Shall we assume that Agent Pearce ultimately whisked Martha Logan away to the Mount Airy Lodge for some good lovin'? Glenn Morshower, who played 24 fans' favoritest Secret Serviceman, is joining Friday Night Lights this season as Landry's father, a state champion Panthers alum turned local lawman.Also according to the Reporter, One Tree Hill alum Daniella Alonso is coming on board as the in-home nurse who will help Zach care for his Alzheimer's-afflicted grandmother. And yet I have to think that's not all she'll help da boy with.Related: Friday Night Lights' Langton Finds New Life.
For months, the thing about Heroes that bothered me most was Milo Ventimiglias hair: specifically, that dreaded dangling forelock Peter Petrelli kept playing with, as if in thrall to a fetish. Ive long wanted the boy to get a haircut. But not like this!Quite the horrifying climax to the March cliff-hanger (no new episodes until April 23), as Sylar pinned that dupe Mohinder to the ceiling while slicing into Peter Petrellis skull to see why Peter ticks like Sylar, only less murderously. Blood drops from Peters forehead onto the floor, followed by that hank of hair. I cringed, then I cheered. Well done.The episode was a crackerjack thrill ride with one reversal after another.

Question: I can't even tell you how much I'm enjoying 24 this season. It's the first season I've watched completely (mostly because Fox finally switched it to a time slot that doesn't conflict with anything else I watch), and what makes it even better is that I'm guaranteed a new episode each and every week. Has this scheduling had any effect on 24's ratings? I'd also like to say how much I love Jean Smart as First Lady Martha Logan — there's a contingent out here who think the last five minutes of the season should show her running off with loyal Secret Service Agent Aaron Pierce while President Logan whines to Novick, "Mike, what should I dooooooo?"
Answer: Oh, Lisa, you have no idea what a little hornets' nest you have stirred up. Just wait until you see tonight's (March 6) two-hour episode. There's a moment between ambush survivors Martha and Aaron that will tickle you to no end. (And let me just say that no 24 fan can afford to miss these episodes. It's a real and shocking turning
24Ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for Agent Pierce! After five dedicated seasons of taciturn yet loyal duty, our favorite balding redhead of a Secret Service agent finally gets to shine. So what does it take to steal the hearts of viewers in 44 minutes or less? Step 1: Disobey that namby-pamby president you've vowed to protect, even from himself. Step 2: Help Jack Bauer pull a fast one on your fellow agents and then watch with stern approval as he apprehends and interrogates a big fat mole, knife-to-eyeball style. Step 3: Fall under the first lady's spell — the rest of us have. Step 4: Offer up your badge and weapon in a gesture of ultimate humility, thereby securing yourself a place in my Awesomest Recurring Minor Characters Hall of Fame. I salute you, Glenn Morshower
