This show is like a parody of itself this season.
Another crooked CTU employee and a crazy Vice President. Oh Brother!

I've been referring to RainMan as "[RainMan] ex machina", except with a little less friendly word in place of "RainMan". It really is an ex machina though: have a character show up to serve a single purpose for a single episode and then wish them away to 24 character neverneverland...

Can what Milo did to Nadia be considered assault? Also, are we ever going to find out how Jack Bauer's 90 year old father disappeared quietly in seconds as if he were Batman?

This season has been dreadful, Regina King is fugly, and Karen Hayes is a worthless character.

In real life, yes. In television and movies, it's romantic.

The only thing that kiss needed to be extra silly was Milo saying, "Give me some sugar baby."

Gotta love the way it looked like they were in a private spot, then there was a cut to another angle showing them in full view of the entire CTU work area.

Going into January, and especially after the 4 hour premiere, I was very excited about 24 and inches away from bailing on Lost. Now I'm losing interest in this season's 24 and more curious about what will happen next on Lost. A complete turnaround. Not sure if I would have felt the same about 24 if I hadn't read the weekly threads, but since it was pointed out how much this is repeating situations from previous seasons I really notice that. Not sure how I would feel about 24 if I hadn't seen previous seasons. Maybe it would stand on its own better that way.

Also, wasn't Milo in a sling before? I noticed he had taken it off before his little make out session.

He unstrapped it to attack Rickey Stratton

well then again, shouldn't his arm hurt when he put it around Nadia? He did indeed get a gunshot wound (well, doesn't chloe keep touching Morris's bad shoulder?)

Well he did take it off to assault Doyle. I guess afterward, his arm felt fine. After all, it's been a few hours since he's been shot, just like it's been a few hours since Morris was literally drilled. I guess they've both picked up Jack's amazing regenerative powers.

My mom has two co-workers who just jumped on board this season and think it is the greatest show ever.

I still think this season is better than Season 3...(Although they do need to layoff the repeating storylines)

Here for those that didn't link to Dave's Blog:

From all the complaints I've read here and elsewhere, I made the right decision in picking Heroes over 24 many weeks ago. I haven't watched an episode since the fifth one where Graham was revealed to be Jack's brother.

South Park this week was a better...and more believable...24 episode than the real 24 was.
