Episode 16 Recap Delayed

Sorry gang. Only because of my love of college basketball, I probably won't be doing my recap tonight. I'll get it done as soon as I can, though. So keep checking or just subscribe to the site's RSS feed.

In the meantime, I came across an article on Zap2it.com that talked about how episodes of 24 are filmed. While that was the boring part, at the end of the article they talked about having to come up with a new threat for season seven.

With a seventh season looming, "24" will have to come up with a new threat facing the nation. In the past, there have been Middle Eastern extremists, Russian rebels, Mexican drug lords, angry Chinese (Jack did kill someone in their embassy) and individual bad folks of all sorts.

"We are absolutely evenly employing all the bad guys of all nations," Cassar says. "Some told me, because I'm Canadian, they said, 'Hey, why are you leaving us out? Why can't we be the bad guys?' I'm like, 'Good idea. Quebec separatists could be the terrorists.'

"I'd like to go after the Nazis, but they're not around."

What possible dumb enemies could they come up with?

Update...
Uh-oh! It looks like even the media is starting to catch on to 24's lousiness this year.

Maybe a home-based threat could be interesting. Like some sort of Montana militia attacking the government, or a pollitical summit of some sort. It could be good, if properly written (which it wouldn't be, 'cause this is 24).

Actually, an inside the country plot might be fun. But NO outside influence. It can't turn out to be some elaborate plot hatched by the Chinese, Russians AND Polish.

The show is on right now. Why is Karen Hayes voting with the cabinet? As national security advisor, she is NOT in a cabinet-level position.

I was going to make the same point, Jonk. A simple visit to Wikipedia would have ben all the fact-checking they needed.
