TV Round-Up: 24
Day Six, 2 - 3 a.m.
My mind can barely begin to wrap itself around the multiple suspensions of disbelief required for the latest hour of 24....but here we go.

So, the Chinese had planned out EVERY possible scenario, up to and including the chip being bad and having to carry on a full-out assualt on CTU?!? Man, those guys think of everything! Seriously, why would the Chinese have such a huge stockpile of weapons and ammo lying around on the off chance they had to take out a U.S. governmental agency? It just doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense, other than the big pile of stuff clues Mike Doyle in to the fact that something is up.

And was I the only one who called that CTU was pursuing a dead-end when they stormed the warehouse? So, did they realize the warehouse was comprimised and move on or did they plant false information into Audrey to mislead CTU? Either way, these guys are one step ahead of everyone. Or so it would seem.

I think a large part of this is since it would strain crediblity to free Jack and have him go after the Chinese, the writers felt we had to bring the battle to Jack. Which if they'd given Jack five more minutes and another ammo clip, he could have taken out the entire Chinese assault team. Don't the Chinese know you send at least ten squads of men if you want to take over a facility with Jack Bauer on site? Did they miss that day in evil villain training school?

And you could just see poor Milo putting on his best red-shirt the minute he had his heart to heart with Nadia. I've been lurking in the background, glaring these past few hours...so it's time for me to do something both stupid and heroic. I guess since we lost Edgar last year, we had to copy that moment again this year. Only problem--as an audience, we cared about Edgar. I couldn't have cared less that Milo died and it was so telegraphed that you saw it coming a mile away. And then, it turns out to be a fairly pointless death....one done more for shock value. Milo is killed for pretending to be head of CTU and then the Chinese find out Nadia is in charge and....um....wait...don't kill her? This make no sense to me. Nor does it make any sense to kill the head of CTU when she's needed five minutes later to deflect Doyle's questions.

Also to file under things that don't make sense--Phillip Bauer's re-surfacing and his interest in his grandson. Let us not forget that a few hours ago, Phillip is holding the grandson at gunpoint, threatening to kill him. And now...wait, he is suddenly interested in him. Why? Oh please dear heavens, I can see this headed toward the inevitable he is really Jack's son revelation in the final hours of the season. Unless the kid is the mole and then I will totally love this show again.

But the show is working awfully hard to have us think that the kid is Jack's son again.

And boy does Marilyn Bauer have bad timing....gee, Jack, you just lost the love of you life again so I was wondering--wanna grab some coffee later? Jack, I will totally be there for you if you need me. Bring over the gun vest.

Why, why, why did we have to go back there?

And if we never see any more of the post-break-up drama of Chloe and Morris it will be too soon.

Thing is--this hour had a lot of elements that COULD have added up to a good episode (well, except Marilyn). Problem was it never really added up to a good hour. I haven't even got into the attempts to fool Daniel Jackson into downloading false spy information to the Russians. At least those scenes were supposed to be awkward.....

And is it just me or does Tom Lennox seem a bit pervy, sitting there in the van watching Invasion lady and Daniel Jackson hook up?

Which is a shame because Tom Lennox has been really good the past few weeks. I did like Daniels' continued anger and shame on this and his desire to keep the circle small. I have a feeling that is not going to happen.

Three hours left in day six...where will it all end? I have no idea, but I've got a bad feeling we'll get some huge Jack vs Phillip showdown, the kid will end up being Jack's and somehow Wayne Palmer will magically wake-up.

It's been that kind of day....
