Last night's ep was a doozy but there is a small issue that I have to complain about. Last year, Jack's brother was totally controlling the
president. He did whatever Gray said. Now the president is not in custody, which will be explained ( I assume) but he is also somewhat in charge of
things here. He knows how to get ahold of gredenko and he knows far too much for a man who was nothing more than a puppet for the Bauer plan and he
should really be in prison.
I don't think Gray was in control so much last season. It was more of a case of Logan making a deal with the Bauer company to cause a war in the
middle east so they could justifiably steal the oil, but once it went wrong he was relying on Gray and co to get him out of the mess.
Now that he's not in that mess he's got no reason to be relying on other people. Let's not forget Logan talks a big game until in the middle of a
crisis, in which case he crumbles like a bitch!
I can't wait for Jack to just look at him the wrong way and see Logan go from smarmy to crying in the space of a second!
I hope he's not a big character this time around though. As great as the character and the actor that play him are, I invested so much of my energy
hating the guy last season, and it was such an exhausting relief when he was finally busted. I just couldn't stand having to go through all that
with him again.
I also read somewhere that Mia Kirschner has signed on for 6 episodes which means Mandy the hot hitgirl is back. For those that haven't seen the
previous 5 seasons, I think she makes an appearance each year butI could be mistaken.
That's good to hear!
My only concern so far this season is that my favourite character other than Jack, Chloe, has been made sort of normal. They've tried to make her
this sexy chick this time around when she was much better as a geeky, socially retarded cutey! At least she's still in it though, if anything
happened to her or Jack I'd stop watching immediately.
I also liked how Lennox turned out to be a decent guy as well! Everyone was moaning when this season started that it was too obvious he was a
turn-coat/bad guy, but it's turned out to be a nice ruse in the opposite direction for a change! Let's just hope he can save the day somehow, if
this president gets taken out as well I just don't think I'll be able to handle the tension anymore.
This season has been top notch as always so far though. Not quite as good as season 5 so far (the best one in my opinion), but that was going to be
impossible really. I regard season 5 as the Empire Strikes Back of television drama, it was just absolutely stellar! It was so grim yet so gripping.
The problem it created for this season was that all our beloved characters got taken out that season and it's hard to get emotionally attached to
any of the new ones this time around, because you know it's likely they're going to die! As said though Jack and Chloe are the untouchables for me,
and I stop tuning in the second either is gone.
I'm just so glad 24 is back though, showing the likes of Heroes and Lost how to actually pace an episodic show! The writers deserve so much credit,
the plotting for this show is just top notch every time. Not one episode ever feels like a "filler", which can't be said for either of those other
