Agent Freckles is doing a 'bang' up job. I'm a died in the wool fan, but the writers jumped the shark with the 'Starbuck' new character. One of my nephew's has to take a polygraph every two years with a Fed Agency. There is no way in Hades she could get away with it.
Yes and yes.

And I can't believe CTU fell for the old "decoy car" trick; I mean, didn't they have another asset they could task to watch the building :)

You know, I recorded the whole season to date and have only watched part of the episode where Freckles come out of the shower...

I guess that makes me shallow.

Justified is pretty good, though...

This week: If an EMP bomb went off inside CTU, how come Starbuck's cell phone still works?
Oh, that one is easy. She knew it was coming, so she had it powered down and in a Faraday cage.
And, I'll certainly accept that a state intelligence agency can create a new identity for her that can withstand a routine background check for security clearance. But how did her former boyfriend track her down?

NYPD Blue did shower exits better.
I had to make a Faraday cage once for a customer whose hi freq arc start was glitching his induction furnace. We used chicken wire with a deeply buried copper earth ground; not purty, but it was effective.

And yes, NYPD Blue did indeed do the shower scenes right, as well as a lot of other things...

Well, I'm a bit behind; Jack just appropriated the helo, but I can't see him saving the day and retiring to the AZ backcountry.

I'm going out on a limb, but I think he's going to smoke Freckle's killer, expose the Rooskies, save the peace process and somehow give the Prez plausible denial while at the same time turning her away from the dark side and showing her the error of her ways.

I also think it's possible that Dana gets loose and tries to make amends for her evildoing.

And I'm pretty sure Logan is going to get his.

But Jack ain't walking away from this one...

Did everyone get to see Jack do in those 4 or 5 bad guys in the office? Our TV was blacked out for a bit, but then it came back on and showed 3 or 4 lying in pools of blood. Another was impaled to the floor with some sort of spear. Perhaps it was too much for our dainty senses, out here.
I believe that the actual havoc wreaking was left to the imagination.

And the "spear" was actually a fireplace implement...

I quite liked the finale, even though I'll won't be changing my vocation to soothsayer anytime in the near future.

With the current Prez about to be the ex Prez, Jack's going to be pretty much on his own with nobody to cover his six. Of course, everyone on the planet is going to be after his head... shocker.

My wife thought Jack was moving pretty good for a guy with 2 GSW's and the accompanying blood loss he incurred.

I just looked at her and said: "It's Jack Bauer."

I believe he was using an ACR for his aborted sniper shot, but I'd still like to know what type of weapon he used to breach Logan's Secret Service ride...

About how many would I need to watch to get caught up?
I believe there are 12 so far.

Me, I'd just watch the one I have and decide if I wanted to watch the previous eps, although I don't think Raylan shot anyone this week.

The backstory isn't something you can't figure out in pretty short order, there's probably a synopsis on the FX website.

At any rate, I expect we'll be going into repeat mode shortly.
