Exactly. I was a little weary of this actress going into the season playing the President, but she's been as bad as I expected and then some.


Jack should have just opened the safe room door just enough to get his gun out to shoot the daughter in the head.

After they have been pushing on us the whole "Jack is evil - Jack tortures people - Jack is the worst human being" on us ON TOP of them just showing us him torturing a guy for info there is NO WAY he would just casually open the safe room door to let the President get captured.

I can only hope that the President mistakes a stick of dynamite for her tampon.
Are you criticizing the character of President Taylor or the actress playing the character (Cherry Jones)? I can't figure that out.

There are levels to unbelievability. If John McClain stopping his fall down the vent by grabbing a ledge with his fingertips is a 1, and Keanu Reeves jumping a missing section of bridge in a friggin bus is a 10, Monday's episode of 24 was a 50.

Just finished this week's episode......wow, Bill completely choked. I was fully expecting him to pull something out of his ass or at least make an attempt, but instead he just sat there like a bump on a log.

Also, still confused why Jack had to put the sleeper hold on Bill earlier.

Ah, okay, I guess that makes sense. Bill certainly didn't seem to hold it against him.

Also, still disappointed Bill didn't pull something out of his ass when everyone was being held hostage. They certainly built it up like he was contemplating some elaborate plan, but nothing.

This is about the time every season I start having a hard time making it through the season. I have always wished they called this show 8 or 10 or 12 of something instead of 24. So many episodes make it tough for me to stay interested to the end.

Last nights episode was a "on the edge of your seat" start to it then after killing the hostiles and securing the President, it slowed waaaay down.

I just started kind of watching the show this season. Thoughts:

You really have to suspend reality to believe all this crap could happen in one day. The Presidents husband gets beaten almost to death, domestic terrorists raid an embassy, trapping the country's leader in a vault, vault is breached, car chase car chase car chase, Plane crashes outside Washington killing civilians... one hour later White House is breached, hostages taken, President hides in a safety vault with Jack Bauer, until they threaten to carve up her daughter....big ass explosions...all the terrorists inside die, then a PRESS CONFERENCE IS HELD INSIDE the White House an hour later after the inside was all shot to Hell?.... Huh???

The FBI has an internal security leak, a bad guy wipes all the hard drives, they don't TOTALLY LOCK DOWN the place and send everybody home? Then a US Senator gets shot to death in the doorway of his home, meanwhile Bauer drives off in a semi loaded with biological WMDs....

All this in less than one day?

Jesus, what does the nightly news lead off with THAT night???

Like I said, serious suspension of reality. If they called the show 30 DAYS it would be hard to have all this happen in that time frame.

Last night when the wind was howling at 50mph, the digital cable kept pixilating and freezing up. Made it impossible to watch 24. I saw some of it, although the picture would freeze and jerk around every 2 or 3 minutes. I'll have to catch the re-run.

This. Having said that, Seasons 5 & 6 (I'm pretty sure it was those two but could have been 4.) were too insulting to watch. I'm not sure why I gave this season a go, but I've been happier.

It has to be the actress. Every time she talks, I just want to punch her in her big face.


This x 1 gazillion.

It is getting ****ing annoying.

More annoying, to me, was that immediately after making her daughter active chief of staff and finding out that Jack wasn't responsible, her immediate decision wasn't "let's get back my trusted main main that I know and love and was about to reject his resignation and one that I haven't signed yet." The fact he didn't show up in that hour killed me. It was almost more insulting than the White House assault. Almost.



Wife & I said that last night after watching last Monday's episode & preview of this week.....uhhh, Jack isn't going to die - why even waste screen time with it.

Well, it's an interesting twist because they've always said they might kill off Jack. And Jack has one more year in his contract. So perhaps they will, actually. Who knows.

The episode Bauer dies (and I'll assume they won't pull a Tony Almeida out of their hat) is the episode I stop watching.

Jack Bauer is like a God to me now...taking down terrorist after terrorist with merely a pistol...when he runs out of ammo using his pistol like a ninja throwing star...10,000,000 different ways to knock someone out...his ability to make even the most evil terrorist give exact information without trying to play him...

You know what the most bothersome moment of '24' was?

