TV Round-Up: 24
Day Six: 3 - 4 p.m.
You know, there are just times when things don't make a whole heck of a lot of sense on this show. Usually I can forgive these because in terms of the amount of time that has passed in the character's lives it's only been a few minutes.

But then you get into glaring things like we've had the past few weeks and these things start to add up.

So, who is the mastermind behind all these plots and the plot from last season? It seems as if this changes from hour to hour. It was Graem, now it's Phillip Bauer and next week it could, possibly be Logan. I think the writers are working too hard to have this all tie together and to make it have some personal connection to Jack.

And if Phillip Bauer is so hell-bent on not having anyone find out his connection to the day's events and cleaning up his own mess--to the point he kills one son, has another marked for death and kidnaps his own grandson--why does he let Jack live and run off at the end? Of course, we all knew that Jack couldn't die (since Milo is in no way prepared to be the bad-ass field agent that Jack is), but couldn't there have been a less cliched way out of this. Jack offered it to Phillip with the promise of immunity. And you can't tell me Jack couldn't pick up the phone, call in a few favors from President Palmer and make that happen. Hell, the guy just issued a blanket pardon to the known head of a terrorist cell. It seems that he could be pursuaded to help out Jack. And again, Jack has sacrified a lot to help the Palmer family and this country.

So now we've brought Logan back into the mix. And let me thank anyone who writes up a commentary on the episode each week and includes info from the promo about it. Way to ruin that little twist for me, though it wasn't that huge a shock to begin with. Hopefully Logan coming into things will do something because so far, this season is really spinning the wheels.

And Logan's being not in prison brings up some interesting questions, some of which I hope we'll get answers to next week.

Meanwhile, I have to ask--how creepy weird was it when Jack was helping Marilyn get into the bullet-proof vest? And all those weird moments where he'd touch her face and such. Will there be a smackdown for Jack when Audrey inevitably returns later this year? And have we all forgotten about Teri Bauer, Jack's wife who was killed to end day one?

I will admit I almost lost it when Jack proclaimed Milo's wound "not that severe." Was it just me or did anyone else hear "It's only a flesh wound" run through their mind? That Milo--he takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I guess there must be something in the water at CTU that makes guys act all macho. I'm thinking if I was shot in the arm or tortured with a drill, I might take a few hours off or at least some painkillers. But not Morris and Milo who are stiched up and back to work in under ten minutes. Damn, those doctors at CTU are good.

Of course, Morris is having some other issues and could fall off the wagon. I actually found this plot a bit more reasonable than I thought I would, though how it is every person at CTU has some sort of personal drama like this can be a bit of a stretch. Is there not one relatively well-adjusted person who works there?

And over in Washington, Tom Lennox has a change of heart, which leads to a butt-kicking by Chad Loew. First of all, how stupid was Lennox to not let Chad Lowe get out of earshot or to check and be sure he was gone before making the call? Second of all, will the Secret Service guy not think something's up or does Tom makes these kinds of calls all the time so it's nothing new from the wacky guy who works for the president? Finally, I have to wonder just how they're going to smuggle in a bomb to the Presidential bunker....but then again this is 24.

On a side-note: So, Marilyn didn't stay long in the stairwell, hugging her son did she. Because she might have seen Phillip Bauer running by and stopped him. Or maybe it wasn't really Phillip Bauer that James Cromwell was playing but actually Zephram Cochrane and he beamed away from the roof-top.

Oh and who carries an extra PDA around to leave for people on a rooftop like that? Or was that Jack's that he took and then left. Maybe I missed that because I was trying too hard to figure out who was up to what and why this week.

But at least Logan's back. This could kick-start things.

Man, it seems like I say that every week...if I predict it enough, eventually it has to come true. Doesn't it?
