I wish I had a girlfriend.
And a drink.
Hope Chase wasn't a lefty.
I bitch a lot to my friends about the show being over-the-top with a frickin' dramatic twist every ten freaking minutes, and my girlfriend and I created a drinking game for the show: take a drink every time anyone mentions time, either how long something is going to take, or how long ago something happened, or when someone will arrive, etc. (because it's always basically a way of either reminding you when something happened earlier in the season, or foreshadowing when something is going to occur, to keep you always waiting for the next event). And they're pretty freely screwing around with the whole "real time" schtick, espescially at the end there... I figure they must have tossed Chase out the window and run him into the convienently located fully-staffed emergency room across the frickin' street. No wonder he gets to keep his hand... it was detached for all of 10 minutes!
But I'm still gonna watch it next season (early 2005). It's like a sick addiction, I just can't help it.
The refrigerator was pretty slick. I didn't see that coming at all, and was wondering right to the last second what the hell he was going to do with the device.

Yeah, the last part of this season really picked up a bit. I gave up bitching about time issues..I just have fun with it. The best was a few episodes ago when they blew up the helicopter. At 10:59:59 the hellicopter was a blazing inferno and Jack had the bad guy at gunpoint...the next episode, at 11:00:01 the bad guy is in custody and the fire department already has the fire 1/2 way out.
I get a good chuckle everytime Jack yells "We're running out of time!" Fun stuff.
I was thinking Jack was gonna shoot up again at the end of the day - kinf of disapointed they didn't address that. Still a fun show tho. I'll be back next year.
this show friggin kicks ass! It deserves so many porps on so many different levels,not just its interesting premise,but it has several other factors that make it a kick ass show.I mean,not only do they have a black president,they have more black characters than most or all of primetime shows.They have had more black characters in their first few seasons than some primetime shows have had black background characters,right,'Friends'?
Jack Bower (sp?) is the frickin man.Like I said Kieffer Sutherland can do no wrong.
I wish I had a black president. . . .
Ok I'll stop.
When do they potty? Jack should have made a loaf in the last few seconds of the show.
Dammit, Dash, now I have to clean spit off the monitor.
Yah, I thought for sure that when Jack (Bauer) finally started to crack a little in the last five minutes, that they'd pan over to a vial or something on the floor of the car, left from like 16 episodes ago or something.
Kiefer Sutherland did pretty well this season selling the character... he's a hard mother****er, that's for sure. I mean, I cringed with that axe, I kept thinking that they bomb-squad guy was gonna call at the last second. They kept it twisting until that last second, though, so I'm willing to get over the rest of the overhyped drama and the ridiculous number of plot twists that occur with a frequency that makes daytime soaps look like the 4AM on HSN.
I'm glad they showed that they strain is there with Jack... he's just so hardcore that he keeps it together when lesser men would have long since fallen to pieces and gotten everyone killed.
Palmer's decision to quit was also pretty suprising, but it made sense... being president has beaten him up pretty bad, what with his psycho wife (yay! It was the season of "wrap up the wife threads" with Nina and Sherry both biting the bullet... haha) and the stress of the decisions he was forced to make. But he's not out, I'm sure... he'll be back in the next season.
I wonder how much time they'll burn between now and the next "day". And if they'll make Tony someone's bitch all that time, or if it'll be about finding a last-minute way out of prison. Or maybe Michelle will go rogue and try to break him out... will Chase and Kim get married? How many times will Kim get kidnapped? Bet she's preggers... or finds out that she's preggers in a shocking dramatic twist!!.
Yeah, it's bad... but I gotta stay hooked. Sad...
I think this shows sucks. But I still find myself watching it about every week.
It makes me wonder if they have subliminal messeges flashing when the digital clock ticks before the go to commecial.
I used to watch it to check out kim, then I realised it was a bunch of people on phones yelling at each other for an hour
24 is so bad. not that much exciting stuff happens in an hour. i mean, i wasted an hour last night watching american idol! then i watched law and order svu. then i ate a sammich. then i slept. then i woke up. then i got dressed and went to school. all in one episode.
