Perjury! Affidavits! Loopholes in the 25th Amendment! For a minute there, I thought we were trapped in some sort of C-SPAN alternate universe. Thank goodness for the Tom Lennox Redemption Train - it pulled into the station right on schedule, complete with super-sneaky listening device and resultant incriminating audio recording. We even got a taste of the old Tom for dessert, as he made a truce with Karen only to lie to her seconds later. A weasel never really changes his spots, does he? Of course, all this power-of-the-presidency hubbub turned out to be an exercise in futility, after Palmer launched the same retaliatory nuclear strike that they woke him up out of the coma to prevent in the first place. My current theory is that the presidential physician is supposed to be injecting him with adrenaline, but instead he's shooting the commander in chief full of Hulk juice: "Wayne mad! Wayne smash!" Meanwhile, Jack's taking Gredenko out for a fun-filled evening at the Santa Monica Pier. Cotton candy, Ferris-wheel rides, and a quickie amputation by ax, coming right up! C'mon, people - just because a show promises to cut down on the brutal torture scenes doesn't mean we're gonna stop losing appendages here and there. I found Gredenko's betrayal of Fayed to be surprisingly chilling, as "the man from the news" fell victim to a mob beating on a barroom floor. Naturally, that's when Jack showed up to take him into custody, where he'll somehow manage to escape or take his own life rather than lead authorities to the nukes; there's some serious Bond-villain logic at play in the CTU-niverse. Why secure the threat simply and easily when a precarious and indefinite situation leads to much better drama? It goes with Jack Bauer territory, and I've long since learned not to quibble with it. But as much as I commit myself to suspending disbelief during each and every hour of this show, I have to confess a major "oh come on" moment: Fayed's shout of "I hope your friend is dead" rang so false to me that I actually had to skip back and make sure I'd heard him correctly. Granted, it gave Jack reason to deliver a pretty rockin' kick to Fayed's face, but not for one second did I believe that this steely-eyed mastermind of terror would indulge in such a goading outburst to Johnny Light Beer down at the local pub. It's a minor issue, of course, but I crave my Jack Attack so intensely that even the tiniest thing that takes me out of it tends to make me extra testy. Which brings us to Doyle. He covered for Milo's unintentional security breach, and stunned Nadia with a well-timed quote from the Koran, explaining to her that "you're lucky, you found your answers; I'm lookin' for mine." Are you telling me we're supposed to believe that he's simply a troubled spiritual wanderer? Maybe "what happened in Denver" was simply a Youth for Christ Jamboree gone horribly, horribly wrong. And a final thought - did that sweet little phone call between Bill and Karen make anybody else nervous? They may be two of the most powerful people in the government, but they're also husband and wife - and Bill's the sort of husband who's always there for his missus: "You don't have to thank me. It's my job." On this show, it's tender moments like those that often turn out to be famous last words. show less

Premise: An exciting and edgy real-time action series about U.S. counterterrorist agent Jack Bauer trying to save his country from foreign and domestic enemies in the course of 24 grueling hours (with each hour a separate episode). The series took a great concept and executed it superbly, juggling taut storylines with forceful performances and a stylish, gritty look. Which made it easier to forgive some of the more foolish and implausible subplots, many involving Jack's crisis-magnet daughter, Kim.
