I’ve started watching 24 this season.  I’m actually quite interested in it this season due to the lack of CTU.  For some reason the whole CTU setup just bothered me.  I’ve not even sure why.  But this season is great.  Jack Bauer is a great character, and I really appreciate the entire “yes I did horrible things and I won’t deny it or try to cover it up” motif that is going on.

Though, I do have to say, no one puts all their SCADA systems in one basket, so you can’t go and shut down the nations water and sewer systems with just one access.  Power on the other hand can be overloaded, and if the grid doesn’t act fast enough to cut off the overload you can cause very large blackouts.  But then, you don’t need a computer to cause a black out.  Cars, planes, and explosives would be much easier, quicker, and makes a really nice visual. 😀

    See? It’s a good show. I always watched for Jack so it didn’t matter where he was. I’m glad that you’re watching it with me this season.

    Stumbled across your site on GeoCon. While GeoCon is no more, the Gaming Guild still lives! It’s just very anti-social and is often lax on the paperwork. 🙂 They’re planning on hosting a gaming room at this year’s ChibiChibi Con, if I recall correctly.
