I remember seeing a thread before the lost information chaos about the show and I was unable to find the thread afterwards... spolers alert btw...

but what about that episode last night?!! (January 19th, 2008) I seen in some previews of Renee Walker that she gets out of that trench just would like to see how she does it... or Jack going back to get her out...

The thread was lost. Can we get a moderator to rename this one "New season of 24"?

Agent Freckles is in a bind isn't she? Did you notice that the closing clock had the sound of her gasping for air?

I suspect the guy from the AG's office is dirty, and just sucks at being bad.

My guess is that the blond computer girl is the leak in the FBI. She is sleeping with Computer Dork to gain more access.

I have a feeling that Agent Backstreet won't survive the next episode.

So far Jack only has credit for .5 kills on the season.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. They don't believe in subtelty do they?

The season has been decent so far. It has pretty much all the same elements of just about every other season, but with different names and setting. But I'll watch because it's a fun format for the most part and Lost is about the only other show I watch, so I need some TV to watch. I just hope this season doesn't go the way of the last. Season 6 was collosal waste of time, IMO.

Edgar did get the silent clock. It is assumed that he died, you know with him convulsing, and foaming at the mouth from nerve gas......

Tony did not get the silent clock. It was quickly picked up on that he might not be dead.

Freckles is heard gasping during the clock. Therefore it is not a silent clock.

President Taylor is most likely from the same party as Charles Logan? Is there any secret that suddenly the corruption is coming from the same party? Is there any significance to that at all?

The way I see it.

The Party of Logan
Taylor (elected)
Gardner (VP ascension)
Logan (VP ascension)
Keeler (elected)

The Party of Palmer
Daniels (VP ascension)
Wayne Palmer (elected)
David Palmer (elected)

Deep Inside the Grim ‘24,’ Two Comics’ Inside Joke
By DAVE ITZKOFF
Published: February 15, 2009

In most offices, having even one sarcastic, socially artless computer expert is barely tolerable. But on “24,” the Fox action serial, the collision of two acerbic, tech-savvy employees played by Janeane Garofalo and Mary Lynn Rajskub is a welcome development for viewers.

Monday night’s episode of “24” features the pairing up of sorts between Chloe O’Brian (Ms. Rajskub), the computer hacker who has long helped guide the hero Jack Bauer through his life-or-death adventures, and Janis Gold (Ms. Garofalo), an F.B.I. agent deeply suspicious of her new office mate Chloe.

It is a rivalry meant to leaven the often-grim, high-pressure thriller with humor. And it’s an inside joke for Ms. Rajskub and Ms. Garofalo, longtime pals whose careers often intersect.

“It was just a weird mixture of my goofy buddy and then, like, ‘Oh, God, it’s Jack Bauer,’ ” Ms. Rajskub said of the pairing in a telephone interview. “It’s so intense that it’s kind of crazy.”

When Ms. Rajskub (pronounced RICE-cub), a comedian and actor, joined the counterterrorism team of “24” in its third season, her character was designed to provide support to Bauer by hacking computers and providing him with escape routes. She also offered assistance to viewers by delivering crucial exposition as well as comic relief, often as a result of her tendency to say exactly what’s on her mind, no matter the situation. (Introduced to the F.B.I.’s computer system in Monday’s episode, Chloe tells an agent, “Whoever set your network up that way didn’t know what they were doing.” The agent sheepishly responds, “I set our network up that way.”)

Howard Gordon, an executive producer of “24,” said: “Chloe was the slightly out-of-sync person who was strangely competent but lacked certain social cues. She had a really unique charm that could be set against the deadpan urgency of the show.”

The plan for Season 7, Mr. Gordon said, was to discredit Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and his team, forcing them to work alongside their counterparts at the F.B.I. “It would be interesting to see someone who was like Mary Lynn in many ways, and who did the same thing as Chloe,” Mr. Gordon said. “What would happen if two competing and complementary characters were doing the same job?”

But when she was asked to join “24” in 2007, Ms. Garofalo, a former “West Wing” star and an unabashed liberal, had misgivings about the conservative politics of the series’s co-creator Joel Surnow as well as the show’s seemingly cavalier depictions of torture.

Nonetheless, Ms. Garofalo said in an interview, “being unemployed and being flattered that someone wanted to work with me outweighed my stance.” (Mr. Surnow left the show in 2008, though its trademark gunpoint interrogations have remained.)

