Here's The Plan
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm glad Jack explained what was going on to his girlfriend because the technological gibberish is too much for my feeble brain at times, so a short summary of the what the terrorists are doing put it all together. In a nutshell, they have an "override device" which maintains heat levels in the reactors of nuclear power plants and with this "override" they can melt down all 104 plants in the U.S.. If the plants melt down, millions of lives will be lost in the surrounding areas and a disaster of unparalleled magnitude will exist.

In this episode, we get more drama, some of it soapy such as Erin's daughter, but most of it has the Ariz family melting down, not the reactors! Two of the three are betraying "the cause," the teen kid who has been shaky throughout and now his mother. I wonder - in real life - if the father ("Navi," played by Nestor Serrano) would have just shot these two at the first sign of trouble. Actually, a more realistic look would be that this family never would have been in this situation because the father would have known the other two members of his family couldn't handle the assignment. He lives with his wife and son and would have known them better than what's shown here. That part of the story lacks credibility, as does the C.T.U. which is always having leaks and traitors. Whoever screens the personnel in that high-security outfit should be shot themselves!

Anyway, the drama continues despite a great effort by one of the CTU computer nerds: Edgar, a big fat guy with a lisp and a New York City accent so thick you can cut it with a knife. However, Louis Lombardi, who plays him, is a good actor and his role in here is one of the best. Too bad Choloe was canned; she and Edgar would have always made an interesting pair of people at verbal odds with each other.

This show mainly features annoying people so I might as well mention the Secretary of Defense's son "Richard," whom I am sure we have not seen the last of, unfortunately.

At the end, we see a former CTU guy come back and help out Jack. That was great to see! Also good is how this show manipulates your emotions. You cannot watch this show without becoming emotionally involved, either really rooting for some people and/or despising others.
