Re: 24 Day 7: 6:00PM - 8:00PM: Discussion and Spoilers
Setting S1 in 2001 is, well, silly since it's an election year as established by the day's events.
Sorry, that was my mistake, not the article I quoted. I meant to say "in the next election year after the show premiered in 2001." I fixed it in the post.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