Season 1 Episode 23

When Nina Myers turned out to be a traitor...

That was just out of left field...halfway through the god damn season they ordered Jack to KILL Nina Myers only for Jack to save her life by putting a bulletproof vest on her...

Why would they want to kill off their biggest asset who was literally Jack's "right-hand man"?

It made no sense...I know they started dropping hints after that and if you re-watch the season it starts to make A LITTLE sense...but that plot twist will always bother me.

As well as Wayne Palmer being the President....as well as one season Wayne Palmer working aside Bauer only to simply disappear the next episode and to never turn up again...

AND Logan working With Bauer's brother...and for them not to release that until the next season...I realize they are putting out over 15 hours of footage each season...but they definitely pull a lot of rabbits out of hats.

Really? And they still doubt him? Holy fucking shit!

All things considered...HOW?!?!?!

It bothered me SO much...I was so into that season...(I watched it in the span of two or three days)...they ordered Jack to KILL her...why in God's name would you kill the KEY to your inside information?

If you go back and watch it it didn't start making sense until they found a way for it to make sense (her killing that one analyst rather than the analyst killing herself...)

I was so bothered after that episode where she became the mole...

However the end where Bauer thought Kim was dead and went on his rampage was EPIC.

David Palmer was an awesome president, too. Every since Palmer has sucked ass...the chick has been solid so far, I guess...but everyone else was god awful TAKE A LAP!

Yeah, Tony is not on "the other side" as in Starkwood. He's apparently been on his own this entire time (or with an outside terrorist group), in deep cover on Juma's payroll to gain access to Starkwood somehow.

By Gary Levin (http://www.usatoday.com/community/tags/reporter.aspx?id=219), USA TODAY
Finally, Jack meets Jonas.
Monday's 24 showdown between hero Jack Bauer and one of the show's more memorable villains, Jonas Hodges, gives star Kiefer Sutherland face time with Jon Voight. Hodges heads Starkwood, a shadowy military contractor gone rogue with bioweapons.
Voight, in his first role in a TV series since the late '60s, lies in a hospital bed, falling ill after being ordered to take a heart-attack-inducing pill by a woman representing a shadowy overlord. Jack, fresh from a seizure induced by the biotoxin, arrives to find out why this bad day is about to get worse.

"It's really about broadening the conspiracy," says executive producer Howard Gordon, "by delivering on the details of the threat (Jonas) made to (President) Taylor, when he said he's just a cog in a larger machine." Hodges also explains his motives.
But the confrontation didn't come soon enough for Sutherland. "One of the great fears of mine is that in many cases in 24, characters don't meet, and Jon and I took until the very bitter end," he says. As he received script after script with no scenes between Bauer and Hodges, "I finally had to go up to Howard and said, 'If you don't let me work with him, I'll kill you.' "

Voight says he had a blast playing Hodges, first glimpsed in last summer's movie prequel before reappearing halfway through this season, after the previous baddie, Sangala's Col. Dubaku, was dispatched.

The actor, 70, says he found the experience "an adventure," and he made some significant contributions. Gordon says Voight ad-libbed several lines, including the producer's favorite: "Stress is the fertilizer of creativity."

And more important, he broke a rule of 24, which frowns on food or bathroom breaks. "He was eating when you first see him," Voight says. Specifically, Chinese noodles. "They said, 'We don't do that on this show.' " ("It might be the first time food's been eaten on 24," Gordon says.)
But Voight argued that "you want to see he's got levels of concentration, he's doing lots of things and he's comfortable. It's not like he's working hard or scared or has the weight of the world on him. He's living his life and he's not intimidated."
Hodges is also "out of his mind," Gordon says, crediting Voight with giving the role an extra layer. "He's operatic and over-the-top. It's a character that's one-dimensional on the page, but he makes it three-dimensional."

Sutherland says, "The key to a villain like this is you want to like him. Jon floats that fantastic line; his ideology is insane, but he almost sells it to you. He's charming, which is what makes him scary."
One of his favorite scenes was a few weeks back, when Jonas bashed the head of Starkwood's chairman of the board with a brandy snifter, then hurled him over a balcony to his death.

