Each season gets more implausible and unrealistic, but I am on the edge of my fucking seat regardless.
Guy who plays Logan is a great actor. Kiefer is awesome as Bauer, and I love Chloe.

Sutherland backs idea of `24' for the big screenBy Daniel Fienberg, Zap2itcomPublished January 20, 2006LOS ANGELES -- Since 2001, Kiefer Sutherland's dedicated CTU agent Jack Bauer has dedicated his life to saving America and its designated leaders on Fox's Emmy-winning drama "24." Might Jack's next challenge be figuring out how to protect the domestic box office from rumors of a slump?Speaking with reporters at the semi-annual Television Critics Association press tour, Sutherland reiterated his long-expressed enthusiasm for bringing "24" to the big screen at some point, perhaps in the not-too-distant future."It's certainly something that I have expressed an incredible amount of interest in doing," Sutherland says. "It is something that (producers) Joel (Surnow) and Howard (Gordon) and Bob (Cochran) and -- we've all talked about. One of the real difficulties, and Joel's expressed it in a number of interviews, is that any time they got really close to having a great idea for having a film, we needed it for Episode 18, so there it went."The fifth season of "24" began Sunday night, and viewers flocked to Fox to find out what national calamity would force Jack to resurface after faking his own death at the end of last season's chaotic day of work. Preliminary ratings had "24" drawing a record 16.2 million viewers, many of whom are still buzzing over the shocking opening minutes, which featured the deaths of a pair of beloved supporting characters.Casualties aside, though, the only currently indispensable character for a feature would be Sutherland's Jack, who has protected the world from bombs, viruses and other myriad catastrophes."I love playing the character, and it's something I care an awful lot about," Sutherland says.One major problem with a possible "24" feature is Jack Bauer's tendency to require precisely 1,440 minutes to save the world from the brink of disaster. Barring a Warhol-esque marathon, a theatrical film might have to be closer to 120 minutes. Would a single day in Jack's life be edited down to two hours? Would Jack just be put on a tighter deadline for a big screen adventure?"There are some real-time aspects that are certainly presenting challenges," says Sutherland, chuckling.

I don't think anything new or shocking happens this episode. Jacks gets caught (again)...or maybe it's just caught up in the middle of the ruskietrash's plot...Logan pussies out by listening to the wrong people and gives a thumbs up to allowing the release of one cannister...which Jack will ignore, pissing off Logan until it turns out that Jack succeeds...but loses track of Ivan once again. Kim won't appear until next Monday. And I think Tony is out of it until he makes a "special appearance" in the last four episodes, just like Palmer did last year.

My guess is that his admission he lost it will continue to accelerate Samwise Gamgee's circling of the drain, and Jack will have to kill several people, including the hobbit's sister and strung out boyfriend to obtain it. OR ... they sell it off for drug $$$ to some bad guy that will wreak havoc with it.

Or will the nerve gas once targeted at Moscow come into play in the states? Or will some other, unrelated, not yet revealed bad guy seize control of this nerve gas and set in motion something truly evil with it?
In a stunning revelation, bad guy turned guilt ridden Nathanson revealed just before dying that there is another mole. Who is it? The chip he gave Bauer on his deathbed was written with DOD software. Is Audrey the mole? Thats my guess. Her or maybe her old man the former Sec of Defense. Mike Novick? Wayne Palmer? Those are also possibilities.

And how bout Bauer taking out four dudes with machine guns AND a helicopter with a hand gun?
Still no Almaida, still no Kim. Logan is a chickenshit. And I love Buchanan as an actor an a character.

This 2 hour show this Monday I am thinking should get this thing rolling for the second half of the show. Logan is such a pussy, someone at some point is going to take over for him. And, I am calling it now: Kim bites the big one this season.
