24 update

Caught up with the latest series. In which Jack gets on board an airplane by disguising himself as luggage and Chloe gets a stun gun.

87% of 24 is Made for Gays.
The other 13% (inane torture) is just there to reassure straight men that they're not watching something poofy.

I've not seen any of Day 5 yet but just from that it sounds smashing. I spent Saturday watching Day 4 in 18.5 hours.

I'm not sure which 87% you mean - surely 24 isn't that gay? I watched some late Blake's 7 afterwards and that was 99%.

Now Will, I see your argument... yes, Blake's 7 is the CAMPEST THING ever made by the BBC.

But, it's not gay. Not in the least. Is there a single shaggable man in there? Is there?

No Will, no there isn't. All the women are fuck-me fabulous. All the man are old, fat and weirdly balding. Apart from Stephen Pacey.

Day 5 was an awful lot of fun, but by now the formula is really starting to show. Glad you're enjoying the DVDs :)

By the way, does anyone else agree that Chloe and Mrs Logan should get their own spin-off - The mad Women of 24 Investigate? Their nemesis can be a cybernetically reconstructed Sherry Palmer.

Will said...

Ah, yes, campest and gayest. Two different things. You're quite right.

So, is Day 5 just full of butch totty with guns, or are there other ways in which it is the Big G?

24 is camp and sexy. Like sweet and sour sauce (only not as orange), it's the perfect mix of macho and minx.

You've got ridiculous women on wheels (why don't they make fag hags like Mrs Logan?)... but you've also got quite a lot of background totty.

If you look closely, even the terrorists are getting a bit more woof! every year.

And, frankly, if you woke up to find Kiefer lying on top of you, whispering "Trust me!" in your ear... well, you would, wouldn't you?

Apart from anything else, you've met Jack Bauer. This means you're about to die. So you may as well have a last go.

I'm not convinced that 24 is that tottyrific, especially for an American show. Though that lad that Chloe pulled in on the night before the first episode was a bit of a dish. And he got his shirt of and everything! It's comforting to know that a complete lack of social skills is no barrier to pulling pretty men - though of course, I lack Chloe's proficiency with a machine gun, so may not have quite the same appeal.

Personally, I'm still pining for young Behrooz from Day 4. He was dreamy.

And, frankly, if you woke up to find Kiefer lying on top of you, whispering "Trust me!" in your ear... well, you would, wouldn't you?

I'd be far too flustered by my imminant demise.

Remember, guns don't kill people - Jack Bauer kills people.
