Parody Song Title:

"I'm So Sick of '24'"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

It was groundbreaking TV
Many tuned in faithfully
To see Kiefer playing Jack
With the bad guys on his back
Now the show's become a bore
I'm so sick of "24"

Every hour was real time
Full of every kind of crime
Black man ran for president
Fought a crooked government
Now there's too much senseless gore
I'm so sick of "24"

More betrayal from within
And Jack's hooked on heroin
Daughter Kim is still a pain
And there's no plot that remains
I wish for the shows of yore
I'm so sick of "24"

Mari D - I didn't watch the show but a friend at work explained it to me a while back. Know the song, of course. So I take it from the title this is post #25 and I salute you for fitting that into the mix. And you even did it without using an "inside" theme. Good work. Geez, I just checked my calender and with the holidays and some days I'd already scheduled off after today I only have 1 more working day here. I'll probably be in over the holidays or weekend to look at the site and comment some, not sure if I'll be doing any new postings until after the first of the year. I probably will try to put together some sort of bio to post here. Somewhat awkward time to write it. "And what DO you DO for a living, my good felllow?" Beats the hell out of me. Still, life is more that just work, or at least it's supposed to be. OH, my friend was finally successfull at downloading all the "Amiright Tribute" songs and burning it onto a CD last night. He gave it to me as a XMAS present this morning along with a package of unknown content. It wasn't ticking. I'm going to listen to it at lunch time probably so you'll be hearing from me later today for sure.

Excellent parody about the most overrated, non-reality show on TV.

I'd give you 24 if I could vote three 8's. They should do an hour of Jack sleeping. It would peg about the same on the yawn meter as the rest of the episodes. Nice work Mari.

Thanks Guy, GK, and Paul! Have y'all heard about the "Jump the Shark" web site? For the uninitiated, that phrase refers to the point in the life of a TV show where it starts to go downhill. Its namesake is the episode of "Happy Days" where the Fonz jumps over a shark on his bike. BTW, Paul... congrats on YOUR 25th parody! And you don't have to list a job. Not every writer on this site has. Sounds like your job had jumped the shark anyway.

5-5-5!! Nice job! I used to be addicted to this show...for one season. Can't wait to tell an addicted friend about your parody.

I'm so glad Fox doesn't have the Super Bowl this year. I think the real reason the Yankees lost the World Series is that they were sick of all those damn "24" promos! Naw, I'm still blaming Jeff Weaver. Hope you like earthquakes, wildfires, mudslides and losses in L.A., ya bum!

Watched the first season then forgot about it; thanks for the update, it's nice to know I didn't miss anything. Oh, and well done as usual.

(already voted.) We watch the seasons in mini-marathons after they come out on DVD. Sounds like my thoughts that the series might suffer from a terminally boring case of "X-files syndrome" have been proven on target with the 3rd season. :( Unless the daughter dies in this season (and stays dead,) I may take heed of this parody skip the season 3 DVDs. Anyway, great job, Mari and thanks for the heads-up.

Mari D - Gosh, was I out of it yesterday? I FINALLY figured out the "jump the shark" reference JUST NOW! Yeah, the job is definitely "Jumping the shark". By June when the tent folds here in Torrance they will have shed 300+ years of experience and replaced it with about 20 total. Not my problem anymore, though. Ready to move on, just gotta figure out to what. Will be alright, regardless.

I just heard the show "24" has indeed Jumped The Shark, due to a revelation that everything that has happened thus far this season has been a fantasy concocted by Jack Bauer or something to that effect. Can anyone confirm this?
Mari D - December 31, 2003 - Report this comment
It's impossible to confirm the rumor about Jack's fantasy at this time, but there has been speculation that there are guest appearances on the next show from the old "Dallas" and "Newhart" casts.

Looks like I offended some fans of the show!
