Went to a screening last night of the first hour of tonight's 24 season finale. We watched Jack Bauer work to save the world in a theater with about 1,000 people. I have to say, it's a great experience to see a show like that in a room filled with huge fans cheering and booing along with each plot twist. Lots of fun, indeed. I could tell you happens, but I won't spoil it.

Afterwards there was a panel sponsored by the Center for American Progress about how the show relates to terrorism in the real world. The panel included a few policy makers, three of the show's writers as well as Keifer Southerland, Greg Itzin, and Jean Smart. My friend, Mike Ochs, got a laugh from the entire audience for his question to the panel. The other questions were kinda lame. Someone should have asked Keifer about attacking Christmas trees. I guess it wouldn't have been the appropriate forum for that though.

I gotta say, I'm glad that the last of the big season finales are this week (Lost being the other one) because with this wedding thing in five weeks, there's much to do in the real world.
