Dude, I'm with you on this. Nauseating is the correct word. I can hardly stand to watch Karen Hayes and Sandra Palmer. Last week's episode was the worst out of any of the first six seasons. Even the cougar arc from season two had more potential.

I'm hoping that Walid is actually a terrorist who is forced to take out Sandra. Then I'm hoping that Bill Buchanan is the mole, and has to sacrifice Karen for the greater cause. That would shut up the two biggest offenders.

They need to get back to Jack in the field and Chloe at CTU. That's the strength of the show now that they've killed off David, Tony, and Michelle.

I was also annoyed by the preachiness but they did have a nice twist when the hippy family felt bad for that Muslim kid and took him into their home
without realizing he was ACTUALLY A TERRORIST!! I loved that aspect.

Another annoyance I have with the show is not only does Pres Palmer's sister need to keep her eyeballs in her socket and keep her trap shut but Pres. Palmer NEEDS TO SPEAK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why does that guy whisper all the time?

Yeah, there have been some turn-arounds that would seem to justify racial profiling, etc. However, it is drowned-out by the preachy monologues.

I totally agree with Eric and like the whole idea of making suggestions to the writers. Walid whacking Sandra would be sweet... but even better would be President Palmer taking out Sandra when he finds out she is a terrorist who was radicalized when she went to law school in London! Or how about saying that Curtis' death was faked like Jack's (remember the whole neck wound thing at the end of season 4?) and having Curtis whack Karen Hayes in the middle of one of her Constitution speeches!

Yeah!

Brett,
I wonder about the writers perspective. You know, they are good friends with Rush, and spend a lot of time with him in his home in Florida. I remember things like this in past seasons, and it wasn't what it appeared. You know how things can change on a moments notice on this show, maybe the writers are trying to make a point. Maybe Sandra and Karen will get burned due to their perspective and a case will actually be made for racial profiling. I know...maybe I'm being naive? But I agree, they are quite annoying!

Brett,

Curtis is gone. Just like Tony. If you go to the 24 website, there's a big red "Deceased" stamp over their pictures.

Eric

Denise may be on to something. Virtually everyone on the 24 message boards finds Rev. Sandra and Rev. Karen to be sickeningly preachy. Perhaps the writers are setting up a big reversal in which all of this ranting against racial profiling comes back to haunt them. That would be sweet!

Followed a link from Drudge...Surnow (24 creator and writer)is definitely a Conservative. This article talks about his friendship with Rush and Ann Coulter and his efforts to start a conservative network and his support of Ronald Reagan. Interesting...
