Season 8 of 24 Still Sucks

Wow…what a piece of *(%#E)987 last night.

Is this what watching a soap opera is like?  It has to be..the over acting, bad camera work, stupid plot twists…this show blows now.  I mean really really blows.  It’s not even watchable anymore, the only reason I kept watching last night was so that I could do this blog post.  How sad is that?

Two good things about last night:  no president taylor and no renee.

Bad Things about last night:

  • Marco’s acting.  God that was awful.  I felt bad for everyone involved in that scene.  What casting director could possibly pick him to play a role?
  • Dana Walsh’s existence…kill her off now.  Toss Cole with her.  No one cares about either of these crappy characters and their whole subplot
  • President Hassan sucks too.  And what was up with that hug with his wife?  Is this an after school special?
  • Tarin and Kayla Hassan.  Fits the soap opera perfectly.  Hey let’s show them having sex for no other reason then that we need a sex scene.   And what a surprise?  The guy you have been showing closeups on is actually the twist in the plot!  He is a bad guy!  Why does 24 have to tip us off on every plot twist.  I’m actually expecting Tarin to be working under cover as a double agent.

Oh yeah one more thing…hey genius Marco…if Jack takes your mom to the nuke site…which would be impossible anyways as they won’t be letting people just walk there…he would die also.  Weak Weak Weak writing.

Let me also tell you who sucks behind the scenes:

Brad Turner who has been directing episodes since 2004.  Milan Cheylov who has directed episodes since 2007.

Brandon Braga who has been writing episodes since 2009.  Alex Gansa who also has been writing episodes since 2009.  Patrick Harbinson who has written 3 episodes in 2010.

Many Coto and David Fury who have produced episodes since 2005.  Ditto Brad Turner.  Brannon Braga and Alex Gansa have been co-executive producers the last two years when this show has gone in the tank.  Blame those idiots.

And Series Casting…which is absolutely horrible:  Debi Manwiller and Peggy Kennedy…Please quit your jobs today.   There was a specialty casting person who worked from 2002 – 2007..bring them back:  Patricia Homan Davila.

Why do they have all these Indian actors playing Iranians?   Is there anyone out there who is enjoying this season?
