Trivia

Up to this point, Fox had been showing repeats of each episode on Friday evenings at 9:00 P.M. in an effort to allow viewers to catch up on missed programs. Fox decided to stop the re-runs due to bad ratings, though they continued to rebroadcast each week's episode on their cable outlet, F-X. See more »

"That's right, we're watching you."
8 December 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The first five episodes of Day 1, no matter how brilliant (and believe me, they are), can now be considered a warm-up: this sixth hour is when things start turning in a more complex, suspenseful and occasionally shocking direction.

Following the discovery of a corpse in Greg Penticoff's car, Jack has it sent to CTU for identification, whereas he, having convinced Mason he is innocent, goes off to the hospital where his wife and Alan York are still monitoring the fate of Alan's daughter Janet. Alas, he barely manages to enter the building before he receives a phone call from Ira Gaines, the man who is holding Kim prisoner and now controls all of Jack's moves. Simultaneously, David Palmer confronts his family about the incriminating news and faces a shocking truth.

Previously, the real-time technique alone gave a sort of "I'm watching you" impression; now, with the introduction of an actual watchman, tensions and complexities are brought to a whole new level. The real attraction of this episode, however, is Penny Johnson's character: as I saw Season 2 first, I already knew Sherry Palmer was a manipulative, untrustworthy woman, but seeing her unveil her darker side for the first time still provides me with a genuine thrill. That, and the truly imaginative twist at the end of the hour - one of the show's finest cliffhangers.
