he's gotta be larger than life...



The fifth season of "24" started on UK television this evening.

I'm pleased to be able to report that it is as spectacularly silly as ever. Two things appear certain:

1) Jack Bauer's position as the world's ├╝ber alpha male will be secure

2) I will be hopelessly addicted to this nonsense for the next six months.

Helicopters! Explosions! Assassinations! Terrorists! Conspiracies!

Run Kim! Run!

Stupidly implausible? Yes. Brilliantly compelling? Undoubtedly.

May God bless America and all who sail in her.

    thanks for stopping by morris. It's always nice to have comments from people who feel the need to put a direct link to their own blogs in their comments.

    ST-- I say we send Jack Bauer after Morris! I LOVE 24 and I'm so happy you're a fan!!! Although we're a few hours ahead of you over here, so my lips are sealed. We'll have to gossip about it when the season is done.

    My Monday night crushing on Jack is enough to make me forget all other less deserving men (at least while he's in my sight!)

    Oh, See, now Morris came by and insulted me too. I thought I was special.

    You think we could ask morris to get lost?

    Anywho...I'm not a fan of 24. Ah, well. To each his own right?

    I was up 'til 07:00 on Saturday morning watching series 4. I much prefer waiting til the whole thing is out on DVD, then putting on a big pot of coffee & box of jaffa cakes for a right old binge.

    Think i still have two boxes of Jaffs left, so its back home tonight to try and slog through the rest of it.

    It's good to lose yourself in some nonsense now and then. In fact, I'd say it's fucking moronic not to. ;)

    I'm not a fan...somehow I can tolerate watching something outrageous if it has a supernatural theme, but I couldn't sustain this one. I did love the first season, though.

    I've never seen a single episode of 24. Does that make me Morris?

    When can we expect the fridge pictures? All this talk about refrigerators resulted in a massive grocery shopping trip for me yesterday...

    Hey Aravis- Morris showed up again today at my place too...this is annoying.

    So do you like all spy shows ST? How about Alias. Did you ever watch the X-Files. [not a spy show, per se, I know...]

    Alecya- same here. I'm ignoring. And I know you didn't ask me, but I love Alias. *G*