Ms. Garofalo had an added incentive: she would be working with Ms. Rajskub, whom she has known from the standup comedy world for more than 15 years. The two often performed standup together (Ms. Garofalo said they shared equal billing; Ms. Rajskub said Ms. Garofalo was the headliner) and briefly overlapped on the HBO series “The Larry Sanders Show,” on which Ms. Rajskub became the fictional talk show’s talent booker when Ms. Garofalo’s character left that job.

At the time, Ms. Rajskub said, she was intimidated by Ms. Garofalo’s popularity and her performance style. “She’s very well read, very verbal, very outspoken,” Ms. Rajskub said. “I’m none of those things.” Her own comedy, she said, comes “from my insecurities, being uncomfortable and unsure what I’m going to say, and being swept along with things.”

On “24” that mixture of technical proficiency and social awkwardness has made Chloe one of the show’s most popular characters. (Ms. Rajskub resisted the idea that male viewers might be attracted to a computer geek with a willful attitude. “Are you asking me to dominate you?” she asked a reporter.)

When Ms. Garofalo joined the series, it was her turn to be Ms. Rajskub’s apprentice; Ms. Garofalo’s challenge, she said, was to create a character that was not only distinct from Chloe, but that would not be pigeonholed as one more irascible female sidekick.

She decided that Agent Gold would come from a place “where anxiety and irony collide,” she said. “She’s very self-aware. Whereas Mary Lynn doesn’t quite understand what impact she’s having on people.”

But their fateful face-off was delayed — along with the “24” season — for more than a year by the writers’ strike. During that time Ms. Rajskub learned she was pregnant; she gave birth in July to a son, Valentine. (“That was a surprise to everyone,” Ms. Garofalo said. “Probably her boyfriend most of all.”)

With the new season now under way, Ms. Rajskub and Ms. Garofalo said their alter egos would eventually develop a reluctant respect for each other as they search for a mole in the F.B.I.’s ranks.

“I don’t want to work with her,” Ms. Rajskub said of Ms. Garofalo’s character, “and I think everybody’s stupid and I’m better than everybody. You know, the usual, and I’m pretty much right.”

Playing ornery friends is not much of a stretch, Ms. Garofalo said; the real difficulty is pretending that the world’s fate rests in their hands.

“It’s hard to do dialogue like that, especially with someone you know in your social life, because the stakes are so ridiculous,” Ms. Garofalo said. “It’s very hard not to start laughing. Or I guess I should say, it’s very hard not to start laughing if you’re as immature as I am. ”

Jack is sitting there taking in the sunset on the mall, looking at the Washington monument, and here comes Tony! Jack there is going to be another attack, I need your help. I don't know what the target will be but it will be "High Value".

There was a lot in this episode that was a stretch to believe but fans of this show haven't let this bother them before.

However, this show usually tries to mislead with previews so you never know. So far so good on this season. Much better than last year.

We'll see. Though I seem to think running a taser through the neck of a pip squeek co-conspirator of a terrorist plot to invade the white house doesnt seem to be flip side of torturing the daughter of a president... As Taylor said during last episode, some things arent as black and white in terms of using extreme measures.

Larry Moss is the guy who doesn't think that there should be free parking jackpot money when you play Monopoly. I am getting sick of him.

He's playing Tony Almeda's role from the first season, by the time this thing wraps up he'll have seen the light and will be covering up for Jack's misdeeds.

Several running jumps, takedowns, missed swings with a tire iron I think, and eventually a screwdriver to the gut by Jack.

Quinn also told him that the weapons are already here, and Jack took his phone and saw a port location.

Not sure where it came back in, I switched to the other Fox station after about 10 seconds....

I was hoping Red was going to become a force for good in this year's series. Being the bureaucratic twit to a guy who sees the reality that Jack lives in and helps him find the connection between Starkwood and Juma....

One thought, when Red went to answer the door to let the cops in, what moron wouldn't check the peephole to see who's out there first? In most cases, Jack does the all clear before he lets anyone do something like that. Also, what's with the "NOOOOOOOOO" Jack does?

You mean you don't just automatically assume when someone says "Police!" they're the police? :D


Also, what's with the "NOOOOOOOOO" Jack does?

I'm assuming it's because he just realized that he
a) finally got the guy to listen to him and might actually help him solve the crisis,
b) realized that now he's going to lose all those documents, and
c) probably a little sliver of him though, crap, now who's going to vouch for me and show that I didn't kill Burnett and now Senator Foreman...

