Looks like I was right about the "parole officer" too. Maybe she'll be smart and figure a way to scratch him off the worry list in all the confusion but....
Always good to see Stephen Root, one of the better character actors of our day.

JImmy james back to the rescue, now if he could only find that Mr Peabodies way-back-machine he was always looking for and get these writers some help.
Or maybe he'll burn down the building and everything in it, if he doesn't get his red Swingline back! :lol:

And we found out he was probably a good guy, and was punching way over his weight in skill, but didn't know all of what he was investigating unfortunately (like we didn't) plus the background thing got a big explanation. Heck of a twist.

Apparently, after May, Jack won't be back...

At least on the small screen.
It sounds like they are going for an unconventional ending.

It has always been one of the best acted shows on TV. Sad to see it go, it really dominated the decade in so many ways. I wonder how the movie will go?

"Shattered Glass" was very well written so we will see.

Forgot to mention last week: Those two guys with Jack and Keanu Reeves Jr. might as well have been wearing red Star Fleet shirts.

This week: If an EMP bomb went off inside CTU, how come Starbuck's cell phone still works?

By the end of tonight's show, I was losing interest in the whole thing. I might not even finish the season.

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...

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...

Oh my yes. I still have fantasies about Sipowitz's blonde hottie getting out of the shower. How did they ever get away with that on network TV?

Nixon's back--tan, rested, and ready.

Jack gets some.

And Chloe's large and in charge.

Except for that little unpleasantness near the end, it was the BEST EPISODE EVER!

(Are they going to kill off everyone in this final season? If so, I hope that ugly Hillary-lookalike "madame president" is high on the list.)

I'm annoyed. Renee is dead and Dana isn't?

On the plus side, for the first time that I can recall, the person running CTU has good instincts.
Next week from the previews it looks like the bad guys have decided Dana/Jennifer is inconvenient, her only hope could be Bauer.

Yeah Bauer is going to go off now, that's for sure. Amazing ep. all that Snake said plus Mrs. IRK President doing the Corazon Aquino/Benazir Bhutto thing. (There is a bit of a resemblance there to Bhutto or is it just me?)

I kind of like Cherry Jones, I see the Hillary reference, interesting that it was Obama that ended up elected instead. I like Jones' character a bit more than Hillary. I also hope that Ms. Wersching finds a role on a nice series or even movies down the road, she's earned it. Great acting these past two seasons.

(PS anyone here ever see the South Park riff on 24 called The Snuke? )

Have you ever seen a better F-U look on network TV than the one Jack gave the Prezznit tonight? :shock:

Yah, we discussed it here a couple years ago. Run a search, I just re-read it recently so it's still here. :wink:
