Re: 24: Jump the shark?
I thought last week was silly.
Where to begin? How about that silly love-puppy Dubaku? Or Jack (once again) resorting to threatening loved ones and children (where's the originality in that?)? Or the "It's IN him - not ON him!" Or maybe the fact that this ultimate priceless piece of hardware gets handed over to a COMPLETE stranger (to Jack) on the street for delivery. Sure - I was screaming at the TV by this point.... but the best was yet to come:
You walk into a room where all the hard-drives have just been sabotaged. Two people in the room; one dead and the other wounded. The one guy tells you exactly how it went down, and you're okay with it. How about "IT"S A FUCKIN' CRIME SCENE AND NOBODY MOVES; NOBODY TOUCHES ANYTHING" and you secure the scene? Especially given that you've been told again and again your department has been compromised. FBI????!!??!?! Besides, how soon would it have been before the forensics teams would have nailed this half-assed plot?
And oh yeah - Chloe's secret restoration trick. Uh-huh.
I swear - this season, they aren't even trying.
Oh! Just how many times in this series must Jack endure anybody and everybody bashing it over his head about his dead wife - give the guy some proper respect, people! Jeeze!!
