Tremendous Upside w/ Dave & Niraj

More 24 talkTV - 24
Earlier today I was reading an article on TVSquad called "Six Reasons Why '24' Has Jumped the You-Know-What" and I was thinking about how we just listed most of those points last week.

Well, for this week's episode they decided to out-do themselves. As if those previous points weren't enough, there were a bunch of unbelievable lapses in logic. Starting with the most obvious, Renee stabbed Jack in the gut. Stabbed. Quickly. Forcefully. As expected, Jack fell over. But seconds later, he is able to prop himself up and fling the knife, the one that was lodged in his stomach, into a guy's neck across the room. And then a couple of minutes after that, he puts a gauze pad on it, after which he is running around like nothing happened for the rest of the episode. Bullshit.

Next up, air surveillance. Ok, so they didn't see vehicles leave the building with Jack. Wouldn't it be obvious that they could not have gotten very far? They were on foot in a tunnel, so they couldn't have even gone half a mile to get in that SUV, which is still in the middle of a GIANT, DARK, EMPTY AREA with its bright headlights. Can't CTU's "aerial coverage", I don't know, ZOOM THE FUCK OUT to spot nearby vehicles? It's not rush hour in the middle of downtown.

Renee didn't get found in the closet. BS. Super lame.

Jack "knew" the guys that came in wouldn't shoot him. How did he know anything about them, aside from the fact they came to check on Vlad? They could easily have shot him before realizing he may have information.

Jack just runs out assuming CTU has arrived, without a gun or weapon. Since when did Jack become as stupid as the other CTU agents? The real Jack Bauer would never trust any situation. He'd sure as hell have a gun at all times.

And finally, the usual
Dana and the warehouse robbery. Don't care.
Hassan, his daughter and his assistant/lackey. Don't care.
White House and peace process. Don't care.

Which all leads me to my conclusion:
I'm going to stop watching this season of 24. Maybe I'll go back and watch the first 5 seasons, and simply pretend that the other seasons don't exist.

    I don't agree with the TV Squad article and I'll continue to watch. It's not captivating like it was when we first started watching, but I don't think it's gone downhill that much.

    I mean I am fast-forwarding through the White House scenes but I thought it was pretty awesome when Jack flung the knife from his stomach into that guys neck.

      I certainly didn't agree with all of it. For instance, I don't think Jack's taking a backseat to all the action.

      That said, I just haven't been enjoying it that much, so it didn't take much to make me quit this season.

        jack throwing the knife into the guy's neck was awesome. i've stopped watching it like i used to, but it's still funny. and my roommate and i are having fun trying to predict what's going to happen or how long it will take before jack kills somebody.

        however, many of the plots are boring. basically, any scene without jack or chloe is unwatchable. especially dana walsh. so far, she hasn't had anything to do with anything.

        if you're watching the show for logic, you'd be better off watching lost.
