LIVE 24 UPDATE

OK, apparently somebody detonated an EMP, and now Jack needs to get something to CTU for decoding ASAP. I have no idea what this means, but the president is in danger. Also I think Audrey still has feelings for Paul.

Update: Jack is interrogating Terror Mom, and he has been in the room with her for nearly 30 seconds now without shooting her in the thigh. Jack is getting SOFT.

Update: I don't remember who first pointed this out, but whoever it was is correct: Terror Mom sounds exactly like Carol Channing.

Update: There has been increased chatter. That's what terrorists do: They chatter.

Update: Jack is about to be in "extreme and immediate danger." THERE'S a novel plot concept.

Update: Terror Mom Channing and Terror Boy just reunited. I think she has the hots for him.

Update: Chloe just offered to handle Edgar's overflow.

Update: Somebody just actually emitted the following line of dialogue: "They're going in."

Update: Sure enough, Jack is now in danger, and it can only be described as extreme and immediate.

Update: I'm beginning to think that Jack is going to go through this whole episode without shooting a single person.

Update: I was trying to figure out the plot thread involving the soldier, but now the fake soldier shot him, so I guess I can stop worrying about it.

Update: For a secretary of defense, William Devane spends an awful lot of time just standing around in hallways.

Update: Audrey is crying. Audrey is always crying.

Update: "We can't afford to have a sloppy tail."

Update: Chloe just switched to infrared and there's only one person in the car. I hate it when people take too long to switch to infrared.

Update: Why do car commercials always call a sale a "sales event?"

Update: Chloe just asked Edgar to get her the CalTrans Interface. They are kinky, those two.

Update: I think Marwan just had Carol Channing shot!

First

Maybe he's trying the old "good cop good cop" routine.

Woo! Anyways, does anyone have any idea what's going on with that soldier guy? He's like...with bad guy, then all these people have got guns on him and his family. Or is it a different guy? What's going on? Oh well, it's back on.

does anyone watch "Fat Actress" with Kirstie Alley? On showtime at 10? I think it is hilarious!

Woah! Terror mom is getting a little...overexcited at her meeting with Terror Son. She's all over him.

OK. Bad stuff is about to happen to TerrorMom. All that kissing on TerrorBoy guarantees it.

Bad stuff *always* happens to you on 24 if you start getting mushy.

is this a cult?

Who is Breathy Voice Woman?

I've never watched this show before. I'm just waiting for Dave's witty commentary.

Yessss...cubie....

Joiiiiin ussssss.......

Ooo. Someone died and was put in a trunk.

"You're family is dead, and so are you."

"I know you are, but what am I?"

Dave, you forgot to add that Jack stabbed himself in the stomach because, you know, he had to look the part.
Did you know that terrorists are now portable, and can easily fit in car storage? I didn't.

Yeah, but Dave, did you see what Jack did? He knew he'd have to feign submission, so he satisfied his almost insatiable appetite for violence by stabbing himself!

Is that brilliant, or what?

Chloe just offered to handle Edgar's "overflow". Is that the same as his "special purpose"? Just wonderin'.

I believe it's called "stow and go terrorists". Cool.

Do people actually take this show seriously?

Okay, that had to hurt.

"We can't afford a sloppy tail."

That's why you need someone who knows how to handle the overflow.

Well Dave, even if Jack hasn't shot anyone so far, at least we got to see a nice explosion out of this episode.

whoa!... satellite parabolics and a laser aggregator and they still fall for the old switch-cars-in-the-tunnel routine.

Yep. That's it for TerrorMom. Just as I expected.

Did they just shoot Carole Channing?

BTW - is this a blog record for updates?

im not sure if they did.....most of the bad stuff is happening to Jack now....

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that that's not the first preview that showed Jack being "killed".

Yep. Carol Channing is shot. Plus, judging from the scenes from next week's episode, Terror kid is really going to need his shovel.

The local news anchors have just said the following for the ten o' clock hews:

"Next, find out why a shopping mall easter bunny was arrested."

hews=news

Oh, don't worry, Angie. It takes a lot more than death to stop Jack Bauer.

Dave, I want you to bring your column back.

Happy birtday, scat!

We are very alert. Sorry to hear about your dog, scat.

What? Oh, I mean bird. My bad.

So they use the satellite parabolics and the laser aggregator and still fall for the old switch-cars-in-the-tunnel routine.

How about the look of awe on the probably dead Terror Mom's face as she watched Jack perform field surgery on himself? Though they totally would have bought it if he had whacked off one of the family jewels...

Didn't he do that two seasons ago, phil?

So hard to keep track....

This is way off the thread but did you read the book THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN? I don't have any other email address for you and I think you should read it.

Yes, Irene, yes I did. Don't know who you were talking to, but thought it would be good to make it clear from my end.

