This week's episode was the "Let's Give Kiefer Sutherland a Break and Have Him Sit Around For An Hour Episode". He probably has it in his contract that he gets a Jack Bauer lite episode so he can get some rest for a week.
Well, he kind of got that in the first episode of the season.

It's more like this episode was the episode where Jack sits and hones his energy until he's given the requisite carte blanche before going full-Bauer until the deed is done.

.... Okay, that may sound a bit dirtier than intended.

Finally got around to watching the three episodes I was behind on. You had to guess that the house was the wrong one. We're only in hour five of twelve.

I wonder if Chloe will manage to get to a shower within Day 9. Poor Mary Lynn looks a bit of a mess with that Gothy makeup.
Yeah, the hair and clothing is okay but the gothy look isn't entirely working for her.
I dare say that's kind of the whole point, no? I mean given what we now know about why she's with this crowd.

I thought they were going to misdirect them to the house that Chloe was in. When they said "estate", I thought that's what they called project type buildings in the UK.
You're not wrong, but what you're thinking of are council estates as opposed to a country estate.

They need to put Jack in the field with Kate and let the blonde duo start filling bodybags. You know it's going to happen. Let's just get to it, yeah? The cocktease with showing Jack's mile-long hit list from past seasons is driving me crazy.

Right now, I'm cooling my heels waiting for everyone else to pull their head out of their ass and realize that I'm Jack Fucking Bauer and I know what the hell I'm doing.

The following takes place between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM.

Events sorta take place in real time.

@Aldo:
Oh, you're in for a ride. Seasons 1 and 2 are the ones that never disappoint at ANY time.
Season3 and 4 manage to give you quite the entertainment as well.
Season 5 might be a little hard to swallow, but the following seasons 6-8 are downright downers - and not in an entertaining or anything positive way...

My memory grows dim but 2-3-5 were the best, 1-4-7 were good, 6-8 were enh. Honestly I barely remember the last two seasons...

Re: 24: Live Another Day. Discussion Thread. (Spoilers)

I'd say that by and large the show has had a pretty steady declining level of quality as the stakes were upped, and the show took itself less and less seriously. But that last season was a pretty sharp spike. Sort of like looking at Al Gore's CO2 chart where things wiggle and squiggle up and down a bit and then in the last century or so it spikes up.

Because that 8th season of 24 was just PAINFUL, I've not even re-watched it on DVD yet, but I will as I go through the series on DVD this next week or so.

And while the show's quality may have '"declined" over the seasons I'd say only slightly (other than season 8 and *maybe* 6) even at it's worst (aside from season 8) the show was still pretty darn fun and entertaining to watch. And, hell, there's even a *touch* of something to enjoy in 8. It's still just very, very, painful.

To Aldo I'd say watch through the whole series, even season 8. It's still a fun and enjoyable show all around it just never seemed to reattain the "spark" those first 2 or 3 seasons had.

Would it REALLY be spoiler to say "yet ANOTHER traitor"?!?!?!?!

I wish instead of a traitor, it'd simply be someone just trying to cover some incompetence
