It is I, DougOLis-long time commenter/first time contributor, who will guide you through another season of the most intense show on television, 24. These recaps should come in a more timely matter in the future, but for now this is what you get. 

A recap of where things stand following 24: Redemption – War broke out in the Southern Africa nation of Sangala when General Benjamin Juma overthrew democratically elected Prime Minister Motobo.  Jack happened to be hiding in Sangala with an old friend, Carl Benton, at a school founded by Benton at the time. When Juma’s Colonels started “recruiting” child soldiers, Benton and Jack transported the kids from the school to the American Embassy but not before Benton gave his life. In order to secure passage for the children into the embassy, Jack was forced to turn himself in to the State Department.

Meanwhile back in the United States, Allison Taylor was sworn in as the new President after defeating former President Noah Daniels.  On his way out President Daniels seemingly did no favors to the incoming President by providing General Juma with arms and condoning the coup.  President Taylor’s son Roger found out from a friend, Chris, that a few shady businessmen led by Jonas Hodges, Jon Voight, may have had some involvement in the providing of arms and coup after Chris discovered sketchy bank transactions.  Before Chris was able to provide Roger with tangible evidence, he was tortured and killed by Jonas Hodges’ men.

Now on to Day 7, the _th worst day in Jack Bauer’s life. As always, events occur in real time.

The Following Takes Place Between 8:00AM and 9:00AM

As I did my weekly research into infectious disease and genetic disorders for these here recaps, I came across the depicted case of Bumbling British Doofusism. Your resident gun-slinging, cavalier, loose cannon, maverick, Lone Ranger doctor’s first wedding. It could just be me but she kind of looks like Cuddy.

On this week’s episode, the new hot fellow Thirteen far surpasses the old hot fellow Cameron in terms of insane, totally unfathomable sexual exploits. Cameron was always trying to bang House which was cool, but Thirteen has gone and one-night-stood with a drug addict with an extensive medical history. Oh, and it’s a woman. For this she blames her Huntington’s. Don’t click that if you don’t like spoilers. Do click the jump if you like girls making out with each other, structuralist suspense, and/or pistachios.

Well, I’m back. After a trip to the World Series to watch my beloved Boston Red Sox and a promising job interview, I can finally resume my House recaps and feel like I’m justified to write “Dr. & Mrs. Greg House” all over my notebooks. So let’s get to this week’s episode. You guys have waited long enough.

Episode 6, entitled “Whatever it Takes”, opens on the track where two drag racers are waiting for the green light. Casey, a female driver, is checking her controls and talking to her dad, Biff Tannen. Yes, that Biff Tannen. “I feel like throwing up my guts,” he tells her before she gets into the car. “Are you sure you don’t want to go to law school?” he asks. “No, I hate lawyers,” she responds. Excellent! This makes them prime candidates for potentially botched medical treatment at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital.

The music swells–either My Morning Jacket or the theme song from Nintendo’s “Toobin'”–as she accelerates down the track. I briefly thought that Casey was a character created as an homage to ovary-bearing IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, but that idea was dashed when Casey actually won a race. (more…)