I think Dave is the only person watching 24 now.

Scat, hopefully, you'll have a better birthday than mine, when Dave Barry announced he was taking a break.

I may never celebrate my birthday again. :-)

Doctor "your husband will be paralized"
Romantic Plot Eliment "sob"
Heller "This might be a bad time, but the president called and I have to go now"

Holy crap, is that a lot of updating! I want whatever energy drink did that to Dave.

Didn't see tonight's ep, but at least I have Dave's update. And I now know Terror Boy is still alive and (relatively) well.

The Blog is 8th on google when searching for:
24 "Jack Bauer" meltdown

That's good, Marvin.

The Blog is first for "Jack Bauer" Carol Channing and "Jack Bauer" shovel

To the horror of all here I must admit that I like this show. I'm willing to suspend disbelief in order to experience the impression that there is a busy and relatively competent government agency somewhere, one that would tolerate a maverick in its ranks and is populated with people good looking enough to act in Hollywood. Also, without the suspension of disbelief, I'd somehow have to learn to like reality tv. As for Carol Channing/Peter Lorre being murdered (and I still marvel at the accuracy of that description, whoever it was that made it) we don't know she's dead. We do know that someone shot in her direction, though the results were behind a wall.

Welcome, tropichunt.com guy!

Wow! Watching TV and blogging, way to multi-task there Dave!

Imhoterrorist was hotter as Imhotep.

The partially bald head really holds no candle to the totally bald head. In accordance with the prophesy, as it were.

Sam G.: so why was the easter bunny arrested at the shopping mall? CTU wants to know!

Come on, guys, how weak was that? Are yuou going to tell me as soon as the car went into the tunnel Tony wasn't thinking "here comes the old change the car for a panel truck switch"? He really is slipping.

And when is someone going to kill Audrey, who makes you yearn for the return of Kim?

And Chloe smirking at Edgar and being childishly snotty was a definite highlight, right after Jack -- obviously bored because he didn't get to shoot anyone yet -- pig-sticking himself.

Irene: I read it too.

scat: Happy Birthday!

Notice how it took Chloe only 3 MINUTES to get to work after she was called back, managing to change clothes, do her hair and makeup, and travel to CTU in the span of a 3 minute commercial break.

And, why in heavens name are the rescue teams always 10 minutes away?

Maybe Terror Mom hasn't been shot. With this show you can't trust someone's death without actually seeing the bullet enter their bodies. Maybe I'm just in denial.

I do not think terror mom is dead either...why would they withhold a nice shooting scene from us? It would/might have had a nice emotional effect on us to see poor terror mom shot, twice.

Terror Mom is dead, and it looks like Head Terror Guy wants Terror Boy in exchange for Jack (if we can believe the "next week on 24" scenes). He wants to have one of those Terror Shovels.

More likely, Terror Boy is in deep Terror Doo Doo for jeopardizing the whole Terror Plot.

When is Edgar going to realize that his Mom took her own life and that radiation DIDN'T get as close to her as they originally thought it would? Last week they said that that fallout wasn't as widespread as they originally thought. Nasty.

Terror Mom definately screwed up though. She should have shot behind Jack, and when the gun went off, she should have turned it on Head Terror Guy.

Good for you, too, Jeff !!

Thanks, Irene, many times.

Good thought, Steve, except for one thing: the gun was empty, remember?

Alas, Jeff, I did not find out why the easter bunny was arrested. Being a kid, I had to go to school today, so my mom made me go to bed.
Also, I think Steve meant that Carol Channing should have kinda shot and missed over his head, and make it look like an accident or something. That way, if it had a bullet in it, it would have missed him, and if it didn't it would look like she tried to shoot him. I think.

re: "sales event"

I believe George Carlin has a whole bit on extraneous words in our language.

(googles for a bit)

People add words when they want things to sound more important than they really are. "Boarding process." Sounds important; it isn't. It's just a bunch of people getting on an airplane! People like to sound important. Weathermen on television talk about "shower activity". Sounds more important than "showers." I even heard one guy on CNN talk about a "rain event". I swear to God, he said, "Louisiana is expecting a rain event." And I thought, "Holy sh*t, I hope I can get tickets to that!"

Yup, that's exactly what I meant, Sam.

If the gun would have went off, she knew the thing was loaded, and could have shot Head Terror Guy. If it didn't go off, Head Terror Guy would have known she tried to shoot Jack, and Carol would have been fine....probably.

Of course, this whole idea comes crashing down if there was only "one" bullet in the gun.

check out what you get when you google "kiefer lorre"; maybe the Terror Mom actress got the part because she impressed executive producer Kiefer with her Peter Lorre impression

and Dave's blog is #1 for "lorre channing" search results (just 2 words)
