I think the last two episodes have potentially salvaged the season. Ludicrous as ever, but entertaining. I don't even mind the nonsensical twist.

Low expectations FTW.

Just when I got to thinking "finally, a season with no ridiculous mole inside CTU storyline". I just got 24rolled.

I think this is basically right, I gave up on realistic story lines a long time ago. as long as it's entertaining and Hulk Smash, I really don't care.

yea i mean, this episode was just classic 24. i loved it. there's always gonna be some dumb stuff in every episode. such as jack not being able to take out a couple of measly snipers when he's got another guy spotting with ****ing infrared binoculars. or a plot twist that completely invalidates two episodes worth of subplots.

24 is not about realism, it's about excitement! this episode brought the heat! chloe threatening some dude with a gun? hell yeah! jacks team tearing apart an SUV to create a moving bullet proof shield while under heavy gunfire? booyah! dana killing a police officer and stuffing his body in the walls of CTU?! epic!

What's the deal with every CTU building/room having more room behind the walls? Didn't Nina have some **** stashed inside one of those wall compartments?

What is it, a smuggling vessel?

They took funds from the screening budget to make the walls pretty cool. What are the odds an enemy would try to get a job at CTU?

Hopefully he'll be able to go out with some dignity like George Mason or Bill Buchanan and not like Ryan Chappelle.

Wow, I'm sick of 24 having no leading information, so you couldn't possibly predict someone is a bad guy, then just...BAM they're a bad guy, didn't see that coming, did ya? Well of course I didn't. It reminds me of a poorly written detective novel where at the end it's like WHOA the butler did it! It wouldn't be so annoying, but they've done this same thing probably 5+ times. 24 is still a fun show, but there's so many annoying things about it.

funny stuff. When she was killing the parole guy I was like "best part of this subplot yet."

But yeah, if I were a troubled teen girl with a deadbeat criminal boyfriend who got my juvvy charges dropped, I think I'd find the time to (1) become an islamic terrorist, (2) change my name and masterfully cover up my identity, (3) join a counter-terrorism gov't agency, (4) become and expert techie person and rise to the TOP JOB in that feild in the place, and (5) trick / get engaged to the head of the field ops team.

I mean, 1-4 I can believe but if she really wanted to hook up with a cooworker wouldn't the other tech guy all over her be a bit easier to land?
