'We Got A Problem!!'
Tonight!! TWO Full
Hours of Bauer Power!!

Published at: Feb. 12, 2007, 1:28 p.m. CST by hercules

I am – Hercules!! That low moaning you hear is coming out of “Prison Break” fans just now learning that their favorite convict drama has been pre-empted so Fox can air two full hours of “24,” hours dealing with the ugly machinations of Jack’s super-evil corporate daddy. Also? Chloe is relieved of duty because she’s too distraught over Morris’ kidnapping. Reed talks Tom out of resigning, suggesting sinister veep Noah Daniels may soon be running the show. Fayed uses a drill on Morris’ arm. And Assad refuses a presidential request that could save many American lives. If you missed this week’s TV Guide, it contains a mini-TV Guide (kinda the size TV Guide used to be until about 18 months ago) devoted to “24” – which, like TV Guide, is owned by NewsCorp. Pick it up if you dare; it’s loaded with juicy scoop, much of it dealing with episodes airing after tonight. Invisotext ON! Revelations include: * President Charles Logan, who returns next week, now has lots more facial hair. The photo suggests newly installed President Hal Gardner gave Logan a pardon, which is probably why Wayne Palmer now commands the presidential bunker. * Aaron Pierce and Martha Logan will be getting together again. * Producer/director Jon Cassar maintains a list of all the characters who disappeared without perishing in prior seasons, among them season two’s Lynne Kresge and season four’s Behroooooooz! * At least three cast members are doomed this year, but it’s unclear if one of those three is Curtis Manning. * The medal around Jack’s neck at the end of season five does carry meaning that will be revealed. * “I can’t see it happening at the moment,” Cassar says of a “24” movie. * Chloe’s new look is supposed to reflect the growing up she did last season when she watched Edgar die. 8 p.m. Monday. Fox.

    Oh, wait, Fox gave us another hour, so everything is cool about us missing those terrorists...<p> Also, they should have Behrooz return with a gun trying to shoot Jack, and we can discover that the reason we never saw him again was he was rescued by Curtis and they became lovers... And now Behrooooz wants revenge...

    I saw the first season of Prison break

    by emeraldboy

    and it was one of those shows that I found riveting and irritating at the same time. the best uk tv show of the 2006 is back. Life on Mars Season 2 is on tomorrrow. Marc warren takes center stage. Just cause he is in a coma you would think that warren would leave him DI sam Tyler alone, not so as you will see.....

    by mrmgp

    While this season hasn't been the best, you can't beat the moment Valencia went up in a flash of blinding light and a cloud of smoke. I say we need more city nuking on TV. Why should Jericho have all the fun of nuclear attack?

    by Garbageman33

    Seriously...the Bluetooth mastermind from last year is/was his brother? His dad is basically Dr. Evil? Really? This has been the worst season by far. Unless you're a big fan of unintentional comedy.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 9:41 a.m. CST

    Somebody clear something up for me

    by Leopold Scotch

    Why go all the way of convincing Jack that his dad is innocent by doing all that pantomime crap with his brother pretending he was going to kill his dad? Does his dad want Jack to survive despite him foiling plans left right and centre? If not, why didn't they kill him instead of playing out the "they were going to kill us both" gag?

    by Garbageman33

    Just sit back and enjoy, secure in the knowledge that the only person capable of saving the universe, not once, but six times, is a 5'7" former heroin addict with Phil Mickelson's man-breasts.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:03 a.m. CST

    I'm still a fan of the show Garbageman33

    by Leopold Scotch

    but I'm just a bit annoyed that some of the things done appear to be just for the drama of the "reveal" moment. I'll wait and see how it plays out, but for now, it seems like there have been too many twists for twist's sake so far this season.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:06 a.m. CST

    It actually reminds me of the documentary

    by Leopold Scotch

    On one of the seasons where the writing team is assembled on April Fool's day and given a really stupid twist for the end of the season.<br><br>"So Jack's dad walks into the room and his son says 'how am I doing?'"<br><br>To be honest, I enjoyed the Blutooth brother twist, but the dad twist on top of it just seemed over-indulgent on the drama. Plus the Blutooth character could have had a lot more screen time to make the twist more than just the reveal moment.

