Almost Time For 24

Prison Break starts in less than an hour here on the East Coast, followed by "24" at 9 p.m. EST.

Last week on "24" we saw an attempt on the life of President Palmer and watched Chloe annoy the heck out of Maurice over his drinking (gosh, Chloe, he spit it out already). Last week's episode was, in my opinion, a snooze fest until the final few minutes. Hopefully this week's episode will be a little more exciting. Yet to make an appearance -- Ricky Schroeder, Martha Logan and Secret Service agent Aaron.

I am a really big fan of Prison Break, and last week's episode was exciting as usual. The previews make this week's episode look pretty exciting, as well. Feel free to use this comment thread to discuss either show.

Lorie Byrd:

I am so glad the hanging in Prison Break was unsuccessful. That just seemed stupid to me that he would trust that lying creep to take care of his family if he had died. As if he would keep up his end of the bargain.

I just wonder now if the agent knew the guy would never be successful and the attempted suicide is part of a bigger plan.

Lorie Byrd:

That is the case for both shows really.

You're right. Prison Break seems like it has a tighter plot, though. Sometimes 24 feels like it's made up as they go along.

Rats, I missed the preview!... (Below threshold)

Rats, I missed the preview! Sounds like next week will be an improvement.

24 and other programs with ... (Below threshold)

24 and other programs with some violent content actually face a serious future censorship threat from a little known FCC report that strongly recommends that all violent programming before 10pm on broadcast TV be regulated or banned by Congress.

Since FOX only airs between 8-10 on weekdays, this would force programs like 24 into a new 10pm time slot which would bump local programming such as early news, or else force programs like 24 off broadcast TV onto a sister cable station like FX or even off the air entirely.

The V Chip, a content based ratings system, have both been added due to both the FCC and Congress, but neither seems content, and more layers of government regulation are likely in the near future that will likely impact programs with some violent content that air before 10pm. The very popular 24 is always held up as a prime example by the antibroadcast violence crusaders in the FCC and Congress.

I skip all that spoiler stuff, since I'll watch Season 6 when it comes out on DVD.

Let me recommend "The Departed" as a great flick, though. A bit long, but it keeps moving.

Jack's got blood on his lips, did he eat the counsul's finger?

I believe the consul got the cigar cutter from Bill Clinton. lolol

Don Kay:

New to 24 - find it very odd but can't stop watching.
Anyone happen to notice that one of the admin staff is the warden from Shawshank Redemption. Is he a new character. First time I saw him was last night.
Chloe makes me crazy. One dimensional expressions on her face make me cringe.
