24 Season 8: Hitler Does Not Like This Season So Far...

For anyone unfamiliar with this internet fad, for a couple of years people have been taking a scene from the movie "Downfall" (in which Hitler berates his subordinates) and put in their own subtitles on any number of subjects ranging from sports, politics and entertainment. It's meant as satire, and not to make light of Nazi Germany or the Holocaust. Now that we have that out of the way, here's my playful take on Season 8's problems thus far:

:) :) :) Good one.
“Now, I think the cougar is too good for ‘24’”
“Let Renee and Dana commiserate about bad ex-boyfriends over a latte!”
“Like Jack Bauer would ever spend $895 on a manbag.”
“Her sassiness and personality disorder is chicken soup for my soul.”
You've got some great lines in there. I’d say it’s even better than the Michael Jackson and Sarah Palin versions. :)

Bravo Adam, Bravo! You hit every horrible nail right smack dab on the head. Yep, we'll all keep watching but the idea of Chloe O'Brien becoming President is pure gold!

My sister doesn't comment on blogs but I have to share this comment she sent me on this post: "Ann, the Jack Sack video it hysterical and right on the mark. This guy is a great editor as well as comedian. I’m a fan. -e"

Hope you're not embarrassed by these two old ladies following you:)

Adam said...

@Annie- You're never too old to be a groupie, right? Thank you and thank your sister for those really kind reviews.

I'm really happy everybody is enjoying this video.

That is just comedic genius.

Very well done.

Sunny said...

Wow, Adam this is awesome. Hitler took the words right out of my mouth. This is not the 24 I know and love. Season 6 is starting to look pretty good isn't it?

At least Jack still has his sack.
- Well, unless the writers castrate him in the next hour.

Good job!
Only problem is a European would never use the term "eurotrash".

Rickey Henderson said...

Well done, man, bra-freaking-o.

Rickey finally got to watch Monday's ep and was also let down. With all the abusive relationship storylines, they might as well rename Season 8: "MEN SUCK." When did "24" turn into a Lifetime Original movie?

...no worries, mate....

..I have found to my surprise that 'Chuck' has taken over the undercover TV spy entertainment for me this year!!

(.....seasoned lightly with the occasional 'Burn Notice'..)

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME.

Great job. As everybody has said above, you nailed what's wrong. And this is hilarious.

Adam said...

To everyone-

Thanks for the feedback. I'm actually mixed on this season so far- I like some things (Cole Ortiz, Chloe, President Hassan) but the pacing seems all wrong so far. Jack spent an entire episode in a car two weeks ago! What's going on? And Annie Wersching, while awesome, is not the star of the show. And her dark history is a terrible piece of retconning. Lazy writing.

I'm still enjoying myself, but to be honest, if I didn't have this blog, I might not be watching it every week as a faithful viewer. I'm not a big TV person in general-- I prefer to watch movies, but "24" always felt like a 24-hour movie to me and that's what got me hooked.

I remember feeling like a bunch of episodes last season were filler. So far, most of the episodes this season are filler. I'm really feeling that "events occur in real time" aspect of the show... and it's not entertaining.

Brittany said...

:(

Disheartenment.

Oh, but P.S. - Granny Annie, I think you & your sister are super cute. :)

Adam said...

Well, my last comment coincided with me getting hit with a massive head cold, so I'm kinda cranky... well, crankier to be exact. :)

Brian Pelts said...

Made of win.

You know, unlike this season thus far.

Brittany said...

@Adam, that's a bummer & it's okay - everybody gets sick sometimes. Well...maybe everybody except Jack Bauer. ;)

You deserve a balloon (you know, "get well," helium, that whole shebang) but I think that's kind of impossible over a blog, so let's just let the sentiment remain. :)

Your "Hitler Does Not Like . . ." vid is timely, accurate, highly entertaining, and freakin' hilarious. Thanks for getting me through some of these Season 8 rough patches. Truly, I would like that Dana person to disintegrate. On Chloe's desk. And get sucked up by the little keyboard vacuum.

Ryan said...

I had been ignorant to the fact of just HOW bad this season actually was. I really enjoyed the scenes with Hassan and I'm actually starting to like the "good" Russian character storyline (the guy from Heroes season 2) but, aside from that, this season has really been a lot of garbage.

I was just talking to some friends last night and realized that the most action Jack has seen this season was in like the first 30 minutes of the first episode... I'm hoping we see a turn for the better soon.

Keep up the awesome work on the blogging, Adam, just about everything you've done is hilarious and on-point. This is a little late but the Hodges Marinara Sauce video is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen- not sure if thats your doing or not, but awesome work so far.

Adam said...

@Anonymous: Thank you very much. If I could animate the Dana Walsh disintegration scenario you describe, I would make a video of it, for sure. Unfortunately my skills are in Adobe Photoshop, not Illustrator! But we'll see...

@Ryan: Thank you too. I'm really happy you found the Hodges Marinara Sauce video- that was indeed my work. Anything not featuring a water-skiing squirrel on this site is my original video work, some also done last season with Almeidaisgod.com. I'm committed to blogging on "24" forever, please disregard any crankiness I displayed earlier in this discussion.

WAY BETTER than the original. KUDOS!!!!! And yes, Chloe better be prez by the end!

I got no clue who the heck you are lady/man but you are super talented and you have a great sense of humor.

You're also pretty spot on with season 8.

Bertie said...

I haven't come across this before, but am laughing out loud. That video was hilarious. I am going to be here every week for sure, I love 24 but groan out loud almost every week, glad other people feel the same way!

Adam said...

Thank you thank you! Please come back- I promise more of the same- and I'm really glad to gain you as a reader.

Is this still available somewhere? I saw it once and loved it!
