The Following Takes Place Between 3:00 P.M. And 4:00 P.M.

I’m not sure the previous format was working too well and I doubt anyone was actually reading it, so I present to you:

24 Things We Learned About 24 This Week:

  1. No one in the general public of Washington D.C. recognizes Dubaku.  You’d think his picture might have come up at least once on the news.
  2. A group of terrorists is able to hang out in the basement of a mini-mart without any suspicion. Even when that basement is holding the First Gentleman.
  3. Jack is able to sell a good story and convince the President of conspiracy within her cabinet in only minutes.
  4. Renee Walker is definitely on Jack’s side and she will try anything at least once. (note: call me!) Including holding someone hostage and threatening their baby. Apparently she “is a monster.” But she does seem to have regrets about what she’s done and is saddened for threatening the baby; ultimately she can’t handle the questionable morals of being a Jack Bauer style agent.
  5. For some reason Ethan Kanin is still trusted enough by the President to be present during and after it is revealed that someone in her inner circle is involved in the conspiracy. He’s also able to confirm the corruption almost instantly by sending agents to Samantha Ross’ house. Hmm
  6. Getting your finger cutoff with a steak knife hurts. A lot.  Put something in your mouth so you don’t bite off your tongue.
  7. President Taylor is a bit cold hearted and stubborn but damn if she isn’t ethical and fair as a leader. She’s got some balls of steel.
  8. Jack can convince anyone of going along with his plan.
  9. Agent Walker really trusts Agent Moss. And apparently he really trusts her.
  10. Sean is one skeptical, nosy little motherfucker and no one will pull a fast one on him.  Including the President.
  11. Sean’s little blonde friend, Erika, doesn’t believe in wearing bras. Meanwhile, Janeane Garofolo is not entirely clueless and not a huge fan of intra-office affairs/romance.
  12. It only takes 6 minutes to get out of the White House, get a car, and drive to the top of the National Mall (Jack & Agent Walker). Likewise, it only takes 6 minutes to get a Secret Service Agent’s phone records, leave the FBI and make it to the National Mall (Agent Moss).
  13. Jack is willing to do whatever it takes to get the information he needs, including threatening family members (this is not new).  Agent Walker reluctantly is as well (new). Agent Moss is not and has no balls (not new). Agent Moss: “the rules are what make us better” Jack: “not today”
  14. There’s always a nosy disabled sister with secret information on the sketchy boyfriend
  15. Bill has no problem devising what appears to be a solid plan with a man (Kanin) who very could be one of the inside conspirators.
  16. Jack is possibly a Thomas Brother, a badass offensive driver, and has impeccable taste in cars. Nice choice on stealing the new Cadillac CTS-V there.
  17. Anyone will give in when you put a gun to their baby’s head. Except for Keyser Soze, that guy will kill the baby himself.
  18. Jack picked up some sweet wrestling moves (maybe he saw The Wrestler?) and can flip someone (Agent Vossler) and stab them with their own knife. Agent Moss is not so impressed with Jack’s sweet defensive knife fighting moves. Does not understand the connotation of “murder.”
  19. Tim Meadows makes a mean look-alike for Prime Minister Matobo.
  20. Hos before Bros for Dubaku
  21. Dubaku’s henchmen don’t like being played and are in possession of a giant rocket launcher.  President Taylor was apparently unwilling to share one of her sweet attack proof Cadillacs with Tim Meadows, whom is unable to stop a rocket launcher with his bare hands.
  22. Jack carries around a compact mirror and Agent Walker would lose in a game of hide-n-seek.
  23. In one of the saddest moments in 24 history, multiple cases of beer were caught in a deadly crossfire.  Moment of silence please…..Thank you
  24. Jack learned a sweet sliding across the floor on his butt and shooting his gun move. Still needs a bit of refinement though because the intended target was still able to get a shot off on his own intended victim (First Gentleman Taylor).

Questions remaining:

  1. Will First Gentleman Taylor live?
  2. Who is the mole inside the FBI?
  3. Who is involved in the conspiracy within President Taylor’s inner circle?
  4. Where does the story go from here?
  5. When will Jack finally utter the famous words, “Damnit [insert name here], we’re running out of time!?”

I have one more for “Questions Remaining”. Where the heck is Jon Voight?

Other than exploring who the mole is and how deep the conspiracy goes, I can’t guess where the rest of the season is going.

3. DougOLis - Thursday, February 12, 2009

Good point Ben, I guess he does need to make another appearance at sometime. I suppose that’s kind of tied to the conspiracy in the White House but we’ve had no mention of him so far.

Yeah Matt, this is often the point in the season where the plot kind of meanders around without my point. I hope the writers actually thought of something with the extended time off and we’ll get a surprise this season though.
