24....

...Mistakes per minute?

WTF????????

I turn on 24, the hero racks a round into the chamber of his Glock, points it at this hot brunette, and the next scene shows it out of battery...slide back and barrel protruding.

WTF????????

He loads the thing and it's empty??????

WTF????????

He carries an empty gun????????

Someone explain this to me as I usually do not watch little boys prancing across my television screen and am at a loss to understand such bad drama.

Anti-gun stuff?

MORE

Okay I bit the bullet and turned 24 back on. These dudes do a halfass commando raid and not one of them has a rifle. Going into harms way with handguns.

There's a reason they're called sidearms. NO ONE going into harms way carries a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol except as a backup.

Low budget? They can't afford rifles?

I could send them some. On loan only of course. If they asked nice.

The Glock belonged to the federal marshall who was minding her. I thought it was odd that he was carrying condition one.

Hollywood is in a tough position.

They refuse to show to kids how cool it really is to be a terrorist-snuffing commando armed with a maybe silenced M4, ( silent souls making .223 holes ) yet they need to show terrorist snuffing commandoes are armed.

Like Iraq: Do you think the left really hates the idea of war? No, they hate the idea that young kids seeing professional military, doggies and jarheads alike, defending tehir country and they want to do the same thing. The left and their Islamists allies can't put that genie back in the bottle.
