Jericho: The Anti-Torture Show

Proof that some people in Hollywood have been paying attention to all the hoopla about the torture on 24, a line on last night’s Jericho:

What works is the fear of torture. Real torture – that only works in the movies.
It’s kind of a nice rejoinder to 24’s break-limbs-first-ask-questions-later methods. My only quibble is that, legally and ethically, threatening someone is mental torture, which is still torture.
