I have an issue with this season of 24. Much like previous days, I can’t take the CTU director/token authority figure seriously.
Sure, Brian Hastings is borderline incompetent, way too egotistical and follows the CTU rulebook a little too much. But that we’ve seen before. Rather, scenes with him are near unwatchable for one simple reason: the man cannot stand up straight. Don’t believe me? See for yourself:
I know CTU is underground, but it seems like it has plenty of high ceilings. And if he’s hunching over to hear those who are shorter than him, it may serve him better to take that dumbass earpiece out of his ear. But if this guy has an early case of scoliosis, I don’t know if I can watch him slouching his way through another 20 hours.
I did have a few other things to say about these two hours of the eighth longest day of Jack Bauer’s life.