Thoughts on the last episode:

You gotta wonder what kinds of things are going to happen to get Jack through this season and next season (he's under contract for it) now that he's got Mad Cow disease...

That Seaton is a sneaky, sneaky guy...didn't see him doing the double turn...but you would think the government would put some kind of provision in the immunity agreement that if the information doesn't help them, the deal is null and void...

What a shock that when Jack's not there, things go badly...

I still don't like Janis, and I'm hoping her character either turns out to be a mole or goes away relatively soon...

I hope Tony got himself an immunity agreement as well now that he's in FBI custody...

I figure we'll be left at the end of the season with Jack's fate in doubt.

I was proud of my daughter. She called the Seaton double-cross and said "nobody will be in the warehouse". I was blindsided.

I laughed when Jack was shirtless and everyone was horrified. Like Quasimodo, "I'm hideous, don't cast your eyes upon me".

Jack wears white boxers? I figured him for a commando kind of guy.

I figure Olivia is up to no good. Either her slimy journalist boyfriend will twist her arm into something nefarious or maybe she is in cahoots with Hodges. She is bad news.

I'm hoping for a major twist, but I just don't see where there is room for one. Plot seems pretty straightforward.

I had the double-cross pegged pretty early on.

gm
03-31-2009, 07:30 PM
Yeah, in hindsight I think Seaton's double-cross was Hodges' idea, and they set Tony up while he was backed up against the chain-link fence. My thinking was "they can't be in this warehouse, this season has 8 more hours to go!"

(Jack can't possibly die of this malady, they're already signed up to do a season 8. Besides, Bauer is indestructible)

Moss and his 20 guys against 1500 mercenaries? Gotta love those odds. If I were them I'd take Seaton hostage, but they're "nice" FBI guys who won't think that fast

Good point re: Jack and the boxers, Roy. He never has an "accident" so who needs 'em?

Will President Taylor send in the carpet bombs? Stay tuned...

I felt after the episode was over that Jack and Renee didn't go for a reason. Either Larry and his boys are killed or more likely Jack and Renee to the rescue. They will have to use Chloe and we're back to Jack saving the day. BTW, why does anyone question Jack's perspective? Don't they know he's always right?

I'm also thinking that there's an antidote somewhere in Starkwood. You would think that Hodges would have had one made just in case he got it somehow, and I still have a feeling that the plan was to release this bioweapon and then pretend to be the "Knight in shining armor" with a cure and show that they do have a place in society (he was ranting about the work they did and then getting contracts pulled and subpeonas, etc.).

Very good thought. That would explain the motive for this whole escapade. It never did make sense what they were doing. Now it will be hard to save the day with the government knowing they are responsible for the bioweapon, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

She's only under contract for the finale? I would have expected to see her sooner because it looks like Jack's got limited time and the writers won't allow him to be useless for long. I guess they came up with a temporary solution to the problem by giving him drugs to over come the symptoms of the neuro agent. It's pretty obvious that Kim is the long term solution, so I'm curious what the twist will be.

I also made the comment to my wife, once Jonas said "you'll see" and with Tony being a little too eager to give himself up to the government he hates, "I wonder if he's really the bad guy behind all of this?"...

I'm assuming Kim will be in more of this and they didn't just bring her back for 5 minutes and a few tears...

I still think Tony is on the good guy side, but is trying to get at the heart of whatever this conspiracy against the gov't is that Hodges told the Prez about. I figured he had to do it to stay in cahoots with teh bad guys. I'm losing track of how many double-agent moves he's making though.

Either that or he's just plain bad and him and Jack will have a titanic duel of the gods eventually to determine emperor of the world.

The first time I watched it, I thought the black security guard was the one who tackled Tony from behind and caused him to drop the detonator. But after running it back (slow) it appeared to be the guard who was laying under the tanker who blind-sided Tony.

Then there's the blonde who visits Hodges in the holding cell...I'm suspecting the "multi-national cartell" slash "shadow government" angle, similar to the X-Files (but then, I'm always on the lookout for conspiracy theories...)

Baby is named Teri? Nice touch. I thought Kim went off with Chase. Who was the baby papa? I missed that.

I thought they cleaned up the Chase deal when Kim showed up with C Thomas Howell a few seasons back.

I'm still not convinced Tony is a bad guy. Why didn't he finish Jack off if at the end if he is?

Moss is definitely dead. I had my doubts, but they wouldnt' show him if he was alive. At least I don't think they would.

