ahh... the winter season on fox

yes, i am more than a week late getting to it, but the sixth season of 24 is upon us!! hurrah for rogue agents! and magic hoodies! luckily, this year, jack had spent 20 months being tortured by the chinese, during which he uttered nary a word.

but when the time came for him to talk again, he had to whisper 3 words, and then had his normal voice back again. it couldn't have been the hoodie, because he didn't have it this time.

since we've seen the CTU gang last, bill buchanan (head of the LA office of CTU) married karen hayes (i believe secretary of homeland security), chloe (the worlds most irritating and disprespectful human on the face of the planet who also works for CTU) got back together with her ex-husband morris (british expat who worked for CTU, then sold women's shoes, and works for CTU again), and milo (who once received a severed human foot in his locker on six feet under's first season) and nadia are people i've never seen before who are promoted in over chloe because she has issues with working within the system.

this season, while there is a dearth of CentoxTM, we've got suitcase nukes, the brother of the assasinated president as the president, his sister as the lawyer/life partner of the head of an islamic-american association under susupicion of terrorism to bring awareness to ethnic and religious profiling, and a jack who's wrestling his PTSD demons and kicking suicide bombers off the red line.

i'm still one hour behind, as it was on opposite heroes, and um, hi! heroes! the show with the woman who absorbed the ultraviolent (oops, i typed ultraviolet) personality of her dead twin, and peter petrelli - the power absorber - running off to protect himself from nuking new york to the NEVADA TEST SITE (because there's no better way to prevent yourself from becming nuclear than to run to the test site). parkman is awesome. claire is okay (i might like her more if i didn't secretly worry she was prettier than i). hiro rules. why does the invisible guy need money if he just steals things, anyway? and more of micah's powers, please.

oh, i forgot this was a post about 24. oops.

I can see how Pants might think that Claire is hot, but every time I see her I think of her as the little girl in Remember the Titans. Just like every time I see the supposedly "hot" Olsen twins I can't agree because I think of little Michelle Tanner. And the idea of Lindsay Lohan being attractive escapes me as well, because she's basically Frankie Munez in drag. But I digress.

Heroes is great, and I agree that Parkman is awesome and Hiro rules...although I wish his "girlfriend" Charlie was still alive. I liked her.

Of course they had to pick the Chinese as the bad guys. Does that mean its in my blood to torture?

Meanwhile, LOVE Hiro, I guess Eden really is dead, and Mika's powers include making machines work? He was playing with robotics earlier in the season. Hmmmm....

love both shows -- dilemma for me but watched 24 and taped heroes. 24 is one show that a person can't become attached to the characters. thot we might have been safe for a while this season, but then became afraid something was going to happen to poor curtis earlier in that previous hour. did NOT see the end result coming. [gasp!] and only read this part if you've seen the latest hour -- what's up with "romano" (his name on er) and his connection to jack???

re heroes: love hiro also! but i think mohinder is GORGEOUS! and this is because i'm lame, but who is "parkman"?

thx, hf, guess i've not heard his last name. btw, the anonymous post was by me (si) -- certain names morphed when you changed your blog(?), or at least mine did...

like your new look -- especially like your "rocket surgery" title!

p.s. fwiw, i've been thinking about re-learning knitting; actually i probably never did *learn* it initially, or it at least didn't stick. looked into knitting classes but unfortunately missed this round. hope to sign up next time.

haha - si, i totally didn't remember getting an anonymous comment, but couldn't for the life of me remember who left that comment!

(re)learn knitting - it rules!!
