Where does the good go

24 BLOGGING

24 BLOGGING

Fox News did a poll, a few weeks ago, about whether 24 could survive if Jack were killed off. I think last night’s episode definitively answers that question in the negative.

There was very little Jack — until the end– and so Dawn had very little interest — until the end.

My favorite part was when Jack goes “how could I be so stupid?!” because I too was thinking the very same thing and was on the verge of losing some respect for our intrepid hero — but his own self-awareness saves his place in my pantheon of great TV action heroes.

Looks like cougar girl is back next week. I’ll be sure to have my antacids on hand.

    This season is pretty much same old same old. I really had high hopes at the end of last season, that the show would take a different direction, with Jack on the lam. Kind of like a Fugitive storyline (the tv show, not the movie Fugitive), without all that CTU interoffice conflict bullsht. Jack would meet different people in distress each week and do good deeds, all the while managing to stay one step ahead of the marshal, and the Chinese. Every now and then he’d end up in bed with some double-agent who betrays him. That or a roller-skating babe. (No, that would be too much like CHiPs.) But instead we get more incompetent CTU leaders, more unfulfilled sexual tension between Edgar and Chloe (just do it already) and more annoying weaselly president Logan (whoshoul have gotten the Nixon part instead of Anthony Hopkins. Am I right, or am I right about that?).

    YES! everytime I see him, I see Nixon. But i think Nixon had more balls than Logan and maybe the actor couldn’t bring that across in his audition.
