24: 10 p.m. -11 p.m.
I didn’t see that coming.
Second good episode of 24 in a row that had some things that bugged me, but the closing scenes were cool enough.
-Audrey got reinstated pretty quickly. Five minutes after being tortured, she’s picking up and using strange earpieces.
-The visual of Jack walking through the smoke was pretty cool.
-Last week, Jack was upset. Now he’s “scared.” This season is definitely taking us to new places.
-When does Vice President Leland Palmer’s hair turn gray?
-Thank you for answering how Wayne got the gun.
-Evelyn actually matters to the plot. I didn’t see that one coming.
-Jean Smart can sure rock a turtleneck! No First Lady of Cleavage jokes this week (or, did I already use that last week?).
-The bad guys kidnapped Evelyn’s daughter. Was I asleep during a previous hour?
-Karen addressing the CTU staff from the second floor looked to me like Mussolini’s address from the balcony.
-Can Miles stand up straight? Every time he talks to someone, he’s hunched over. He’s like the Homeland Security Hunchback.
-I think Kim Raver (Audrey) is forgetting that her character was tortured less than an hour ago.
-Chlöe is not going to like being a political pawn.
-So they’re firing all the CTU employees. Does that mean Sexual Harassment Sherry is on her way out after just one episode? Good.
-How does Wayne handle everyone saying what a great guy his brother is? I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone (except for David) say anything good about Wayne. The guy must have a huge inferiority complex. Although, for a member of the Palmer family, I’d rather have him around than any of the kids.
-I’ve liked the music so far this season. Except for this episode. Too soap-opera-ey.
-The showdown at the whatever that place was supposed to be was pretty cool. Although, you think being a great strategist, Jack would have had Evelyn stash the evidence somewhere else.
-Damn good reveal at the end. I’m not sure I’m happy with it. I’m trying to figure out how he could have pulled it off. And I don’t know if I buy Charles Logan as Verbal Kint. But it beats going with the bad guy being VP Leland Palmer, which would have been a bit obvious. Now instead of being evil, he’s just crazy. And instead of being just a clueless putz, Logan is an evil putz. Nice tradeoff.
