Look, itâ€™s not just me that thinks â€œ24â€ sucks tons. Even the writers know.
1:00: Weâ€™ve got, what, 4-5 hours of Jack Bauer and Doyle chasing after the Chinese? Remember several, several weeks ago when I mentioned that the nukes werenâ€™t going to be the penultimate climax. It took a little longer than I figured, but I was proven correct.
-Can we discuss the reality that exists in â€œ24â€ where the threat of China securing a Russian defensive component seems to create the same amount of tension as the idea of terrorists running around with FIVE nuclear bombs
1:06: Noah values Karen and appreciates her sacrifice. And the writers are making him seem like a good guy now.
-Oh, Jesus Christ, the VPâ€™s Anne Coulterish aide is a sex freak? Her boyfriend didnâ€™t seem like a foreign agent, but is he a domestic baddie?
-I think I mentioned this a couple weeks ago, but did the Russians not care about the component for the last 16 hours? All of a sudden, theyâ€™re very serious about retrieving it.
-The VP has a point about the Russian general sneaking the bomb into the US and trying to detonate them. The Chinese wouldnâ€™t have gotten the component if that hadnâ€™t happened.
-You have to think the VP does not enjoy getting hung up on by the Russian President.
-Selective Satellite. Thatâ€™s what I call it when in the course of a few hours C.T.U. is able to track random vehicles driving away from malls, but then lack the ability to track Hummers driving away from a location that desperately needed surveillance.
-The Chinese just downloaded the schematics to a computer IN the USâ€¦ This type of plot hole gives me migraines. Wouldnâ€™t it have been just as easy to download the schematics of the chip to a computer in China?
-â€œWithout it, this technology is useless to us!â€ This is dumb. The chip is damaged and thus not usable.
1:17: I forget her name, but whereâ€™d she get the robe?
-Oh, I guess her boyfriend is a bad guy.
-Dr. Bradley, eh, I wonder what his story is.
1:23: Arms, feet, and groin? What kind of injections are injected into her groin?
-Jack Bauer went though the same treatment? Maybe thatâ€™s why heâ€™s so disgruntled, because he got injections into his groins.
1:30: This VP is a weak, weak, weak man. Really. He could have any blonde he wanted.
-Tom Lennox should work for C.T.U. He figured out the leak in about 10 minutes. Thatâ€™s yeoman work!
-Noah, youâ€™ve got to do the right thing. Please.
-â€œThen weâ€™ve got a bigger problem than you think, Tom.â€ â€œWhyâ€™s that, sir?â€ â€œBecause Iâ€™m sleeping with her, too.â€ Iâ€™m laughing uncontrollably right now. I donâ€™t ever laugh out loud like this. That was amazing and excellent and wonderful. I think that scene redeemed between 3 and 7 episodes of â€œ24â€ shitiness. That made it all worth it.
1:34: JBKC: 28 and 29 (Doyle and the other guard).
1:35 JBKC: 30 and 31 (Dr. Bradley)
-Remember that JBKCs are Jack Bauer Knockdown Counts. I determined very early in the first hour of the last season that I wouldnâ€™t be able to count easily whether Jack Bauer had killed someone, wounded them, or merely knocked them out. Therefore, anyone that Jack Bauer knocks down, I count.
-Damn, Nadia, youâ€™re just going to let Milo talk to you like that?
1:41: Tom Lennox and Noah
-Hasnâ€™t Jack Bauer hidden in C.T.U. before?
-You guys didnâ€™t know this, but Jack Bauer majored in Psychology as an undergrad. He also played midget football.
-â€œI love you with all my heart.â€ That was a little melodramatic, wasnâ€™t it?
-Doyle forced Nadia to grow some balls, and everyone wins!
1:52: Tom Lennox and Noah are clever like foxes. Lisa Miller is clearly no match.
-I think this is a tactical error. Noah and Tom Lennox should have gotten Mark Bishop bad information through Lisa Miller.
-Lisa just learned that Hell hath no fury like a man scorned.
-One possibility is that Lisa tries to tell Mark a lie and he recognizes it as such and everything backfires.
1:56: Secretary Heller is still a douche bag.
