Fox News pretty much calls Barrack Obama a terrorist.

We are No Longer Safe

Tuesday, January 16, 2007 by Geoff

With the 4 hour premier of 24 airing yesterday and Sunday, the fiancee and myself are no longer safe. Coming late to the party as some would say, I started watching season 1 of 24 back in September, then with 4 episodes to go in season 2 Melissa join in on the JBPH. Now, four months later, 4 whole seasons in the bag, we are playing with a loaded gun. Not a loaded gun that shoots bullets, mind you, we are playing with a gun loaded with 24 spoilers.

The first couple of months had been easy. 24 was months away from premiering its 6th season, it wasn't really on anybody's mind. Then December came. Every time we turned on Fox, whether it was for the Simpsons, an Eagles game, or some other crap, we had to advert our eyes and scream to prevent ourselves from seeing an advertisement for 24. I like to think we were succesful in not viewing any unwanted spoilage, but I know deep in my heart that I saw things that were not meant for me to see.

Now, the first four hours of season six has premiered and we are just about to start Season 5 (if it weren't for the netflix's use of the USPS we would be up to date). The next few weeks are going to be hard. While we take in the glory that is and will be season five, the rest of the world is taking in the Bauerness that is season six. Our friends and family no not to say anything to us (I'm looking at you grandmom), but I'm more afraid of the accidental spoils. For example, a few minutes ago I was sitting at my cubicle minding my own damn business when I hear "Jack", "last night," "awesome." The insensitive twits on the other side of my cubicle were talking about 24. I wanted to yell, "SPOILER ALERT!", but instead I shoved my earbuds into my skull and frantically pushed play on my ipod. The sudden pain the loud music provided was a fine deterrent of the spoils, but I'm afraid.

I am afraid of what will happen when I'm at the gym and don't have my headphones when some punks start discussing Jack's latest killing spree, what I am suppose to do then. I would like to think I would react fast enough and drop the closest 45-pound plate on my head and knock myself out, but what if it takes too long to bludgeon myself unconscious?

The next few weeks will be a challenge, but a challenge, through the lessons learned from Jack Bauer, I welcome. I will shoot down and torture any possible spoiler like a dirty terrorist or a CTU mole. But being only a man, and not Jack Bauer, I have fears.
