To Russia, With Love 2

I don’t know why the story of the British super high-tech spy rocks amuses me so, but it really does.

I think it’s because something that seems like it’s from a bad James Bond movie might actually exist in real life.

It sort of reminded me of when the Daily Show recently had a former director of the CIA on (Porter Goss? I can’t remember) and when Jon Stewart joked about the CIA using poison-tipped umbrellas, he said with a straight face, “No, that was the Bulgarians.”

    Speaking of Russia.

    The Chechnyan plot line as “randome ethnic terrorist of the year” in 24? Huh. That’s different. Not necessarily good, but different.

    I don’t think they’re explicitly Chechnyan. Obviously, it’s the model, but I don’t think they can use the actual name of the country without getting into some deep political shit.

    I think TWoP got it about right when it declared they’re from Terroristan.
