Another 24 Blog

Wow last night was something! So many new threads to follow! The reappearance of Wayne Palmer was interesting, though will it be short-lived?
And are we really to believe that Audrey is the mole? Or have the terrorists set Jack up?
I liked the whole thing with the German intelligence guy--an interesting direction. LOVED when the PDA blew up!!!!!!
Karen Hayes--Karen Hughes?
The downside of last night's excellent episode was that I couldn't sleep for a good hour afterwards. Maybe Steve is right and we should stop watching the previews!

RIP Edgar

Another 24 Blog
Wow. I had been feeling a little bit disinterested in 24 after the past couple episodes. Last night was a whopper. The end was so well done. Chloe's silent scream and the beepless digital clock were clever.
Logan continues to be the ultimate flip flopper, like a dying fish flapping around on deck after being caught.
What did you all think?

Smart Jean Smart

So what did you all think about this week?
The First Lady was great as usual. Is she limo-riding her way to her demise? I think not! I think Lynn is feeling a wee bit anxious about "misplacing" his key card. Can we say misplaced aggression?

The Mall Threat

I must say, that I liked this week much better than last week -- especially watching Jack deal with the ethical dilemma inside the mall.

I also like how Audrey seemed to make a harsh criticism of theoretical utilitarian philosophy!

But Dick says this episode was slow compared to last week.

What do you think?

How can this be?

I actually have to say that I was bored with Monday's show. That is the first time ever that I can unfortunately say that.

Someone, show me how I am wrong and that I am missing something really important here.

Am I that much in need of guts, blood, and torture that when I actually see a 24 show that has dialogue and serious plot development, that I complain.

Someone throw me a bone here and enlighten me!

Home Again!

Once again, I find myself in the comfortable terrain of having an external enemy to hate, as portrayed by 24. I was getting a little squeemish with this whole "5th Column" - traitor withing - who's the mole? - etc., type of mental game that Jack and his cohorts were playing on us. It required way too much national self-examiniation.

And, since not letting the Cold War die seems to be a national pasttime, as if evidenced by our current military buildup, I am so happy to once again be hating those punk-ass Russians! They and their vodka, and demagoguery, and nasty haircuts! Bring on the traditional badguy! That will tell Putin in not so subtle ways that we're getting sick of his invasions into the land of democratic self-rule!

I am possessed with the fact that 24 is actually an ongoing allegory as to upcoming foreign policy measure made by the Bush Adminstration. Its kinda like in a Beautiful Mind when John Nash is convinced that the defense department is using him to uncode a secret message out there in newspapers. This time, its Condolezza Rice (instead of Ed Harris) who keeps visiting me in my dreams (don't tell Leen) and is telling me what parts of 24 are actually code for Bush's next foreign policy broohaha. Stay posted!

Here's Condi's revelation from the last show: Cummings is actually Don Rumsfeld!

Canisters Schmanisters!

Now we had the fake-out at the airport to cover for the canisters, but is that really the plot? Nerve gas?

Surely the nerve gas situation is also the cover for a third or fourth layer of devilment from the main terrorist guy who uses his cell phone a lot.

So let's leave speculations in this strand's comments!

I'm wondering what other manuscript inconsistencies President Palmer's brother will find, or are they just going to write him off the show?

I remember last season, when bitchy lady running CTU with the crazy kid had her kid slash her wrists. Edgar noticed an INCONSISTENCY in the coverage of the doctors, but it was just a red herring...

Is that what they did to the brother, or will he discover something?

Logan!

After last night's show, I am just left wondering at the profound ineptitude of media-pandering President Manilow.

His character perfectly embodies all that makes me angry about stupid people!

At the end of the day, will he really still be the President? Surely he needs to have a break-down, or a comprehensive ass-whooping!
