24's New Season Is Awesome
So thanks to the ever-growing tech skills of the Roomie, the first four episodes of 24 have been torrented directly onto his G4. That would be the episodes that have their premiere on Fox this Sunday, January 14th and Monday, January 15th in 2-hour blocks.
And yeah, they're awesome. If you haven't seen the show before, I highly recommend giving this season a shot. A lot of the characters are new or changed since last time, but they make it pretty easy to catch up.
And if you're a fan, it's pure Jack Bauer mainlined to your eyeballs, baby.
Honestly, if you can watch the entire first episode without screaming "Holy Sh**!" at least once, then, well you just don't appreciate good television. But don't look below the picture of Jack if you don't want to read spoilers.
Here are some fun spoilerish comments on the new season:
-Wayne Palmer is President, and not as good as his brother at it. I have faith, though, after the fourth episode. Also, Presidents Palmer's sister, played by Regina King, shows up. And she seems pretty awesome. The Roomie and I have a debate over whether or not her boyfriend is evil. I say he's not evil and Roomie thinks he is.
-CTU's Bill Buchanan and Karen Hayes from Homeland Security are now married and bigwigs? They're surprisingly all cute and lovey. Even the Roomie and I were all "Awww, old people can be so sweet."
-Chloe ex-husband is now at CTU and is a huge douchebag, but he's amusing so it works for me.
-Milo is back. He gets about as much respect as I do.
-Jack gets all Angelus. And it's so awesome. That's when the season really kicks into gear.
-That new hot chick--Nadia-- seems totally evil, or kinda clueless to give new viewers entree...or just around to translate the Arabic. Hopefully she's not gay. Although that would be hotter.
-It looks like they may be able to avoid Kim for most, if not all, of the episode! Sweet Jesus YES! My 24 prayers have been answered!
