Blogcritics On 24 Day 4 – The Series

The two-hour finale to Fox’s 24 tonight promises to be a ripper with a nuclear warhead sent flying to an unknown eastern U.S. city by terrorists with Jack Bauer hot on its tail like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove. We, and primarily Jeff Kouba, have been following the sequential show is its fourth — and by far most commerically successful — season thus far, hour by hour:

24 Finale: Worst … Episode … Ever
“I Love You’s” don’t belong … A complete mess

24 Day 4, 4:00 AM – 5:00 AM
I remember all my life, raining down as cold as ice. Shadows of a man, a face through a window, crying in the night…. but enough about me. Let’s get to this week’s episode. Ray is leaving the house with golf…

More graphic violence. Yeah, sure, like I’m falling for that one again. I’m gonna go wake the kids and get ’em down here. Old Doc Besson continues to work on Jong. Is he really the guy they want working on Jong,…

24 Day 4, 2:00 AM – 3:00 AM
If Spock were to mindmeld with this episode, as he did with the Horta in TOS episode “The Devil in the Dark”, what would he say? Hmm, probably the same thing he said then, “Pain! Pain!” What’s the Trek tie in?…

I’ve figured it out. This show isn’t in the action-adventure genre, it’s horror!

Tonight’s 24, mid-show
Weak. The President should have died.

24 Day 4, 11:00 PM – 12:00 AM
There are certain forensic psychologists who can build up a profile of a person by reading what they write. In looking at 24 this season, even an amateur can tell that an insane person is writing this show. We get the…

24 Day 4, 10:00 PM – 11:00 PM
This show is becoming a cry for help. Please, if there are any professional psychologists reading this, contact Fox and help their writers in any way you can. Lives may be at stake. Tony starts us off by telling us “multiple…

24 – Episode 415 – “Day 4: 9:00PM-10:00PM”
So now we know what makes this fourth season of 24 different from the previous three installments: it’s not Jack Bauer’s really long, really bad day–it’s Audrey Raines’ really long, really bad day. In case you’ve lost track (or haven’t been…

You’ll notice that “how?” is the theme of this week’s review.

24 Day 4, 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Though this behemoth could crush me beneath its treads, with my briefcase and shopping bag I will stand in front of it and face it. If it turns, I will move to keep myself in front of it. For clearly,…

Islamic Secularism, “24”, and transformation
Fox’s hit show “24” took a giant leap into fair and balanced portrayals of Muslim characters in a well-directed episode this week, which featured two secular Muslims who aid Jack Bauer and his rival (romantic) to defend themselves against a…

24 Day 4, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
I think this must be the scenario. For Christmas, a teenage boy received a new EZ-Screenwriter software package. Because he’s new to the software, he doesn’t yet understand how to leverage all of its capabilities, so at first he sticks…

24 Day 4, 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
The episode begins with Operation Mop-up. Marwan managed to slip through the extremely tight security cordon CTU had put up around the Rockland Building. I wouldn’t have thought you could slip a knife through that security, but somehow Marwan managed…

24 Day 4, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Jack is either a psycho, or a sadist. It’s sad to see a once great man fall so far. He didn’t even bother trying to question Paul first, and give him a chance to explain himself. Nope, he went straight…

24 Day 4, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
It is a refreshing touch that this episode doesn’t begin with one of those time warps 24 is famous for. I mean, we start right off with Pa and Beiruts making their way into the basement at the hospital. We…

24 Day 4, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
This episode was an odd sort of deli sandwich, a few pieces of cold Smart between two slices of Stupid. As we start out, Curtis is inside talking to Driscoll about how to cover their heinies over the Marianne Affair. Another…

24 Day 4, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
I’m beginning to worry about El Presidente. I wonder if he is a psychotic airplane buff, and he ordered the Oval Office to be rebuilt and transformed into a copy of Air Force One. Because, he is *still* flying around…

24 Day 4, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
I’m starting to have that same feeling I had about 30 minutes into The Matrix Reloaded, when they were spending so much time in Zion, and seemingly forgetting all about what made the Matrix films so bewitching, the Matrix itself….

24 Day 4, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Jack begins picking off baddies one by one, outside the compound where Heller is being tried in the Terrorist World Court of Justice. I assume that silencers are part of the standard equipment CTU carries around in those SUVs. Otherwise,…

24 Day 4, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
As the episode begins, Jack is, well, jacked up against a police car. But, he has an out! He says, call CTU. So, the poor locals do, and find that yeah, never mind the laws broken, Jack is on official…

Finally! Alias and 24 Return!
Last June, when the upcoming television schedules were announced, you would not believe how disappointed I was to learn that two of my favorite shows were not going to have a new episode until January of 2005. Why? Why put…

24 Season 4 premiere episodes
This 24 show really gets on my nerves. They get on my very last nerve. This of course is why I’m so devoted. No other show ever has kept me on the figurative edge of my…

24 Day 4, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
It’s funny El Presidente isn’t clever enough to at least ask if Driscoll is just blowing smoke in response to his inquiris about how things are going. She blithely responds that CTU is following leads, blah blah, and he doesn’t seem to have…

24 Day 4, 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM
It seems like 24 months since the show was last on, but the show has made a welcome return to FOX. The late start means FOX can show an episode a week all the way to the end, without any…

TV Preview – 24 Season 4
The most interesting nugget in an otherwise forced column by Frank Rich attempting to argue that the War on Terror (i.e., the war against al-Qaeda) has become incidental in the shadow of the Iraq campaign is an interesting admission…

Sure, the action, the plot is all about manipulation. If recognized early you will enjoy the ride that much more. Tick…tick…tick…tick
