    It had great sound editing and stunt coordination.

    hmm yet again Jack managed to do everything on his own - taking down the mission almost singlehandedly. Heller and his daughter are rescued - no surprises there. Yet another mole revealed - no surprises there too. Some kind of emotional drama might start now that Andrey's husband's here. Behrooz scenes seem to gather good momentum and it might turn interesting from now.

    Actually, I won't go quite that far in scoring this episode (heh, "scoring"). The first ten minutes ARE good, but the rest of the episode isn't up to snuff.First up, there are the post-rescue plots where:1) Heller finds out about Jack and Audrey's relationship, and2) Audrey's separated husband Paul Raines is introduced.I don't feel hot about the Heller thing, and Paul's goofy English accent makes me laugh.Second up, there's the twist regarding Marianne. The character was made out to be a b*tch from her introduction, so did the writers think they would get a good shock out of this? Whether they did or didn't, the scene's execution is horrible. Walk out of plain view, dial phone, and say "they found out about the Override" with shock music. Extremely cheesy.And about the Override (third up), we find out what was in that briefcase: a device that the terrorists can use to cause a mass nuclear meltdown across the country. Gah! Not a meltdown! This is horrible! What can we do?! What can we— …hey, it says "MF" on the briefcase. Heehee!Fourth up, the Araz subplot is still going strong. Navi hires henchman Tariq to help Behrooz dump Debbie's corpse…only Tariq has the added assignment of dumping Behrooz's corpse as well. Unfortunately for Navi, this doesn't go according to plan, and the dynamic of the Araz Family storyline undergoes a pretty drastic change.Fifth up, we get to hear the name of the next Bigbad to come along: Marwan. Sounds intimidating enough.Hourly Highlight:Behrooz shovel-whacking the **** out of Tariq.moreless

    Jack Bauer finds the secret hide out of the terrorist and moves in on his own. Jack needs to do the rescue fast enough as an incoming airstrike is underway. Andrew is again interrogated inside CTU. Curtis finds evidence that there is a much bigger terrorist attack. The Araz family are torn apart by their involvement with the terrorists as their own personal grievances come between them. Things are shown in this episode, it's a very fast paced episode. The action is just amazing, we see stuff happening here. It's a really entertaining episode. It's really well directed, it's awesome.moreless

    The first portions of the episode remind me how great this show can be with the proper writing and a good actor such as Keifer playing the role of Jack Bauer. Jack going in there to rescue Heller was a great scene. Even though the odds were far against him, the way the writers made it all go down made it seem so real. Little things like Heller asking Jack for another clip, instead of just aimlessly firing until help got there. Its little things like that that make the show something special. I thought the scenes between Jack and Audrey were both very well done. I dont think they could have picked a better woman for him, the two have a great on screen connection. Paul being in Los Angeles is just going to add drama. Im sure at some point this year he will play a bigger role, maybe getting closer to Audrey while Jack is out in the field. Mari-Ann being a mole could be seen from a million miles away, but it was still cool to see it happen now as opposed to later. I like knowing that she is a mole, so we can see how her actions change now that she knows that CTU knows about the real plan at hand. The middle part of the episode dragged a little big, but it was still the best episode of the season so far.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The knife Jack gives to Audrey is the same automatic knife taken from Ted Cofell in Season 1, a Microtech Halo.

    • When Jack storms the base, he shoots the cameraman filming Heller's trial. When we see the man get shot and drop the camera, he has quite "big" hair. However, when Omar flees, and Jack shoots the cameraman again (this time he is on the floor), it is clearly a different actor, as his hair is so much shorter.
