Liveblogging - Day 6: 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Here we go, with your host, RFTR.
Previously on 24: There was no Kim Bauer. Now on 24: There probably won't be any Kim Bauer. But a fella can hope, right?
I'll be back at you in a few minutes as the next episode of 24 begins...
Viewer Discretion is Advised—that's because they know at any minute I could post a nude picture of Kim.
11:00 - "We must rise above our bigotries and stand our ground." Well, if that hick had beaten the crap out of new White Castle, then the nuke wouldn't have gone off. See? Bigotry saves lives.
11:02 - Nobody is authorizing anything—what do you want to bet he's authorized it?
11:03 - Bleeding heart liberals in a Democratic administration? Nooooooooo... Never.
11:04 - "I need Karen Hayes to go away." Yeah, if only it was that easy to get rid of whiney women. (Yes, ladies, as you've probably figured out by now, this is going to be a very sexist liveblog. Sorry about that.) (Men, here's another gift for you.)
11:05 - Jack's brother is a lousy liar. And he whines worse than Karen Hayes. Nice of Jack to leave his glasses on so he can see, though.
11:07 - "My head was into other things at the time." Like trying to kill you, Jack.
Wait, Jack's Dad went vigilante? Sounds like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Do we believe Bauer frere, though? Also, are we to assume that Jack's sister-in-law didn't hear her husband's screams from the next room? Or is she just so turned on by Jack that she can ignore his actions?
Ads - Why is Cingular re-branding to AT&T? I can't believe that I'm the only American who now thinks the word "singular" looks like it's spelled wrong.
Also, aakash, you shouldn't comment if you can't keep track of simple concepts in this show. It's very complex—we wouldn't want you to hurt yourself.
11:16 - Rocket seems remarkably calm for just having been tortured by his brother. This makes me intensely curious to know what their childhood was like.
11:17 - "My father's company hired him." I love the big sighs that Jack lets out right before he has to explain something.
11:18 - "Boy Jack, it's good to see your loyalty is still with your family." This from the guy who 45 minutes ago said he should have had his brother killed when he had the chance.
11:19 - Do we really need another whiney blonde chick on this show? And if we do, can't we just bring Kim back? Oooooh and she's a gold-digger. In LA. There's a shock. Time to DTB.
11:21 - Milo needs a shave. Of course, maybe that would expose a mole? (Har har har.) Also, he shouldn't use the phrase "with all due respect" when he clearly means "with no respect whatsoever."
11:22 - Dude, Milo, chill out. You're starting to sound like the afore-mentioned gold-digger. What do you think? Time for another Kim break? I think so.
11:23 - Uh-oh, CAIR put a mole in Al Quaeda, and he has no idea how to pull it off.
11:24 - This guy is almost as weasley as the former President.
11:26 - Skeletons in his closet? No, Karen, those are just black leather whips and a midget with a ball gag. Sorry, I know that's a disturbing image to leave you with on a commercial break. Here, this should help:
Ads - Doesn't John Goodman weigh like 800 pounds? Is he really the best spokesman for coffee and sausage/egg croissants?
The plasma TV that they just advertised for the 24 challenge said underneath it "may not depict actual prize."
11:31 - Milo totally wants the fake-arab chick. How long until he sexually harasses her?
11:32 - Logging her in under his user ID? The only Arab in the building, and he's giving her greater access? This is going to end poorly.
11:34 - The President is getting his interracial groove on. She's "honored to serve under" him. She said so herself. And she's making him "rise to this challenge." Man, this show could EASILY jump the shark into a porno.
Let's hope the lovely lady at the right shows up first.
11:36 - If I'm ever working in the White House during a national crisis (don't worry, I'm pretty sure that this post will preclude me from passing a background check) I'm going to body check the first guy to pull out a cell phone. He's clearly the mole.
Ads - That chick made the tax guy disappear. Bauer would have picked up his computer monitor and broken it over his head.
House? The female doctor said "if he moves, I could shred his artery" like she was concerned about it. Jack would have said "if he moves, I could shred his artery," as a promise of torture possibilities.
11:41 - They're checking license plates one-by-one to see if they're registered to this "McCarthy"? Couldn't they just look up McCarthy's records and see what IS registered to him?
11:42 - CAIR is staffed by pickpockets, apparently. And how is he going to give it back, exactly?
11:43 - Cynthia wants the FBI to let her CAIRing man go before he gets hurt. Apparently she wasn't listening when the FBI beat the crap out of him. And again, how is he supposed to put the phone back? He could use a distraction, like this one:
11:45 - So Cynthia was right? And now CAIR is going to get his ass kicked, trying to return it?
11:46 - Looks like the guards in this place are running a tight ship. See, everyone? This is why they hood the prisoners at Gitmo. Tough to beat the crap out of another prisoner when you can't see.
Ads - "What the future holds for 24's President Palmer, tonight at 10." What they really mean is "What the future holds for 24's President Palmer, tonight at 10:58."
11:52 - We're back. Here's another Kimmy treat:
11:54 - Jack's dad is going to walk in at the last second. This is lame. I feel like I'm Tyler D. or something for all of the excitement in this episode.
Sorry, folks, blogger totally choked while I was doing my last session of liveblogging. I said something about how Jack started sounding whiney "Daaaaaad, he should have been more careful with his nuuuuuuuukes."
And now Jack's brother is going to try to have him and the Babe farmer killed—but he forgets that Jack will always escape to torture you further. Nice.
Oh, and since we got cut off, you didn't get your last Kim surprise. It's posted at the left.
