Here is where we stand:

Last week Jack recruited Agent Freddie Prinze Jr. to the Rogue Team. They are now on their way to the safe house containing Agent Dana Walsh, where Jack intends to interview her regarding the role of the Russians in the whacking of Renee. Agent Walsh is currently being waterboarded by henchpersons working for President Woman President, who, at the urging of disgraced ex-President Complete Handbag, has gone over to the Dark Side to save the all-important Peace Procezzzzzzzzzz.

Edgar is still dead.

I will not be joining you tonight, as I'm starting the tour for my new book, which by the way is for sale so please buy it.

TRUE FACT: Several thousand times, I've had the following experience. A person will say to me: "Where can I buy your books?" This always strikes me as an odd question, but I try not to betray this in my facial expression as I answer: "In a bookstore." The person often seems surprised to learn this, as if he or she is thinking: "Huh! So THAT's what goes on in bookstores!"

Anyway, because of the book tour I won't be blogging 24 tonight or next week. So I will be counting on you folks to keep track of things down in the comments section. And of course we will all rely on The Amazing Steve to explain the plot to us afterward.

Meanwhile, here's a scientific poll:

What do you think will happen to President Woman President?
She will see the error of her ways and become good again.
She will remain evil.
She will actually have sex with ex-President Handbag.
Remember ex-President Handbag's ex-wife Martha? She was hot in a cougarish way.
I am still pondering the ketchup-refrigeration question from last week.

Ready to go!

Signing in early.

Just got back from work so I couldn't play the Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta that released today. It would be killer to play with or against Nathan Fillion.

Yes Jack Bauer pawns Halo... I think I just killed my gamer side... oh well.

Checking in as well. Hoping for more violence this week...

Can't wait to buy Dave's book on vacation in MPLS this week....

I will also mature when I'm dead....

Dave wrote a book? Anyone know where one could get this book?

My hardcore gamer side is crying just looking at the screenshots for Halo Reach.

*wonders if the perimeter set up in times square last night had anything to do with tonight's episode....or dave barry's nyc appearance...*

The perimeter in NY had nothing to do with 24. It did accomplish something after all.

And hello everyone.

Waves to everyone!

New Castle tonight!

Can we blog Castle or Burn Notice?

I have always wanted to comment on 24/this blog, so I guess I'd better get on it.
So, 1) now that Jack and Renee having sex will not be the climax, ahem, of the season and show, what's the point? 2) Remember when Julia Roberts almost married Kiefer Sutherland? 3) What have you got against Barry Manilow? and 4) Shouldn't we have a "best ending writing" contest or a "what would you like to see happen" outpouring? Don't we need closure or catharsis or something? Really.
What will we do without perimeters and PDA uploads?

Hi everybody!

I can't believe we only have three more weeks of 24 (assuming they run the last two episodes together, which they generally do).

Still hoping for an appearance by Aaron, but I'm not holding my breath.

Didn't Aaron end up with Martha?

Aaron WILL be back. He has to. Maybe he'll join Rogue Team.

Jack and Coke in hand. Let's do this.

Aaron's gotta show up. Come on, he's been in every season so far.

Checkin' in.

Hi, and bye! Sadly, I have a technology failure that won't allow me to watch and blog at the same time. I'll have to catch up later ...

trustf8, I have a source who will confirm that Dave owns a red shirt.

Just so everyone knows, I'm going to be very civic minded for the next few days by following our mayor's directive to conserve water. Henceforth, I'll be drinking only beer and wine until the Cumberland River recedes.

I'm with House: right before this show, I want painkillers washed down with whiskey!

You go in, find the President, bring him out in 24 hours, and you're a free man.
Call me "Snake."
Bad neighborhood, Snake! You don't want to be walking from the Bowery to 42nd Street at night. I've been driving a cab here for 30 years and I'm telling you: you don't walk around here at night! Yes, sir! Those Crazies'll kill you and strip you in ten seconds flat! Usually I'm not down around here myself, but I wanted to catch that show. That stuff is like gold around here, you know.
Good evening. Although I shall not be present at this historic summit meeting, I present this in the hope that our great nations may learn to live in peace...

*Michael Jackson's "Human Nature" begins playing*

Fanning out along 5th Avenue
One guy keeps a watchful eye
Heard a voice outside the door
Time for stabbing thighs...

Jack broke out into the daylight
Four walls only hold him part-time
In this town there is a bomber
Jack is ready to fight

When they ask, why, why? Shoot 'em in their private sections.
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
When they ask, why, why? Shoot 'em in their private sections.
Why, why does he shoot them that way?

Searching out to find the culprit
Aerial drones fly everywhere
See this guy, can't know who's watching
Shoot a missle over there...

When they ask, why, why? Shoot 'em in their private sections.
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
When they ask, why, why? Shoot 'em in their private sections.
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
Jack likes livin' that way...Jack loves killin' that way...

Peering out across the Hudson
This hoodlum's heart still is beating
Jutting out, Jack's hand's in his chest
(It's Jack's way of greeting)

When they ask, why, why? Shoot 'em in their private sections.
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
When they ask, why, why? Ooh, shoot 'em...
Why, why does he shoot them that way?

When they ask, why, why? Cha cha cha...
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
When they ask, why, why? Ooh, shoot 'em...
Why, why does he shoot them that way?

