I Can’t Get Enough of Jack Bauer
I really thought I might have to ween off 24 this year. Last season was better than season 4, but nothing has really come close to the first two seasons. Fortunately, season 6 has been absolutely incredible so far. Sure, the writers seem to reaching more and more, but when you have a nuclear bomb going off in a populated area, Jack Bauer dracula’ing some guy, killing one of the only friends he has left, and then putting a plastic bag over his brother’s head, you have amazing television. Not to mention that who Jack’s brother is – the Bluetooth guy, Grey Bauer – was fucking mindblowing. I laugh at anyone who watched Heroes over 24 tonight.
Just this one line from tonight was phenomenal:
“If the next thing out of your mouth isn’t what I wanna hear, I’m going to hurt you.”
“Actually, you’re hurting me now.”
“Trust me, I’m not.”
Not to mention when Jack just sucker-punched Grey right in the face.
I really forgot just how exciting 24 is. Thank you, Jack Bauer.
