24 s8 4-8pm

    new CTU looks like the set used in la femme nikita. but armoury looks suck, like personal collection of enthusiast only. they used to use dell, now they use apple. the director tries to be cool & smart but fails.

    madam president is alone finally. daughter is in prison & her husband has left her.

    ethan is taking medicine…

    the journalist, who has an affair with president of irk, looks a bit like secretary of former president daniel

    kim really grows up. but is this good to let jack back to ctu? last time he was dead if without her help. how about this time? either jack or ortiz cannot survive after season 9. they are quite alike. & renee is even darker than jack, she cannot handle it.

    everyone keeps sayin, “damn it!”

    dana’s ex-boyfriend may be connected to russian guys in the jail… i believe her role will be soon replaced by chloe.

the men who stare at goats

  • my mind of george clooney still sticks into the age of er. time flies a lot.
  • the script is quite funny but actually is a bit short. george clooney did a good job. there are too few cameos for kevin spacey especially he is in dark side.
  • it’s a tribute to star wars. they called themselves jedi warriors. the power they use has good & dark side. and use ewan mcgregor as one of the actors and how he learns the force. it is funny when george clooney to tell obi-wan what the force is (of course it is also funny after showing how to use the force to make cloud dissolved)! and finally ewan becomes jedi master again!
  • the film i think is saying something more, like job & family affair; vietnam war, hippies & drugs, internal politics of military, private contractors; operation iraqi freedom.
