After watching 5 back to back episodes of 24, here are my thoughts:
1) The people who make this show can not tell arabs and indians apart!
2) Is it just me, or is Assad the coolest terrorist ever? He is like the arab Bauer! Give Assad his own show.
3) The villian, Fahad, should be named "Bin Diesel" from now on! (coined by Sarah K )
4) Nuclear explosions are not a problem, it seems. You can have one in your city and it's all good!
5) Bauer can still kill you and everybody you know, even if he was all broken and tortured in chinese prison for 20 months.
6) Stabbing Bauer doesn't stop him or weaken him, or even make him bleed for long. He has wolverine-like healing powers, and this shit just makes him angry. And you don't want Bauer angry. I mean, he killed a man in the first episodes by biting a chunk of his neck out. Wanna mess with that guy?
7) Kal Pen gets the worst terrorist ever portrayed on TV award. His reason for turning on his american friend? He can't pronounce his name right "It's AKKKKHHHHMEDDDDDDDDD"! Boooo!
8) The new Black President is way too eager to give terrorists what they want! He is a pussy. Me hates him. And his sister is annoying! Where is his wife btw? What? A single AND black President? Yeah, cause that's plausible!
9) Why do people always question Jack Bauer? Just do what he tells you to do. He is always right!
10) Keifer Sutherland has the coolest voice for the job. I want that voice. No one would ever mess with me with that voice!
Ohh, and is it just me, or is this show a little too torture friendly?
All in all, I am not sure you could call this show racist against arabs or bigoted against muslims, because for every bad arab or muslim they show (Bin Diesel, AKHMED) they have a good one (the head of the IAA and Nadia). I think they do the whole PC dance very well, and sooner or later the main villians will stop being muslims and will become russian or chinese or both. Oh, and the CTU and the White House will have like 30 traitors each. That's what always happens. It's a 24 tradition! So don't fret over the muslim/arab thing, Bauer will be torturing chinese or russian ass in no time!
That is all.
