They Should All Be "24"
Not sure how many Shakers are regular 24 watchers, but if you haven't jumped on the Jack Bauer Express yet, now's the time. The show, in a word, is awesome. In just the first episode, Jack rips out a man's carotid artery with his bare teeth. By episode 3, a main character, one of Jack's colleagues, is shot in the throat. By Jack.
Fraankly, it's this commitment to fast-paced action that every show should emulate. Think of all the boring kick-offs to other show this past couple of weeks. I mean, how much would American Idol have benefitted if Simon shot Randy in the face with a pearl-handled pistol? The answer: A lot. Or if The L Word (yes, I watch) decided to take out a few characters via ninja assassin. Or maybe on Deal or No Deal one of the briefcases could contain a venomous snake that surges out and chases down the constestant (or spokesmodel).
Now that's entertainment. FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS you have your marching orders. If Meredith Veiria doesn't bite out a guest's espohagus next week, you can forget about me ever tuning in again.
