I thought this was one of the better episodes of mostly talking, and then got a fun fight to end the show.

Liberal Senator Red Foreman got to be an actual person instead of a caricature and the whole thing felt like a more honest interaction of people with different views than most every conversations of this sort on this show. Of course, anyone has a meaningful conversation with Jack is sure to be dead soon (somehow I didn't see it coming!)

I thought Miles was good for the one hour appearance and the he said/she said White House stuff was resolved quicker than I feared, so that was great. Thought they were going somewhere with the lines the daughter suggested added to her speech - maybe later?

The Renee/Jack relationship is interesting, though perhaps not as hilarious as it might have been:

Yay to whoever decided doing the laughable expected cliched bit was not the wise choice.

I agree with all that, especially the bit about how I should have known the Senator was toast, but was still surprised when it happened.

I'm enjoying this season, but apparently not so much that I find myself starting threads about it - OR giving quality replies when one IS started!

Jack managed to combine both Steve Austin (using heavy machinery to cause havoc) and Jim Duggan (a 2X4) into one fight scene. Good times.



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.

Is still can't look at Rory Cochrane and not think of Slater from Dazed and Confused.

...or Carlo Rota!!! I know him from Little Mosque on the Prairie, and seeing him here was quite a shock. Seeing him play an arrogant prick in this show (as opposed to an affable nice guy in Little Mosque) is quite a fun change.

Thanks to Wikipedia, I found out he's been on that show fairly regularly over the past few years, but it's still quite a shock, seeing as though I started watching both 24 and LM this year.

Count me in for "should have seen it coming but didn't." Like Jack, I actually fell for the possibility of working with Senator Clarence Bodicker to bring down Starkwood.

You gotta feel for Larry Moss. That guy must have an epic headache trying to make sense of all the lunacy he's stuck in the middle of.

Olivia Taylor is turning out to be pretty interesting. The President's daughter has some burgeoning supervillain qualities to her. Neither mother nor daughter are particularly concerned with the hospitalized First Gentleman these last couple of hours.

Isn't Kim Bauer supposed to appear this season? Clock's ticking on that.
