    They hurt Kim!!! Those bastards!!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Episode was good all around, it's unusual for a season to start on such a low note, though what other way was there besides some kind of against-formula montage?
    the bit with Kim & her surrogate fam kind of annoyed me. Have we stumbled into the Lifetime network or something?[​IMG] Heeellllll no, just wait till Kim winds up backing over that punk-ass loser and his losermobile!
    Do we throw predictions in this thread? It's pretty clear Kim'll be long gone from the house by the time the car from CTU arrives.
    Greg,
    Not so sure about the fiance-terrorist switcheroo you suspect, they pulled something like that during the Pilot with the photographer/what's-her-name switch and I wouldn't bet (my) money they'd do it again... it's just too obvious. Still, who can tell with these guys.

    Actually, I got the vibe that the Michelle Forbes character might be a mole in the president's inner circle, Eric is too ambitious and hawkish.

    I wouldn't mind the bride-to-be to be the one calling the shots. It would really throw the sneaky sister for a loop.

    Kim really grew up in one year. How many blonde women did we have in this episode? Just wait until Tony shows up to get Kim and that butthead is there all piss and vinegar. What an unlikeable, sleazy character that dad is that Kim is nannying for.

    Paulie makes me suspect her of something, don't know what, just my radar went up when she's in the room.

    Why didn't the prez bump his son into the lake, can't stand the son.

    I don't get the feeling that Jack killed the witness, but incapacitated him so he couldn't testify (buys him time to infiltrate Wald's world).

    How long did it take Jack to go back into CTU mode? 2 minutes? I guess it's like riding a bike, you never forget.

    Ugg- I had the opportunity to watch Season 1 for the first time on DVD. I can't even IMAGINE finding out how this thing ends until NEXT MAY. That blows my mind. How did you guys do it last year? I am seriously considering not watching and waiting for the DVD set.
    Ahhhhh, who the hell am I kiddin'? [​IMG]

    You just get into the rhythm of the weekly hour installments.

    slightly off topic...

    are there going to be individual threads for each episode or this ongoing thread only?

    One big thread for such a serialized show.

    After catching the first season on DVD, I'm hooked with this first episode here. First time in a very long time I actually planned to watch something on TV and ended up doing so [​IMG], 23 more to go!.
    I agree with Pat about Forbes' character, something seems to be up there. I actually had my eye on the clock for when Jack would get back to CTU, it wasn't too bad actually (certainly longer than a couple of minutes).

    So if Jack wants out of CTU, why does he still live so close to CTU? [​IMG]

    Not to mention that that is the same gun he used last year and it shoots bullets, not tranqs. And, he shot the guy dead in his chest with blood spurting out. Lastly, Bauer incapacitated Mason in the first episode of last season. There's no way it would happen twice in back to back premieres. He killed that guy.

    I watched the DVD set of S1 in about a week and have been anticipating this premiere ever since.
    Jack is Back!!
    The only thing that bugged me is the "hacksaw" and then the shaving scene being so close together. other than that is pure 24 as far as im concerned. [​IMG]

    Yeah, Jack shot the guy dead. He seemed pretty smug about getting off by testifying. Oh well....

    Jack might live really close to CTU, but the president fishes *really* close to that command center.

    You knew something was wrong with the father, the way he was eyeing Kim and with the wife arranging his bacon (kinda sounds dirty, doesn't it). Didn't think he'd turn quite that quickly though.

    Good start!

    Great, great season op. My gf and I haven't had time to watch the whole first season so we just caught up on the spoilers and plot and will finish it off later [​IMG]. Well worth it, this is great television.
    It did start off slow, and I agree that there may be one too many blondes to keep track of at the moment, but it's picking up. I mean, you have to have a little backstory before things really get rolling.
    Besides, it was all worth it to see Jack cap that witness. It was interesting how they listed off all the heinous crap the guy was getting off with just so you wouldn't feel as bad when Jack plugged him.
    That whole scene was the coolest thing I'd seen on TV since the thumb-taking from Season One.

    Coupla things...

    Jack was packed to move out of his house..that's why stuff looked a mess.

    Is it just me or did the daughter seem to....ummm.."blossom" since last season?

    Loved the episode! Only question is:

    If you worked at CTU, wouldn't you be crying foul that Jack gets to have his daughter moved to safety, but you can't even warn your family.

    And to devote an important resource to moving her to safety is a bit of a stretch.

    Wow, what an excellent opener. I watched last season sporadically (no, Fox, you don't have to watch every episode to keep up), but this season I'm probably gonna have to watch every episode. This season premiere had me hooked from the first frame until the last.
    I agree that the blondes were kind of hard to keep apart... but man they're gorgeous. [​IMG]
    I could not believe it when Jack shot the pedophile, but it still made sense in the context of the show. As Jack figures, if he didn't pop that creep, they'll all die anyway. Not that Jack seems to care about his own life anymore, but at least he still cares enough to try and save others.
