Prison Break & 24


Prison Break
Dammit, not Nick! :-( And his father too. There was some flailing going on here. So let's take stock - Westmoreland's a goner, the laundry guy's been captured, they're stuck with Haywire and now T-Bag and C-Note know about the $5 mil stash. So there's the plot for S2. And Sara is crying in her car. She didn't take any drugs from the infirmary, did she? :-/ Am I reading too much into that drug flashback? And what about LJ? Will he be the one escaping in S2?


24
Well, I ended up missing the first half of this episode. I guess Heller's alive and we all knew Slime would turn on them all. And the Pres was talking too long in shooting his brains out for that to actually happen. There's still time for Martha to do it! And damn it, don't kill Aaron! I have to say, unless there was a lot of good stuff in the first half, but I'm really ready for this season to be over. It feels like they should have wrapped it up by now. I don't recall this kind of enervation setting in in previous seasons. This whole "secret cabal that runs everything" is really, really overdone. X-Files, Alias, Prison Break, 24. Watch Craphole Island turn out to be a scheme by a bunch of guys in suits in a darkly lit room. (Not that I care.)

There was some definite set up there for S2 for sure. There are what, 4 spots on Abruzzi's plane? And what ever is gonna go down between he and T-Bag is going to leave them one more short. Plus they haven't brought up LJ for a while, so you know that for next season, and now the $$$ too. They're definitely gonna be some busy boys...

I hope Sara didn't take any drugs :( It sure seemed like is she hadn't, she was really considering it. Not cool.

I think there's three spots on Abruzzi's plane and here I thought of them might be taken by Nick. Not so! :-(

I was thinking Sara might stage it to look like someone broke in looking for drugs but that wouldn't make any sense. So she might be fired or quit and be free to go on the run with Michael?

Man, I hope that Sara didn't take any morphine with her, even if her goal was just to angstily contemplate it rather than taking it. She's going to have enough questions to answer without making it worse.

I'm now thinking she's going to just quit and go on the run herself, looking for Michael! And then they can meet up in Thailand. ;-)

I'm right there with you on 24. I tune in because I'm hoping that Martha will rise up in a Valley-of-the-Dolls-style drugged-up fury with crazy hair and mascara down to her chin to put a cap in the president's ass.

We can hope.

Yes, go Crazy!Martha. I really think that's what's going to happen, otherwise why even have a looped-out first lady in the storyline? And that would be sweet.

Are you also getting a little bored at all the recent footdragging or is that just me?

I am definitely getting a little bored. It has got to be difficult to go season after season and figure out how to keep things going. I mean, you've gotta figure that even during the most stressful crazy day in any one person's life, there's 30 minutes here and there where they're just having a sandwich and doing paperwork or something boring like that.

As I said, I'm waiting for my Crazy!Martha moment. I adore her.

Also, I haven't quite forgiven them for only using the pretty pretty eyecandy jailbait in the first couple of episodes this season. They could have at least had him taking a shirtless nap in a back room somewhere so that we could catch a nice glimpse every now and then.

Do you watch the Gilmore Girls? The town troubadour (Grant Lee Phillips) has been discovered so the town will be overrun with bands/singers trying to replace him. I just heard that Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) is going to be one of them! And Sonic Youth!

The Martha storyline particularly is feeling tremendously padded. I think they needed to have about 3 less eps this season. And the guy who's calling the shots for the Pres. - that's just not very interesting, now is it? '

And yes, bring back pretty, pretty Derek! At least in some fic, eh? ;)

I'm not a Gilmore Girls watcher, but I did hear about the musical guests coming up. That's pretty cool! I might tune in. What do they think they are, The O.C. or something? LOL.

I know! That show made me feel like a geek for liking so many of my favofite bands. Damn them!

I'm so curious to see Chloe in this context, though. I thought that she had a comedy background, but apparently she's got the music in her, too!

I thought he was going to kill himself last night, but then I thought, wait, this is 24, he'll kill Martha instead..I'm still hoping she saves the day..and somehow Aaron is still alive.

Yes, and Aaron and Martha can ride off into the sunset! Except I think Martha will kill her hubby and then be locked up for it and the truth will never come out.

Dude, did you notice how Haywire promptly dropped the radio the moment Michael said he was in? Um, hello, TACKLE HIM!! *headdesk* No reason on earth Lincoln or C-Note couldn't have just knocked the shit out of him and gone on. :P

Good point. But they apparently left their brains back in their cells or something. *shakes head*

Sara soo took the drugs. I think it would be just awesome (and by awesome I mean sad for her but great for plot!) if she relapsed as a result of this and it's all Michael's fault. Oooo the angst!
She was acting way too suspicious when she unlocked the door though.
