The Jury is In: “24” is a hit!

Keeping the blog interesting for the summer — when I don’t have a whole lot to report — is going to be tricky (as evidenced by that fantastically lame and desperate entry title). I do have jury duty on Monday, and maybe there will be an interesting story to report from that experience. I doubt it, though.

When I had jury duty several years ago, I got one of the lawyers in trouble by asking for a clarification of a law, which he started to answer — until the judge told him that it was her job to give the interpretation of the laws, not his. Needless to say, I was not selected to serve on that jury.

I’m hoping the same thing happens this time — that I get excused without having to serve on an actual trial.

AEJ and I finished watching season 3 of “24” on DVD last night. Totally the most dreary and bleak season of “24” ever, but still unbelievably great stuff. Season 4 may have been my favorite, largely because it didn’t include Kim Bauer (worst. character. ever. — but beware of season 1 & 2 spoilers if you click that link), but season 3 was definitely more-than-worth watching. For those who haven’t yet seen this show, take my word for it: This box set was the best DVD purchase AEJ and I have ever made — perhaps the best $120 ever spent. Ever. I would recommend the “24 Starter Set,” which contains the first two episodes of the series, but you’d end up wanting the box set anyway…

Since I don’t have much to offer today, I refer you to the blog of Wil Wheaton. No matter how you felt about him on Star Trek: The Next Generation, there’s no denying that he’s a great writer, and keeps a dependably entertaining (and often truly moving) blog. Give it a read. Plus, if enough people follow those links, maybe Wil will follow those referrals back here and start reading my blog! Wouldn’t that be cool (but quite unrewarding for Wil)?!
