24 Thread

Another Monday night, another new episode of "24" at 9 p.m. EDT.

First, though, on Prison Break, Michael will go after T-Bag tonight. Prison Break is every bit as unbelievable as "24," perhaps more so even, but it is so much fun. If you missed the first season, consider getting it on DVD. If you like "24," I would almost guarantee you will love Prison Break.

Now back to "24"... I always love Dave Barry's comments. Here are a couple of my favorites from last week's episode.

Right. CTU should be checking up on Morris's breath as opposed to FINDING THE FREAKING TERRORISTS.

A leak? At CTU?? WHAT ARE THE ODDS????

I am sick of the Morris sobriety watch storyline. There are terrorists and moles to worry about. Get off of his case and get busy saving the world. This is an especially disappointing development for Chloe's character. She is slipping back into that annoying state she was in back when she confronted Jack about his drug use a few seasons back, before she learned to kick terrorist butt. I want the old Chloe back. I mean the new old Chloe. The one we saw the last couple of seasons.

Don't miss the poll at the "24" site this week: "What can Jack do with floating rib fragments and internal bleeding in his chest?" Check the site for the poll choices. My vote is for "All of the above."

On a more serious note, Barry links to this real article about "Project Chloe."

Update: I almost forgot that Dancing with the Stars is on ABC tonight. Time to see if Billy Ray Cyrus can dance well enough (or charm fans) to save himself from elimination and whether or not Heather Mills can continue to hold onto her leg. My kids are watching this one.

But I love Morris! I prefer the new old Chloe, too. but I ike her concern for Morris.

Please, "24" gods, don't kill off Morris.

Lorie Byrd:

I agree. I love Morris, or Maurice, or however you spell it. I don't want them to kill him off. I want the other characters to get some perspective and lay off of him. He really shouldn't be working anyway. He is battling the guilt of having helped the terrorists arm the nukes. Forget falling off the wagon. There are many more reasons he should be taking the day off. I do love his character though and hope he sticks around.

Ha. He is almost as nutty in this role as he was when he played Jim Jones in that Jonestown movie when I was a kid.

Ok, is it just me or does Ricky's face look really really rough? Has he always looked like someone took a rake to his face and just hid it with layers of pancake or is this a recent (post NYPD Blue) development?

Powers' performance is remniscent of tour in Exrtreme Prejudice. What I wouldn't give for Nick Nolte to show up in a cowboy hat and say, "I catch you in DC, Noah, you're dead. Hear? You cross the Potomac, your ass is mine."

Yeah, Ricky definitely looks ragged, and it doesn't seem to be a recent thing.

Here's a pic of him from 2002.
