Genius Envy

24 commentary for this week – I actually didn’t have anything to say about this week’s episode, besides the usual (Kim needs to die, etc). I thought it was pretty solid. But those last few seconds… He shot him in the ear? Who shoots someone in the ear? I mean, really. He was probably aiming for the soul patch.

Vice has a typically snotty article about bands screwing indie labels, but the bit about Teenage Fanclub versus Matador Records is particularly interesting. The Fannies seem like such nice boys, the idea of Matador’s Gerard Cosloy hating them with a fire that rivals the very pits of hell is an odd one. Link from

More Matador-related horror stories here: a slew of bands are asked, “What was your worst memory of touring with Yo La Tengo?” Hilarious anecdotes ensue. From Largehearted Boy.

Congratulations to Doc Halladay on winning his first Cy Young award by a landslide. That’s four Cy Youngs for Blue Jays pitchers in eight years – pretty damned impressive, and also ironic. We somehow manage to have both the best pitching in the league and no pitching at all.

    i think tony was shot in the ear, but when you look at it his hand is also holding on to his head. and he almost seems out of it when jack gets there. you don’t get knocked out when you get shot in the ear. of course he’s not dead. not tony (although, this would really be an out-of-the-blue moment; and jack did prevent chase being shot by not allowing him to go. i think tony is in more trouble than the 24 characters are used to. maybe).

    that blood coming down his head looked horrible (as in real, i’m not being sarcastic).

    it was nice to see tony put on the cop sunglasses to go in the field, though :) even though he’s an office guy he’s still a badass :)

    I thought Jack said "he’s shot in the neck?"

    Damnation, I missed the end of the episode. They went to commercial right when Tony went down and it was like 9:57 – I thought it was over. That’ll learn me… it ain’t over till the clock hits 0:59.

    yeah man, it was all about the neck. i still kinda think chase needs to die, that’ll teach kim! and then maybe she can die, too.

  5. Five Seventeen says:

    Frank was right about Tony not being cut out to be a field agent. sheesh.

  6. sam says:

    it was the neck. i do remember jack saying that now. true.

    thanks, kyle.

    so, the neck is a bit more serious than an ear being blown off, i say.

    Good thing I watched this on Fox 5, none of those stupid interruptions. Just so Global keeps in real time, please gimme a break.

    Frank, why be that picky about where someone gets shot? he got shot, end of story, Gomez creates a scury so he and the kid gets out it doesn’t matter. I thought this was one of the better episodes in a real long time.

  8. Frank says:

    I’m not really being pedantic about where Tony got shot. I do think it was a little odd that Gomez wasn’t but a few metres away from him and Tony, a stationary target, and he didn’t kill him outright. And when I thought he was shot in the ear, I thought it was even odder. But now that we ALL know he was shot in the neck, we can move on with our lives.

    And yes, this was definitely one of the better episodes.
