24

Tonight I am in Washington, D.C., engaging in intensive preparations for tomorrow''s inaugural parade, so I will not be able to help you ridicule analyze tonight's episode. But I'm sure you'll all do fine, down there in the comments section.

Here is the plot so far:

A terrorist group  working for the evil African Subplot General Dubaku has gotten hold of a top-secret CIP module that controls the entire infrastructure. Tony, who was dead for several seasons but recovered thanks to a hypothermic injection, has been working for the terrorists, and for a while he was actually bad, but then he became good again, but he pretended that he was still bad so that he could be an undercover agent, working with Chloe and Bill, who are basically in charge of national security, because everybody who works for the federal government is either a mole, or incompetent, or an incompetent mole. Once Jack realized that Tony was really good, he helped him escape from the FBI, which fired 127,763 rounds of ammunition at them, all of which missed.

Jack and Tony went back to the terrorists, who initially intended to kill Jack, but decided not to because it would be bad for ratings. So now Jack is also pretending to be a terrorist. At the end of last week, he and Tony and the rest of the terrorist gang were trying to kidnap Prime Minister Somebody, and I am frankly not sure why. Edgar is still dead, as is Roger, the deceased son of President Woman President and her husband, Mr. President Woman President, who has been pushing the Dead Son Subplot in such a whiny and irritating way that we're starting to wonder if he might be related to you-know-who.

Anyway, good luck to you all tonight. Be sure to stay tuned at the end for the plot summary by The Amazing Steve,

The comments seem kind of flaccid.

Dave,

Why in the hell would anyone in their right mind be within 100 miles of Washington, DC today or tomorrow (or actually anytime)?

DRINK!

Not yet?

SECOND!

Good question, largebill. I wish I weren't.

largebill, he's got to mow a lawn or something.

DRINK!

Cat - Drink whenever you like!

This hobby is getting more and more difficult to explain to my family.

Last week...

Mr R: "Is that guy an agent?"
Me: blank stare
Mr R: "Who are they after?"
Me: blank stare
Mr R: "What are you blogging about?"
Me: "Hell if I know. But you should try it. It's fun!"

Thank you, Diva. Typos be damned!

ooooh, preview commercial

"I will not back down!"

Isn't it scary when House starts advocating torture?

Ready to go...stay tuned!

Hi, Steve!

So...which Bruce Willis movie will the scriptwriters borrow from tonight, I wonder?

I hope it's Hudson Hawk.

Cassie, maybe he had a mindmeld with Jack Bauer. :-) Good "House" tonight. Maybe we should start blogging it too . . . only I guess there aren't enough perimeters.

I see dead terrorists?

Dr. House was scary even before he started advocating torture.

Howdy, Cat!

I'm a newbie but I wanted to share what I found on Youtube...

LET'S GET READY TO ROOOOOOOOOOOOOMBLE!

This "24" intro was brought to you by the rogue CTUs. Sing along now:

We were the CTU's so pity us!
The 'rists were smart; red tape was hideous!
We're gonna shoot and stab and spy around ("We're Bauer bound!")
We are the now rogue CTUs!

Hi everyone! Wine ready!

A tropichunt sandwich?

Dammit the local weather better not jump into 24 because we're forecast to have snow. Ha, in Virginia Beach, I'll believe it when I see it. Yes, I'm Scully when it comes to snow.

blah blah blah The African people no one cares about

And yet...Jack-Girl still intrigues me.

Aw, darn. Gen got in there. ;)

Emerson!

LOL @ Renee. So true.

Blah blah blah, obvious stuff. We've seen this. LET'S GET TO THIGH STABBING ALREADY!!

Pre-emptive PERIMETER drink. Just checking if the wine is properly decanted and all.

Cat, had the same experience. I have a convert here and while she's asking me deep plot points all I can tell her is, "She's the First Lingerie Model."

Yay, tropichuntguy!!!

reinforced concrete - HA!

Sentox baby, Sentox

You can't stop me, Suzy Q. Drink!

Will the terrorists stop for lunch, do you think?

Ok, I need some blood...STAT

OK, wait a minute: The plan was to kidnap Sudoku and deliver him to General Dooku...?

Must start paying more attention to the "plot." Such as it is...

Get ready, girls - he'll be exposing his men!! WHEEE!

Heh, they're "exposing his men".

"We'll use nonlethal force." Jack won't.

no, just commercials Tori

"Open the safe room."
He doesn't know the safe word.

Wine! *clinks glasses with Gennita*

Time to drink!! (I set my own perimeter)

Wouldn't it be great if Jack broke into the safe room and found......Jodie Foster????

[reference to her movie "Panic Room"]

Hi Siouxie!

You go right ahead, Siouxie. :)

Cheers, Suz!!

I wonder how they are going to get in! I bet the crack into the air and try to suffocate them!

Hey, let's look in the attic! Maybe there'll be a shower-like thing going into the panic room.

OY, with the freaking whispering again!

Erika... still think she's the evil mole

hey didn't that blonde play a ditz on some show?

FOUR MINUTES and not one gunshot! *fidgetfidget*

Hey, Sio! *clinks again*

"the AG needs you to shred docs so he can be approved by Congress."

Wow. Only five minutes of screen time since Agent Freckles tortured Tanner in his hospital room and they already issued a subpoena.

Fast work even for "24"...

"I questioned him." via the Jack Bauer Interrogation Way.

My response time will be compromised. My laptop is being worked on and I am stuck using my PC and a *gasp* regular kb!

I don't know what is happening to you, girl! You're turning into Jackie Bauer!

I was thinking that I wanted to torture him.

I'm also listening to an audiobook during commercial breaks here. This could end up being very confusing...or, it might improve the episode, actually!

Where the F is Jack?

Renee has gone rogue!!

"you get home now, young lady!"

...Aaaaannnnnd Agent Freckles has gone rogue!

I am no longer your Renee. I am Bauerized.

Suz, he's taking a much needed bathroom break.

Poor Man's Andy Garcia = Next Dead Hobbit

and maybe . . . . . .WHAT?

*shoots spammer in the thigh*

OMG, let him/them die! We needs us some gory deaths. preferably with lots of blood.

"Renee has gone rogue!"

I have??

Oh, right, there's a TV show involved here. I keep forgetting. Too bad -- I'd love to know what I was going to do in my rogue state!

NOT ENOUGH JACK

Why are they speaking in English?

"You would die before you expose them."
Dammit I want exposure now especially Jack and Tony.

she's so going to get her thigh shot.

You know, not every international incident refvolves around you.

YES! kill kill kill!

Dark Methos

Mr. Motobo! We're here to save/asphyxiate you!!!

You say Dubaku (sp?), I say Dooku...

"I am prepared to die, sir."
Ripping Jack's lines too?

Oh, the FBI's coming. That will guarantee his safety, all righht. Why, they'll probably even set up a perimeter.

Sangalablahblahblah

5,4,3

F*ck the people..he thinks...
