Sorry for starting a new thread but the other thread became one about Carnivale, so I made a judgment call.

Sorry Audrey, Jack hasn't done "love" in about 5 years. Oh wait, he thinks he's falling in love with her? Who the hell is this? Oh ok, he just shot a suspect. Jack truly is back. Phew.

Actually, Jack wasn't fully "back" until he started driving Ronnie's all-new Ford F-150. Very symbolic I thought. It was an F-150 right?

That shot of the rocket flying behind Audrey was absolutely awesome. In a similar vein, that shot of Jack from the preview (and almost every commercial leading up to yesterday) pulling down the ski mask may be the defining image of this season. I get chills everytime I see that.

Very hard to get a reading on Behrooz. Is he loyal to his father and the cause? On that note, how about the wife? American Debbie's future does not look good either way.

The one thing that really irked me was that Jack had the ability to contact Andrew Paige at any time before he and Ronnie got to him, but he didn't. I understand that Jack had no idea someone tapped his initial call, but Jack's usually more cautious than that.

This season is off to a great start, I think. Very spooky because it's very topical.

24 is back, and back with a bang. And another bang. And another. Awesome stuff to start things out.

The clean sweep of CTU is cool. Now, we're back to the way things were in Season One when you didn't know any of the characters or where they stood. Erin Driscoll seems like one mean bitch, even if she is inept.

You gotta love Ronnie. There's nothing like introducing a character with a giant bullseye painted on his forehead. The best part, aside from the fight at the end, was when Ronnie needed Jack's super sense to deal with the situation in the laundromat. I bet even Tony could kick his ass.

One of the big running themes over the first two hours are people trying to be half the man Jack Bauer is. There's Erin Driscoll, trying to fill Jack's shoes by being the CTU head no one screws with. Then there's poor Ronnie, Jack-Lite. And finally, there was that terrorist guy who said the infamous last words, "Yeah. I'm Jack Bauer."

But, now Jack is back to show them how the game is REALLY played. Even if he has lost his groove to the point where a Judo Chop from Ronnie takes him out. He's got 22 hours to get to the point where he can kill an entire army.

If the writers are still writing with the idea of a big overall conspiracy for all of the seasons, one thing to note last night was that the Terrorist Family mentioned that they had been working on today's plan for 5 years. Season 3 takes place 3 years after Season 2. Season 4 takes place 18 months after Season 3. That's five years (okay, 4.5). This could be related to the attack on Palmer and those shadow puppetmasters Max the German Yachtsman and Whitey The Corporate White Guy.

They're staying topical this season, using a terrorist beheading as the focal point instead of a large-scale terrorist attack. After that, I'm sure there is something bigger but there probably isn't a big running theme like an Assassination, a Nuke, or a Viral Attack to carry us through the season. Could be an interesting day.

Too bad we have to wait till next week for our next hour of excitement.

EDIT: Oh, yeah. And New Teri Bauer was talking to someone named Max from Vandenberg (the military base?) on the phone in the limo. (credit to Dr. Unlikely)

And of course Lukas Haas was stupid enough to believe a guy that looked like that was named Jack Bauer. This isn't meant as a racist dig, but c'mon, wouldn't it be a little bit suspicious if you meant an Arab American who's name didn't sound Arab/Islamic at all? Or maybe Lukas Haas just thinks, "ah he was probably adopted or something."

I'll take Jack Bauer in prime time for free over shitty WWE TV anyday.

I don't know. I thought the writing and directing weren't up to par with the last three seasons. Also, I don't think the new actors are as good. Keifer is still awesome, and I liked Heller and the black guy at CTU whose name I didn't catch, but the others just aren't doing it for me. And as for Ronnie, Sklokazoid, you took the words right out of my mouth. I bet even Tony could kick his ass.

What was interesting to me was that I have grown so used to characters getting introduced and then quickly meeting untimely demises that some of the shockingness of the show has worn off too much. For example when Andrew Paige's mom and co-workers are all killed. I never doubted for a moment that they weren't.

And it was nice how they qucikly explained away Kim and Chase being away. I hope they stay that way.



"Flaming Box of Stuff:

If a brewery closes in the middle of the Pacific Northwest and no one cares, what happens to the soon-to-be-unemployed? The refreshingly low-keyed Seattle troupe answers that question in "It's the Water." Set in the 1970s — the show opens with black lights, "Dark Side of the Moon" and a character named Burnout — but not so '70s that anyone makes a "Laverne and Shirley" joke.

