It seems that everyone is divided on how 24 is going this season. While it remains a very compelling hour of television, there is certainly a subset of people that have dropped the show, or are growing tired of the totally ludicrous and unbelievable plot lines.
(For example, Jack is beat senseless multiple times in a few hours then holds on to the bottom of a truck as it drives along for several miles, or the umpteenth Presidential coup).
As I was watching the show this week, I started paying more attention to the supporting cast and came to the conclusion that Bill Buchanan’s character could not be ANY MORE boring. I mean, that guy is as dry as burnt toast, his lines might be the worst in all of primetime, “Get the President on the phone.” “Chloe, run the schematics over to Jack.” “Milo, get over to Nadia’s station and see what’s going on.” “Blah blah blah codes blah blah blah nukes.”
I figured maybe I was judging Bill Buchanan (aka James Morrison) a little too harshly, so I did some research online. Turns out I had Bill/James all wrong! Not only does Morrison actually possess the physical capacity to smile, which you’d never guess from the show - but he is also a prominent yoga instructor. (Could you make up the magazine cover at right?)
All this is to say Bill Buchanan::Yoga as Jack Bauer::Kicking Ass. Bill, we hardly knew ya!
