TV's Top 5!: Even Jack Bauer needs to know his Dad

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Jan 23rd 2007 1:01PM

Kiefer Sutherland on 24If you ever wanted to learn what happens when sibling rivalry goes very wrong, we had Jack Bauer teach us a thing or two in last night's episode of 24. Next time my teenage brother doesn't tell me where my Dad is, I'm gonna keep this clip* on my video Ipod to show him how lucky he is that he isn't a Bauer.

24 has introduced Jack Bauer's meaning of nuclear, not once but twice this season. First time in the big kaboom manner, and secondly in the equally explosive "tell me where Papa is!!" manner. If we have past seasons to gauge how this part of his family tree is going to branch out, it probably means these actors are already looking for their next gig.

No matter how awful it is to watch someone kill their sibling, it isn't as horrible as what happened to a few unlucky suitors on I Love New York.

This show is completely based on a person's inability to let go of their fifteen minutes of fame.
So its never surprising to catch someone living their sixteenth minute on this show. Like Cher and roaches, we can't seem to completely rid of Omarosa. She makes a guest appearance on last night's episode which was a hybrid of The Apprentice meets Suze Orman meets Flavor of Love, where the contestants were examined by their credit reports and then publicly lambasted on national TV.

I guess for New York it's "money first, then things, then people".
It doesn't matter if you were asking for it being on this sorry show, but making someone's credit report open on national television just isn't right.