In the opening sequence, the plant manager, a one-man Revenge of the Nerd, ducks his workers' questions about rumors of a layoff. From there, the show moves from direct silliness (a bear-hunting expedition during the final company picnic) to an unexpectedly moving encounter between a brewery grunt and a waitress in a local tavern. There's a pleasing lack of strain in "It's the Water."

I don't think they could have started the season better. They came in with action, suspense & the establishment of the core characters.

I'm interested in seeing if the teenager gets offed by his won dad.

So the bad guys launched a computer virus that let them take over the internet??? That fairly ridiculous plot point aside, it was a pretty cool premiere. The Bauer body count is still at zero, so hopefully tonight's episode will pump up the jams, so to speak.

The new black CTU operative's name is Curtis I believe. He seems to be fulfilling Tony's role this season.

The "I think I'm falling in love with you, too" line worried me for a second as well, but it nice to see Jack back. Andrew Paige, the Kyle Singer of this season perhaps, hell...does anyone wanna take bets on how long he lasts?

Chloe is back, too. I don't know if anyone else likes her insufferable ass, but I think she is comic gold. Am I just twisted, or does she look kinda...I don't know..hot this season?

Maybe that's the big twist this season. Jack's girlfriend is killed and he finds solace in the loving arms of Chloe. They've done a lot of shocking stuff on this show, but I think even THAT would be pushing it.

Nononono, because she will already be with the love of her life: Edgar. God, could you imagine the offspring?

So, Jack is a renegade and there's internal fighting within CTU. Yes, I can see how the show is getting a fresh start.

This season definitely has potential if they don't get bogged down with stupid secondary plots. I just hope it's not the same crap with new faces.

I will say that Terrorist Mom* makes Sherry Palmer look like Cinderella. Did she actually hiss at Terrorist Son*?

* The main drawback of having 4 episodes in two days: I can't remember anyone's name yet.

I suppose it was good that they ended up putting these two eps together cause Hour 3 dragged a little (but it was still good).

Man, what the hell is going on with CTU? First, their stupid head of field ops gets killed for making a stupid mistake. And then, Miss Driscoll continues to amaze with her really poor instincts. I mean, I know the first rule of running CTU is "never listen to Jack Bauer (even though he's always right)," but Driscoll is just completely *off* on everything so far. I wonder if she has some issues at home. Oh. I got really pissed when they overloaded the soap opera factor with Driscoll's schizo daughter, but then I let it go because everything serves a purpose...I think. Then there's Curtis. Man, he ain't no Tony Almeida. Tony didn't even blink twice about torturing Nina. Of course, it was Nina Myers. But still, Tony would never have second-guessed himself in the middle of an interrogation - in front of the suspect.

EDIT: I almost forgot - Fox.com's recap says that Curtis' torture man was actually the same one who (tried to) torture Nina last season. Awesome.

Uh, OK. It's not so much chills anymore. I actually kinda laughed when it happened. But it was the kind of laugh that said that Jack Bauer is the coolest man alive. The whole hold-up was brilliant I thought. Jack managed to disarm the hostile, take his phone and wallet, and keep tabs on him till Chloe came through.

Speaking of Chloe, she is definitely hot this season.

Phew, I thought I was the only one that thought she was really kinda hot this year. I never liked her before this year, because she always seemed liked a liability and a hinderance. This year, all the rest of CTU is a bunch of unreliable idiots (or so it seems....) and Chloe is now the one who sees the brilliance of Jack Bauer.

Would have been nice to see some of the old faces, but that's not too big of a deal.

Jack is definately the man. He's got no qualms about creating a hostage situation or running amok of the incompetent CTU director.

Is it just me or does Marian Taylor = Sherry Palmer, part dos?

Is the new president gonna have a big role? It doesn't seem like, but I guess he'll have to. I iss Palmer, but I guess that's OK since we can still see him in the insurance commercials.

That scene with the rocket at Heller's son's house was pretty frickin' sweet.

Overall, eight thumbs up (two per show.)

Don't worry, Palmer is going to show up sooner or later.

Not sure what to think of President Keeler so far. They are keeping him kind of ambigious like he could go either way. Though last season he was clearly playing the bad guy so we know that's a possibility.

How many episodes in until we find out that the bad guys are really just rich white people?
