Hit ABC series Castle aired a 24 style episode last night in which the characters were tasked with finding a dirty bomb set to go off in New York City that same day. Castle tells his teenage daughter to leave the city but warns her not to call her boyfriend as word may spread and cause mass panic. Sound familiar yet?
A ruthless Homeland Security Agent (played by guest star Adrian Pasdar) repeatedly screamed out classic Jack Bauer catchphrase “WHERE IS THE BOMB?!” while aggressively interrogating a terrorist suspect. And if the 24 homages weren’t already obvious, two characters mentioned were named “Evan Bauer” and “Jack Cochran” (a reference to Jack Bauer and 24 producers Evan Katz & Robert Cochran). Nice!
