I didn't realise how long some of the ad breaks were until I did this.

WHY do those FLASHLIGHTS keep WORKING?

The exit signs stayed on, too. I know those usually have a battery backup. The writers were obviously taking liberties with the science of an EMP, otherwise batteries would be our best defense against them.

Is Paul going to get killed or reveal that he's been working with the terrorists all along, or do you think he and Jack are going to get out of the building with no problems?

It looks like Paul will be back to take some more torture. Not a great day for him, but I'm sure we are all waiting for the inevitable swerve from him. Is Jack ever going to be able to have kids again? Those EMP rays can't be good for anything inside.

I was happy when Secretary Heller reminded Tony that he doesn't even work there when he volunteered to take over CTU. That seemed like a pretty important part of the decision process..hmm we need a new CTU director, he/she should be smart, decisive, not Curtis, experienced...maybe actually work here? Oh well, he and Michelle can bicker with Curtis over who's in charge while Jack does all the important work outside.

That really seemed like a whole lot of commotion over Tony taking over for, what, 30 minutes? And even then, Driscoll wasn't fired. Sure, she went home for the day (and is gone for the season), but I would think that she'll be back to work in a week or so, right?

Maybe I missed the resolution to this previously, but is Heller's son still being tortured?

I can't believe they printed out the encrypted files! If they had a messaging window open, wouldn't it have been easier to just send it directly to CTU? I would love to be the CTU analyst who gets that printout dropped on his desk and has to type that in...

Heller's son was released, but I don't remember exactly why they finally relented. As for the encrypted files, I was thinking the same thing. Ah well, anything to create some more tension for the next episode.

Heller's son left a few weeks ago.

With the encrypted print outs, they could just use a scanner.

I guess the big plot is that they're going to kidnap the President because Marwan and the other terrorist were talking about everything being ready at the Air Force Base.

I just have to laugh at how Tony has gone from being an unemployed drunk to running one of the top anti-terrorist units in the country in, oh, four hours.



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: while you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits." --- President Jed Bartlett, The West Wing

This is the first 24 this year to annoy me. OK WTF is the company that made the override trying to accomplish? Sure I can buy trying to hide info but setting off an EMP in the city? Even if they kill Jack and Paul (unlikely) the govt. is going to be even more suspiscous. There is no possible way to hide something this huge from CTU and the other alphabet soups agencies. This plot seems like something COBRA would try.

I think they mentioned that the company also sold arms to terrorists. Their reasoning was that they would set off the EMP and claim that it was Marwan's doing. They didn't bank on Paul knowing some backdoor access and being able to repair a file so the plan went screwy.

The whole Jack/Paul thing is a less serious variant of what has become a common theme on this show - enemies working together to survive a greater evil (See Marcellus Wallace/Butch Coolidge). He did this in Season 2 with Nina when the plane was shot down, and in Season 3 with Ramon Salazar in prison riot. To a lesser extent, he also worked with Penticoff and even Kidnappin' Rick in Season 1. Now, while Paul can hardly be considered a villain, he and Jack ain't buds, and it is cool to see them work together (next week looks like a survival situation for them). It is fairly obvious that Paul went along to McLennan-Forrester to impress Audrey, which will only serve to get her back with him by the season's end.

That was a GREAT scene between Heller and Driscoll. That's all I can say about that.

FYI: It airs in the US on G4. http://www.g4tv.com/marvel?subpage=xmen I had much of the similar reaction when I passed it while flipping through the channels - it really is quite well done, I was hooked after the first viewing.
