Time to go undercover

Author: Max_cinefilo89 from Italy
17 February 2008

In the previous episode, Jack Bauer killed a man and sawed his head off for the sake of credibility. Here, he breaks another guy's ankle for the same reason. Not really the kind of stuff you see on an average telly show, huh?

The reason Jack is behaving like that is he's going undercover to gain information from a man named Joseph Wald, the only lead CTU has in the case of the nuclear threat. Problem is, Jack's the agent who sent Wald to prison back in the day, so he needs assets to show he is on the "right" side and not to be messed with. Hence the head and ankle. In a less dangerous neighborhood, on the other hand, Kim Bauer is trying to keep a little girl she is babysitting away from said infant's potentially abusive father, and Kate Warner's suspicions about her future brother-in-law get worse after learning he might be involved with a known terrorist.

After a pitch-perfect start, the second season moves forward in an even darker fashion: all of a sudden, even your own home is no longer a safe haven. Of course, the domestic violence thread is nothing more but an excuse to get Kim into trouble, but with such care for the subplot and its connection to the main arc (a tie that isn't that strong to begin with), why complain? It even allows Elisha Cuthbert to develop a more mature side of her character compared to the rebellious teenager she was in Day 1.

That's nothing compared to the old man, though: watching Jack maintain his cover at all costs is a riveting experience, especially in the final minutes, which indicate events will turn incredibly ugly come the following hour. Few shows provide that kind of thrill on such a regular basis.

An exceptionally good show ...

Author: KellyforPresident from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A brilliantly conceived and original idea (the real time formatting), but not without continuity problems. It must be very difficult to maintain the time line without errors. I have been watching DVDs of Season 1 and 2 and eventually finding myself obsessed with catching these mistakes. (e.g. In Season Two, Jack shaves off his beard at just before 9:00 a.m., but by 10:00 a.m., he has a five-o'clock shadow. This beard comes and goes for the next 24 hours. Just one of several obvious ones.) However, the suspense, the plot-twists and the acting are worth the distraction. The total unbelievability of EVERYTHING makes it that much more enjoyable. It is a completely addictive show.

Jack Kills And Goes Undercover

Author: Desertman84 from United States
9 September 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Jack has a federal witness brought into CTU, whose case against Joseph Wald can put Wald away for life. Jack kills him and cuts his head off before leaving to meet Joseph Wald's gang. Megan and Kim continue to run from the abusive Gary. Meanwhile, Kate grows continually more suspicious about Reza Naiyeer, her soon-to-be brother-in-law. Palmer must prevent a snooping journalist from breaking the threat to the public and starting a panic. Jack goes deep undercover, offering confirmation of the witness's death as friendly gesture in order to buy the gang's trust. Jack then learns that Wald's gang is planning to bomb CTU.

In summary,here the events that happened during that hour:

1.George Mason advises CTU of the nuclear bomb threat and tries to escape the blast radius.

2.President David Palmer advises Eric Rayburn on the need to avoid mass hysteria by addressing the media.

3.Kate Warner speaks with Ralph Burton about Reza's terrorist connections.

4.Jack Bauer gets briefed before going undercover with Eddie Grant. He learns of the upcoming attack on CTU.

5.Kim Bauer and Megan Matheson flee the Matheson household. Megan is missing from her hiding place after an altercation between Kim and Gary Matheson.

Obviously,it was a whole new day for Jack as he begins his new mission by killing and going undercover.While Jack's daughter,Megan seems to be having an adventure of hew own that looks headed for disaster.