The big question for me is, what bit of patriotism or call to rally around the flag will cause Jack to change his mind about the experimental treatment? That's got to be coming soon.

Agree that Moss is dead. The chance to get revenge on Tony could be Jack's reason for getting treatment. I see this possibly playing into next season as well. Terrific season so far. Anybody see a return of Mandy at some point this season?

I'm going with Chuck Norris as the ultimate bad guy...where else would Tony learn his karate ability? Plus, he wants to become President of Texas, so that would fit right in with taking over the 24 universe...

did anyone notice that the bad conspiracy guy that the "lawyer" talked to, was the other coach from Remember the Titans?

He was also Harold Saint's right-hand man/gay dude in The Punisher (the one with Thomas Jane and Travolta)

And the reason Jack gets the treatment is going to be Kim and the granddaughter.

I've been pleasantly surprised with this season. I was very skeptical about the direction at the beginning of the season but twists have added some new life into this show.

I still can't get a read on Tony. He kills Moss but lets the Starkwood agent live when he uncuffed him from the storage tanks prior to blowing them up.

Maybe the people he now works with/for had some connection to Michelle's death so he's working alone to take them down.

I'm still not convinced that Tony is a bad guy here. Based on the show's history the good guys are always willing to make massive sacrifices to get the job done. The way I see it right now is that Tony is the only guy able to pinpoint the entire network. If that is true he would have had to do everything he has done to accomplish that end. He could have killed Jack but he just walked away. I've got a feeling this is a ploy to get in better with the man behind the man.

But the best part about the show is that I could be entirely wrong, and probably am! :)

For me the big question now is...will Jack "deal with Tony" during season 7, or will his vengeance "carry over" to season 8?

I suspect "getting back at Tony" will be the impetus to convince Jack he needs the stem cell treatment, but "maybe" there will be an antidote that Hodges will provide (for imunity and protection to his family, of course)

Why didn't Tony "finish Jack off" when he had the chance? Too risky, with all the FBI agents around. (He didn't want to compromise his "mission" by drawing even more attention to himself.) Based on the tease for next week, it doesn't take long for Jack to "come to" and inform Renee (etc) about Tony's betrayal

The poison pill passer looked like a blond Sarah Palin?...she also seems to have a "relationship" with Tony, based on the tease

I recall that when Tony first told his partner about blowing up the FBI agents, his partner reacted like he wasn't comfortable with the idea, and then Tony asked him if he had a problem with that. I gotta believe there's something more going on here.

Then again, I remember season 6 when there were no something mores going on anywhere at all.

The whole "we need to save Tony" plot is so not necessary. He is useless to this shadowy group now and in all reality, would be killed.

Where did these new operatives come from? This group just call up some folks with espionage backgrounds who have sympathies with a group who wants to kill thousands? "Hey, can you go to the airport? Just in case our plot is foiled, we happen to also know Jack Bauer's daughter was visiting, he flight was delayed and she will likely bump into you folks."

I mean, like bathed him. When that happened before, they stripped him down to his bare Jack parts in the middle of the highway and scrubbed him like Mike's Car Wash.

This time, he just said "OK, done" and walked out like nothing happened and started doing normal yelling Jack stuff. Not to mention little wisps of deadly gas exuding off of him in a large crowd of people. You'd think he'd at least change shirts or something.

Yep, that's my take too. I really had no sympathy for nor did I care about Olivia and I was like "lock her up and throw away the key, let's move on". Nail her skanky hide to the wall and move on.

Not a plot twist, but an interesting move to have the Muslim imam guy be Jack's confessor. A little humanity in the 24 world.

Jack ran and fought quite well, considering he'd had some spinal fluid removed.

I never did buy Agent Freckles emotional attachment to Jack, so I really found her adoption of his interrogation methods hard to accept.

IMO, the most disappointing part was the President's resolution of the White House drama. It was so weakly written. And I also didn't buy the President's husband siding with his daughter.

Overall, it was a thoroughly underwhelming finale. I was expecting a blockbuster ending. The surprise in the last hour was that there was no blockbuster. It was as if this episode was a merry-go-round that gradually coasted to a stop and let everyone off at the end.

I used to read up on 24 on teh intrawebs but I stopped doing that. At least for me, it's more fun to be surprised in real 24 time. After all, its just TV.

