The Score with 24: ISO Agent Gedge!
Hello 24 whores, it is your pimp, JR checking in after a night so insane, stressful, and horrifying that I'm pretty sure I shat myself at least 12 times. And that is a rounded number. I may have shat myself more, and passed out for a period of time. I'd ask Jack or Kristin, but I think they passed out too.
You think you've been surprised before? YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING. Jack Bauer is back and he's got a Bic pen and eyes that focus on shoes and his gruff voice... and he looks sexier than ever.
Now, I understand that some of you may not have seen the two-hour first night premiere of 24 last night, and so I will give you NO spoilers. (Though, sweet Jesus, I want to TALK ABOUT THEM).
But I will say this: President Taylor's husband's personal detail, Agent Gedge, is one of the hottest characters I've ever seen grace the screen of 24. His lips. His dumb looks. His blind morality. I'm sure he'll end up being a terrorist, alien, or alient terrorist... but for now, GOD he's something to stare at.
Note to 24 producers: you NEED to get some photos of Agent Gedge online STAT. Don't make me stream through an episode I've already seen to take screenshots! That's a huge imposition on a dedicated fan such as myself.
I also hope that a subplot story involves the President's husband being shot, forcing Agent Gedge to remove every article of his clothing to fashion a makeshift tourniquet. Get working on that.
Sure, you can all go crazy for your vigilante Bauer or your dead Almeida... but I'll be pleased as punch to have a night in the West Wing with Agent Gedge.
