Twenty Four (24) -- "8:00pm to 9:00pm" -- 3/9/09

Jack Bauer

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


General Juma (Tony Todd) takes over Dubaku's attacks on America, and Jack tries to prevent a high-impact terror threat in the U.S.




Going out of town for a few days. I'm doing a few Monday threads that will probably get the most traffic.

See ya all back on Wednesday. Going on a well deserved vacation from work.

I thought that was one of the best episodes of 24 in a looong time. That guy who killed Burnett was a badass, I hope we see more of him.

i wonder if anyone told the president that jack and bill are responsible for her safety. you would think she would allow jack to follow any lead. especially now. the miss communication in this episode was really bad. the moss character is getting to be unbelievable and just ridiculous. he disobeys the vice president's order but still thinks he's always in the right.

Entertainment Weekly -- in their Spring TV Review wrap-up -- said that Olivia...

Spoiler:
... is more of a villain that Sheri Palmer ever was.


... and that ...

Spoiler:
Kim will be back... with her husband and daughter.


The ep was great tonight, and I'll echo what's already been said:



Spoiler:
Bill... you will be missed.


Also, from the conversation between Olivia and Aaron at the end, I wonder what happened...

Spoiler:
Mrs. Logan


Bring on 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

Best moment was when Olivia flipped the script on Ethan.

olivia is a biatch but I do agree with her. the security under ethan's watch has been a joke. all she said is that she will uncover the people in the administration that are responsible for this. she has a point. no bs kind of girl. she would understand what people like jack are trying to do.

This is normal for 24. Those who should be helping Jack are always against him.

Wow that was an amazing opening 10 minutes. Did anyone else notice that Bill had a wedding ring on? Has he always had it or was it a gaffe?

*edit - I can't give enough props to Sean Callery this season. This episode has some excellent music cues.

I think Jon Voight said it all tonight:

"Now we're having some fun."

When he said that guy was good, he wasn't kidding.

Good episode. Enjoyed this recap of last week's 24 from Dave Barry...
Last week was without question one of the finest 24 episodes in the history of the world, and the reason can be stated in just eight words: The White House was taken over by frogmen.

This was possible because of the following little-known facts:

1. The White House is much closer to the Potomac River than it appears to the naked eye. If the president had a decent casting rod, he or she could fish in the Potomac out the Oval Office window.

2. The White House is connected to the Potomac by an abandoned but well-maintained underwater express tunnel that nobody ever noticed before.

3. During a full-scale terrorist alert, it is possible for a boat full of enemy solders to motor up the Potomac to the White House without being noticed, as long as they are wearing camouflage.

4. Trained frogmen wearing soldier outfits under their wetsuits can swim underwater at a speed of approximately 50 miles per hour while carrying a large concrete-penetrating drill, explosives, combat boots, a laptop computer and automatic weapons with enough ammunition to fight a war.

Also as luck would have it, when the frogmen swam underneath and drilled into the basement, there was hardly anybody guarding the White House, because everybody was busy trying to figure out what would be the target of the impending terrorist attack on Washington. Everybody was like, "Where the HECK are those darned terrorists going to attack? It's got to be something important, something connected with the federal government, something right here in Washington... but what could it be? Maybe we should send troops to guard the Air and Space Museum!"

According to Bauer Count, Jack's up to 14 kills, not counting tonight's episode.

Boy, that Larry Moss sure can run those FBI lock downs. That's two hospital patients in protective custody that he's lost this year.

I'm not sure if I buy Sprague Grayden as a "bitch" character. Sure Anita in Six Feet Under could be bitchy, but I always liked her anyway. At least they have established a softer side with Pierce. I just hope they don't turn her full on villain.

As for tonight's loss...the character had run it's course so for plot lines it's not a big deal. I just wish for once that a liked character could just get written out and not killed. Everybody doesn't have to die. In seven years of 24 the only well liked characters they haven't killed yet are pretty much Jack, Aaron Pierce and Chloe (Tony already died once). And maybe Heller and Mike.

Everyone else still alive was eh or I wish they were dead.
