Say hello to “Cherry Jones”. This typical late-middle aged woman might look very normal – but she is not normal in the least. She is so far from normal that her existence has changed the world forever. She has done something so entirely profound that I can barely form the patterned ascii text to describe its happenings. This woman… has officially ended my viewing and fanship of the television program “24”.
I have been a 24 fan since college when I purchased the first season on DVD. I watched it nearly in one sitting, and was purely gripped by the show. I have viewed every moment, the entirety of the series, seasons 1 through season 6; but I will not be watching, mentioning, talking about, or even trying to follow along with season 7 of “Fox’s hit show” 24. Since the inception, fox has done everything in it’s power to ruin this sacred and acclaimed television drama. Continually ridiculous plot lines grow with sheer linear upwardness – and interesting, deep characters are banished by death from the show leaving quirky asshole bitches the main focus.
Season 6 permanently jaded me… I was positive that I could never – NEVER – feel the same way about 24 as I did in seasons 1,2,3 and even 5. “Twenty-Four” crossed a very very serious line and there was no coming back from it. I can’t even bring myself to go into details- but season 6 of 24 was just dogshit. I hated it. 80% of why I maintained viewing it was because I wanted to win money from vanlandw because that douche hole love child is definitely Jack’s son. Even then, I was dangerously close to banishment of the show.
Enter Mrs. “Cherry Jones”.
For those of you who do not know, Cherry Jones is going to be the President of the United States in the next season of 24. I had heard this rumor, and VANBERGS informed me that he was pretty sure it was official. He was correct (As seen here). I can’t quite even put my finger on ‘why’ – but the fact that 24 is putting a woman president into the mix has launched raw fury and unbridled hatred onto the camels back, shattering the camel into a Rob Zombie film. “Broke the Camels Back” is hardly an accurate description.
I, Vanberge, am never watching 24 again.
“I wanted to win money from vanlandw because that douche hole…”
I laughed at that because I thought you were going to call vanlanw a douche hole :-[
I wanted to change my “comment name” to reflect what is written on my birth certificate. After much thought, I have decided to end my affiliation with 24. Vanberge, I say we hold our own new breed of “24 Mondays”. We’ll load up a disk of the show from seasons past, and try to pretend that a stupid bitch is not running Washington, D.C. Either that, or we make enormous flags out of tampons and maxipads, spraypaint “24 Menstruates” onto them, and hang them in our respective yards from 9:00pm to 10:00pm every Monday night.
Fuck you, 24.
I, Vanbergs, am never viewing 24 again. In the immortal words of my father and Old-School Metallica…So Let it be Written, So Let it Be Done.
I am giving next season 8 episodes, 1/3 of the season. After that I will evaluate whether or not I’m going to watch the rest of the season.
Steven Paul VanBergen,
I’m with you. 24 night will be re-invented. I saw we hang up a pic of “chloe” and throw darts at it.
I’m going to watch it but not with the same enthusiasm.
It’s a shame because I remember how much fun it was to watch with all my friends now nobody is going to watch. Oh well it’s just a TV show. Regardless read the link below and read the stuff about they are going to be “incorporating the issue of global warming and the importance of carbon emission reduction into storylines.”
wtf….but i agree with throwing darts at a pic of chloe she is a fucking bitch
“a press release on the shift does say that “when appropriate” the next season will be “incorporating the issue of global warming and the importance of carbon emission reduction into storylines.”
I can picture it now: Jack leaves SUV running outside of CTU, Chloe’s newborn demon spawn looks at him and growls, “Turn that off, you’re hurting teh environmentz!”
“O, rly? Oopz lol! I has a hybrid?”
So, not only is 24 targeting America as the biggest bunch of pussies ever for having a woman leader, they’re painting us as goddamn hippies in the process. I don’t care if tv mirrors real life to a certain extent…but enough is enough.
Fuck you, 24. Just give up on it vanlandw. Same goes for you Kramer.
Vanberge, I’ll see you in the winter.
And now you see why I never watch a show that has potential to start off amazingly. It can only disappoint. Same thing happened with Monk.
Also, for Vanberge…this just came down on the wires at work…don’t know if you can have this affect you or not…
Online D-V-D rental pioneer Netflix is
lowering the price of its two most popular subscription plans by a
one dollar a month.
It’s giving up (m) millions of dollars in revenue in an attempt
to regain the upper hand against arch-rival Blockbuster.
The price cuts take effect Tuesday and match the fees charged by
Blockbuster for similar online-only services.
The latest changes will have a big impact on Netflix’s finances
because the price reductions are being made on the company’s two
most widely used plans.
Netflix’s stock price has already dropped by 24 percent so far
this year amid worries about tougher competition from Blockbuster
and video downloading services
Fuck you 24.
Thank god that The Shield is still top notch. And hasn’t become hippy bullshit.
why couldn’t they announce karl urban or like one cool actor coming to the show i don’t know why in the fuck they keep casting women as shitty characters. also Buchanan not coming back as really the only good character to bring back just blows i don’t know what they are thinking
It is a lost cause vanlandw. They are bringing back the worst characters, and introducing terrible ones. 24 is dead. It is just dead.
i wouldn’t mind seeing that chick from grey’s anatomy on there. she is a QT!!!
i am happy to report that i am the only person reading this blog that is not a complete nutcase. why a female president in 24 would push you over the edge remains a mystery to the teee. if your gripe is that a woman is in a position of power, you’ll have to pretty much dismiss every single episode of 24 from every season. if your gripe is that a woman is in *the* position of power, then you’re not any better off. even with a male president (regardless of race), the women in this show dominate nearly everything either by stereotypical manipulation or flat out smarter reasoning.
there are plenty of reasons not to watch this next season (i wont’ be watching it either), but a woman president is not one of them.