    24 is the TV equivalent of junk food

    by Garbageman33

    In that you get a really nice rush from it, like when Michelle and Tony got blown up. But then, you crash soon after, like when you realize there are no decent supporting characters left. Mostly because they all got blown up.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:35 a.m. CST

    Wayne Palmer did win on his merits

    by CTU Mole

    Just like George Bush Jr did.<p>And if '24' is junk food, it's excellently written, acted, edited and produced junk food, more so than most feature films.</p>

    Agreed - Shark jumping when it bacame a family affair!

    by kinghenryVIII

    I hate that shit - it's always the "easy" way to go .... why not, make it a family? Too easy and too neat. Some seriously fucked up shit needs to happen to pull this of / redeem it's self in my opinion. When it was revealed that Robo Cop was Jacks brother - i laughed my ass off and almost turned off the tv.<p> In other news though - I turn off the phone and watch intently, simply because it's on right before Miami CSI, which is hands down, the funniest fucking show on tv.

    "and was amazed how that crap could be so popular."

    by Jack_Bauer

    The first episode wasn't all that, but you should have stuck with it for more than 1 ep. The first season is one of the most tightly written season's of television in a long time.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 12:13 p.m. CST

    Leopold Scotch: I answered that last week

    by chrth

    If they kill Jack, then CTU is going to keep its eye firmly on the Bauer Biz. Keeping Jack alive and trusting his Palpy, er, Pappy is a better move for keeping the company clean.

    A questioned I posed last week

    by chrth

    That didn't get answered because it was towards the end of the TB life:<p> what is the Bauer Business' involvement in the nuke plot? Last season, we know that they were attempting to start a war in a Fictional Central Asian nation.<p> This season it looks like they're part of it too. What is the purpose of the nukes? Is it to destabilize the Palmer administration and get Powers Boothe the Presidency? Is it to start another war in order to secure America's interest (ie oil) like last season? And did they know Fayed (who they are at least aware of if not directly working with) was going to demand Jack Bauer?

    Prison Break Has Been Phenomenal

    by topaz4206

    Prison Break Has Been Phenomenal since they got back from the Christmas break. For those that may not understand the phenomenon, it does not pretend to be high art. Like the old Saturday Morning Serials, it knows it's trash, but still entertaining as all heck.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 12:50 p.m. CST

    "it does not pretend to be high art"

    by newc0253

    hey, i like a lot of things that don't pretend to be high art. in fact, i tend to prefer them to high art. but the 1st episode of prison break didn't even approach a minimal degree of credibility. i can suspend disbelief plenty, but i have a hard time suspending cognitive function altogether. i would have had to sustained frontal lobe damage to enjoy that dreck.

    I think, chrth, that the Bauer family biz...

    by Childe Roland

    ...was interested on paper to the extent that it profited from the sale of decommissioned nukes to terrorists. Things said by Bluetooth seem to indicate that the ultimate motive is more altruistic, however, having to do with the ultimate and greater good of the nation being attained through the chaos wrought by those nukes in terrorist hands. This rhetoric is not unfamiliar, having been embraced by Logan last season, and isn't even all that outrageous if you look at the philosophy behind it (something about giving the American peole a common enemy so they will be driven toward common goals). I just wish they hadn't gone the Luke/Darth route with Jack and Giant Bauer. Especially with Jack's hand all messed up. It's like they're borrowing pages from two of the most questionable playbooks in history (George Lucas' Star Wars and the Republicans' Project for a New AMerican Century). How can that end well?

    The new Palmer's acting sucks this season....

    by JKrow21

    I'm not sure if it's the dialogue or the acting itself since he was good this season but he sucks as President. Also his sister is a terrible character.

    The two Palmer's need to go

    by andrew coleman

    The sister is really annoying and I really wouldn't mind if she got knocked off, and I'm thinking something bad will happen to Palmer this season as President since the bad guy from Sudden Death is the Vice President. Maybe Jack will have to stop Arab terrorists backed by his father when they attempt to blow up a Pittsburgh Penguins game. That would be sweet. So far my favorite season I think is 2 or 3 I can't decide. The worst maybe last season even though it had Robo Cop as a bad guy.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 6:09 p.m. CST

    They are playing up the Buchanan marriage too much

    by eppdude

    too many loving moments on the phone. One or both of them is dead meat. Milo, I think, also has to eat it. Why else did they bring him back? He's fucking useless. Don't look for Pres. Palmer to die - they've already killed one president in office, killed a retired pres, and made a pres the bad guy. Those are my thoughts.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 6:11 p.m. CST

    Also, this season has been the most ridiculous thus far

    by eppdude

    Wayne as president is stupid. End of story. But I accept it. The whole Bauer family angle was descent at first, and I loved the scene last week with Jack really struggling with his brother - but making daddy the baddie? Sorry. That's too far. Whomever made the Darth reference was spot on.

