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. 😀

Backyardigans to Metallica

So if you have kids, you end up watching lots of kids shows.  Perhaps more than you really should.  But then, you would never find out that the Backyardigans dance very well to Metallica.
