I am not sure I've ever went into an episode of "24" with more curiosity. The season is spiraling out of control, and like the Browns in game 13 this year, they badly need a "win" to salvage things. The premise looks promising, with Jack being captured by the Tricksy, Tricksy Ruskies...but will it deliver, or sink miserably into the abyss?
Making matters worse is the news that Kiefer Sutherland is having a surgical procedure, which will shut down production for a short time, and may restrict Kiefer's ability to do the action roles for a few weeks longer. Being that all that is left to shoot is six more episodes, I'm not getting a warm and fuzzy concerning the end of this season.
