Last night’s installment of 24 was rivetting, and sometimes too predictable. As LJStrata pointed out, now we know where Jack gets his dark, killer side. I could see his dad and brother in cahoots, so when his dad got nervous and killed his son I was not surprised. But it was still a bit of a shocking scene (Darth was never that cruel!). LJStrata has this uncanny insight to continuity and detail. She finds all sorts of little things that don’t fit scene to scene. She could not help but notice the syringe was left there with the father’s fingerprints on it, and I know these people keep a log of syrum used.
The whole thing about detention centers is pretty important I guess, but it sometimes distracts. I guess it does for me at least, because I tend to agree the idea of detention centers are a last resort. You would use martial law and curfews first because anyone could be paid off to kill Americans. Anyway, it is I guess a good debate, but I would wager America is no where close to even thinking along those lines. Live free or Die! And that means all of us. Only little dweebs need redcoats to find their enemies.
Anyway – looking forward to the two hour special next week!
