At issue is a scene in which a teenager helps his parents plot to kill Americans. "What we will accomplish today will change the world," the father tells the son over breakfast. "We are fortunate that our family has been chosen to do this."

CAIRís Rabiah Ahmed said the scene "casts a cloud of suspicion over every American-Muslim family out there."
So instead of bitching about a fictional tv show, why not do something useful and address the real terrorists, you know solve the worlds problems. This is about as useful as Dan Quayle attacking Murphy Brown.

I was really glad to see they ditched the rest of the cast--something that I think they should have been done in season 2. It was hard to take all the twists and turns they had to make to keep Kim in the cast, for example, and I'm sooo glad she's gone (and not just because she was annoying, but also because the way they wove her story in was so implausible.)

I do think this is getting somewhat predictable though. It was entertaining, but it's almost as if we know Jack too well (and as someone said, the pattern is matching season 2 very closely.) I almost wonder if every character is expendable, and that it should be a different agent every year (not that tv execs would go for that.)

I knew it was the wife of House of Sand and Fog, but I didn't know it was the kid until I just read it. That's too interesting. Wow, it would have been awesome if they had only gotten Ben Kingsley.

I thought the dad in that family had a strange voice-- it almost seemed like his voice was dubbed, it didn't seem to match his face & body.
