Terrorize This!

Great episode of "24" tonight. You know the first ten minutes? That's the sort of thing I'd like to see happen in Iraq, oh, just about every day.

I liked Fox News' report of the rescue. Doesn't the viewing audience notice that every time the world gets saved, Jack Bauer is always prominently involved? Shouldn't he have gotten a book deal by now?

And nice to see the girlfriend get rescued- can we start a pool on how many episodes it'll be before she's taken hostage again? She's getting to be the new Kim, who remains the only character in television history so annoying that she was run off a show by its fanbase, despite her status as one of TV's sexiest women.

And speaking of which, when Jack goes out on a date, does he warn the woman in advance that "yea, every person who's ever close to me, sooner or later, will be abducted and/or murdered?" Then again, I suppose chicks dig it when he saves the world.

I can confirm the chicks-dig-Jack supposition.

I say she's captured again by 4pm.

She'll get captured because her husband is obviously in on it. After all, he was the evil prosecutor in The Count of Monte Cristo.

I knew Marianne was in on it because, well, this is "24" and she's a black woman. She's obviously up to no good.
