Writer Strike? No Problemo for 24

Drink up fellow 24 fans, the looming writers guild strike that will soon end production of such shows as Heroes, CSI: Newark, House, and The Office will have no effect on Season 7 of Fox’s 24!

By New Year’s Day, primetime TV could be dominated by game shows, news magazines, sports and reality – which do not require scripts.

The networks are now scrambling to come up with contingency shows to replace scripted series such as “CSI” and “House” which have only about six weeks worth of new shows completed.

The current contract between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers expires on Oct. 31. A strike could occur as soon as the next day. (NY Post)

So, Wyatt….you may need to find a new show to replace the sick fascination you have with the indestructible cheerleader on Heroes. May I suggest the new and improved hotties on 24 like Carly Pope and/or Ever Carradine?

How can I be sure the strike won’t delay Season 7 you ask? I took an exclusive tour of Fox and snapped this photo (below) of the 24 writers still hard at work on the plots, subplots, love triangles, subplots to the plot’s subplots, and Jack Bauer’s manboobs that make 24 so awesome.

Point/Counterpoint

050.jpgPoint: Can I come back, please?
by: Agent Lynn McGill

I read on Blogs4Bauer that Tony Almeida is coming back for Season 7 and I think that’s really great. Tony was a real swell guy and never got a silent clock. Come to mention it, I never got a silent clock…can I come back for Season 7 as well. Please?

Seriously, I would really like to come back next season and I havebanner2.jpg some great ideas that would really help the writers of the show. Are you listening Manny Coto, you no-talent hack? Jack in Africa? What in the hell were you thinking?

The first thing I’d do is give me a better name, Lynn is a girl’s name and I was always getting teased by the CTU security staff. How does Lance Powers sound? Powers and Bauer, we could be nicknamed Bacardi and Baileys. Watch out bad guys – here comes Powers and Bauer! Sorry Jack, I meant Bauer and Powers.

I would also need an eye patch, a mustache, and a motorcycle. No make that two eye patches. Have I mentioned the midgets? We’d need at least three that would be there to serve us drinks and fetch babes. Then we need a cool black dude who’s only role is to wear aviator sun glasses and say cool things like “damn bro’ that’s gonna leave a mark” and “he did not see that coming“.

Well that’s all that I’ve come up with so far. There’s this one storyline involving an underground dolphin fighting ring, but I’ve yet to hear back from Brett Farve on his availability.

Powers out.

24 Kim Bauer Spoiler Alert

–EXCLUSIVE–
Those of you who check out Blogs4Bauer on a semi-regular basis know that we’re not a spoiler site in any way whatsoever. We are like the Tuesday morning quarterbacks of 24.

Well that all changes today! One of my friends works with a key sponsor of 24 and Fox. On a recent business trip, she was invited to meet some of the writers of 24 at a party. After a few drinks, her and Manny Coto hit it off pretty well and they exchanged email addresses to keep in touch. As a sponsor, she would like to know ahead of time what is going on with the show.

Well….she sent me this email from Manny talking about a favorite character of ours. Yes, RFTR will be glad to hear that Kim Bauer will soon make her glorious return. Thats right, Kim Bauer is coming back later this season! You heard it here first!

Now we have a couple more shockers that we will be coming down the pipe on future episodes of 24. If you are a fan of the show, make sure you check back tomorrow to find out….oh heck, just check back tomorrow for more insider information.
