    The commercial they've been airing is so cool. I can't wait.

    I don't think I've ever anticipated television as much as I have for this show.

    What a fabulous show tonight....

    This stroyline is leading me to believe this is all about Jacks former CIA dealings. Palmer is a side story, and was only used as a setup....

    Why is Gaines taking orders from a man who essentially said that he would be killing him shortly for having failed?

    Seems like the first thing Gaines should have done is kill the guy and then figure out a way to get Jack to partner with him.

    Anyway, another good episode, as always. Though had another plot hole or "suspended disbelief moment". (Last week's moment was that Terri didn't bother to describe that she and her daughter were being held in a barn with lots of hay around in a kind of rural location which she saw when she was taken outside.) This week's was that the man who never was a student was not on alert when his secretary told him an old friend from school was coming to visit him.

    But as long as they keep the story moving I don't mind.

    Yeah another excellent show. Next week looks like we get the family thing out of the way so for the next 12 episodes its all jack tracking down the baddies. I was wondering where Jack's wife's kidnapper went. then bamn there he was. What i think is that palmer was in charge of the senate committee who was behind jacks assignment and jack was the only person who survived the mission. The bad guys are trying to get revenge on jack for doing the mission and palmer being behind the mission. But with Jack now not a part of there plans they will settle for getting palmer. My 2 cents :)

    What was the "wand" that the Serbian guy had hidden in the back of the limo? Is it the equivalent of a cattle prod or something?
    Thos.
    PS I'm guessing the safety was on the gun, too. Is it just me, or did they give away the entire episode next week in the previews ? [​IMG]

    24 is one show that I absolutely never watch the previews for...it was definitely a knife, Jack said the "brand" but I don't remember it... I was thinking maybe the wife is pregnant and maybe there's a miscarriage in the offing.

    Good show. Looks like Jack was about to lose it a few times. But there are problems

    How can Gaines have such a "proffesional" set up and yet trust the punk kids to carry out important duties? He was so organized before and has no backup plan now? Where did his shooter go? How can he not know his CTU mole is dead?? She was taken to a public hospital wasn't she (He had those all buged before)?

    The writing seems a bit disjointed, but maybe the confusion adds to the suspense.

    Looks like Serbia is the link between the Senator and Jack and the Bad Guys.

    Long wait to next week and no rerun on this friday... I like rewatching to pick up things I missed the first time.

    "This week's was that the man who never was a student was not on alert when his secretary told him an old friend from school was coming to visit him. "

    Hhmm, true this is a big hole; but say this "Ted Coffell" set himself up as a businessman for a quite a while; whatever his deal is, people probably started hearing of him, and business people tend to be very swarmy and try to act like they know everybody and are close personal friends just to get their foot in the door. Coffell probably didn't pay the request any mind as he probably thought it was somebody looking for money , info, etc.

    Concerning Feb. 12th's episode :

    Man, when "Alan" sat down in the limo I was completely blown away, as I figured that character was just going to be forgotten. As he raised the gun and shot at what turned out to be bullet proof glass, the look on Jack's face turned it into one of the series' most memorable moments so far.


    I certainly hope 24 is recognized at the Emmy's in the fall, because it's by far the most entertaining show on TV right now.

    Now,will they have to change the opening since "apparenty' Jack finds his wife and daughter according to the priview. I was glad they finally brought up the plane crash since they left it hanging since around 3 or 4 in the morning. When will Dennis Hopper be showing up since I have heard alot of rumors about him.

    Does any one have opinion on which MAJOR character will be killed next?

    That look on Jacks face when Alan shot at him was so badass. It's like "Hey dipshit, get ready to wish you were dead." I talked about that today over lunch. Somebody should put a minimovie or vidcaps of that online. BADASS!
