Save Nashville

This post is not 24-related.

I live in New York, but I’ll always have a place in my heart for Nashville.  I lived in Nashville from the age of 4 till I moved to NYC a few years ago.  In those years, I had my first car accident on West End.  I watched my first NFL game (The Music City Miracle) in Nashville.   I got sick on funnel cakes at Opryland USA (now a mall, currently an underwater mall).  Nashville is a great city with great people.

As you may have heard, last weekend the mid-south was hit with a “500 year” storm that saw the Nashville area hit with 13 inches of rain in a matter of hours.  This has caused immense flooding on a scale never before seen in Music City.  My hometown, Franklin was also hit with flooding.  I saw images of the pool I used to work at, the pool is gone – the only thing above water is the top of the 6-foot fence that surrounded the pool area.  The images are heartbreaking.

The people of Nashville need your help.  Please help.

Wyattastic!

At the end of last night’s episode, just before Ernie Anastos previewed what would be on the 10pm news, The Jack Sack helped coin a new word that will become part of 24 lexicon forever.

In honor of his (and Wyatt’s) contribution, I’ve submitted “Wyattastic” to Urban Dictionary where millions of people looking for crude sexual innuendo will instead be taught about Wyatt’s penchant for liveblogging episodes of 24 where even Jack Bauer looks bored.

For example, as TJS stated, last night’s episode was “Wyattastic”.

Submit your own examples of using this new word in the comments.

Update: Urban Dictionary published an entry for Wyattastic.

Point/Counterpoint: Grandpa Bauer is a bad influence on Teri Bauer

Point: Jack Bauer is a bad influence on his grandchild
By: Grandpa Oscar

I’m a concerned grandparent who has been a fan of the show ’24′ from the start.  While I have enjoyed the years of senseless violence, I’m starting to wonder if it has negative consequences.  Take little Teri Bauer, Jack’s granddaughter.  I see that they are going to start spending more time together (in around 24 hours or so).  This worries me because of Jack’s history of violence against both terrorists and fellow family members (see Graem and Great Grandpa Bauer).

It should also be clear to Fox that Jack’s history of extreme violence has already impacted how Teri sees the world.  Just check out the picture she drew for Grandpa in episode 2 of this season.


If my grandchild drew a picture of her grandpa blowing the brains out of a cute blue stick figure, alarms would sound and Grandpa would not shoot people around the grand kids ever again.  I speak for most responsible adults when I say that Jack Bauer is not a good influence on Teri Bauer.  On a side note, Teri cannot draw for crap.

I’d also like to complain about this weather and my aching knees, but I have to take my Popular Science into the bathroom and have a bowel movement.  You know, they haven’t been the same since Korea.

Previous Point/Counterpoints

Producer: ‘Jadrey’ not in the cards

I have some good news and some bad news.

First, the bad news.  This will probably the last season for our favorite show, you know….24

Now for the good news.  There will be no Jack Bauer-Audrey Raines hook-up (Jadrey is what we call the relationship in celebrity-hookup terms).

Exec producer Evan Katz tells me that a series-ending story has been hatched should 24 clock out for good next May—and it doesn’t involve an Audrey-Jack reunion.

“Some of the things we’re doing this season preclude [her returning],” he says. “So I think not. She was in bad shape the last time we saw her.” (Source)

That being said, this site has been known to throw around some rumors to see what sticks.  With Audrey still blowing spit bubbles and talking to her carpet, Jack Bauer needs a new love interest.

Why not go Brokeback?  With our inside sources, I can confirm the new relationship for Jack Bauer will be…. “CurBauer”.  Curtis Manning, who I bet you thought was killed when Jack shot him in the neck to save the terrorist Assad.  Nope, Edgar Stiles got a silent clock, however Curtis did not meaning he’s alive and wants Jack, literally.

Curtis: “You hurt me real bad Jack”

Jack: “Dammit Curtis, I had to save Assad.  I had no choice”

Curtis: “We all have choices Jack, I choose you”

Curtis

The new relationship should secure at least one Grammy, an Emmy and a few Sundance awards.

Jack Bauer -vs- T-Bag

robert_knepper_prison_breakAccording to Robert Knepper (aka – T-bag from Prison Break), he was going to give up acting a number of years ago.  That is until Jack Bauer punched him in his face.

In hindsight, Jack Bauer should have punched the writers of Prison Break for keeping that show around so long.  I mean come on, they broke out of prison in season number 1.  End of show.
