Tuesday 24 Wrap Up – 5 PM – 6 PM

First, before I say anything else – Jean Smart is back next week ladies and gentlemen! And, on top of that, she’s with Aaron. Bauhm Chaka-Bauhm-Bauhm (anyone have any idea how to do sexy 70s porno music? I don’t know if that does it. But you know what I’m talking about…. Old people sex….) Sorry, but with the pace of things, I’m actually excited about seeing the Designing Woman again…

Enough about that – let’s get back to what makes 24, 24… Polictical Intrigue, Impossible Missions and almost dead Presidents.

Enough about that – let’s get back to what makes 24, 24… Polictical Intrigue, Impossible Missions and almost dead Presidents. Oh yeah – and really good TV commercials.

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about! I was talking with a good friend on Saturday night, and we were trying to figure out why 24 had been losing it’s steam this season. We decided it had to do with Chloe. No one cares about the character. She’s background noise. She’s the chick Jack calls when he’s in trouble… Isn’t that enough of a character? I mean really – if I had Chloe’s job, I would totally put on my tombstone

Here Lies Stephen Schmidt – He’s The One Who Helped JACK BAUER. No Shit.

But I guess that’s me, and Chloe’s contract said she needed “depth.”

Fuck depth, gimme Jack – oh, I don’t know – busting into consulat- YEAH BABY! If the rest of the season (12 hours to go people!) is as good and keep getting better – we’re off to a rocking good second half!

My big question – What in holy hell is Karen STILL doing at the airport?? Didn’t she request to leave like – 6 hours ago?? And c’mon Sprint – did you really need that 47 seconds of “watching TV”?? Isn’t having the guy from Office Space enough? Do you really need Karen Hughes watching her cell phone in an airport… where there are normally TVs? And again, I ask, What in holy hell is Karen STILL doing at the airport?? Sorry. I just can’t get over the fact that she couldn’t scare up ANY flight – seeing as how she was some sort of secretary or something?

I know I usually harp on Jack about retiring… But do you think Bill at this point is just saying to himself,

I’m getting to old for this shit.

This show goes to it’s best measures to test the mettle of an individual. After each day like this, do you think everyone in CTU goes in and says,

I think it’s time for a raise. Let’s say…. 35% – call it cost of living. America living.

BOOM! That’s right.

OH – and I’m totally watching Drive when it comes on. I’m totally into that.

If I haven’t said it before – I dug this episode. I like Jack storming into a consulate. I like Jack using a cigar cutter to rip off a guys finger. I like Jack using the butt end of a gun to pistol whip that SAME guy’s face. And I like Jack covincing a Russian guard to trust him in under 22 seconds. And that brings in Rule #5644560 of 24

If you are ever caught by Russian – or any foreign – gurads, and the lock you in a room, simply make up a story that makes that guys boss into a secret, backstabbing, double-agent. The guard will fall for it, and you will probably get out soon, and back home in time for dinner. Every peon wants to think his boss is an idiot.

It works for Jack, so it’ll work.

And Logan…. I still don’t know what to think about the Reformed Catholic. He bugs me. I can’t hate him, but he creeps me out in an “uncle who touched me and now I’m repressing those emotions until I’m much older and take it out on homeless guys sleeping on Lower Wacker” kinda way. Know what I mean?

Oh yeah – and everyone – remember Curtis? I do.

I miss him.
