24 Season 6. Episode 17, 10 PM – 11 PM

10:00: We have to guess that the missile doesn’t make it to the target.
-Oh great. The threat of the nuclear strike caused the ambassador to come up with new information.
-“This was all a bluff?!” Bullshit. For the first time, I feel like “24” has gone overboard in reinforcing a neoconorgasmoviolence fantasy. Iraq has proven that preemptive force doesn’t work, so “24” will have to work a little harder to make it seem like it does.
-Torture scene: 12 (Fayed by Jack Bauer and Doyle)
-Doyle, the loose cannon.
-“Now we’re going to have some fun.”
10:14: Is Tom Lennox no longer in any trouble for the assassination attempt?
10:16: Now how on earth did the terrorists know where they were.
-Oh yeah, I forgot that Jack Bauer “gets shot” in this episode. So it will take about 10 minutes fo… Oh, not even 10 minutes. That was quick.
-Heh. I didn’t call that happening, but here’s the thing, you can’t trust “24” at all anymore, so it could have just as easily been real that the terrorists found Jack Bauer and Fayed and shot them. I’m revoking the JBKCs I had posted for Jack Bauer.
10:27: I wonder if they have a code name for the fake terrorist rescue, you know, “Bill, it’s Jack Bauer, we need to pull the ‘red fire truck’ on Fayed, he’s not going to break.”
-Another major issue. In a show that is supposedly being shown in real time it’s disingenuous for major plot twists to be arranged behind the camera’s back. There was a lot of this last year and it’s total bullshit.
-“If Jack Bauer says that’s a dead end, then it’s a dead end and I believe him.”
-Where did C.T.U. get this extra team of undercover Arab extremists? They couldn’t have used them earlier?
-“What you’re suggesting is barbaric.” You’re damn right it is, but Palmer rationalizes it by saying political dissidents are mistreated?
10:31: Milo’s jealous and he’s compromising the mission. That boy needs to get his emotions in check before another suitcase nuke goes off on his watch.
10:33: Wow, that was quick. The ambiguous Arab nation got General Habib on the phone FAST.
10:41: Way to go, Nadia. Too bad you couldn’t help with the translation analysis before it was too late. Is General Habib going to face any consequences for compromising the mission?
-Why did Jack Bauer need Doyle’s phone? Didn’t he have his own?
10:43:This is where it all goes bad for Jamal and the others… Yup. It went bad.
-Fayed is good at taking out all of the cops. His specialty is killing 7 people at once.
-Why do you think Jack Bauer needed to crawl underneath the truck instead of climbing on the back of it? I think it’s because he’s always wanted to be Indiana Jones.
10:51: Now that the VP is gone, what’s the problem with the President getting a little medical attention from the clinic?
10:54: JBKC 20 (Fayed’s bad friend)
-Can’t Jack Bauer call in an airstrike on this location?
10:55:JBKC 21 and 22 and 23 and 24 and 25 (All of Fayed’s men).
-JBKC: 26 (Fayed).
-Sometimes Jack Bauer gets overpowered by one terrorist. Sometimes he’s able to take out 6 of them by himself.
-I think Jack Bauer just ended it. But we’re going to be pretty surprised if there’s more than one bomb in that location.
-OK, both the bombs are there, what’s going to be the issue next week?
-Did they just decide to call the show “18”?
-Oh, man. So the Chinese knew about the bombs? No rest for the weary, or Jack Bauer. I need help quitting. Support me in the comments.

    the fucking Chinese! Man can’t they let Jack be. Now they have to get Audrey all involved. Un-freaking-believable. This show better fuckin’ be tops for the next few weeks or I’m done. And I’m sick and tired of all the right wing talking points continuously peppered throughout. Help me.

    This is like two seasons all wrapped up into one! Its a 24 value meal, BIGGIE SIZED! Arabs, Russians and Chinese, OH MY!!

    Lori seemed to feel that Jack talking shit to Fayed before he slowly raised the chain to hang him was a little too evil for Jack. I thought it was pretty cool.

    The writers have really let some story lines fall this year…Logan dying as the cliff hanger at the end of one episode and then never being spoken about again, Hilary Swank’s ex-husband trying to assassinate Palmer. I don’t think attempted assassinations just get explained away by someone saying “i think it was that arab dude.”

    I don’t share in your discontent. I will always watch and love every irrational moment!!
