As I predicted last week, I think Episode 9 will be the beginning of a new plot line, a new threat, perhaps a new super bad guy. This has been the pattern the last couple years – to change the plot lines up a couple times a ‘day’. I think the First Gentleman gets rescued today. You have any predictions?
Should be a good week if it’s anything like last week. So far we’ve got a 9 on the Jack Bauer Knockdown Count (remember for a JBKC, people don’t need to be killed by Jack Bauer, just knocked down or out). I’m going out on a limb and predicting the end of the air plane plot line because it looks like they blow up Dubaku’s headquarters. Jack Bauer wasn’t on too much last week, so maybe that will be rectified tonight.
We’ve written A LOT about ’24’ over the last 3 years. Check it all out for the most recent episode posts and the oldies as well.
Wow, sorry about the late start. I was having some technical difficulties. This first 10 minutes has been action packed. Sorry for the delay, but here we go, more after the jump.
Another big event calls for another look at the Facebook Status Stream or FaStStream (get it? get it?). This one’s even in chronological order as opposed to the 273 Facebook Status from Election Day.
You can see the waves again, from mood to mood, more subtle this time. From eagerness the night before, to some folks waiting in line on the Mall, to when CNN/Facebook started up (those status messages are tagged), to when Obama was speaking and peeps were calling out their favorite quotations, to Rev Lowry calling for an ‘Amen’, to people getting ready to go out to Inaugural Balls.
One surprising absence is commentary on Chief Justice Roberts’ flubbing the oath (it’s been confirmed that the 20th Amendment makes the Oath a formality, so Obama IS officially the President). And it’s hard to tell that anyone was watching the parade (even the viewing stand was empty by the time it started). CNN was making references to the ceremonies running late all day and I hope, hope, HOPE, they don’t turn this into a ‘theme’ of the Administration. We’ll see. I watched the ceremony in a conference room at work on ABC via Slingbox. There were about 30-40 co-workers watching as well. Those are my memories from the day, what did you catch?
I’m exhausted and the Obamas still have 4 more balls to get to as of 11:46PM on 1/20. Not sure how they’re still going.
I’m going to lay it out right now. Facebook/Twitter needs to allow for exporting of these streams, or someone’s going to have to build the tool, because I don’t have the time to format these bitches every time we come together as a nation to celebrate the election of a transcendent figure. Got it?
Without further adieu, below are 208 Facebook Status Messages from my friends in 24 hours including the Inauguration.

Last week, I found ’24’ to be surprisingly good. That is, I had expected it to be awful, and was pleasantly surprised to find it watchable. Now, we’re entering a time where the quality will need to step it up a bit to ensure the cliffhanger suspenses from week to week do not fall flat.
OK, 2nd night of the 4 hour premier event. I like the way they launch this program. Better than making us wait a week to get the fix. So far, I’m not hating ’24’ the way I have the last 5 seasons, which is nice.
