So fire the actual professionals and replace them with idiots. New media has so much to answer for.

I just canceled my subscription that I had with them for many years, becuase I got sick of the liberal slant on everything having to due with enttertainment news. Glad to know I am not the only one in hating what they have become.

Yeah, I was wondering about that too.

The other thing that bothered me was Kate: "My husband" "My husband" "My husband" "My husband" "My husband" "My husband" "My husband". Was just really repetitive and unnatural. Obviously Navarro would have known the guy's name. I don't think she used his actual name once. Do we even know what it is? Maybe she doesn't either? :)

Great ep though, and bummed that there's only two to go.

I usually catch stuff like that when people overly say someone's name to remind the audience, but yeah, that's equally as bad, when there's not even a name mentioned the whole episode, but rather a title.

No more repetitive than using a characters full name every time they're referred to. :brickwl2: :gah:

I too was like WTF! when Chang showed his face. Makes me wonder if others call backs are in the cards for the last two.

Just watched it. Another great episode. This season is fan service at its finest. I have no idea if EW Radio was right or wrong, but I sincerely hope this isn't the end of 24 because it's SO good this year.

Still waiting on my time jump :grumble:

BTW : What info can a super-hacker uncover to prove that a fatal car crash was really just an accident? I mean I get how you can uncover a conspiracy, but how do you definitively prove a lack of conspiracy?

This was definitely a great episode, it was a lot of fun as it unfolded. EW has been on the decline for years, the magazine business is dying. I doubt it lasts much longer in print form.

Not much of anything will last much longer in print form, I fear :(.

Well, the original discussion was about the people on EW Radio on SiriusXM. If the writers at the magazine are as generally clueless about entertainment as their radio hosts (there is some overlap), then it wouldn't be surprising to see the magazine fail.

If that were the case, Chloe would have already done it herself!
