Buh-Bye, Jack Bauer: Show That Long Ago Jumped the Shark Will Soon Say Official Good-Bye

By Debbie Schlussel
It’s official: Next season, “24”–the politically correct show that always makes Islamic terrorists the instrument of the corporate White man or the Russians or Jack Bauer’s father and brother–will be its last.
But for me, “24” is already dead man walking. I just don’t watch anymore. I watched last year’s “24” 2-hour movie, which was stupid and boring. Then, I tried to watch “24”‘s four-hour season premiere a couple of weeks ago. I just couldn’t get into it.
Once the show started becoming politically correct, it lost its luster. Whenever art gives in to the demands of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (headed by the hubby of a “HAMAS “charity” operator, who had to shut down ), it ceases being entertaining. And that’s the case with “24.”

“PC 24″ by David Lunde/Lundesigns

So when I read today that Jack Bauer’s show will say bye-bye, I thought, gee, hasn’t it already? I’ve long ago said bye-bye to it, and am watching DVDs of old movies during the “24” time slot. To me, Jack Bauer is just the alter ego of liberal Canadian Kiefer Sutherland (who is not a U.S. citizen, but is oddly the voice for “Bank of America”).
The other “24” news: Once it goes off the air, they’ll start making the long talked about “24” movies. But I predict they won’t be a hit. “24” long ago jumped the shark. And the only way to bring it back is to make the terrorists Muslims who work for Muslims (not the evil corporate White man stereotype). And the “24” producers and writers–for all of Exec Producer Joel Surnow’s claim of being an alienated-Jew-turned-Catholic uber-right-winger–are simply liberals.
See ya, Jack. And don’t forget to close the faux-counterterrorism door on the way out.
Political Correctness, not curiosity, Killed the Cat.

I didn’t watched it from the second season, if I remember well, from the day the day I heard that he will apologize to the Muslims at the beginning of the show.
It was it, as far as I’m concerned.
I think apology is not enough.
Hollywood, and especially Fox, should produce another “24” with a “Muhammad Bawar” trying to save the Islamic world from the Jews and the Crusaders.
And maybe they should also change the name of the show to “72” as in “72 Virgins.”

The only reason “24” was successful was because its timing coincided with the 9/11/01 attacks. As those attacks faded from memory, interest in “24” waned.
Unfortunately, “24” may yet be resurrected. Given the loud pronouncements by the new O’Bama administration that we are weakening our already-weak counter-terrorism efforts, it is probable that we will have to endure another catastrophic attack. In fact, the announcement that Guantanamo will close its prison is the first public policy act of the O’Bama administration.
How do you expect Muslim terrorists to read this? That’s a rhetorical question.
You can count on Islamo-Fascist terrorists rushing to be first to attack America and exploit the weakening of our already-weak defenses.
Once an attack succeeds, “24” will again be popular.

Debbie –
As I recall, Surnow abruptly severed all connections to his creation ’24’ about 2 years ago, right after Rush Limbaugh mentioned his friendship with Surnow….
…isn’t there a big Saudi financial stake in Fox?
[N: YOUR RECOLLECTION DECEIVES YOU. JOEL SURNOW REMAINS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, OWNER OF, AND WRITER FOR "24" TO DATE:

YES, AS I'VE NOTED PRINCE ALWALEED OWNS AT LEAST 5.46% OF NEWS CORP, WHICH OWNS FOX. BUT HE PURCHASED THE INTEREST ONLY IN 2005. "24" HAS BEEN PC ON ISLAM SINCE SEASON 2 IN 2003.
