A 24 Community
FOX (ended 2010)

If you need a quick way to catch up on last week, I would suggest the 1st 24 GIF Party (Hours 1 & 2) that was an epic throw down. It took me the rest of the week to clean up, you slobs! And whoever left the Llama, please come pick it up. It's pooping all over my carpet.



*As requested (See @Vicky8675309 I listen!), I created more of a recap to go with the animated images. Also, remember to give the Post a big ole' HEART if you enjoy these GIF Parties. It is a nice pat on the back for the author and it lets the staff know you are interested in more posts about the show and/or from the author.

**And please give the Post about a minute to load. I have a newer laptop and it takes about 40 seconds. Trust me - it took infinitely longer to make! GIFs can be a real memory hog.



What's that I hear?

Blip...Beep...Blip...Beep...BlipBeepBlipBeepBlipBeepBlipBeepBlipBeepBlipBeep

Considering this is all in Real Time, makes sense we pick up exactly where last week left off with Jack pursuing Simone with Chloe's help.



Jack finds Yates and his skewered melon dead in the bathroom with no Drone tech. Chloe spots Simone leaving the bar and heading towards the tubes. Jack pursues.



Meanwhile, Kate and Erik are still at the apartment complex interrogating the participants of the shoot out but getting nowhere. They are ordered to cease and desist by Navarro, but Kate has other plans for Basher.



Erik begins to get on the same page with Kate and they basically threaten Basher with offering him up to a rival drug gang unless he gives up who they were protecting. He not only gives up Yates but also throws out Tanner's name as the target of his project. The wheels in Kate's head are turning as what she finds out begins to mesh with what Jack told her.



Simone jumps on the subway, but Jack manages to jump on with her with Chloe's guidance. She spots Mr. Bauer and she pulls out old faithful.



She uses the blood to smear on her face and shout out that she's being assaulted. Jack handles that little inconvenience just fine.



Simone does lose jack in the tubes, slipping out a maintenance tunnel.



But Jack knows he has Chloe covering all exits. Unfortunately, we get an event that leads to some backstory on the tragedy that has befallen Ms. O'Brien.



The young couple walking out of the station reminded Chloe of Morris and Prescott. Both were killed in a car wreck on the way home from Prescott's soccer practice; a ride Chloe normally provided. She is certain she was being targeted for murder due to her knowledge of the events around Jack's disappearance. As a result of the overwhelming memory, she loses focus and Simone slips away.



Audrey gives Mark hell for being too rough on her father, the President. Mark is increasingly convinced he is falling too deeply into dementia, should head back to America, and forget the address to Parliament. Especially in light of the Drone attack.



When Audrey slips out, he signs the President's name to the document that will disappear Jack Bauer forever.



Simone arrives home to her mother Margot the terrorist. Margot was radicalized into Al Qaeda after her husband was killed in a drone attack that President Heller authorized. Simone looks happily at the targeting that nears completion.
10 Downing Street, huh? That can't be good.



Simone's husband, Donny walks in. He seems practically disgusted by Simone's affections. He obviously isn't very happy about the tryst that Simone engaged in to further their cause. Psyco mom is all in on the carnage they are about to propagate and it appears that Simone has consumed the Kool-Aid as well. Donny, however, is not all that thrilled about killing innocents in the name of justice. An interesting flip-flop is being pulled off here as we see the pasty English folks are the bloodthirsty terrorists while the man of Middle Eastern decent is not happy about bloodshed. Nice work, show!



Adrian Cross thought he was done with Jack since Yates is dead. But Jack asks for his help as there is no way he can get into the Embassy to talk to Tanner without the whole team setting up the credentials to get him in. At first it appears Cross is going to help. But as alluded to in the name, he double-crosses Jack by entering in the wrong security clearance codes when Chloe isn't looking.



And if the gentle hair stroking isn't creepy enough on Adrian's end, how about dear old mum peeking in on the two crazy kids as poor Donny finally succumbs to Simone's advances.





The famous split screens begin, starting the wrap up of Hour 3 of Live Another Day.



President Heller insists on proceeding with the speech to Parliament and is greeted by repeated shout-downs. Margot is deep in thought, obviously hearing of Donny's reservations regarding the attacks. Simone's brother continues to set up the Drone control device.



Adrian's team awaits the $h!# storm they just set up. Kate and Erik are on their way to the Embassy to talk to Tanner. Jack is en route as well.



Jack works his way to the gates of the Embassy. Right off he can sense something is going wrong with his security pass. Chloe figures out what is happening and screams to him to get the f@#k out of dodge. Jack insists he has to get in.



The whole jacket over the head trick. We didn't see the noogies he also gave him.

And with the help of a few John Reese kneecappers...



...he has the distraction he needs to slip in through the gates with Kate and Erik on his tail.





See you at next week's bash! Someone bring the Nachos! And please leave the Zoo animals at home.

