Tuesday 24 Wrap-Up: Some 60 Minutes

Renee "Cutie" WalkerOk – I have absolutely dropped my desire to continue writing about this show. Same thing, week after week. You would think after 6 days of this shit, nothing would surprise Jack. You would also think that he would have picked up a “normal” speaking voice so that everything wasn’t a whisper or a scream. *sigh* Some people never learn.

However. Last night’s episode brought about 1 truly excellent moment that Jack had not done before. In all the killings, in all the escapes, in all the fights – he had never used a screwdriver. After plunging a screwdriver into the bad guy’s chest, then telling him he’s bleeding profusely, and that if he wants to be saved, yadda yadda yadda – the guy declines the offer (presumably because if he told Jack the information he wanted to know he’d be dead, yadda yadda yadda). So the guy dies – THEN Jack calls Tony (yay) and pulls the screwdriver out of the guy’s chest, and uses it to hotwire a truck to hightail it out of there.

Now that’s class. That’s style. That’s a room full of writers going, “Why the fuck not.” And it’s for that moment alone that I will continue to watch. Oh, and just kill Janeane Garofalo. Seriously. I always kinda thought she was a bad actress – but this is like spitting in my face. And why the pic of Renee Walker? Because I still think she’s cute.