    To those saying the show jumped the shark

    by Jack Burton

    It happened LONG before this season. Sometime around season 2 with Jack dying and being revived only to kick ass with never a mention of the event. But I don't care, 24 is still the most consistently entertaining show on TV. I didn't say the best, I said the most entertaining. And tonight's 2 hours were some of the best in the show's history. Even if the "real time" conceit is running very thin (come on, they got from Fayed's hideout to CTU in less than 5 minutes. really? was the building in CTU's parking lot?) but it's still fun. Just have to ignore the glaring and massive logic holes (Jack's dad, the owner of the company known to have provided Fayed with the nukes, is allowed to wander around CTU as he sees fit and leave when he wants? Probably not.) and go along for the ride.

    Tony & Curtis...

    by Henry Fool

    One thing I'll say about Tony's death, is that they've completely numbed me from having any fallouts over any future characters they decide to kill. At least he got killed by Robocop (who was taking orders from the melting man, aka Gram Bauer, in case anyone didn't notice). After Michelle got blown up, I was really amped to see Tony wake up (knowing that'd happen, eventually) and take revenge. Instead, they abruptly killed him. He only appeared in three episodes in season five! In comparison, Curtis' death seemed comical. Let's face it, newer characters like Bill Buchanan and his wife just don't have the appeal of old faves like Tony, Chloe, and George Mason. Even Michelle, who was basically a Nina replacement, grew and became interesting over time. 24 walks a tightrope, because of their liberal willingness to kill characters, it's hard to get emotionally involved with it. However, interesting characters like Assad certainly do keep things fresh. Hopefully, when they Kill Bill (nyuck, nyuck) Buchanan they'll replace him with someone with a more sardonic wit like George Mason (who should've gotten his own spin off series).

    by Alonzo Mosely

    The computer geek turned mid-level manager did more than 90% of the trained field agents ever manage. I think it proves my theory that the only thing the field agents are trained to do is make a perimeter and stay out of sight. Government cut backs meant they couldn't afford the next two training sessions. "How to stop the main bad guy escaping" and "How not to die yourself".

Oh, and wackybantha, your post made me crack up too. I liked the whispered "dammit" while he was working on the nuke. I bet Kiefer had a good laugh over that one after they yelled "cut."

    by The Selecter

    24 has officially entered its typical mid-season lull. It shifts from the butt-kicking Jack Bauer in the field to the political subterfuge and the contrived love connections in the world of CTU and the White House...in order words, not what 24 does best. The second hour was ZZZzzz-inducing, other than that bit of action at the end.<br><br>But, good to know that Mo (the weak link -- who should field guilty) possesses the same super-healing powers his colleages have. Just freed from Chinese tortue camp? No problem. Just had surgery? No problem. Tortured with a drill? Back to work!!<br><br> I suspect the season will perk up again once Mr. Silver Spoon arrives to assist Last Man Standing Jack with his field duties; every other beloved field agent is dead.

    Didn't occur to me until this morning....

    by CatVutt

    But the fact that Morris went right back to his desk is fucking hilarious. In the span of two hours, he was kidnapped, had the shit beat out of him, holes drilled into him, watched a woman die in front of him, handed over a device to program nukes to a terrorist, got almost blown the fuck up and knocked unconscious, got chastised by Jack, got a ride BACK to CTU, checked out by the doc, dusted himself off and SAT BACK DOWN AT HIS WORK STATION. Basically, the guy had a REALLY long lunch hour. And I here I thought having to come back to work after my occasional two-hour, three martini lunches sucked. Yeesh. Hey, Morris...feel free to squeeze in a couple hands of Freecell cuz, damn pal, you earned it.

    I think Milo did a great job, and I think he survives

    by chrth

    However, if I was him, I would've pulled two grenades, just in case.<p> Palpa Bauer is so evil he makes Palpatine look like an amateur. I'm surprised they're bringing that to a head so soon, I expected that to be towards the end a la Henderson (although I imagine it's possible he'll escape and re-emerge)<p> I agree with Shermdawg, this season has been great so far. The only weak episode was the Graem-turning-tables-on-Jack-and-Palpy one, but after the reveal of the next episode it got retroacively cooler.<p> Also, I know the White House intrigue seems dull and boring, but I think 24 is trying to get their second act set up early rather than shifting gears midway through like they've done in the past<p> Anyone else want to Russian to say 'The purpose of a bomb is to explode'?<p> Finally, what happened to Fayed? Is he leaving LA? (I didn't fully catch the convo b/t him and the Russian, I thought I heard mention of Nevada)