“I surrender… take my land” – Russ
I’m not even responding to what russ just said.
i rest my case 😛
I don’t think that issue is with a woman in power. I think the issue is with the fact that 24 is going to use the tired ass “woman in power” plotline. I have never watched this show and I already hate it.
As much as this doesn’t happen very much I agree fully with Vo. Yes the “woman in power” plot line is kinda tired and something really not to look forward to. 24 has done it countless times (Alberta Green, Driscoll, Michelle, Karen Hayes, Nadya etc) over and always it just ends up with bitchy women fucking over the men. 24 has never had good women characters maybe a hand full (nina, Lynne, Season 2 Michelle and a few more i can’t think of).
Vo you should really watch at the LEAST the first three seasons. It’s worth it and we mostly bitch because of how much we all used to love the show. It’s never been perfect but really the first three seasons are the best…4 is ok worth a watch if you get into it 5 is good better then 4 and 6 is passable about a third of the episodes i would say are “good” (1-5, 17 for the fayed battle, 24 for the action and final scene)
I also tend to agree with russ female president is not enough to make me stop watching but i don’t find this as good news nothing that has come out recently I would say is the news i was hoping to hear. Nothing on location changes, nothing with exciting casting news…that is what i’m waiting for.
good discussion vanberge gg
Sorry to spam but there is some more information about season 7 a BC fan sent me. Seems season 7 will sadly be 3 years down the line (heard rumors it will be six months that is what i’m hoping), no CTU, in DC and sadly chloe will be back. some decent news (DC no CTU) but still some downers…check it out
The fact that there will be no CTU this season is almost enough to bring me back around from “vanhood” to “fanhood”. Meaning I may have to go back on my word out of morbid curiosity.
Google Translated… wow this came out well:
Speech today to of “cherry Jones”. This model perhaps, the woman whom center ages slowly you see very normally, but -, she being minimum, is not normal. For the present there is she from the normal state to which her existence changes the world permanently. She was possible and made what so complete to form the text of ascii where I am at last imitated in order to describe profound happenings. As for this woman…The television program “24 ” my viewing and fanship were finished officially.
Officially. It is finished.
I when I purchase the first season of DVD, am directly 24 fans ever since the university. I looked at one that it sits down almost and was grasped completely by show. I at the time of all, the series, looked at the whole of season 6 from season 1; But I with season 7 of 24 of “orphan popularity show” look at that it continues not to be, expressing and expressing, in addition furthermore try. Since starting, the orphan this holiness which is, the power which makes the drama of the television which is extolled ruinous had done that everything. As for the always ridiculous plotting line thin alignment upwardness you are brought up, – make interest cause, deep quality is banished the dying from the show which goes away from the principal focus to the female dog of extravagant asshole depending.
The fatigue the season when it cuts 6 permanently me… The same method approximately 24 as for me I never – never – me who am not felt making season and 1,2,3 when, making five equal without being possible it was affirmative. “24” very made the very serious line cross, there was no thing which then comes returning. I cannot come accompanying by my in order to enter into detail, but season 6 of 24 was fair dogshit. I hated that. I that why maintained viewing, because 80% my raw child of the hole of the douche is the son of the jack completely, because you thought that I would like to win the money from vanlandw, it was. And, I to be close to dangerous extent in exile of show.
“Cherry Jones” lady participate.
Because of your those which you do not know, cherry Jones has done the fact that it is American president of the following season of 24. I hear this rumor, as for VANBERGS he considerably secure that being there was an formality which informs about me. (Sees here) he was correct. As for me rather why”, but it can put my finger in the `and the fact that makes unprocessed rage and self-indulgent hatred the camel launch, pulverizes the camel in the film of the zombie of Rob – 24 is inserting the president of the woman in combination. Most accurate descriptions which are did not break “the camel”.
I, Vanberge never does not look at 24 for the second time
“I, Vanberge never does not look at 24 for the second time”
almost as good as “When Nope, it is not.” from vanbergs’s post
i love google translator :-[
If Google only knew how unfathomly poetic its translator truly has become.
I think my favorite is that ”’season 7 of “Fox’s hit show” 24”
season 7 of 24 of “orphan popularity show”
Vanbergs, you have already stated that you are not going to watch orphan popularity show next season… you can’t go back on your van-word just because of ‘no ctu’. with a woman president, chloe bitch, etc, they may just as well have ctu.
once again vanberge’s comments reveal his true position on this issue: it isn’t that the woman in power is a cliche, it is just that he hates women in general.
actually, i don’t like them either. hmm.
lmao rusty i don’t really like women at all either. With the show three years down the line the last thing I want to see is Chloe with a child, and i’m sure to be a power hungry woman in power president. I hate Hillary I’m going to hate “Cherry”.
I don’t like the three years down the line Jack is getting to old storyline wise. I like no CTU but i’m sure FBI or secret service is goin to take up the incompetent CTU parts of the storyline. DC will be cool a new color pallet on screen should be cool.
So far news for season 7 is 50/50 when i was hoping for 75/25 good bad. Oh well there is still time.
I hate the monster squad. But, i do want to see it again.
I watched the monster squad last night. As bad now as it was then.
300 is just as amazing now as it was in the theaters.
