Similar to last year’s discovery of an apartment in the Providence Place Mall, but much more nefarious, someone is growing dope in the Mall Of The Americas. Pretty soon, we’ll be saying to each other, “Remember when malls were just for shopping?” I don’t really have any crazy mall adventures, do you?
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.