Voight was relieved, because it enabled him to show Hodges' true character. "I felt this guy was holding himself back," Voight says. "He had this venom, and it had to be unleashed." It also clearly signaled to viewers that Hodges is a man of action: "He's not just talking, he's nuts. We're keeping him in this danger zone."

Also tonight, Chloe returns (Mary Lynn Rajskub is back from maternity leave), locking horns with Janis (Janeane Garofalo), and the president's daughter Olivia (Sprague Grayden) seeks her own way to get at Hodges.

Just four hours remain in 24's day, including a two-hour finale scheduled for May 18, and Sutherland says they're among the series' best. They bring the show's controversial stance on torture — still making headlines in the real world as recently as last week — full circle from the start of the season, when Bauer faced a congressional hearing on his interrogation methods.

Jack "really goes inside himself in a very deep way, not only about things he's been asked to do but things he's done by his own choice," Sutherland says. "It's a much more emotional four episodes than dramatic, explosive, blow-up-everything episodes."
And on May 28, 24 — absent last year due to the writers' strike — will begin filming its eighth season, to be set (and partially shot) in New York with a story centering on the United Nations

It's been very up and down, I think.

The invasion of the white house really sucked ass, in my opinion, it's a millstone around the neck of this season. There's suspension of disbelief, and then there's the white house getting invaded and taken over by 10 or 20 dudes.

The angles with Starkwood, Jack, and Tony have been good. 24 always seems to have a good betrayal in store. The FBI aspect has been good.

The whole torture angle is overwrought and getting stale.

The President has been weak and very bad, I think. They haven't had a good one since Logan (once he was bad) or Palmer.

All the president does this season is sit behind her desk and answer the phone with a shocked look on her face. Everybody is ahead of her. The scene where she ran into the situation room waving her arms, "Stop the airstrike!" was the moment I really began to hate the character... Wayne Palmer was weak and ineffective, this president is more like an unattractive damsel. She's not presidential, she's not really doing anything. You could see the series getting better without the President even being in this season.

They could have done one thing to make this season really amazing and fascinating - Imagine all this stuff going on if Noah Daniels were still in office. His depiction of an unlikeable President was so much more convincing and effective, and the complexity of those interactions with Starkwood and all these situations today would be so much more interesting than what we have currently.

Hell, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Daniels is part of this cabal anyway. That would be quite a twist.

I hope that they do a good job when Tony meets his end if it comes this season. I've always liked him, he's been great on the show.

I personally think that the President's ineptitude is serving to do two things:

1.) It really makes the bad guys' plot more scary. This country, under the leadership of President Taylor, is ripe to be thrown into chaos.

2.) It attempts to make us feel for the Olivia character more (though not enough, imo).

I thought the subway stuff was great, really well done.

I also loved the absence of the president.

Hopefully they have something good left because all that is going right now is Kim, and Olivia about to be discovered if Pierce gets to her office first

I was thinking/hoping that the hitman pimp was bringing Olivia to a meeting so he could pop her. Maybe he was going to, but I guess (a) she didn't transfer the money yet and (b) he needs her to clean up her computer first.

I still hold to my conspiracy theory that Noah Daniels is behind the main plot line. That would be a sweet twist.

Not necssarily. Maybe the real life actress came back and signed on for a few episodes because she wants to get killed off and move on with her movie/TV career?

Jack dying, no way. Just drop it .

Tony may get away to be fodder for the next season. A villian and someone to battle against Jack that has the same skill set.

The Noah Daniels angle may be true but a lot of stuff happened under his watch.

I'm sure that's what we thought in season 1 when Nina killed his wife.

I was starting to think that they were going to have the first ever "To be continued..." for 24 and tie this season to the next, running them consecutive days. That way they can play out the daughter kidnapped thing to death and let Jack hack and cough his way through most of another day. After all, there's a whole group of bad dudes plotting all of this stuff yet to take down.

But when it was a trade-your-daughter-for-getting-Tony-out scenario, my theory fell kind of flat. Jack shouldn't have a problem freeing Tony. He already did it once earlier in the season.

