24: The Vampire Connection

Monday's episode of 24 raised some interesting issues. Most prominantly, everyone in the show has played a vampire or been associated with vampires at some point. First, Kiefer was obviously a vampire in The Lost Boys. The villain he will probably face this season in 24 (the mysterious guy who sits in the dark) was Nick Knight, the zany Canadian vampire cop in the TV show Forever Knight. In Monday's episode, the bad guys, including the evil man in the yellow tie, encounter a mechanic to help them open a bomb thing. Who was the mechanic? None other than Cash from the short-lived vampire show Kindred: The Embraced. Not only that, but he was Xander's zombie friend in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Speaking of which, the creator of Buffy, Joss Whedon, also created Firefly. Firefly had a recurring character named Badger, played by Mark Sheppard: the man in the yellow tie in 24!

What does this all mean? My prediction is that the nerve gas will be released in 24, but it will have an unexpected effect. Like in 28 Days Later (24...28...both are numbers!), it will turn everyone into violent vampire-zombies. I call them Zompires. Kiefer will have to show them the error of their ways...through torture and political deals!

Man, I can't wait.

P.S. Death by stereo!
