24: Legacy

What started out as a mess, ended strong.

As with previous seasons of 24, there were simply too many story lines going on, that ultimately all tied together, albeit by simply ending halfway into this season.

The 12-episode format serves this show well now, with no room for filler episodes, like the first 8 seasons.

There were moments of sheer stupidity and disbelief, but somehow they pulled it all to a good ending.  The first few minutes of the finale were the best of the season.

Overall, I liked it.  I hope it does return for another (mid)season.  I only ask that we get some new bad guys from another region of the world.


I received so many items for so many different games yesterday, and stupidly tried to go through all of them last night.

Big mistake.

I couldn’t focus on one thing or another, in addition to attempting to play the second mission of the Phantom Leader campaign that I started.  It was a total failure, all planes shot down, but only because I forgot to employ a couple of rules, like pilot EVADE.  Whoops.

I guess I’ll rerun the mission sometime soon.

I sorted the cards and punched the counters for Warfighter.  I skimmed the rules.

I attempted to figure out how to run a fight in the Batman Miniatures Game.  I also found a box to store all the miscellaneous markers and templates for the game.

I opened up the Starfire Gorm-Khanate War expansion.  I almost punched the counters.

I assembled and primed the miniatures that I got from Crossover Miniatures, including the one I’m using for The Koala in Mutants and Masterminds.

Meanwhile, I was watching the Warriors/Thunder game, Supergirl and 24: Legacy.  Good to see Oded Fehr back on TV.

There’s simply not enough time in a day to do everything that I’d like to do.

As a side note, this morning I ordered a few counter trays for all the wargames that I’ve picked up in the last couple of weeks.  Odd that you’d have to pay extra for counter trays, they used to come with the games, back in the day.

And Knight Models got back to me regarding the Superman miniature defect, they’ll be sending me a replacement part in a couple of weeks, so I’ll just put off assembly until then.  Yay!

All this with baseball approaching.

See why I can’t podcast?

TV Viewing

Crap, 24: Legacy is on Monday nights, opposite Supergirl.

Yeah, I can DVR one or the other, or have them magically appear on my PC, but Dad will want to watch 24.

Super Bowl Sunday!

So that was one helluva game.

To be honest, I was just rooting for the Pats to lose.  But what a comeback.


24: Legacy was a lot better than I was expecting it to be.


It still takes me quite a while to play a game of Second Season football.  I was distracted by the actually football game, though, and I just finished the 1st quarter at the end of the real game.


Game Day food was BBQ pulled pork sliders.
