24 meets Oz
17 August 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Moving forward at a breakneck pace, 24 keeps raising the stakes every passing minute, and it just gets better and better.

With the virus threat still not taken care of, President Palmer insists on proceeding with the debate anyway, knowing he has to be careful regarding the potential scandal involving his current girlfriend. Meanwhile, the CTU begins to close in on Kyle Singer, and the situation gets worse when Chloe finds proof of Jack's heroin habit. All of that, however, is child's play compared to what's going on at the prison: having staged a riot to get Ramon out, Jack has to face the side effects when he and his "accomplice" are captured by other inmates and forced to endure all kinds of physical and emotional pain in a desperate battle to survive.

To keep it simple, the main section of the episode is like a softened version of HBO's prison show Oz: the violence is, for obvious reasons, toned down, but the intensity of tone is untouched. The first season of Oz ended with a rather brutal riot, and the 24 rendition of the template serves the purpose of increasing the dramatic tension with surgical precision, promising more surprises in episodes to come. Additionally, in retrospect the break-out scenario may have served as inspiration for Fox's other thriller hit, Prison Break, and THAT can only be a good thing, right?
