"24", the TV show that has caused the uber-right to air-punch with their fists and shout "America, Fuck Ya!" had a lackluster season last year. Apparently, there wasn’t enough torture porn for its rabid fan base.
So what do they do? They make it all touchy-feely liberal.
First, they cast Cherry Jones as the President. That’s right, a woman President (played by a lesbian actress, no less).
Then, they announced a plot-line that dealt with global warming.
And now they’ve added Janeane Garofalo to the cast.
Reihl World View: I could tolerate 24 going carbon neutral as part of Fox’s corporate nonsense, but Janeane Garofalo?? Janeane Garo-friggin’-falo …
Urban Grounds: "I’ve seen every episode of all 6 seasons of 24. But I’ll never watch another episode again… Janeane Garofalo? Are you fucking kidding me? She is one of the most vile, hate-filled, and divisive personalities in the entertainment industry. And that’s really saying something. Why don’t they hire Rosie O’Donnell too and just bury the show proper?"
Balloon Juice: "A woman President and environmental concerns were bad enough. Now they have Michael Moore in a dress on the show."
Blogs4Bauer: "Was Carrottop busy?"
Hmmm. Maybe I’ll watch it this season…
