    I wish i can like this episode better. I felt this as an episode for buying more time. Killing Debbie (felt bad though the character was new) seemed to me a bit unnecessary. Chloe getting fired and arrested? Jack staging a robbery was good. Looks like they gave everyone to do something for an hour and fill the episode.

    What makes this episode be different from other average episodes?



    The crazy situations in which jack does get involved. Like this robbery for example. The writers managed to control well the situation and to gain a few good minutes.



    Navi drama reached a limit point and escalate to another level. The situation was preditable, but at least the real drama will begin.



    It seems that we will have a new drama thanks to driscoll, i think the writers have a perfect substituive for driscoll in the future.



    Thanks God chloe´s situation reached a limite since it is not the first time that jack takes action against CTU orders.moreless

    Kinda second-rate. To start, it gets tiring to hear Jack say, "Do so-and-so or I will kill you!" over and over again. There's also Audrey and Heller's escape attempt, which you might have found cool, but which I thought was a dumb, cheap attempt to give those two some activity for the hour. And lest I forget (though I'm still trying)…Maya Driscoll. *shudder*

    It's high sailing at the Araz residence as Dina tries to get Behrooz to kill Debbie. That's about the only pro I can recall. The stuff going on at CTU isn't all that interesting. Marianne establishes herself as a very mean lady as she blackmails Edgar, but that isn't much to talk about, probably since we barely know or care about the new characters at this point.

    Chloe eventually gets the satellite feed that Jack asked for, and Jack takes Kalil as a "hostage" to get away from the cops. Too bad that once he lets Kalil go on the road, Jack almost immediately gets pulled over. And Driscoll finds out about Chloe stealing the satellite bandwidth and has her arrested. Not that interesting.

    But despite the cons, this is a decent episode overall, and there are a few real good ones to come later. Eyes peeled.



    Hourly Highlight:

    Debbie's death.moreless
  • Jack in robbery...

    Oh.. that was nerve wracking. The whole try to get satellite up thing what only gets worse as Jack's little robbery turns to get more and more out of his hand but he manages it and with the suspect, he gets out and the man is followed by satellite and 1 hour away from Heller.. Heller on the same time takes his own little escape what does not go well but he tried.



    Behrooz storyline takes quite expected turn but not in the way I expected it - mother was all behind it and she does it for him. Oh..



    And the end.. how to get out of that mess.moreless

    Another episode that barely was able to provide enough entertainment to even consider it an "Above Average" episodes. Jack holding up the store was fun for a little bit, but then it just got a little too boring and repeatitive. Chloe asking Edgar for help was interesting, but not enough to save the episode. Behrooz and The Araz family drama is also getting a little outdated. We all knew that anything will be done to protect what they are doing, so the mother trying to kill Debbie wasnt that big of a shocker. The scenes between Heller and Audrey were actually the best of the episode, a rare instance where Jack Bauer is displaced as the best of the episode. Overall, the last two episodes have really struggled to maintain my interest. Hopefully it will begin to pick up as Jack moves in for the rescue soon.moreless
