  • Slow down

    Well it has to happen at some point, does not it. After full action packed first 6 episodes one can not help but feel little bored with the sub plots in this episode which are not only slower but also do not take any where near the main plot further except that they got a lead on the man who helped the terrorist and he got killed. Almost everyone who had been following 24 series from beginning would have as much guessed - president begging Jack to join CTU on provisional basis ( as though there is no one else - i felt it would have been better if Jack requested President that he worked till the crisis is resolved) , we are not yet sure where McGill plot is taking - somehow not caught by surprise. The girl killing the man aiding the terrorist was hardly a surprise as was the suicide of Walt.

    The episode is okay but stands no where near in comparison with the earlier episodes. They made to look the scenes appear shocking while in actual they were not. Hopefully next episode picks up.

  • FAmiliar territory, repetitive and predictable!!!

    If this is the first season that you are wacthing 24, then this episode can be enjoyble, but if you are like me, that Watched all the episodes until now, you will feel like you were in boredom Kindgom.

    The only problem with this episode, is the familiar territory, like the hurt girl who gets gun (how?) and shots the important lead, or Walt Cummings apparent suicide.

    The writers continue to give martha a share of participation that can be boring, because her story is not important, just to fill the episodes. Even the terrorists actions or inactions in this episode allow to fill the episode.

    This was the worse episode so far for this season.

    Overral, too familiar and predictable.moreless
  • Great episode.

    this is another great episode. jack goes after someone who can lead him to the russians. President Logan gets another crisis in front of him as he confronts Martha over Walt's involvement with the terrorists. meanwhile, back at CTU Lynn deals with a personal crisis that gets himself in trouble. It's another fast paced action episode, things get complicated again when the terrorists gets a few steps ahead of the FBI. Jack Bauer gets reinstated by Logan so that he can deal with the problem at hand. Lynn however gets in the way of Jack Bauer. This is another fun episode.moreless
  • Quite predictable..

    I think the main problem with this episode was that it was so predictable.. everything could be expected and there were so many deja-vu moments, things they have already done in this serie.. like the hurt girl who gets gun and shots the important lead.. Mm.. I think we have seen it more than once..

    And Cummings.. from the moment Mike asked president to come it was so sure he killed himself. And then they wanted it all to look so surprising - it did not.

    And the whole thing going on with McGill.. oh.. this seems to be storyline they will use later.. promising. But that was so expected too..moreless
  • The Formula returns

    Well, somebody sure flubbed up. After an awesome—and I mean, AWESOME—first six episodes, the second quarter of S5 starts quite roughly.

    With the newly modified Sentox threat, Jack must do the only thing he can. Say it with me: he follows up a lead. Oh yes, it's been a "24" staple since the very first season, and it'll probably continue to be so. Therefore, I guess I'll have to live with it for as long as I keep watching the show, but that in no way means that I have to enjoy it, so there!

    Moving on, the actual lead is some weirdo pedophile living in a penthouse. Aside from the underage Russian sex slave living with him, there's nothing about this storyline that we haven't seen before. And including the sex slave, there's nothing interesting.

    The same can be said for the action at CTU, or lack thereof. McGill getting robbed, while having turned out to be somehow relevant to the main plot, is still pretty bland at this point.

    A big misstep, the worst that S5 has to offer, though I guess that every great show is entitled to a couple of crappy episodes per season. And hey, no Kim!

    Hourly Highlight:

    The only thing that is interesting would be the hijinks at Logan's. But only because of the opportunity to see Cummings' hanging corpse.moreless
