The President?!?!

Post by Digital Puppy » Tue Apr 04, 2006 12:53 am

Jeez...another great episode...didn't think the president had it in him to be a bad dude. No wonder he didn't call back the motorcade when his wife was in trouble. :shock:

Cool to see Palmer avenging his brother's death - with extreeme prejedice!

How many more episodes to go??

No wonder I got confused. :p

I watched parts of Season 1 late on Sunday nights which got me hooked on watching Season 2 which I'm on ep17 and now I'm watching Season 5 only starting two weeks ago. Er, nerve gas on this one, nuke on other one. :rolleyes: You know mixing up these Seasons adds a certain element to the show. :shock: :D

Yeah I didn't want to start halfway through last season without knowing what happened before. Just before this season started some guys and I watched every season, we did 2 episodes twice a week. Now watching it with commercials and so long between episodes it is harder to figure out what is going to happen next.
I watch with BigBlockMatt and we were damn sure the VP wasn't the guy, because they made it way to obvious. I loved that they had Palmer "the Lesser" joining in the fun. However he can't top Jack and his knife kills!

All right so President Logan is in bed with Henderson. I can accept that fact. I, however have a problem with the way the character has done a 180 so quickly. He went from stuttering stammering fool telling other people to make decisions for him to a douche bag with a backbone. Did I miss the scene where he grew a set of balls? His character has been a whiny D-bag, since he was the VP, they can't just change the character now that he is "bad". [/rant]

Anyway it was still a good episode! Wayne Palmers eyes were looking evil red last night though.

Did I mention that Aaron Pierce is hardcore?!

I enjoyed the episode.

kinda liked the whole bank thing.
pierce is great
logon i hate even more

somethings that dont really make sense though. why would the presidents aid guy from a while back kill himself??? if the president was on his side.... doesnt totally add up to me.



Some good news though, I have heard that keifer is on for another 3 "days" of 24. good times

Actually, this part made more sense to me now. The president's aid HAD to kill himself in order to avoid interrogation and possibly giving up the president.

Maybe the pres. had him killed and made to look like a suicide!!

Hmmm....I'm thinking the aid had NO IDEA that it was ultimately the president pulling the strings. I bet he just knew of Henderson and since it spiralled out of control, he took his own life.

BTW, you just knew that the Banker was going to die when he figured out that was Logan's voice on the tape...too many witnesses.

Does anyone think that Mrs. Logan's aide and daughter are still alive?? :shock:

I loved the last line.

"You what that means. We have to take down the President." - well, something like that.

I can't wait for Secratary Heller to bring it to the President! Heller is so badass. I can't imagine Rumsfeld using an AK and killing terrorists (last season), but this guy does it and is still professional enough to make a very convincing Secretary. I hope he kicks Logans teeth in!

So how hardcore do you need to be to fly a plane from the luggage compartment, by yanking on random wires? I love that Jack probably has the schematics from every type of plane memorized just in case he finds himself in these type situations.

The series is great (as always) and I love it when Turtle (Mike Novick) is a Snapping Turtle! He such a great character even though he has pissed me off in seasons passed. A very realistic character though nonetheless!
