My son the genius (updated X 2)

The Boy is bright, no doubt about it. He's the most annoying person I've ever met, but the kid is smart. Smart and curious. Smart and devious. Smart and manipulative. He knows every one of my buttons and he pushes them often. As much as he can, in fact. He has the sophmoric idea that he's in charge and he thinks it's just fine to tell me what to do, or what he thinks. His vocabulary, which used to be brilliant, has been reduced to the "f" word and various other delightful insults. But...

When he makes up his mind to do something, I've never seen anyone so focussed. Hyperfocussed. This can be horrendously irritating, like when he's supposed to do something and no matter how may times you nag remind him of his impending chore, he doesn't hear because he's doing something he deems important. You know, like most guys.

Today, while I was malingering in bed trying to make up the lost sleep, he decided that he was going to find Hour 1 of 24-Season 6, which has not yet aired on Fox. And damn if he didn't. The child, well, let us just say he is serious about 24.

Yes, we watched it. He also tried to download the bittorrent of Hours 2-4, all of which were available for a short period of time, but they didn't work. But damn, isn't it just too cool that we got to see the first show before Fox even released it?

Season 6 is looking pretty good, from what we've seen so far. Slow start, but the end...the bite... oh man, my heart was thumping.

I love me some Jack Bauer.

Update: He's now found, and we've watched Hour 2. My feeling is, so far this new season starts out a tiny bit slow, but BAM! it moves right into the 24 we all know and love. The new 'advisor' to the new President is gonna seem mighty familiar. Not just the actor, but the behavior. It takes all of 5 seconds to begin to hate him. A couple of good new characters, and the return of some old favorites, plus some folks that were bit parts in other seasons come back with much bigger roles. I promise, you're gonna love this season.

Update 2: We're finished with Hours 3 and 4, and oh my lordy, this is one fabulous season. Some rough edges, for sure, that will probably be ironed out when we see the legal airing next week, but damn this is one exciting season so far.
