24's Moral Absolutes

Here is a pathetic little rationalization that purports to explain why "24" isn't an inherently conservative show.

Please. The best the author can do is to argue that the program eschews "Bushian moral absolutes." Not so much. In "24," the terrorists are bad, and the guys who are trying to prevent them from killing innocent Americans are good.

Sounds pretty morally absolute to me.

"Muddy a terrorism thriller with liberal concern over root causes and you get Syriana, whose plot audiences couldn't follow with a GPS device."

You've got to admit that's a great line.