  • Feb. 13, 2007, 8:21 a.m. CST

    The first hour was the best episode all year

    by Garbageman33

    Mostly because I care about the Fayed storyline and it focused on that almost exclusively. Plus, lots of stuff went boom. Trouble is, the second hour reverted back to Bauerland and the Presidential bunker. Sorry, but I'm just not willing to suspend disbelief enough to think that Jack's family is to blame for all the terrorist threats over the last two seasons. It's too much. Even for 24. As I said in an earlier post, at this rate, I'm fully expecting Jack's evil twin to make an appearance.

    by _Maltheus_

    <p>...and he's walking into CTU a half an hour later??? I've always suspended disbelief for this show, but it's getting nearly impossible to do so anymore. Why did Rena send Jack to that house without telling him what the situation was? If her son were there, she'd be risking his life. If he wasn't there yet, then she'd be blowing any chance of getting him back after they've bashed the doors down. Why didn't Fayed leave right away and torture Morris somewhere else? He knew CTU was on to him, I guess he also knew they were incompetent. And for a two hour sweeps special, I'm surprised to find myself so bored. I guess I shouldn't be though, it's fairly typical at this point in the season.</p> <p>Seanny_d doesn't buy three corrupt administrations in a row??? How bout four, like in real life? How bout most administrations? You simply don't get to that position of power on your own. You need a proven track record of corruptibility to even be considered for it. You can't go a single year without hearing about some major corruption scandal in the congress. It's the nature of power and they are far more corrupt in real life than they ever are on TV. If you say, here is where all the money and power is, you pretty much guarantee that all the thugs will be trying to grab it. It's common sense, not unbelievable.</p>

Classic 24... you have the political assholes trying to undermine (and outright kill, this time) the president, classic "DUMB BITCH!" moments (the blonde chick, Graem's wife), people who have been tortured/wounded/etc going right back to work, and Fayed pulling a Marwan and escaping down a hole. <p><p>Next week is gonna be awesome, hopefully they don't kill off Milo.

    C'mon Maltheus, in real life U.S. administrations are not corrupt, are full of love and joy and peace and white doves and rainbows and midgets riding tri-cycles...that's what our administrations are made of!

    Assad's trip was three hours?

    by DarthCorleone

    He left CTU at the end of episode five, I think, when he shook Bill Buchanan's hand. Did he show up at the bunker in the middle of last night's two hours or at the beginning? Because if it was the beginning, it was only a two-hour trip. Oh, and Fayed's little escape plan was interesting. That's an unusual amount of confidence he has that he can set the trigger, escape the blast, and get out in a chopper (that also wouldn't be affected by the blast). I'd believe he'd be willing to be a martyr if he didn't have the all-important gadget for setting off the other three nukes with him. Of course, maybe he knew that Jack Bauer would defuse the bomb and was just using it as a delaying tactic.

    My respect for MIlo just shot up 100%

    by BLWiseass

    But i am getting sick of the weekly torture scene. Its no longer surprising or shocking. They have over used it.

    When Morris was getting his legs beat with a bat...

    by fanboy71

    Did anyone else picture Dave Chappelle as Rick James yelling "Fuck Yo couch nigga!"?? And when Bill accused Jack of pointing a gun at a fellow agent I pictured Jack saying "That's just how I roll!" haha Seriously, who HASN'T Jack pointed a gun at?

  • Feb. 13, 2007, 3:58 p.m. CST

    fanboy71: Yeah, Jack should've pulled his gun on Bill

    Seriously, folks...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...a couple years back they woke up some ACLU guy, he contacted a judge, met the judge got a court order from the judge and made his way to CTU to deliver it within the course of a half hour. At that point I realized I had to let go of certain things in order to continue to enjoy what really is a giddily overblown, wildly baroque, extremely improbable roller coaster ride of a show. It's only logic, really. What were you using it for anyway, that's worth missing the fun of say, watching Agent Pierce lean out of the car that was just hit by a ROCKET and shoot down a half dozen terrorists while still strapped in his seatbelt, then shoot one of them a second time just to watch him explode? Some things you've just got to let flow over you.

    Revenge... Commie-style.

    You gotta love the purity of the enemy's motive this year. Well, the Russians anyway.

    so that wasn't just me fanboy71

    by _Maltheus_

    He really was getting his legs bashed by a bat then. It doesn't take much to shatter a kneecap. How the fuck are we suppose to buy that he was walking into CTU shortly after with barely a limp??? Truly one of the most absurd moments in the show's entire run.

