24


That guy at the end that Jack talked to: Last season's president, Logan. So now he's disgraced and out of power. I hope we see his wife again too. Jean Smart! She was so fantastic last year!

It's not hard to believe Jack was willing to die at his father's hands - hell, the man lays down his life at least once each season, if not more often!

But that he was apologizing to his father? Wow. Jack is one messed-up dude. Now, more than ever I want to know what happened to his mother. Dead in childbirth? Off living on the French Riviera? Undermining some other government somewhere? I don't think it's just going to be Morris hitting the bottle after today! And Morris is going to fuck up even worse soon. AUGH.

Also, who knew Milo was so hot? I mean, I've always kind of liked Eric Balfour but he's much more pumped-up than I pictured!

Tom Lennox grew a conscience just a leetle bit too late. But that is the way these things go. He can't possibly live now, can he?

Meanwhile, where's Karen?

ETA: [Excerpt from TWOP boards:
Jack's been ready to die and trying to get himself killed all day. But no one can seem to get it right, poor guy.
Heh. Yeah, I'll bet that hanging out with Jack is a real drag these days.

"Hey, Jack you wanna -"

"Fine. Go ahead and kill me."

"-grab some lunch, Dude. I was going to say 'grab some Lunch'"

I swear to God, every time I see James Cromwell, I keep expecting him to call Jack "boyo." I so need to watch L.A. Confidential again......

Apparently, when you're a disgraced President, it also means you're exempt from shaving. I almost didn't recognize him! LOL! And as for Milo? He will always be foot-fetish guy from "Six Feet Under".....hee!

lI keep expecting him to call Jack "boyo."

Or say, "Hush, hush" when he offs someone! How many is he up to now? And damn, he's pretty cavalier about (potentially) killing both sons and his grandson in one day.

And hee, over at TWOP, they were comparing Logan to Al Gore's post-election mountain man look. I'm hoping this means Aaron & Martha will be back too!

Aww, I like Milo! :)

Am I delusional, or was Eric Balfour wicked jacked in Six Feet Under?

ANYWAY, I SCOFF IN 24's GENERAL DIRECTION. Not to be rude, but all the connections are ridiculous. At least when Lost does it they know they're being mystical.

Jack is, as ever, very pretty/badass, though.

*shuns you for life*

Ah, but 24 moves so fast, you forget about the most ridiculous stuff because you're already onto the next thing! And there are no flipping flashbacks on 24! And damn, it's good to see Jack kick ass each week. Lost could use a lot more asskicking! (Although I did really like last week's ep.)

But that's the thing, except for this season, I've watched like random episodes once or twice a season since the first, and I can just plug right back in and not be confused about anything. It's good for me, but it gives it all a bit of a recycled feel? I DON'T KNOW. Whatever makes you happy - and the asskicking is a nice addition to my life, I'll admit.

I like stuff with guns and asskicking. You like stuff with aliens and robots. To each her own! I enjoy the running themes in 24, like Jack barking, "We don't have time for that!" And of course having to torture people all the damn time. Either you enjoy that or you don't, I guess. I admit some of it I could do without, like the constant infighting at CTU.

Still, I have to roll my eyes at the cheesy special FX and "quadrant" and "vector" talk on those sci-fi shows. Different strokes!

I don't! I almost categorically hate aliens. ...with a handful of quality exceptions. :( I like Rome and Dexter and House and lots of completely terrestrial British shows...*mopes* I was just discussing, I didn't mean to offend.

So I guess we only have Lost in common!

Eh, it's okay. Lord knows I've bashed The Others and Juliet and Ana often enough to people who like them.

WELL, and The Philadelphia Story. Don't forget CK Dexter Haven and Macaulay Connor!

So, is that guy good or bad? *is confused*

Man, I feel SO sorry for Morris and the fact that no one seems to realize that the guy HAD A FUCKING DRILL SHOVED IN HIS SHOULDER. Yeah, I'd say the recovering alkie can have a drink or two if he wants. As much as I like Chloe, I wish she (and everyone else at CTU) would cut the guy some slack!

I don't really like Marilyn. Her eyes freak me out. Does this mean her and Jack'll make out? :P

Logan is very bad. At first he just seemed like an incompetent weasel, but then we realized he was quite bad.

Agree - Morris should be in counseling or in the medical unit or home in bed. He's not getting any sympathy. I'm thinking he's going to self-destruct or do something incredibly reckless to redeem himself by the end of the day. :-/ I don't think Chloe is really helping him by covering up his drinking lapse. That's definitely going to come back to haunt them all.

Marilyn - yeah, me no like. Not hot. And Jack doesn't usually have much time to make out! The odd brushing the hair out of one's eyes is about as tender as he has time to get. In the first season, he was married and he started off S4 with a girlfriend (Audrey, the one he asked about when he returned from China). So when he's had existing relationships, we see him get a little romantic at times and I guess that could be the case here. But I'd really prefer not! I'm much rather see Audrey return but I hear she's just signed to a new show.
