Tuesday 24 Wrap Up – 4 PM – 5 PM

Time to clock out. Most of us would be ending our day about now, it’s 5 PM. Next thing most of us would be fighting is traffic. But not Jack Bauer (was he even in this episode??) – nope – he’s not only facing his arch-enemy (nope, not common sense or polyps on the throat) President Logan. That’s like me facing that jackass at that client that I don’t like having to deal with…. (for the sake of my job, I’ll leave that name blank). Damn I’m glad I’m not Jack Bauer.

Are there any surprises in 24 anymore? More after the jump….

First things first – OF COURSE THE TERRORISTS ARE WINNING. Look at the state of CTU.

For God’s sake – stop being so touch-feely – and get some shit done. I could have built, set off and built another nuke inside CTU the way these boneheads are running things. Chloe – stop being a character, stop trying to add a third dimension – just go back to your flat character breaking SIP protocols and firewalls and the occassional break out of emotion. Please? Pretty please?

And I think this is a first on TV – they gave out a non-555 number. Pretty impressive.

I also hate the episodes where at the end, they say it’s going to take 45 minutes to get somewhere. That means the first 20 minutes next week is going to be spent in a car – quiet time between Jack and Logan. Great. Just what we all were looking forward to. Listen – the importance of the highlighted passages in the Bible? Who knows. If it means Jack gets to put a bullet in his head – awesome. I don’t like the guy – never did – won’t shed a tear if he dies. We all know he won’t – but one can dream.

And hey – writers of 24 – we all saw Jack break into the Chinese consulate. Just because he gets invited to a consulate doesn’t change the fact that he doesn’t belong there…. At the end of this season – will Jack get kidnapped by the Russians? I REALLY hope not..

And another Presidential assassination..yawwwwnnnn. I’ve seen too many of those in recent years. Ok. Last year. But still – how many times can we kill a black president? Two? Are there any more brothers? Could we squeeze another one in there? And what about the sister? 227 – what happened to you and the guy from the Matrix? Where’d they run off to? And Karen? Shouldn’t she be in LA by now?

That’s it! That’s what’s going to happen – she’s going to show up, and whip CTU back into shape! One can hope at least.

And the only thing I could think is, “I bet Fish from Ally McBeal wishes he were just an inch taller… then he could have reached that pipe a lot sooner.”

Any rules? Yes – perhaps the most important: Rule #98230 of 24

If you are in a high security location – and someone brings in a suitcase, and it looks like it’s just filled with highlighters and notebooks and pens and note recorders – it’s NOT! That stuff will be used to make a bomb – and the guy bringing it in is MAKING the bomb – be a hero, and pull him over and arrest him!

Anything else? Morris is an alcoholic. Nadia is a double agent. The Russians are bad guys. Jack’s dad will be dead by 6 AM. And oh yeah – the new iPhone commercial is awesome.

I’m switching to Cingular AT&T.