    Ender...Maltheus

    by Red Ned Lynch

    Ender...indeed, sir. Indeed. Maltheus...they were hitting the backs of his thighs. It was a terrorist initiation. The only reason Fayed used the drill is that CTU was closing in and they didn't have time to heat up a clotheshanger for the terrorist fraternity brand. Are you even watching this show?

    Wayne Palmer and his acting skillz

    by Ultron ver 2.0

    I can't handle Palmers delivery...I don't know if it's the writing or the way he's acting out the lines, but it's BRUTAL. This season is the weakest by far. I'm a pretty big 24 fanboi, but the storylines are brutal....Bluetooth is his brother? The President's sister beating us over the head with the whole constitution issue? Even Bisquit, who is a decent actor, is sucking in this...must be the writing.

  • Feb. 13, 2007, 5:46 p.m. CST

    er

    by Ultron ver 2.0

    that would be Biscuit....not Bisquick....or even Shiznit.

  • Feb. 13, 2007, 6:38 p.m. CST

    Wayne haters...

    by Alonzo Mosely

    How he is acting is intentional, they are trying to get across that he is a guy way out of his depth, desperately trying to be his brother. <p> I almost guarantee at some point this season, when faced with an impossible decision, they will have him talk to a photo of David. <p> In other words, just like those who hate on Chloe, what you are annoyed by is intentional, rather than an inability to act.

    LOL this guy always plays "The Russian Villain" (TM), but hey, gotta play to your strengths.

    Wasn't he also "Boris, the Sneaky Fucking Russian"

    by Darth_Gonz

    .....from "Snatch"? If that's the case, then he cannot be killed!

    chrth, I didn't say this season was great.

    by Shermdawg

    I meant compared to last season it has been great. There's still major problems with it though. The Palmers, mainly. Killing Curtis was another bad move. But the stuff with Graem and Jack's Pappy have been unbelievable. And yes, onc again, last night's two parter was AWESOME. It's a little too soon to deem season six "great".<br><br>And without Tony, the best it could probably do is..."really, really, good".

    Go Milo!

    Milo's got a gun you bastards!

    I am a Fan of 24...

    by chromedome

    ...but this season is such a let-down. The only reasons to continue watching are Rena Sofer eye-candy and the hope for a Mandy appearance.<p>Morris has hopes that they will let him live if he helps them?<p>Bluetooth Bro was their ONLY known link to the terrorists, and his cell phone is just laying around for anybody to grab and erase?<p>Bluetooth's wife spews venom at Jack every frickin chance she gets UNTIL she learns he (as far as they know) killed her husband, then she is all chummy with him?<p>Yet another Presidential assassination plot, more White House staffers in dark shadow government plots?<p>sometimes they can monitor Fayed's cellphone calls, sometimes not?<p>Papa Bauer can make illicit cell phone calls FROM WITHIN CTU unmonitored? after all the cell calls from CTU that screwed em in past episodes--they still don't monitor that shit? If you work in a truly secure facility, you can't even take a personal cell phone inside, much less can a visitor!<p>I really used to like this show, I really did--the stupid stuff was outweighed by the WOW and HOLY SHIT and Take Your Breath Away stuff, but this season has me shaking my head at 95% of it, and very few wow moments. Really Sad.<p>Really, really sad.

    Great season so far! I like it a lot!

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    The last few minutes of ep 9 were ultra-cool. Milo now in the field? Goil, I say!

    Suspension of disbelief

    by caninedevotion

    I love how people feel the need to dissect a show on logical and practical merits. No one person has ever done in a lifetime what Bauer has done in one day. That's why 24 is so much fun to watch. It's quite like House M.D. Sherlock Holmes never existed and neither did Gregory House. There is certainly no way that many interesting cases would appear at that particular hospital, but the show hinges upon that suspension of disbelief. All I am saying, if you want to criticize 24 on the feasibility of events, you may want to start with season one and the fact that Jack Bauer would never have survived that 24 hour period. The way I see it, good dramatic television shows (Lost, 24, House, The Shield) take utterly farfetched characters and scenarios and inject the normalcy we know into them. Not the other way around.

  • Feb. 14, 2007, 8:55 a.m. CST

    no way Yack

    by just pillow talk

    if Morris could put up with Chloe he could have taken more drilling to various body parts. Better to face the drill than listen to Chloe.

    Line cut from Buchanan-Milo talk

    "Milo go with Jack. And while you're at it, would you mind putting on a red shirt?"

    I like Milo...

    But how did he survive this long?

    Hopefully Milo doesnt end up like George Mason

    Full of radiation and piloting an airplane into the ground.
