Man, two hours tonight huh? Looks like I might have to do two strips next week then. Yeah, I spoil you guys. ^_^
Anyways, about tonight's two-parter....
Okay, show of hands-- who thought Bill was gonna buy it when he started running around with the President's MedicAlert LiveStrong bracelet? Or when Juma had his mousefart-silenced handgun pointed at him? You know the writers were just screwing with fans with that bit.
And then Aaron gets tagged in the shoulder, but not before he Aarowned one of Juma's fellas. I really hope and pray the boys get out of this alive-- but that shot in next week's trailer with Jack looking distraught after an explosion does not bode well. Let's just hope he's feeling bad about the loss of a few press secretaries and maybe a foreign aide to Paraguay or something. I hate worrying based on the shots in the trailers which I am all-too-scrutinizing over.
Loophole of the week: apparently the security camera room guards were fast asleep when Juma's men were running up and down the White House halls. Honestly-- I'd have bought this radical plot twist if say they'd been taken out. Secondly, that panic room in the Roosevelt Room was tiny and fairly easy to crack into. I'd like to imagine there's like a pneumatic tube that 'Phoont"s the President over to say the Capitol Building or the Lincoln Memorial, and there's a security guard who tests it every morning like guys at an amusement park for rollercoasters.
Also-- anyone tired of the "terrorists get in through the relatively unguarded basement" method? Hi, writers? You did that last season. You are forbidden to pull that plot device out for another 5 years, got it?
I did love though the Chloe/Janis banter. I seem to recall a certain strip a few weeks back that covered this... But can't Chloe just stay out of trouble for more than three episodes? Cripes, I was afraid that Sean Hillinger was gonna get his meathooks into her last week.
Hmm... there's a comic in here somewhere. I'll find a few.
See you Wednesday with a new Planet X strip!
