Jack Bauer Has Shot His Last Thigh

Fox cancels 24 after eight seasons. Dave Barry weeps. Say what you want about torture porn, but Season 5 — when ex-President Allstate gets killed in the first ten minutes, and Drunken First Lady tries to uncover hubby’s conspiracy — remains totally over-the-top awesome. [NYT]


How many really bad godawful miserable days can one have?

Oh well, more Seth MacFarlane cartoons now.

I enjoy good old TV with violence and drama so one would think that I would watch it, but I caught a few eps of S1 24 and it bored me. Never went back.

I watched the first few episodes of Season 1, then lost interest …

@ManchuCandidate: @blogenfreude: The only season worth watching is 5. It’s one of the finest television comedies of the millennium.

I seriously blame this show for making torture seem OK to the audience if it’s in a “good cause.” Glad to see it go. Talk about contributing to making evil banal.

Elite 8 T/J: Butler beats Kansas State by 7 although KS is way better on paper. Tough, tough defense got it for them in a low-scoring game. The Butler coach looks like he’s 10 years old.
