TV time!

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who found series 6 of 24 a bit lame and dreary. It used to have all the excitment in a TV show that people needed. This season was so rubbish, that Will and Rachel stopped at about episode 8. All the shock concepts have been used up or seen before, and we're not surprised anymore when a bomb does go off (apparently something nuclear did go off earlier in the day, but it was so unmemorable to me). Jack's getting a bit old and its just not as exciting as it used to be.

So the show is signed on to another 2 seasons, and the film is not currently on the agenda. Stop! The should spend 1-2 years making ONE last season - and make it very well.

24 Day 5 is over: Nooooooooooooooo

Spoiler warning! Episode 23–24

I can't wait a whole year! To find out what happens next? Poor Jack, I can't remember a time when Jack was happy. Maybe the end of series 3 when he cried cos he was so overwhelmed - that must be the "happiest" time Jack has experienced in the last 6 years. One man, one judge! What a way to go in the last 2 hours. Highlights was the President was pulling that shocked parrot facial expression again when he was being arrested. And the smiles on Martha Logan and Mike "Mole Face" Novik faces got you, you sonofabitch!

I'm glad Aaron made it through the day – what a hero. I'm still very sad about the loss of David Palmer, Michelle and Tony, but most of all Edgar :( waaaaaaaaa …. no one cared about the hobbit. I can't believe Chloe has an ex–husband. They couldn't be a worse match: outspoken + unspoken!

Poor Jack. No peace at the end of this day again. I just want to watch the first 10–minutes of series 1 again to remind myself of happier days…

The wait is until January 2007 people

Funny chat transcript whilst I was watching 24 episode 21


Pre–requisites before reading:
a) you're a geek
b) you're up to episode 21 in 24 series 5. *(look away now, if you're not that far yet)*
c) you know about spontaneous emission

Guess that leaves just me then :(

On the topic that the Americans have discovered text messaging:
Nathaniel says:
can u imagine the text messages that CTU would send?
"Yo wassup homeboy Mike, iz Kazza down n CTU, iz gettin' sum bad vibes from da presidentÚ, tell me wot shizzle's going down dawg. Kaz xXx"

On the topic of what animal do the characters look like?:
Chris says:
watch Mike "the mole face" Novik's facial expressions when he finds out!
Nathaniel says:
The president looks like a bloody parrot. And the evil mastermind is Mr Toad.

When the pres is really depressed
Nathaniel says:
lol the president is now refusing to answer his [Motorola] V3
if I was him, so would I (motorola's are a pile of donkey-doo)
Chris says:
surprised it can even ring with its 2KB of Memory

When the president asks for forgiveness from his wife:
Nathaniel says:
Martha Logan puts more daggers into charles' heart.
Poor ol' Presidente.
One last drink… before his death…
lol then 3–mobile buzzes his phone telling him about their new special offer "watch all the TV you want for just £5/month"
hello!? i'm trying to commit suicide here!
Chris says:
shove off! im trying to do the noble thing
Rob says:
but why can't he just die???

When schoolboy-suck-up Miles saves the day for the president:
Chris says:
Miles scanned the recording machine with an LED, that clearly emits a strong magetic field.
Don't you remember that from Dr Leeson's lecture? Spontaneous emission of magnetic fields?
from falling electrons in the Carrier Band —>Valence Band?
Common knowledge. LED happens to be red wavelength.
Nathaniel says:
lmao, its just a optical mouse

If you watch 24 look away now…

Episode 12 of series 5 is one of the saddest moments ever. I can't believe has gone :( We cried for so long!

That's even more sad than Danny's death in Spooks series 3. More shocking that all the events in hour 1. That was just so painful to watch, as the 24 timer silently counted the last 3 seconds of the hour.

24 Adrenaline Rush

24 is great isn't it? Series 3 and 4 didn't really have great stories but you just gotta watch it. Series 5 is great, episode 1 & 2 are shockers :O
Ahhhhhh that's a good 24 fix!

Talking to a friend who was surprised that they've gone as far as series 5, I've decided to start writing series 17

[Jack (aged 67 and still in a bullet-proof vest) and the President are both in wheelchairs in the Presidential Retirement home, an assassin creeps up in the home's lush green woodland, which overlooks the resort. He sets up and stares down at the resort through his rifle's sight. Jack and the president are laughing jovially at their life experiences. But suddenly Jack looks distracted and looks around spotting the sniper's red laser beam on the president at the most critical point.]

Jack: "Mr President! No!"

Jack dives to protect the President, the bullet gets caught square on his vest. He along with secret service personel draw out their pistol and empties it in the direction of the assassin, the roof-top secret service sniper who was too busy eating his pot noodle finds the assassin in his sights and kills him.

President: "Jack, once again this country owes you a debt of gratitude."
Jack: "I'm just doing my job Mr President, thankyou."
President: "Jack? Could you pass my dentures please?"
Jack: "Yes Mr President."

24 Series 3

4 out of 5 stars

Well, this has actually taken me close to 1 year to watch! After putting it down in March I finished it in the December holidays. There's nothing like 24, it grips you to watch "just one more" four times over every time. It always goes through so countless twists and turns, that every n_th_ hour you watch, renders the last n-1 hours' work redundant.

Day 3 is about the release of a deadly virus on American soil. Follow Jack Bauer on the 3rd longest day of his life! Jack Bauer deals with Mexican drug lords and ghosts of his past. And President Palmer has to deal with his wife! (again) Can't give any more away!

Approx 1006 mins with 5.1 audio. Just don't try watching with deleted scenes, enabled – man is it annoying!
Bring on days 4 and 5!

Great Heroes: Jack Bauer, Gael, Tony Almeida, Ryan Chappell
The most annoying characters: Kim Bauer, Chl÷e
The biggest beeeeeeches: Sherie Palmer, Nina Myers

24 Series 5 powered by Toyota

Ah 24 is back in the new year on TV's in the US. Jack's 5th longest day of his life. This time the show is not sponsored by Ford (yes BIG BIG SUVs and V8's) but now its Toyota (nimble mini Yaris). Now Japanese cars, bar Subarus are normally quite boring. The worlds best selling car is the Toyota Corrolla. Very boring piece of kit. Bland like water. I suppose cos "Jack Bauer" has essentially died, he doesn't care about life or what he drives I suppose. If I were running the show or Toyota, and wanted to do whats best for everyone, I'd only give Mr Bauer Lexuses (or should that be Lexii??) I really do not see Jack rushing off chasing after terrorists in a Toyota Prius doing 60mpg. No don't do that to our hero, please no!
