24:' Episode 21, 4-5 a.m.
A list of things that would suck:
1. Sharing an office with Janeane Garofalo
2. Being framed for a terrorist attack
3. Getting blown up on your way into witness protection
4. Accidentally assassinating someone
"24's" always about things that would suck, but we're usually so distracted by all the yelling and shooting and torture that we don't take the appropriate time to consider the characters' crap luck. Sometimes they get what they deserve: Take Olivia, for example. She's conniving, two-faced and self-righteous, so it's hard not to do a little happy dance when her evil plots come back to bite her. Then there's Jibraan. Poor Jibraan and his brother Hamid. Not only do these guys start their day before 4 a.m. (that sucks), but they're now being framed as Jihadists (really sucks) by Tony and Cara. (Well, at least Jibraan, Hamid will have to live with the stigma if the plan succeeds.)
Jonas Hodges falls into the Olivia category, although he was such a searing villain, his departure this week was definitely a bummer. Finally there's Jack, God bless him: Exposed to a lethal compound with no known cure, betrayed by his BFF, ignorant of his grandaughter's existence, and on top of all this, forced to share an office with a naggy liberal. Oh, the humanity.
