Swiss cheese is the fickin shit I forgot
Regard mini jupes, square Notre-Dame by Jean Philippe Charbonnier
I was a huge fan of 24 back in the day. The first season was the first television show I “binge watched” on DVD while in college. I think I watched all 24 episodes in four days…
So I’m glad it’s coming back. And I’m actually happy that it’s not going to be a feature-length film. 24’s hook was the real-time aspect played over a long season. I would worry that a 24 movie would be just like 6,000 other action movies.
That said, I’m also glad they’re cutting it to 12 episodes rather than 24. One major issue with the show was that trying to fill 24 hour-long episodes meant there were a handful every year that were total dogs. Now they can hopefully remove those dogs. And now we won’t have to wonder when Jack Bauer uses the restroom…
Of course, this new format alone won’t solve the issue of repetition. After season 3, basically every season was the same — including a few that were almost identical in their story arcs. Every bad guy was only a front for another bad guy who was a front for the real bad guy.
Here’s hoping they can re-capture the magic of the fantastic first season. Pretty stupid title — though at least it’s not: 12.
Still from Noam Toran’s film, Desire Management, published in Visionare, issue 57, January 2010. This film explores the use of objects as vehicles for dissident behavior. In this scene a man is forced to cry in a strange device by his partner.
every single person you know has something in their life and past that is probably worth collapsing to the ground in an uncontrollably sobbing heap over, so be nice to each other and tell good jokes
