jack is back….kind of

If you know Michael & I, you know that this time of year, we live and breathe ’24’. On Monday nights around 7:00 PM, from January to May, don’t call us – we won’t answer. We’re watching ’24’. Really. I can count on both my hands the number of people/couples that Michael’s converted to watch/love/obsess over ’24’. It’s visual adrenaline. Seriously. My palms are sweating even now as I write this.

The problem is this: late last year, our cable company and the company that owns the local Fox station here got into a dispute over money, and last week they pulled Fox (Fox! kind of a main channel, right?) from our lineup. Weird. Well people were lining up to get the free antennas the cable company was handing out, because ’24’ started last night and the NFL playoffs were this weekend, too. We tried the antenna last night, in the middle of a snowstorm. No love. We were instantly depressed. Bummed out, because the rest of the world was experiencing what we had been teased about for months: JACK….IS….BACK. Not for us. Not last night. We hung our heads and were openly jealous of all of you Fox-viewers.

Enter Amazon.com. Steve Jobs failed us: ’24’ was not on iTunes yesterday, today, or even tonight. We were starting to panic. Would we have to download a bootlegged version, or foam at the mouth for another night? Nay. Amazon.com has the premiere available to download TONIGHT. We are giddy. I mean, skipping-around-the-living-room giddy. We are like kids, gathering snacks around us, getting in our pajamas, ready to view the Season 6 premiere on the computer. Let’s go, Jack. We are locked and loaded. Take us away for another season of terrorist-hunting, world-saving, rule-breaking soldiering like only you can. Bring it.

    the perry’s are not 24 watchers… we know, we are missing out on the finer things in life… maybe one day a 6+ season marathon awaits us… who knows.

    i am happy for you. i once was addicted to a little show called Alias… I would wait for it, long for it, and snap the head off of anyone who dared to talk through it (blasphemy!)…

    enjoy my friends!

    P.S. good to see you are commenting again in the blog world – i was missing your little quips. and thanks for the art compliment. it means a lot coming from you.
