I can understand not wanting to talk about the three and a half hours of "American Idol" that aired last week, but we've had four hours of "24" and NOTHING? Fine, I'll start it.

Evil white people - check
Made up Islamic Republic - check
Jack has one foot out the door, but gets sucked back in - check
Shocking reappearance of characters from previous season - check
Badass violence to close an episode - BINGO!

Mr. Lean and Mean sure makes stupid decisions - but, by God, he makes them QUICKLY!

That Renee sure is one messed up B.

I could not care less about Jenni's - sorry, DANA'S shocking secret past or what the evil redneck svengali is going to do, knowing it. I believe I am not alone in this feeling.

At least once per episode I have said aloud "why doesn't Chloe just get Miles to do [x] if he's unemployed and presumably sitting around doing nothin'?" but perhaps he's not in New York City? Or taking care of the BABY (which is probably old enough to enlist by now). On that tip, funny how everybody kinda ends up in New York City on this day. But "24" sure is funny like that.

Now I have to find that blog I was reading last year and see if that awesome dude is writing awesome recaps about all the awesome again.

24 - "it's still awesome to me, dammit"

EDIT: OMG Larry Moss was right (The W)

All I can talk about are:

1) The Battlestar Galactica references. Specifically, the enormous laugh I got out of Starbuck sitting in the CTU conference room when Leoben suddenly is shown on the monitor.

"All of this has happened before and all of it will happen again."

In the case of Jack Bauer's life, no truer words were ever spoken.

2) What Renee Did at the end, which got an even bigger laugh of shock and delight from me. And then followed by Jack's reaction:

"Renee, what the hell do you think you're doing?! That man had rights! You can't treat people like that, you crazy bitch!"

Oh, and Herc from The Wire showed too and beat on Jack in the basement. That was neat.

It's been OK so far. Is the new CTU chief not able to raise his head above his shoulders? His posture is creeping me out.

CTU has the worst personnel screening in the world. Do they even do background checks on who they hire? And why do I care about her hick boyfriend? Or her for that matter?

Renee's interesting at least.

The 3.5 episode arc of Jack/Chloe/Ortiz stopping the assassination was pretty well done. I'm not sure about this next storyline about Jack and Crazy Renee infiltrating the Russians. I do love, however, that Renee is apparently as nuts as Jack was after his first 'bad day' (i.e. S1). Jack hacksawed that child pornographer's head off, Renee lops a guy's thumb off.....good times.



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

hehe. Cool. The Human Target pilot right before had Six and Cottle. (Well, I'll always think of Donnelly Rhodes as Dutch, but that wouldn't be relevant to the point, would it?)

As for 24, after four straight lousy seasons I've finally managed to kick this bad habit.

All I could think about during the 4 hours is how distractingly Jason Schwartzman-esque Hassan's brother is.

Still don't care about President Taylor.

Oh yeah, and I'm disappointed Renee's cover didn't include a sexy Russian accent.

Edit: D'oh! The blog CRZ linked to also mentioned the Schwartzman thing. I feel wholly unoriginal now.

That awful haircut is way more Beatle-mania than Schwartzman.

Chris you forgot: New head of CTU grudgingly learns to accept the advice of Jack and Chloe after repeated mistakes...check!

Katee Sackhoff's shoulders are like Bronco Nagurski's. It kind of freaks me out. Plus, she should taser that old boyfriend of hers and send him off to Gitmo.

I still believe Mykelti's best work was on the New WKRP.

I like all the brief cameos by familiar faces:

Aceveda from the Shield

Herc from the Wire

Evan from Nash Bridges

Leoben from BG

That guy who was the sellout mayor on Jericho

No joke dude ... she looks a drag queen.

I like the fact that they're seemingly making Freddie Prinze, Jr. look like a badass, I'm just having a hard time buying it ...

I wish they would have shown Jack at the zoo.

I meant to say earlier that *I* was comparing him to the UPS white board ad guy. Every time he'd appear on the screen I would start a UPS white board ad. "Allllll right - assassination conspiracies."

I hate that UPS guy!

Every time I see him, I envision him getting his head shaved by Perro Aguayo Jr. in Tijuana.

Good Times.

Hello. Our post-Easter lull continues - or maybe it just isn't tax refund impulse buying season yet - but whatever the case, we only have 150 DVDs, 25 Blu-rays and 12 "digital" titles to share this week.
