"24" tonight. They just keep giving great material to work with (or just make me want to throw something at the TV). Major spoilers to follow.
***SPOILERS, SPOILERS, SPOILERS!!!***DO NOT CONTINUE READING UNLESS YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN TONIGHT'S EPISODE OR YOU DON'T CARE. IN WHICH CASE, WHY ARE YOU EVEN READING THIS?****
(this is not spoilers - but it's in ALL CAPS and you might get confused)
WHY DO ALL MY "24" SHIPS DIE?????? WHYYYYYYYYYYY???? *shakes fist angrily* DAMN YOU WRITERS!!!! DAMN YOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!
Okay, that's out of my system - for now.
On a happier note, Chloe's gone total Almeida! Yes folks, the Powers That Be finally figured out who the smartest person in the room is and put her in charge of CTU (and it took going to the White House Chief of Staff to do it - I tell you, the East Coast CTU Division is not the brightest advertisement in the phone book). For once, I agree with Bubba Gump - if he'd listened to Ms. O'Brian in the first place, this very well might not have happened. But now, we get to revel in the joyousness that is Chloe snark - and she's the big boss! I can just about forgive the stupidity that has overtaken CTU this season.
And Dahlia Hassan is the new president of the IRK... Hmm... I can honestly say that I don't hate that decision. But does this put a target on her back? Will poor little Kayla be an orphan at the end of the day? (hee hee - I just realized that country's name is "irk." XP)
And I also realized that Freddie looks like Stephen Colbert. Again, it's hard to take someone like him seriously.
At one point, we wondered where Dana had gone to. We figured that someone stuffed her in the wall too (but next week's preview proved that theory wrong). Just when are they going to call CSI?
And the moment we've all been waiting for! Yes, I'm referring to the return of:
CHUCK LOGAN, WILDERNESS YOUTH COUNSELOR!!
Oh geez... what problems is this doofus going to cause now? Last time we saw him, he at least professed to have found Jesus - but I see none of that here. This won't end well.
Speaking of not ending well -
How much of that view did that sniper enjoy? Or is this just another day at the office? He and Tom What's-His-Bucket from season 6 could be friends! ^_^
(funny note - we usually watch "24" with my cousin and she and her hubby bring over all the young children, plus their friend from down the road. Well, friend from down the road (who really isn't into "24" that much) just had to make the comment: "Who was on top?" -_-' To which my cousin's lovely 7-year-old daughter had to ask what that meant. Friend replied "Uhh... the bad guy was on the top floor looking to shoot." Ahh... children. Don't say anything nasty in front of them that you're going to have to explain later.)
It's never a good sign when the surgical team working on your main squeeze come out of the operating room five minutes later.
*sigh*... Jack knows he still has six hours to fill. What the crap is he thinking sneaking off somewhere so he and Renee can ... yeah, that... Why not just head to CTU, do the debrief and wait for the next crisis to come up? Dang Jack, I thought you were smarter than that.
It's official - Jack is going to snuff it this season (either that or in the "24" movie that somebody's supposedly writing). Teri, Nina, Audrey (AUDREY!), and now Renee... Jack simply cannot have a girlfriend or wife or anything. Maybe he should turn gay? (and when I start making comments like that, you know it's time to wrap this up.)
I dunno - with the return of ol' Chuck-Bob, the entirety of "24" could possibly end on Jack being shipped off to China again (Tony... I'm still waiting...)
**For more jokes at ol' Chuck-Bob's expense, please go here (scroll down to the icons). Feel free to see what else is at that blog - he hasn't done much for this season, but what he's done for past seasons is fantastic. It goes without saying that spoilers for all seasons of "24" are scattered throughout the site.**
