24 remains my ultimate guilty pleasure TV series; it's preposterous and absurd, yet utterly gripping and addictive. Today I give praise to the character of Mike Novick, who returned unexpectedly last season as a member of President Keeler's administration. Mike Novick is the guy Dick Cheney wishes he was when he gets up in the morning. Mike Novick's every line of dialogue has an unspoken coda of "...you fucking shit." Except when he's talking to Jack Bauer.

Meanwhile, I'm starting to worry about CTU Director Bill Buchanan. He's smart, competent, well-adjusted, respects his underlings, and knows how to stand up to his superiors in an effective and productive manner. Clearly, the man is toast.
