The Universe and Me

24: 4 - 5 a.m.

Previously on 24: Jack asks the question the entire free world has been wondering: “What do you want to change?” and Marwan answers that his only goal is destruction. Yeah, that’ll help him and “his people” lots. Though wounded, Marwan’s one slick and slippery dude and manages to escape sleepy CTU’s clutches. But at least Curtis survives another shootout. Call me surprised. Chloe checks Marwan’s cell phone records and voila! Liberal Son called him last week. Jack’s salivating at the prospect of another chance to torture someone, anyone, but dear old Department of Defense Dad brings in the tough love and manages to make son confess he was in the closet with a couple who he let use his phone. With father issues like this, Liberal Son may find himself stranded on the Island of “Lost” yet. Who else besides me expected the words “with Allstate” to follow “he’s in good hands” when presidential advisor dude was speaking about Palmer helping Logan? So Audrey would have been happy to skip today? I would have been happy if she had too. Apparently Jack never told her the extent of his past work. Oh Tony, you really should have switched the channel from Telemundo soccer to “Days of our Lives” because then you’d know that anytime a character makes up with an estranged partner and they decide to leave and start anew, it is the kiss of death for one of them. In the words of Terrorist Babe Mandy (just back from previous seasons for more fun and games, and shooting), “It’s gonna be you.” Now we have a hostage situation and Michelle has to hold her breath for an entire week. Thanks a lot. Next up: Jack and I go out for pizza. Or a two hour special finishes up Season 4.

    Oh no, the last show of the season? What am I going to do for entertainment all summer? Maybe you could run re-runs of your old 24 episode commentaries.
