I cannot believe they killed Edgar Stiles (aka Louis Lombardi) on 24 last night!
Geek lovers around the world were brokenhearted as the big, fat, sweaty
doofus did his job better and faster than the prettier people around
His yearning for Chole O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub) — — was one of the
great unrequited love stories of all time. Edgar and Chole
loved/hated/respected each other as they saved the world through
breaking into computers.
You knew the show respected the Edgar Stiles
character because when he died the “24 Countdown Clock” was silent as
the seconds withdrew.
Louis Lombardi is a familiar face in television.
24 is one of the greatest shows on television even in its fifth season.
Mondays aren’t the same when Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) isn’t
shooting someone to get information to cure the free world from
terrorists as the Counter Terrorist Unit’s finest undercover rogue
The pleasure in watching Kiefer every week is he always speaks in a
whisper so you have to pay attention to every word he says or you’ll
miss out on important plot points and he plays a characters who won’t
hesitate to do the right thing even if it’s wrong and we feel the
conflict in Jack Bauer’s life-and-death job as our hero suffers the
station of a modern-day Job.
