24: Meh.

Anyone else feel like nothing really happened this week? Maybe it's just having Heroes to compare it to again, but the storylines just didn't hold my interest. Okay, so Morris and Chloe are having problems, but Morris is being whiny, so whatever. Karen and Buchanan are having problems, too, and there's a little bit of intrigue, in that Karen is basically screwing her husband out of his job in order to keep hers, but Buchanan's had that job for far too long. Why, he's been head of CTU for almost a whole season! It's unheard of! It's time for some new redshirt from Division to take charge of CTU and get back to the real business of CTU heads: getting killed, directly or indirectly, by Jack.

And then there's the exchange, the chip for Audrey, which is, unsurprisingly, ruined by CTU. It's not the end of the season yet, and no one was listening to Jack, least of all Doyle, so of course he's going to start the firefight that got Cheng out, with the chip and unexploded. The only shocking moment this week is what happened to Audrey: she lost her mind in China! It's true! The Pizzicato Strings of Derangment tell us so! Okay, 24, that is exciting, and I'm interested to see where it goes, but you really have to step up your game if you want to lure viewers away from Heroes.

Nothing really happens any week on 24. I can't believe that this show has been on the air this long. It is boring. I usually fall asleep during every episode I watch.
