So since Amanda is out on the Social Media Week town, I’m going to try my hand at my own 24 live-blog. First, I have to dinner though. So I’ll pick up 24’s Golden Hour — when the real time matches 24 time — in a few minutes. Stay tuned.
Previously on the Renee Show…
I really hope the CTU Agent Starbuck storyline gets wrapped up or further developed this week. I’m so tired of it.
The following takes place between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m…. Yes. Yes, it does.
9:04 p.m.: Bubba is the worst CTU head. He’s clueless. How did these folks get jobs this year? It’s a bad economy; CTU applications should be way up.
9:06 p.m.: Breaking into a police locker to get your former boyfriend $120,000? Sounds like a great move for the future of your career, Starbuck.
9:09 p.m.: Watching Jack listen to Renee is not exactly the old Jack Bauer I had in mind before this season started.
9:10 p.m.: 12th and Market St.? Are we are in New York or somewhere else? Geography, people, geography!
9:11 p.m.: Lot of potential action at around 9:40. Starbuck’s going to meet her ex-con boyfriend, and Jack will be arriving to buy uranium from the Russians.
Commercial Musings: Who’s more desperate for movie work: Tracy Morgan or Bruce Willis?…
9:16 p.m.: Sark is going to perform a one-man bone marrow transplant. Let’s see it.
9:17 p.m.: Jack Bauer is probably the prime candidate for a iPad. Imagine not needing a laptop hooked up to a satellite internet feed while in the field. Secret agent extraction? There’s an app for that.
9:20 p.m.: I’m starting to suspect that 24 Season 9 will focus around Renee. She’s become a more intriguing character than Jack. Although, talking a shower in the lair of the guy who tried to rape you a few years ago — maybe not the best idea.
9:22 p.m.: So their plan is to meet with the “buyer,” kill him and kidnap Renee? For a bunch of Russian mobsters, that’s a plan more worth of CTU Head Bubba Hunch than the 24 baddies.
Commercial Musings #2: Since I’m sure you’re all wondering, this Rotisserie chicken from La Taqueria is really hitting the spot. The marinade is fantastic, and the meat’s really moist. Anyway….
9:26 p.m.: Clearly Madam President didn’t watch how President Slumdog Millionaire dealt with his game show contestants. Who’s surprised by these human rights violations?
9:29 p.m.: Arrest her! Arrest her! Arrest her! “It’s next on my list after robbing evidence holding cell. I’ll clear up your hard drive space after that.”
9:30 p.m.: Nerd fight! Chloe and the guy staring at her ass are totally going to get into it soon.
9:32 p.m.: Now would be a great time for the CTU swat team to arrested White Trash Boyfriend. He’s right outside the front door.
9:33 p.m.: Uh, oh. It’s Week 2 of 24: SVU. I really hope this ends OK for Renee.
9:37 p.m.: This is a very dark side of 24. Very dark.
9:39 p.m.: Great for the peace process — arresting the guy trying to placate the British ambassador to the U.N. President Slumdog is not winning any genius awards anytime soon.
9:41 p.m.: It would be quite a twist if the other country’s president were disposed of instead of the U.S. president. 24 goes through more U.S. presidents than CTU heads, it seems.
9:42 p.m.: I would have guessed that Sark was going to kill the doctor, not this other guy who somehow managed to find them amidst the doctors in New York. HIPAA violation!
9:44 p.m.: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! THOSE GLASSES!!!! WOW. Jack Bauer is the talented Mr. Ripley.
9:46 p.m.: So all you have to become German is don some thick-framed glasses. Good to know.
Commercial Musings #3: So..sick…of Howie Long’s cop hair. Enough.
9:53 p.m.: I hope Renee kills Vlad in the most painful possible way. She definitely has it in her.
9:55 p.m.: Jack Ripley better have a good trick up his sleeve….And it’s Freddie Prinze, Jr., the sharpshooter.
9:55 p.m.: Hey-o! We get a Jack Bauer “NOW!” just under the 10 p.m. wire. Everyone drink.
9:56 p.m.: Please do not end this hour with the Starbuck story. Please do not end this hour with the Starbuck story. Please do not end this hour with the Starbuck story.
9:59 p.m.: Yup. I didn’t expect Sark to get shot their either. Obvious “twist” ending. Anyone want to bet that Sark turns on Dad now?
10:00 p.m.: Short hour. Three minutes of “Previously on 24″ and three minutes before 10 p.m. That’s a wrap though. With Starbuck’s White Trash ex on the way to rob an evidence warehouse and Jack on his way to rescue Renee, next week should be an action-packed episode after two weeks of exposition.