When they ask, why, why? Ooh, shoot 'em...
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
When they ask, why, why? Da da da...
Why, why does he shoot them that way?
Jack likes livin' that way...

This season's "24" intros are brought to you in memory of my dear friend Michael "Sparky" Bushaw, who passed away the day after this past Christmas. Sparky, my fraternity big brother, best man at my wedding and best friend for the last 20 years, was the one person with whom I watched "24" when it originally premiered on Fox. Always a fan of the show, I believe it fitting to dedicate this season in his memory. Rest in peace, brother...I miss you!

haha mitch

Are they STILL talking about the peace agreement? Can't they do a cabaret this week? Please?

Waterboard Starbuck! I want more.


Yes, a sting operation, the target is all of you guys, by Jack!

Hey, ya'll! Dances, we'll be missin ya.

Evening gang. I put down rubber sheets in anticipation of some waterboarding tonight. (Wonder what happens on the episode)

Dave, I have already purchased your book and can't wait to get it. I'm beginning to think they're making 24 less exciting each week so we won't miss it as much.

I miss the rods

Someone shoot her please...

"I know that my husband is watching us, and also wondering what the heck is going on."

she has huuuuuuge eyebrows


Hi everyone! *Yawn I hope I make sense tonight....I just got back not too long ago driving from Ohio. But then, who needs sense to watch Jack Bauer? :D

Even Handbag looks like he wants to puke...

Should work if you should pee yourself from too much excitement too, Sharkie ;-P

Touching speech by President Mary Kay

My husband wasn't perfect. In fact he wasn't even from IRK.

Has her husband discovered the real plot of the show once he got to the afterlife?

Golly ....the end justifies the means.

Well, we've still got Chekhov's assortment of assault rifles waiting to be used, homeybeef. Maybe.

Hi Gennita! Have lots of fun at RT? :-D

Slow start.

do they muffle ur f@rts too ms?

Dave's bookstore anecdote reminds me of when I was in London and trying to find Dickens's house. I asked a local where it was, and he said, "What do they do there?" I almost said, "Um, they used to write books there . . ."

Anyone notice a strange odor at CTU yet?

You call that waterboarding? Amateurs.

Are we really supposed to feel sorry for Dark Starbuck here?

"If you don't talk we'll pour even cheaper vodka on you!"

Starbuck in bondage!!!!!

Dave's getting sneakier and sneakier in hiding Barry Manilow. Dadgum his hide!!

I wonder if the FBI is watching this fine display of waterboarding?

I thought you're supposed to DUNK 'em in a bucket of water. Sheesh...this is NOTHING. wuss.

Hi Cassie! Yes, lots of fun! No thigh shootings or waterboarding, though. But we have our own ways of having fun>

"Splish splash, I wuz takin' a bath..."


Hey everyone!!! Hope y'all are good!

*suspends disbelief from a hanger in the closet*

Dana had a hand in that. Freckles could have fixed that.

Bend over, I'll show you.

Ever notice how no one yawns on this show--even though we do?

"You stole my hallow-points? Bastard! Hey, where's my iPad?!?!"

Let this be a lesson to you: Next time you waterboard somebody, be sure to lock the back gate...

I vote for Burn Notice next season.

Melissa Anderson... wasn't she on Little House on the Prairie and blind?

It;s ok, they'll get in, Jack knnows the bouncer.

I'll join y'all in Burn Notice. Gonna have to catch up over the next few months.

'the ambiguously gay duo...'

I hope Jack and Cole don't let one slip out...IYKWIM...

Burn Notice starts again on June 3.

^5 Cassie - GMTA! :D

*snork* @ trustf8!

When did Jack find time to get a haircut???

Jack is rogue -- he hit a guy with glasses!

Do we drink on takedowns ?

How is it this scene can be totally devoid of tension?

we're voting now? I vote for whatever ends up in this time slot. Why change our habits.

I'd have to say Tense Music #18 is my favorite song.

Just follow my unrehearsed hand-signal silently.

agreed kate

Cole you go first... you're my human shield.

Might want to LeDud. It's the only way we have a shot at getting any in.

The bromance here isn't the same as with Tony :(.

LOVE the funky background music.

Here, I'll hide behind this grate...no one can see me through it thanks to my mad ninja skills...

It must be a bullet proof door screen

That rooftop scene reminds me of a Spenser for Hire episode.

Tony... you still stuck in jail? Cole isn't as good as him.

tony was hot/ cole is not

That worked awesome. Jack should have order a hero sandwich for them as well!

Well, that wasn't very nice Jack!

Ah, better than thighs, testicles@!

Jack is no rogue - he has a class all his own with the blitzkrieg power of a paladin, the stealth of a rogue, and the spellpower of a warlock.

"He won't take that s...."

nice shot!! DRINK!!

Never tell Jack not to take a shot. Ask Curtis.

Jack's mother told him to drop his gun once...once.

You caught me monologing!

So the wedding is still on?

Hey guys, I'm all for blogging another series, but it has to be as bad as the last couple of years of 24. Ortherwise, I might actually wanna watch it instead of typing...

Why is he rescuing Dana?

What is this odd tingly feeling? Oh right -- it's been that long since I saw violence. . .

Like they thought Jack "wouldn't dare" shoot...

...And I can't believe they fell for that lame "sniper fire" story of Jack's. You would have thought they could hear gunfire, especially with the door being open and all...

Jack's the best shot in all five boroughs
