Smart Jean Smart

Another 24 Blog
So what did you all think about this week?
The First Lady was great as usual. Is she limo-riding her way to her demise? I think not! I think Lynn is feeling a wee bit anxious about "misplacing" his key card. Can we say misplaced aggression?

The Mall Threat

I must say, that I liked this week much better than last week -- especially watching Jack deal with the ethical dilemma inside the mall.

I also like how Audrey seemed to make a harsh criticism of theoretical utilitarian philosophy!

But Dick says this episode was slow compared to last week.

What do you think?

How can this be?

I actually have to say that I was bored with Monday's show. That is the first time ever that I can unfortunately say that.

Someone, show me how I am wrong and that I am missing something really important here.

Am I that much in need of guts, blood, and torture that when I actually see a 24 show that has dialogue and serious plot development, that I complain.

Someone throw me a bone here and enlighten me!

Home Again!

Once again, I find myself in the comfortable terrain of having an external enemy to hate, as portrayed by 24. I was getting a little squeemish with this whole "5th Column" - traitor withing - who's the mole? - etc., type of mental game that Jack and his cohorts were playing on us. It required way too much national self-examiniation.

And, since not letting the Cold War die seems to be a national pasttime, as if evidenced by our current military buildup, I am so happy to once again be hating those punk-ass Russians! They and their vodka, and demagoguery, and nasty haircuts! Bring on the traditional badguy! That will tell Putin in not so subtle ways that we're getting sick of his invasions into the land of democratic self-rule!

I am possessed with the fact that 24 is actually an ongoing allegory as to upcoming foreign policy measure made by the Bush Adminstration. Its kinda like in a Beautiful Mind when John Nash is convinced that the defense department is using him to uncode a secret message out there in newspapers. This time, its Condolezza Rice (instead of Ed Harris) who keeps visiting me in my dreams (don't tell Leen) and is telling me what parts of 24 are actually code for Bush's next foreign policy broohaha. Stay posted!

Here's Condi's revelation from the last show: Cummings is actually Don Rumsfeld!