Prediction: Kim gets killed and tells Jack about his granddaughter with her dying breath. They are able to harvest whatever they need to from Kim to save Jack since he now has a reason to go on living. I'm not sure why a granddaughter would be more important to live for than a daughter, but maybe Kim annoyed Jack as much as she annoys most people.

FROM THE WAY BACK MACHINE

HOW?

All things considered...HOW?!?!?!

It bothered me SO much...I was so into that season...(I watched it in the span of two or three days)...they ordered Jack to KILL Nina...why in God's name would you kill the KEY to your inside information?

Because Nina wasn't the key to "their" inside information.

The person who told Jack to kill Nina was Ira Gaines, the mid-level boss of the first half of the season. Gaines wasn't getting info from Nina. Gaines was working with Jamey, the girl in CTU who worked alongside Nina and Tony.

You can't lump all the bad guys together as "they", like the henchman know just as much about the operation as the masterminds. Gaines was like the Colonel Dubaku of season one. After Dubaku came General Juma. Then came Jonas Hodges. Then came the guy Tony was after. There's always a bad guy and then we find out who the next bad guy is that's above him on the totem pole.

Nina's involvement was at the very top with the Drazens. Gaines didn't know Nina was involved. Neither did Jamey. Nina was way above them.

For Gaines, killing Nina wouldn't have adversely effected his end of things. She wasn't feeding him info. She wasn't his asset. She was just someone he saw as being in the way.

i have read that they don't have the end of the season written when they first start shooting, and that they do take fan reaction into account. i think that was probably why we saw the president's role reduce as the season went on.

i thought the part with ethan and aaron pierce was very good.

i wish they would have given tony a more interesting motivation than 'i'm gonna kill the guy who killed my wife and son, and i dont care how many hundreds of people i have to kill to do it'. revenge is a fine motivation, but i think that dumbed the character down. even given what he has lost, he would still have to believe in something. i didn't buy that he would have considered all that happened today an acceptable trade.

i didn't like the last scene where jack and renee interrupt him about to kill the bad guy. they could have simply picked up the gun after they shot tony the first time, rather than standing back and letting him crawl to it. that scene wasn't very well conceived.

That is the payoff for the whole season, the reckoning. They way it was done was pretty weak.

i think I would give the season a C+/B- overall. some of it was pretty good, some of it was bad.

the cast isn't as compelling as it used to be in some vague way.

I think this season is kind of dubious as well, for the raid on the white house overshadows a lot.

the whole thing from end to end - terrorists simply being able to tunnel into there, terrorists being able to take the whole place over with ease, putting everyone on the floor in a big room like they're knocking over some small town bank. Then like a cheesy Bond villain take their sweet time carrying out their plans.

It kills me how 24 can work so well with simple MacGuffin chase plots, and then they write those 2 hours of just...dreck

That raid, and the performance by the president during it, was the low point of the entire series in my opinion. i've seen every episode since day 1, and i almost didn't watch the following week.

New cast member and rumored plot spoilers for season 8
Suddenly, I find myself counting the minutes until 24's new season. Perhaps this is why: Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica heroine has been tapped to play the series regular role of Dana Walsh, a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the new and improved New York branch of CTU.

Translation: Chloe-Starbuck catfight alert!
This fraktastic casting coup hit a road block last week when Sackhoff abruptly took herself out of the running, prompting me to post this blind item (http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/06/random-scooplet.html). But late Friday, word surfaced that the BSG badass was once again in the mix.

Here's more scoop on Sackhoff's character...
She's in a relationship with fellow agent Davis Cole (played by the just-cast (http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/05/ask-ausiello--3.html) Freddie Prinze. Jr.), and she apparently has a skeleton in her closet she's trying desperately to keep hidden.

As I previously reported, 24's eighth season -- which premieres Jan. 17, 2010 -- will be set in the Big Apple (http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/04/exclusive-24-mo.html) and center on an assassination plot against a visiting foreign leader (Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor). In addition to Sackhoff and Prinze, new Day 8 blood includes Forrest Gump'sMykelti Williamson, Kissing Jessica Stein's Jennifer Westfeldt (as a journalist with ties to Kapoor's diplomat), and The Starter Wife's Chris Diamantopoulos (as President Taylor's Chief of Staff (http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/05/24-exclusive-ha.html)).
