Fox: 24

In short: The fifth longest day of Jack Bauer’s life.

(spoilers) Thoughts: …. This is just stupid. After dealing with the evil Arabs last season, this year’s 24 was a thinly disguised attempt to smear George Bush with an idiot president as the chief villain. Somehow after five years the writers are able to come up with even more annoying characters to act out their ridiculous storylines. Highlights were the President’s crazy wife with the ample cleavage, fat Edgar finally biting the dust (or rather the nerve gas), Samwise Gamgee meeting a similar fate, Jack growling his way through the last ten episodes, and an escalating series of ridiculous terrorist attacks – the likes of which if ever occured in one day would surely destroyAmerica’s spirit beyond all reason. They’ve now killed off just about everyone decent so there’s only cannon fodder next for the next season, which has been set up in such a way as to invite a Jack-is-the-brainwashed-villain plotline. Go on, do it. I want to see people’s faces when Jack turns evil! On second thoughts, I probably shouldn’t bother tuning in next year. Why the hell am I still watching this? I should just stop wasting my time. Who am I kidding, I’ll be there to see how much more the writers can get away with.