Great party this week! I really hope someone comes to get that Llama soon. Looks like Adrian Cross took a "fork or a knife" to Jack's back but I got a feeling Jack will "spoon" him right back. (Yep it's a Robing Hood reference). Can't wait to party next week! ;)

Great episode I like the way Jack deals with the London Police force jacket over the head trick, can't see how Jack is going to get past all the security now he in the embassy. Jack rogue CTU operation is buggered now Adrian Cross has given him up and Physco mum really needs to watch the following instead of her daughter humping . Await more action in the next epsisode where jack deals with unscrupulous market traders and traffic wardens.

If she watched The Following she'd think all law enforcement is incompetent and just procede with her plan

Awesome! Really nice and smooth gifs!
24: good ol' 24 - insanely over the top and following close its formula. But although there are still some things that turn me off, Jack comes along, faces a problem and then does what he does best: shooting people and causing mayhem! Love it. I really had to lol when Jack started the panic in front of the embassy...

If you want to see the transition frames I do, go to the latest Farscape review I did and look how the images are faded in to each other.

Ohh, lmao: "Do you know what the police will do if they find CIA agents in the middle of this?"
- Yeah, arrest the writers of this drivel and make something watchable instead.

Even the tech dialog is incorrect, almost everything about the show is bull. :-(

(Like the hand-held launcher punching holes in concrete, in a previous episode)

"New drones carry 6 Hellfire missiles" - says Jack later on in the show; but, the Reaper specs list: "Up to 4 AGM-114 Hellfire air to ground missiles can be carried or four Hellfire missiles and two 500 lb (230 kg) GBU-12 Paveway II laser-guided bombs."

So even if they could, somehow, take over a drone - why assume it will carry a maximum payload.. What mission is it doing, over homeland soil, in range of their targets and with such armament.. Why elect for Jack (and a lot of other characters) to constantly talk trash on this show.. So lame. :-f

I do appreciate your insight. But this is a work of fiction. Never thought of this show as very realistic. Doesn't mean it is not really entertaining. If you wouldn't have bothered to look the specs up,. you could have just went along with the plot. I realize some minds don't work like that though. YOu need more realism. This probably aint it.

super easy to apply suspension of disbelief--I mean Jack doesn't even need to go to the bathroom;-)
I'm loving the show!

Jack is the one who needs a ton of fiber. And his is anal retentive.

@edshrinker

K. I'm sure you are accurate. Now move along to something more suited to your tastes. Many of us love the show.

So why do you take the time to watch and even more time to read reviews. And even more time to comment? Not that I don't appreciate it - because I do.

Wanted to answer your replies chronologically, but maybe this won will do.

In a nutshell, basically, I love Kiefer (& Donald) Sutherland && want to love this show, but I can't; they try their hardest to make it impossible:
the production (value, even in actual money) is top-notch (like, rly), but the digital effects (for example, the drone firing) aren't; for every positive there's a (big?) negative.

It makes me mad, lol, because after so many years (seasons spent) with the show.. There are (still) things that bring it down (so much) in my eyes; it also bothers me (a little :)) that other people are so willing (?) to *overlook* such things. Why can't it be "better", meh. :-/

Thanks! Regrettably you didn't need that many gifs to sums up the essence of the episode, I was not as impressed as the toher two.

I know. There was little action. I had to really work for this one. Too many character moments. that said - I disagree about the quality. The character moment's added a TOM to me as to the motivations of everyone involved and just how psycho Mom and Kate and Jack and Chloe and Adrian Cross are. These are some "out of their minds" characters. It actually appears Jack might be the most stable of them all . That is a 24 FIRST!

I agree with you on this Eddy and also loved the show. I don't need non-stop action. It's a fun show and I am fully enjoying it!

Jack has a huge bucket of crazy to deal with. Including Kate.

I wonder if she will wind up the anti-hero's love interest like on Dexter

Well... to many of us YES. But his methods would appall some, so I think he squarely falls into the anti hero category. I mean, think about Dexter. He was really a hero - he killed bad bad people. But he did it in the vein of being a serial killer so what he was was appalling to many folks. Same thing in my feeble mind.

Jack's a hero. Who is the anti-hero?

I understand what you're saying,. After I watched this episode my gut said to me that we were doing exactly the same is what made me less of a fan in the last series. If the FBI thinks he is here to assassin president Heller, he will absolutely go to Heller. That kind of things that will make sure he gets in all kind of trouble. I understand it for the action, but it reminds me too much of what i did not like those last series. the two first episodes did not do that.

&& the way the camera is.. you'd think they would try and evolve the shaky-cam, but not only is it headache-inducing - also, often times, Jack or someone else is trying to "squeeze in" too much of a dialog into the ([also] fast-cut) scene & there's no dynamic too it, feels forced. No examples given here, because we're made to suffer through it for too many years now.. if you don't know by now - then forget it. xD

*sometimes fast-cut, or NOT, the Parkinson's cam is - perhaps - worse than the fast-cuts.

Tom dies or should have died, but now I've mentioned it in the comment of that post I immediately got people reacting why he could be alive :-).

And hey shrinker, you're the one that knows what this slip of the tongue really means: you're a Tom lover!
