We thought it already was a spoof.

(Thanks to many people)

Heh, 'Airplane like'. That would be awesome. It would be even better if they pulled it off well.

"There was one scene where I was scaling the wall of the Chinese embassy and the dart gun in my holster fell out in the dark and went off and shot me in the a** halfway up the wall.
I'd pay to see that.


I vote for the musical.

(This makes 18 posted articles by either Dave and/or Judy in one day. Is that a record?)

I loved Airplane!, but a 24 Airplane starring Kiefer? Scary...

Hey - if you spoof a spoof, it gets menippian, doesn't it?

Shirley, they are kidding.


Can I just buy the blooper reel?

No it's not over...and please stop calling me Shirley.

What they really need is some site for source material. One that offers real-time comedic commentary as the show progresses. Wonder where they could find that?

qetzal- Two robot puppets and Greg. Stuck in a space station to watch 24 and know the mistakes.

Jack Baeur: "Wait I can't remember whats going on. Better check the blog and catch up."

Lisa, I am with you on the musical thing. Life in general would just be so much more fun (not to mention much more bizarre) if everytime there was a key moment in your life, someone would burst into song.

Spiny Norman, you have the best handle EVER. "DINSDALE!!"

What's with all this "24" stuff, anyway?

I don't even know what the show's about. I just remember hearing something about it and thinking I wouldn't like it, but now everyone's like "oh, I have to get home and watch 24!" and "wow, last night's episode was great", it seems everyone watches this thing.

Not that this guarantees that it's good...everyone was obsessed with The Sopranos, but even when I did watch that I didn't find it worth the trouble...but it does make me wonder if I'm missing something entertaining.

Looks like I picked a bad week to stop smoking.
Looks like I picked a bad week to stop shooting people in the thigh.

There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

"And Edgar is getting laaaarrrgger!"

A prize to the first person who can write a song for "24, The Musical"!

*Inspects contents of pockets for prize*
*Finds Kleenex and lint*

Okay, um . . . a big pat on the back to the first person who can write a song for "24, The Musical"!

♫ Key of G ♫
*Sudden rush of writters block!*

I could see it happening but Dick Chenney would have to be involved.

"I have 24 hours
I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't even take a pee

I have 24 hours
The people of the world
Need to be saved
And all I want todo
Is hurl

Who did the president kill
Who is the spy
who is the evil mastermind
I got to find out

"I have 24 hours
I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't even take a pee

Please some one save
This world
I am getting tired
Of shooting people down

this is the best idea since Snakes on a Plane!

Bravo, Alfred! Shall I Fed Ex your pat?

Assume crash positions.

Nicole-I'm trying to think of all the songs that would fit, but all I can come up with is "Someone's Knocking at the Door!"

I hope the movie's titled "2" or even "1:45"... a good comedy's gotta be tight...

fo' shizzle my sizzle

does anybody know how to fly an idea for a spoof
tv show?

If I knew Englishman. I would be doing it right now. I mean I got the theme song. And people that know the show and its jokes like... A trekkie knows Star Wars.

Nice move, Kiefer. You're now the proud owner of 2,874 really bad spec comedy scripts coming your way....oh, and mine, of course!

"Welcome to Hertz Rent-a-car, how may I help you?"
"The name's Bauer....Jack Bauer."
"'Bow-wow? Jack Bow-wow?' Is that hyphenated?"
"No, Bauer. B-a-u..."
"Sir, if you want me to help you, you're going to have to speak up."
"I can't. I'm undercover."
"And obviously new to the job? I'm guessing you're a government employee..."
"Would you please hurry? I'm trying to catch a bad guy, and I only have 41 minutes, not counting commercials."
"I'm so happy for you, but you're still going to have to spell your last name for me."

Let's call it "42" - facing his 42nd birthday, an actor has only a year to make it big in his father's business before becoming known as a drunken, rabble-rousing, hyphen-abusing, bad-boy has-been.


Make the clock the dial-type going backwards.

Dear Blog,

Jack Bauer is a big flower.


Chuck Norris

/sorry, i got nothin'

Have you ever seen a grown man naked?


I thought that George & Donald were already a couple of years into production on it...

Early morning *SNORK* at Annie WBH.

Annie-Trouble sleeping?

The only "spoof" of 24 worth doing (although probably not worth watching) would be one that stitched together all the minutes that happen during the commercials: bathroom breaks, naps, rebooting the computer, looking for your car keys, making coffee, reloading your gun, etc.

On the other hand, they could create an entire parallel second series called "24/7" that shows every minute of every day of Jack Bauer's life, including flossing his teeth. (Sorry if this idea has been floating before but I'm fairly new to the 24 party.)

The only thing holding up the spoof is that they're waiting on the clearance from Clarence, right Roger?

They're still awaiting a vector from Victor also. And their car was towed away for being parked in the red zone.

Would Kiefer even be allowed to play the movie version of Jack Bauer? I thought there was some sort of law that Charlie Sheen had to star in any spoof film.

(think the Ramones)
Twenty, twenty, twenty four hours to go
The USA's been invaded!
So much to do
And no time to 'go'
I'm always constipated!

So point me at the bad guys
And let the bullets fly
My morning vision's blurry but
I'll hit 'em in the thigh!
The CTU's as useful as a fish with hockey skates
oh no,oh no,oh no


Hmmmm....maybe Insom should actually try sedation?

Oh, yeah! I see no reason why the Airplane! style and a musical need to be mutually exclusive. Plus, with the musical idea, well, there's plenty of proven lyrical talent on this board. I see insomniac has addressed the issue of Jack's regularity. A companion song might address how he's only consumed food once in three years. Other titles: "Youll Just have to Trust Me," "I'll explain later, " C-H-L-O-E" and "Copy That" (you say our love is doomed, copy that. You can't abide my dark side, copy that.) Oh, this thread should be goooood.

Lay 'em down and smack 'em, yack 'em. or just shoot 'em.

A couple scenes where we're "suppopsedly" going to commercial and they "break character" could work. Or the "freeze frame" endings of Police Squad.

Isn't it a law that Leslie Nielsen has to, at the least, make a camio?

Leslie Nielsen could play a jeweler, sitting in his workshop, meticulously working on a brooch. What would he be doing? Why, making a cameo, of course!

*big snork* to Annie!

"Excuse me Stewardess, I speak jive."

Now I need to go home and watch this. Perhaps Top Secret or Real Genius since CSI is a repeat.


Shouldn't that be "Excuse me Stewardess, I speak bad accent terrorist" ?

As a very minor twist on the "24" theme, the Airplane-like "1:45" movie plot would address thwarting terrorist holy war plans to burn a cheese Danish because of outrage stemming from a cartoon image of Jack Bauer drawn by someone code-named "Sophie" that was published in a Miami-area elementary school newspaper. A duel with walrus oosiks will be worked into the story line of course, as will attacks by hordes of Brazilian Wandering Spiders, plus lobster and prawn smuggling will be part of the side plot. Loud snorking will eventually disable the terrorists' sophisticated electronic triggering devices with one second left in the countdown. As he is led to prison, defeated terrorist leader Barry Manilow will be quoted as saying: "Booger".

Mad, we're trying to spoof it, not kill it. ;)

Annie, be nice. I thought it was funny, MadSB :)

Sorry....guess I was just overwhelmed.

Mad S--Snork! Best one of the lunch hour so far.

You did leave out Shirley, however.

I would think a much more appropriate style would be in the NAKED GUN genre.

No, I remember now, that's where the idea for 24 was born, right?

"I'm sorry, but dogs aren't allowed on the plane. I'm afraid that we'll have to shot him in the thigh."
