yes, i am more than a week late getting to it, but the sixth season of 24 is upon us!! hurrah for rogue agents! and magic hoodies! luckily, this year, jack had spent 20 months being tortured by the chinese, during which he uttered nary a word.
but when the time came for him to talk again, he had to whisper 3 words, and then had his normal voice back again. it couldn’t have been the hoodie, because he didn’t have it this time.
since we’ve seen the CTU gang last, bill buchanan (head of the LA office of CTU) married karen hayes (i believe secretary of homeland security), chloe (the worlds most irritating and disprespectful human on the face of the planet who also works for CTU) got back together with her ex-husband morris (british expat who worked for CTU, then sold women’s shoes, and works for CTU again), and milo (who once received a severed human foot in his locker on six feet under’s first season) and nadia are people i’ve never seen before who are promoted in over chloe because she has issues with working within the system.
this season, while there is a dearth of CentoxTM, we’ve got suitcase nukes, the brother of the assasinated president as the president, his sister as the lawyer/life partner of the head of an islamic-american association under susupicion of terrorism to bring awareness to ethnic and religious profiling, and a jack who’s wrestling his PTSD demons and kicking suicide bombers off the red line.
i’m still one hour behind, as it was on opposite heroes, and um, hi! heroes! the show with the woman who absorbed the ultraviolent (oops, i typed ultraviolet) personality of her dead twin, and peter petrelli – the power absorber – running off to protect himself from nuking new york to the NEVADA TEST SITE (because there’s no better way to prevent yourself from becming nuclear than to run to the test site). parkman is awesome. claire is okay (i might like her more if i didn’t secretly worry she was prettier than i). hiro rules. why does the invisible guy need money if he just steals things, anyway? and more of micah’s powers, please.
oh, i forgot this was a post about 24. oops.
