion. C’mon people. I know it’s cool to see Jack put a plastic bag over his bro’s head…. but I want to see someone tracking down these terrorists…

Oh yeah, and Curtis is dead.
