-- Aw. CTU replaced that great ringtone of theirs. I was actually tempted to download that for my cell phone a few years ago, but at the last minute, it dawned on me that maybe it wouldn't be quite as cool as I thought, and indeed, might even be considered lame. Yeah, I know. I don't get it, either.
-- No one ever wants to postpone peace conferences on this show. You'd think that maybe by now, what with all the terrorism and dead people and all, the idea wouldn't be immediately dismissed.
-- Wow, CTU identified the perceived threat to President Hassan and coordinated a take down in no time flat. The L.A. branch never would have been this efficient. Of course, this all but guarantees that the reporter is totally innocent and they got the wrong person. But still, well done, CTU.
-- Incidentally, in 24-time, it's been roughly 15 years since the show started. That means most of the people in CTU New York were in high school way back in the first season.
-- If Dana doesn't want people staring at her breasts, maybe she shouldn't wear that outfit to the office. I'm surprised anyone's looking at anything aside from her breasts.
-- And the season makes its first major misstep with this retarded bit about Dana being blackmailed or threatened or whatever by the redneck guy from her past. Just once, it would be nice if we didn't have to sit through this sort of CTU nonsense, which will inevitably result in all kinds of bad things happening, and could have easily been prevented by Dana/Jenny/whoever simply telling the truth from the start.
-- I can't believe Kim, of all people, is having to talk Jack into doing the right thing. This might be the lowest point of the whole series. Well, not really. Not even close. But still, it's pretty awful.
-- I get that Hastings is sort of the incompetent, cover-your-ass bureaucrat-type, ala George Mason. But again, by now doesn't it just make sense to treat anything Jack Bauer tells you as gospel?
-- Heh. Shooting a man's wife in the leg to make a point. At least Mike boned up on Bauer 101, even if Hastings hasn't.
Jack's confirmed kills: 0 (2 for the season)
