I must admit that this season of 24 is back on track with the original season. I stopped watching last season (as I'm sure a lot of people did) because the plot was hokey. OK, the terrorists with weapons plot line is back again this year but they lured me back with a more limited cast (originals Jack, Chloe, Bill) and new faces, like this guy....
Colm Feore is the President's husband. An awesome actor that I look forward to seeing again at The Stratford Festival this summer. With those intense eyes how could I not give this season a try.
Philboy at Give Me My Remote recaps '24' every week. At the end of his post there is a section called "Everything I Need to Know in Life I Learned from Jack Bauer (and Others)…". Some of my favorites so far are:
~ When you get in a shootout, you can just leave any dead bodies wherever the end up. It’s fine.
~ If you know someone who won’t believe things about their significant other, have a photo slide show on your phone ready to go as evidence.
~ If you want to keep something secret and not let anyone know you have it, make sure it glows.
~ A street being “One Way” is really only a suggestion.
~ Surviving a multiple car crash is easy. It’s a kick to the side that hurts!
~ It is totally OK to push your co-workers.
~ The best time to have a discussion where someone’s life is on the line and one person has a gun pointed at the other is next to a car on fire.
~ The more syllables something has, the more deadly it is.
~ Saying, “Copy that!” is so much more badass than saying, “OK.”
~ If I tell you I am going to shoot you, but not kill you, trust me.
~ Just because I make you bleed a lot, doesn’t me I screwed up.
~ Going into a trial without a lawyer isn’t poor legal strategy. It’s BADASS!
