Last week, the preview appeared to (me, maybe just me) show the Russians electrocuting Jack's groin, which is what the WWE bit I was referring to. Instead, it was just more general electrocution and no one was superkicked into a flaming dumpster.

So far, Jack has been electrocuted, stabbed, shot (winged!) and caught in the explosion of a helicopter, not to mention various punches. It's only 1/3rd in, and Jack may be the only guy who misses CTU.

It was nice the radioactive son subplot set up the (still kinda iffy) plot twist to end the episode, and Farhad seems to have all the luck (except for the assassination failing.) There is no possible plot twist that can be worth the Dana/evil boyfriend/eviler boyfriend's friend subplot. Even the show seems to be remarking how tired they are of the subplot, and it doesn't seem anywhere near over.

The actor playing Bazahaev (father Russian) did a strong job with his big scene. The actor playing Hassan, less so.

The only thing I've been enjoying about the Starbuck and the Rednecks subplot is charting how her hair gradually slings over her left shoulder less and less as her decision-making gets worse and worse and she falls apart more and more.

Ah, strip clubs on television. They're never as strippy as they are in real life. I believe the Rednecks went to Scores, but I could be wrong.

I liked Hassan's daughter's talk with her father. "What's happened to you? You've changed so much in the last couple of hours!"

Re: the amount of punishment Jack has taken. A friend once told me that 24 makes way more sense if you assume that Jack is Wolverine. Short, Canadian, short-tempered, it all fits.

I love how Dana getting assurance from her fiancee that he'll always love her led to her next move of "Well, if Freddie loves me anyway, time to go a'murderin'!"

Fun in-joke: I think the strip club was called Starbuck's.



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

Show started off a little slow, but picked up as things worsened and all the problems began to pile on top of each other. I actually thought Roger's clingy girl would last a little longer in the episode than she did.
