Sorry this got up a day late gang. Unfortunately, as stated before, my gig on Dancing with the Stars is really playing a number on my production schedule. I guess I just have to get started earlier drawing now, don't I?
So, about this week's ep...
Well, we all dreaded it. None of us wanted to think it, but we all knew it was possible-- the death of another beloved character.
Was it going to be Bill? Or Aaron? Or Jack?
...yeah, like it's gonna be Jack.
William Buchanan went out with a bang. Literally.
But he also went out a hero and a true patriot of the United States of America.
He didn't whimper.
He didn't cry.
He didn't beg for his life.
He took destiny into his own hands, and sacrificed himself for the good of the country.
And frankly-- other than of course having him live-- I can't think of a more honorable way to send the character off. They also gave him the silent clock, so please fans, no "hoping" for a miracle resurrection. Let him go. Let him go.
I also think this is the longest consistent "tribute" they've given to a fallen character, having Jack linger through the commercial break near Bill's body, speaking highly of him and his convictions upon returning.
Bill, we are all going to miss you. I just hope Karen actually gets a mention this time when she gets the bad news. Not likely, I'm afraid.
Incidentally, I actually have a part 2 to today's strip--I'm hoping to get it up perhaps later today, but don't count your breath-- I have to head into work again. ^_^
Finally, if you get the chance (and you haven't stopped reading), check out WCG Ultimate Gamer on SciFi which premiered last night. I also worked on that show start to finish, and it turned out not too shabby. Being an avid gamer, I tried to keep 'em in check as best I could to "keep it real". ;)
