GOP Mike’s “24” Premiere Review – A Liberal’s Horror!!!

To my Conservative Friends:

The much anticipated return of 24 starring Kiefer Sutherland had its 2-night, 4 hour premiere this week and for our bed-wetting, terrorist-coddling friends on the left side of the buffet table, it could not come at a worse time as the Messiah’s coronation as Prophet-in-Chief is all but hours away as the looney bleeding-hearts count down every second with unrivaled anticipation…

Barry and the Appeasers in DC are set to turn back the clock on fighting terrorism to September 10, 2001 as he has plans to all but gut our Anti-Terrorism efforts President Bush and his administration have tirelessly worked 7 years to create. Last week, he said he plans on keeping his campaign promise to close Gitmo. Don’t worry though, keep an eye out for the most dangerous, hate-filled terrorists coming soon to a prison near you…

Also, as I wrote in my article last week, he has appointed a spineless, American-blaming surrender-monkey as head of the CIA and all his politically-correct, ACLU-revering partners in Congress are planning on tearing the Patriot Act a new A–Hole the second they get their grimy fingers on the keys to the White House….

So now that Barry has made you feel all warm and fuzzy about our safety from the bad guys, here comes Jack Bauer and the premiere of 24….. The new season appears to be promising and the premiere gave us a lot of highlights and a few minor gripes…..

Jack is back and not only is he kickin’ ass and takin’ names, he’s got a lady FBI sidekick who not only shares his passion for deep-cavity searches of terrorists, but she is real easy on the eyes (she reminds me of my wife)…. Agent Renee Walker (aka. Actress Annie Wersching) demonstrated in the 4-hour premiere of Season 7 that the ladies aren’t takin any shi- from the bad guys either… And if they have some info she needs, let’s just say she’s gonna do more than blow sweet nothings in their ears to extract the info – The hard way!!

In one scene where a terror suspect was in critical condition on his hospital bed, Agent Walker grabbed the breathing tube of the prick and cut off the guy’s air supply to get him to fess up… Man, if she tells her husband to take out the trash, my advice to him would be to – Get on it Man, forthwith!!

My only gripe would be Walker’s assistant is the communist hand-wringing, ACLU-loving Janeane Garafolo from bankrupt liberal talk-radio station Air-America. And the character Garafolo plays appears to be similar to her socialist self in a lot of ways… Well, hopefully, she’ll turn out to be the mole inside the FBI and Jack can torture her to admit that Barry wears pink underwear!!

The President, Allison Taylor, in the new season is also a female, however she is shaping up to be more like a Sarah Palin, take-no prisoners type than the spineless lib President Logan in prior seasons… The basic premise of the season is the President’s decision to either negotiate with the terrorists and call back the troops ready to invade their country or not negotiate with them and allow them to use a stolen CIP system firewall unit that controls the Nation’s major operating systems (i.e. water supply, air-traffic, etc…) A classic no-win 24 Dilemma…

The President’s John Kerry/French looking Husband Henry appears to have a large role in the new season. Henry seems obsessed with investigating his son’s suicide/murder and all of it appears connected to the plot line of the invasion of Sengala (a fictitious Nation in Africa). Couldn’t have Pakistan or some Middle-Eastern Country – That would offend the Muslims… Can’t have that… But the Africans – Ahhhh they won’t mind… Gripe #2…


To the liberals delight, CTU has been disbanded and is under investigation. The best scene in the whole premiere was 10 minutes in with Jack testifying in front of some liberal, out-of-touch defeatocrat Senator when he told him what a bed-wetting softie he was and he did not regret any of the techniques he has used to protect this country… Classic Jack to the liberals dismay…. The Senator was played by That 70’s Show Star Kurtwood Smith (who plays the Father, Red) who mysteriously bears a striking resemblance to a Senator we may know.

The Premiere also had the return of Tony Almeida (from the dead…) and Bill Buchanan and Chloe from CTU which will will give the season some sort of continuity as they run a rogue CTU operation out of what appears to be a church attic somewhere in Washington…

The interrogation scene with Jack trying to get info from a terrorist where Walker tells Jack to do “Whatever it takes” to get the info was real powerful as the ever-resourceful Jack grabs a Bic-pen and almost sticks it in the guy’s eye before he agrees to spill the beans… The terrorist had worked with Jack in the past so he knew not to screw around and just cop his plea… Jack has become like the 1980’s version of Mike Tyson where his mere appearance in the room makes his opponents throw in the white towel before he has to lay a glove on them…. Man, Jack is the man!!!

The premiere goes on to get more complicated as more story lines are thrown in to set up the season and develop the characters and plot-lines for the next 20 hours. For instance Jack and Tony are now undercover and embedded with the terror group as they passed themselves off as disgruntled American Operatives out to settle a score with the country for doing them wrong… And there was no mention of Jack’s old flame Audry, which I am sure will change as either she or Jack’s daughter will come into play sometime this season…

Overall, I would say the premiere was excellent but not great. I give it 4 stars (out of 5)…I am sure the rest of the season will, at times, reach the highest bar in my ratings meter.

My predictions are we have not seen the last of what I hope to be many interrogation scenes and terrorist whacking moments that should make our sanctimonious, criminal-pampering tree-huggers in the country wringing their hands and thanking their secular superiors that Barry, and not Jack, is running the show now…. To bad we could not have had another option this past November…

May God help us….

Just my thoughts…
