  • Solid main plot continues to keep afloat what otherwise is a flawed season of "24".

    As expected, Jack and Renee's main plot continues to be the most interesting aspect of the season, providing us personal conflicts with the best two characters of the show right now. However, unlike the majority of the seventh season, this season's choice of subplots has been nothing but bad. Although Hassan and Bazhaev's subplots can be endured long enough (even if it seems that the Bazhaevs thing will become totally irrevelant in a few hours), the Dana subplot is still ridiculous and overlong. Knowing in advance the plot twist of Episode 13, it can be considered "partially" necessary, but if the real intention was this all along, at least they've could rewrite the whole subplot or think of another thing. On the positive side, Annie Wersching and Kiefer Sutherland give convincing performances, as always, and Jack's cover as the German dealer with Harry Potter glasses was kind of hilarous and very unusual for a serious character like Jack Bauer and a show like "24". Several times during the scene, it seemed like Kiefer was on the verge of laughing. (P.S.: This is the first and only time in the whole show in which Jack smoked. Amazing. Kiefer couldn't resist his smoking habit not for one second while he was filming).
