Has Time Run Out For 24?

March 23rd, 2007

And the current, desperately bloodthirsty series has horrified some … Look a little closer, though, and a more complicated – and far more interesting – picture emerges.Start by checking out President Wayne Palmer’s lapel badge. (You’ll need to look closely.) It’s two US flags, facing in opposite directions. That just about sums things up. Then look at the vertical lines that stripe so many scenes (especially decorating the glass partitions inside CTU). Everyone is caged, trapped.
