A Lot Of (Crystal) Balls
I definitely watch this damned show WAY too much.
I'm watching this week's episode at 1am (EST), thanks to TiVo, and as the action was unfolding, I started to get some premonitions. For instance, the second they took Walt Cummings away, I said to myself, "He'll be dead by the end of the show." When Mike called Logan and told him to come at once, I knew what happened. In fairness, I thought Walt would off himself in another way, but I knew the end result would involve his corpse.
A few minutes later, Jack and company break into Mayor McPervert's penthouse apartment, and after Jack finds the young Russian girl, I knew something would go wrong. I wasn't sure if she would kill herself (or someone else), until McPervert demanded she come with him. At that instant, I said to myself, "She's gonna kill him." Wham! Right again!
My newfound fortune telling is not necessarily a testament to my wits, but more appropriately, a testament to the circular reasoning in the Jack Bauer world. People implicated in treason are usually killed or off themselves, and scumbags with critical information are almost always killed unexpectedly (take Stephen Saunders, for example).
Yeah, I watch this damned show WAY too much.