I tried, but my biggest problem was that I watched the first 6 seasons on DVD (didn't catch on to the tv show until season 6, and my son was born just after the start, so we missed a bunch and decided not to watch it until the dvd's came out) so I'm too impatient to wait until the next week :)

I didn't remember him dying, I think they left it as he was stabbed with an ambiguous ending...

Correct, however Agent Freckles referenced him, when talking about Hodges. I think she said "living like Charles Logan, on some ranch in Colorado".

Well then I guess less clothing is the answer :D


For almost every question.

Especially regarding our little Kim.

Maybe it was, but I just checked the 24wiki, yes there is one, and they list Renee. I believe it happened after Larry Moss died.

We have the same problem at my house. Watched the first 6 seasons in marathon fashion to catch up in time for this season to start in January and got thoroughly cheesed off the first few weeks when we had to wait 7 days instead of just popping in the next disc. While it definitely adds more excitement to the series watching on TV in real time, it's kind of annoying after having 6 seasons on demand.

Freddie Prinze Jr. as Jack Bauer Jr.?

Sources said Prinze is joining the cast of Fox's "24" as a regular, playing Davis Cole, a recently returned Marine who runs CTU Field Ops and wants to follow in Jack Bauer's (Kiefer Sutherland) footsteps.

On the real-time drama, whose upcoming eighth season started production Wednesday, Prinze joins fellow new cast additions Anil Kapoor, who plays a Middle East leader; Chris Diamantopoulos, as the president's new chief of staff; and John Boyd as a CTU systems analyst. All of them are regulars, while Jennifer Westfeldt has come aboard as a recurring, playing a a journalist.

Also cast as a recurring on the 20th TV/Imagine series is Nazneen Contractor as Kapoor's daughter.

Prinze, repped by ICM and Brillstein, recently co-starred on the ABC comedy pilot "No Heroics."

Just finished the past season. I thought it was a pretty good season. But then again I am hardly ever disappointed with 24. I loved the Tony storyline, mainly because he was my favorite character on the show. I also like how he isn't "dead" yet and could return.

Are they trying to kill this series?Kiefer's not signed neyond next season. If Fox wants to continue the show sans Kiefer, they'll need to have someone cued up to plug in for the lead. Maybe Prinze is that guy?

Personally, I'd rather see them tap another member of the Brat Pack. How about Judd Nelson or Andrew McCarthy? ;)

Per wikipedia
Maybe seen as a spoiler, more of a season set up



























[edit] Season 8
Main article: 24 (season 8)
Kiefer Sutherland will return for the 8th season,[29] which he revealed the starting timeline for as beginning very quickly after the end of season 7.[30] However, more recent information has described the timeline as further into the future, making Jack's granddaughter, Teri, old enough for meaningful dialogue. Cherry Jones, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Annie Wersching are the only main cast members from season 7 who will also be returning as main cast members in season 8. Elisha Cuthbert will once again appear as a "Special Guest Star" and Bob Gunton will be back as Ethan Kanin, but this time as a recurring role and with Kanin as Secretary of State. As for Carlos Bernard's role as Tony Almeida, the show's producers have not confirmed, nor denied, the fact that Bernard will appear in season 8. Additional cast members include Anil Kapoor (as a Middle Eastern leader named Omar Hassan), Jennifer Westfeldt (Kissing Jessica Stein) and John Boyd (The Notorious Bettie Page) who were confirmed on the day production was slated to begin.[31] Westfeldt will play journalist Meredith Reed, while Boyd will play CTU systems analyst Jonah Schwartz.

Footage from Season 8 that aired at Comic Con was leaked onto Youtube[1], showing plot line introduction and the new CTU.

Set 8 months after season 7, season 8 begins and ends at 4:00 PM, unfolding in New York City amidst the shadows of the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations where CTU has been upgraded and is run by the MBA-schooled Brian Hastings (Mykelti Williamson).[32] Cole Ortiz (Freddie Prinze Jr.), a former Marine who wants to follow in Jack Bauer’s footsteps, runs the division’s Field Operations. Expert data analyst Dana Walsh (Katee Sackhoff) collaborates with systems analyst Arlo Glass inside CTU. Rob Weiss serves as President Alison Taylor’s new chief of staff, and Meredith Reed is an ambitious journalist with ties to the unfolding situation. Jack Bauer is simply a man who wants to move on with his life and be with his daughter and granddaughter, but plans come to a halt when, once again, America needs his help.

Hi kids...

just a gentle request from one who likes to watch 24 in real time... please at least put in a spoilers warning and some white space so I don't read about what's going to happen.
