No problem here overlooking some of the lapses of reality. My only gripe is that when Jack Bauer says "Dont kill him, he is the wrong guy" why wouldn't they say "okay, good enough for me" The guy has saved the country countless times from terrorists yet they still refuse to listen to him... Geesh.

Great show. Psyched it's back.

Why is Wayne President?

Who was the FBI agent trying to get the employee files from Palmer's sister? I'm picturing him in a role with long hair.

Solid first two hours. Vampire Jack rules!
See post # 104. he was on Oz with long hair for many seasons.

Yup, seems to happen every year. New people don't give Jack the benefit of the doubt the first time out until they see for themselves. Wayne should know better.

Thank you! That was driving me nuts... we looked so familiar but I couldn't figure out why.

I pray the item they refer to in that article makes it to the DVD.

I could have sworn that was Star Trek: Voyager's Robert Duncan McNeill playing the one FBI guy...but I guess it was another actor.

The end door on subway cars are hinged not sliders.

I'll have to rewatch it, but I'm pretty sure in the subway scene, it does not show them getting into the end car.

Well, regarding the problem with trusting Jack in this episode...

He's been tortured by the Chinese for two years. They don't know if they can trust him mentally. Plus, how would they know if the dude was telling Jack the truth, or just feeding him a line? And they don't know how Jack escaped...not an easy decision...

I saw these episodes already on the leaked DVD and saw two scenes I dont remember them showing last night. First one was when the kid tried to give Akkkkmed the friendship bracelet and second one was when Jack was being tortured and they stabbed him in the back (looked like it was around the kidney area) after they stabbed him in the shoulder.
Oh yeah and wasnt Stan the contractor (guy who beats up Akmed) the football player from Cant Buy Me Love?

Yeah, that was the guy. He used to fart all the time ( loved the scene where "cool" Ronald redirected him to fart in the car while his brother was hiding in the back ).

They did indeed show both scenes last night.

The first one was outside the door of the kid's home, in which Kumar said he couldn't take it because the kid might need it one day.

The second one did happen as well. They used... some sort of long, snake like device.

Several questions ...

1. What the hell did Palmer give the Chinese for them to hand over Jack? Military, Economic, Etc. A future season storyline?

2. Why do they have a guy, at this point unknown as good or bad, that looks like Sen. Barack Obama in last nights episode? He's playing Palmer's sister; husband, boyfriend, friend with benefits.

3. Doesn't the FBI know, that those "shredded" files have backups somewhere? Either off-site data storage facility or on some form of media or another server.

4. And again, Sen. Barack Obama has a twin?

5. Did Jack have his lung punctured with that long device jammed into his back? If that was the case, he must have used some fix-a-flat from the trunk of the car he stole.

Good Will Hunting. That's it! I'd seen him in a few things, but the pony tail was what came to mind. Thank you.

I have no problems sitting back and enjoying the show. I turn the other way at plot holes and devices for the sake of edge of your seat entertainment but this one definitely bugs me. In the back of my mind I knew they wouldn't explain how Whayne is president, but I am still disappointed. Sympathy vote? Can't trust the democrats after Logan, so hit up the grieving Palmer family for someone unqualified to lead the country? Come on.

Also convenient that the whole Chinese cliffhanger/18 months of torture was solved in roughly 5 minutes. I had hopes for that plotline as well.

Oh well, it is season 6. I knew better than to expect rationale explanations.

Who thought it was funny that the cell phone Jack used in the car he broke into happened to have the ability to log on and download a satelite image of Assad's location.

Great stuff, even though it was ridiculous as hell.

Just checked the futon critic and looks like 24's ratings were down from last season. 16% in households and 19% in the 18-49 bracket. That's very disappointing. Now I'm thinking those damn leaked episodes actually hurt the premiere.

NFL overrun and Deperate Housewives beat it for the top spots.

Hopefully tonight's episodes will fair better.

Yes, the DVD of the first four shows was out to A LOT of people, who no doubt shared it with a lot of other people.

RE: A question above. I too, wonder what President Palmer gave to the Chinese in exchange for Jack. I'm guessing we'll find out later this year or in a future season.

Also, is Bauer going to have those scars from now on...or do you think they'll magically disappear in Season 7? No problem with the back scars, since he can always keep his shirt on, but those hand scars are going to be a bitch for the make-up dept. should they have to apply them from now on.

Oddly enough, a lot of people I talked to didn't realize it premiered last night, they thought it was Monday and Tuesday, not Sunday and Monday. I also think it was a mistake to launch it on the night before a national holiday, all the college kids were drinking, not watching tv. (Desperate Housewives also nosedived last night)

How does Nielson take into account recording shows with Tivo. I watched the episodes early, but my Tivo still recorded last night because of the season pass (so I rewatched the best parts and the rest on fast forward). Would that "count" if I were a Nielson family?

I guess the real test will be what are the ratings after this week--if there's a surge, leaking the episodes might prove to be a good thing.

That's very odd....I guess those people you talked to don't watch FOX on a regular basis and haven't seen the millions of promos saying clearly "January 14th at 8pm"

But, that doesn't surprise me, no matter how many billboards and promos there are, there will always be 1 or 2 people who will claim they didn't know it was on.

IIRC, they don't take DVRs into account, since people with DVRs are likely to skip the commercials. Also, unless you have a Nielsen box or have been contacted by them to be part of the ratings households, you aren't.

Remember, it's like 2011 or so in 24's timeline so maybe file shredding is quicker, traffic is lighter, injuries heal faster, things are more convenient, etc. in the future.
