I love 24. I have an honest to goodness crush on Jack Bauer. Not Keifer. Heck, no. But, Jack? Oh, yeah.
But this season I’m…disappointed. There I said it, I’m disappointed in Jack! This season already had a lot to prove since apparently everyone from the last season is dead except Jack, Chloe and Buchanan. But every week we’re getting cheesier (more cheesy?) plots, less character development and barely any Jack time!
Last night Jack finds out the Chinese want to get a circuit board (or something) from a nuke in exchange for Jack’s old flame, Audrey. And Jack agrees. Jack would never agree to something like that! Remember Chase? Remember Curtis? Remember the 50 other guys Jack has killed this morning?
We’ve had 18 hours of chasing a silly suitcase bomb around and now we’re finally getting to Jack tearing up the entire Chinese government (which is what I’ve been waiting for since they carted him off last season) and suddenly he’s going to trade a government secret for a girlfriend he hasn’t seen in 2 years?!
Please, Jack, prove to me that I’m wrong. Make the next 6 hours worth Wayne Palmer’s coma, President Logan’s stabbing, Morris’ breakdown, Milo’s jealousy, your family’s freakishness and Doyle’s idiocy. And please, please call your daughter, Kim. Please!
Oh, but I will leave you with this. Because, well, it’s true:
