We’re at the midway point of 24: Live Another Day, and the guys hit on the show falling on old habits. Between moles, untrustworthy Presidential aides, people ruining Jack’s operation, and a Kim Bauer-esque bus accident, there’s plenty to break down. Ty, Drew, and Badway also score the alpha male showdown between Boudreau and Bauer, go over some internet chatter, and make some predictions on the second half of the season.
Jack Bauer has had many aliases over the years to conceal his true identity while performing clandestine operations. To his credit, he even landed Diane Huxley while under the assumed title of Frank Flynn. This is why he’s our hero.
Now, you can also create your very own, remotely-cartoonish alias just like Jack. We’re proud to introduce The Jack Bauer Alias Generator to the interwebs. Feel free to post your favorite (generated) names in the comments and share with friends.
None of these generated names is worse than “Ron Fairbanks”, we promise.
With episode three of 24: Live Another Day in the books, Ty, Drew, and Badway consider the parenting style of Margot Al-Harazi, Chloe’s heartbreaking family story, and how Jack really is a good shoulder to cry on. They also ponder Heller’s next step in the wake of Parliament’s outburst towards him, Adrian Cross’ snake-like charm, and Jack’s crafty way of inciting a mob. The guys additionally discuss the current Vegas betting lines for the show and the short-lived career of Ron Fairbanks.
In the aftermath of the two hour premiere of 24: Live Another Day, Ty, Drew, and Badway hash out many key points of the two episodes, including President Heller’s early bout with Alzheimer’s, “female Jack” Kate Morgan’s killer instincts, and Chloe and Jack’s daring escape from the CIA with the help of his mysterious Serbian friend and a QVC telescopic ladder. The guys also answer emails and tweets about the premiere, ponder the availability of Heller’s old man sweater, and try to calm Ty down after an epic rant over lax security in our government’s various headquarters. Jack is back.
As 5-5-14 approaches, Ty, Drew and Badway discuss Jack Bauer’s moral ambiguity, the various human rights violations of 24, top dead-end plot lines from the series, and debate the mountain lion population of California. The guys also break down FOX’s “Jack Is Back” segments (posted below), why James Heller is the perfect choice for the next 24 President, and whether the Live Another Day “Special Event” will pave the way for more seasons of our favorite show.
