In SFO, they had a direct feed of KTVU to Comcast - not OTA via Sutro. It was put in right before the Superbowl 2 years ago.

Watched back-to-back episodes last night and didn't have time to worry about checking my brain at the door. Great start! Flaws? Hell yes, but WGAS. The fastest 4 hours of TV I've ever watched (yeah, they've added 5 more minutes of commercials per ep.). The music continues to add so much tension. Still a great show!

Let me be the first to say Presidential Advisor Tom Lennox is the White House mole. For longtime 24 followers, the following exchange between Lennox and Palmer after agreeing to a full pardon for Assad should be a dead giveaway.

Close-up of Lennox and then of Palmer.

Lennox: I still don't like it.

Palmer: I understand. And it makes me appreciate your loyalty all the more, Tom.

The first of what will be many hints along the way. Keep your eyes peeled.

Hey, no one mentioned Milo is back. It was S1 when he last appeared, although, I was thinking it was S4. My, how time fly's when you're having fun.

I don't think anyone mentioned yet that we did see the leader of the "bluetooth group" in the preview, so I guess we'll still find out what they are up to.

Did anyone notice that Numair was wearing an orange jumpsuit as the clock hit 9:00 AM, but when he arrived at Fayed's safe house he was wearing a blue-grey jacket, shirt and pants? Did he slide down the batpole while running to the safehouse?

Also, when Roger Cross's name appeared in the credits as a "guest star" at the beginning of 0601, I said "Oh, no. They're going to kill Curtis this day." I didn't know it was going to be so quick. I think this leaves only KS as the only regular from Day 1 left on the show, with MJR as the only regular from Day 2 left.

There is one question that I have that I don't think was ever explained. The president in Day 4, I thought, survived the AF1 plane crash, but Logan remained president through Day 4 and Day 5. Did I miss something? Help would be appreciated - TIA.

Changed in the car? The bigger question is how he managed to get off the premises and changed in 10 minutes.

I didn't even notice his being a guest star until last night. By MJR, I am assuming you mean Chloe, but she didn't show up until Day 3. Everyone from day 1 and 2 is gone, except Jack of course.

I think he must have been injured to the point that he couldn't come back. But you're right, they hinted that he was still alive, but never really covered the extent of his injuries.

Random thoughts / observations / responses:

A very large number of consumer grade cell phones can easily return a street map from lat/long. My cell phone received FCC approval nearly three years ago and does it easily. The key is a data package / internet access / WAP access.

Kal Penn was slightly miscast or the role should have be rewritten for him. Achmed (being a varient of the most standard Ahmed) is an Arabic name and the role appeared to have been written for an Arab as opposed to an Indian (or even a Gujarati). Casting Indians as Arabs (ala Lost) is kind of annoying. Just rewrite it as an Islamic Indian, especially considering that India has more than 6 times the Muslim population than Saudia Arabia.

I don't know why someone complained that Nadia didn't look Arabic. I mean I speak Spanish and I don't look like a Spaniard.

And velocity doesn't move you forward in time. Higher velocities makes you experience time at a slower rate than those you're measuring your velocity relative to.

I hate to say it, but I'm glad they killed of Curtis. He's been along side Jack through way to many bombings, shootings, knifings, etc without a scratch.

Curtis didn't ide..he is out of commision and done with CTU..might as well be dead.
post #219 of 2010
The thing about this show (once you check your sense of reality at the begining), is thatwhen they kill off a main character, it is always bittersweet, the only main character that went off in a blaze of glory, was the dude who flew the plane with the nuke into the desert, but he was dying from radiation poisioning anyway.

I remember Jack having to shoot his boss in the head.....that was almost as much of a shocker as last night, I did not see that coming, I thought for sure Curtis was gonna plug Assad.
post #220 of 2010
Considering that Curtis didn't appear until day 4, I don't see how that changes anything. Tony was the last remaining regular from day 1 besides Jack to be knocked off if my memory serves me correctly. Who is MJR? If it is Chloe (MLR) She didn't make an appearance until day 3 when Jack was trying to get off his drug addiction.

Also Aaron Pierce is still able to come back to the show. I don't know if he will or not but if he does he will have appeared in all 6 seasons as well.
post #221 of 2010
I wonder how many bonehead decisions President Palmer is going to make this season. Maybe he will give his sister to the terrorists in exchange for a promise not to use the next nuke during a Laker game.

Well, Adoni Maropis (Fayed) is Greek, but looks like a bad guy...I'm sure that's close enough for the majority of Americans watching this show.

I hated to see Curtis go, but in the world of 24 he far outlived the life expectancy of the people that come in contact with Jack Bauer.
post #224 of 2010
damn, at the rate the writers are writing off previous seasons' cast members, I expect Buchanen to die by the end of this season, and who knows how much longer Chloe has to live. If she goes, hopefully it'll be Rambo style like she did with the machine gun (can't remember if that was last season or the one before).

Great episodes so far, but the one "filler" I couldn't stand was when Chloe had to step in and break up the spat between Milo and Morris, where we find out the Chloe dated Milo before Morris. Once that was done, all of a sudden the two boys were good friends again. Blah, horrible writing there...

One other thing, do the other 4 nukes really have to be in LA ? C'mon terrorists/writers/producers, can't you place nukes in other cities across the country ?

You're right and Chloe should feel fortunate she is a fan favorite. Otherwise, she probably would have met an unexpected demise many seasons ago.

I know it doesn't make sense to want to leave a hit show but I am curious to know if he asked out? It wasn't exactly a dynamic character he was playing.

I meant he should have tried to talk Curtis down, and if that didn't work, he shouldn't have shot him - even if that beheading bastard got popped.

Thanks I appreciate you doing this. I for one don't like being tempted and also don't like to stumble across things by accident as I did with the Curtis killing last night although I didn't know it was him I knew someone was going.

If my guess counts as a spoiler, please delete.


I've been trying to convince my viewing posse that Tony's not dead, he was my favorite character aside from Jack so I hope it's true.

Long Live his Cubs Mug!
Death to Chloe!

From Fox's 24 website episode recap:

9:55 A.M.
Jack drops his gun and raises his hands in a gesture not of surrender but of despair at Curtis's death. Jack walks away in tears. He vomits and falls to the ground.

Not sure I'd consider that a boneheaded move - whether or not the nuke was set off anyway.

My money says that Edgar comes back from the dead to save the day; slim, lisp-free and ready to KICK ASS

Or KICK ATH if I was wrong about the lisp...

They showed a commercial during the show that said that you could go out and purchase the first 4 hours on dvd today

anyone else notice that or have any idea on the price?????
post #236 of 2010
I think Jack and Jillian (Scotts mom) will get together(romanticly) sometime in a future episode. Jack had always has a romantic tie or 2.

Jack and Jillian went up the hillian to fetch a terrorist or 2 some wata...
