omg totally awesome. If I wasn't already sold, Jack flying at Tony would've done it.
I like how they've kept Tony's status as undeclared. He didn't kill anyone and he's only responsible for a criminal otherwise escaping the law. That's perfectly fine by 24 standards.
So glad they killed off the President's Son bit in the interim. I don't expect this aftermath storyline to last too much past tomorrow either, since it's pretty extraneous to everything at this point except to perhaps get the First Husband into position for something else.
Whoever does the sound for this show deserves something for both the basement FBI mole scene and the boat.
Janeane Garofalo sure seems like bad casting so far.
Janeane Garofalo was really annoying and I anxiously wait for Chloe to show up and smack the crap out of her.
Other then that, I can't remember the last time this show has had me wanting the next hour so badly. Tony's just GOTTA BE a mole and working for some other agency. There's no way in hell Tony's a bad guy... he just can't be.
We also need more Kurtwood Smith. He should have called Jack a jackass just for old times sake.
Nice opener. The 2 year gap took the bad taste out of my mouth for 24. Nice casting with Kurtwood, the hot redhead, the smart ass guy from Entourage, and the always great Bob Gunton. The Wife thinks he should finish all of his sentences with "Fuzzy britches".

I loved how Senator Red Foreman said the panel would reconvene in 24 hours. It would be great if the season ends with Jack stumbling into the chamber, disheveled and beaten up from a day of action, plops down in front of the microphone and says, "As I was saying...."
Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death!

I always thought it was "fussy britches". That's how I remember it from Shawshank, anyways...
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
It started and ended well, but otherwise I thought it was slow with a couple of vintage Jack moments. (Not hacksaw vintage, but still...) The newbies all range from bland to irritating, but I know this show will still find a way to make me care about them.
I'm watching a day behind (though I admit I was hooked enough by the first two hours to think about staying up to watch the second two hours), so I'll chime in on the other thread tomorrow night.
I'm dying to know how Dubaku survived an exploding Robert Carlyle.
Conan O'Brien was fairly well-known as a writer for SNL & the Simpsons before he got his gig. Michael Ian Black is fairly well-known as a cast member on Ed (which had excellent writing), and obscurely known as a writer for The State and Viva Variety.
