Just as Jack's plane is about to land on the freeway, a series of white stripes can be seen on the road. These appear to be runway touchdown markers, not something normally seen on freeways. See more »


President Charles Logan: [after agent Pierce is beaten up by Logan's men, Logan offers to allow Pierce to remain a Secret Service agent elsewhere if he keeps his mouth shut] "... Is my offer acceptable to you?"
Aaron Pierce: [Pierce, tied to a chair] "There is nothing that you have said or done that is acceptable to me in the least. You're a traitor to this country and a disgrace to your office. And it's my duty to see that you're brought to justice for what you've done. Is there anything else, Charles?"

You're a world-class actor. I would have expected nothing else.
31 March 2013 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Season 5 has been one great hour after another. The 21st hour, 3:00 A.M. to 4:00 A.M., proved to be not only the season's highlight, but my favorite episode of the entire series. Now, the highest rated episode according to TV.com is an earlier episode where CTU was attacked by terrorists with the Sentox nerve gas. People loved that episode mostly because a friend of Chloe's died. I personally don't care much about that guy, so the episode wasn't significant for me. President Charles Logan, on the other hand, is one of my two favorite characters on the show (only behind Bill Buchanan). This hour is his absolute shining moment.

Basically, in this hour, he prepares to shoot himself in the head. Yes, you read that right, the President of the United States is about to commit suicide. Where else do you get to see such an outrageous story, other than on 24? But this is not why the episode is so brilliant. It's all in the actor's performance. He really, really could act. His facial expressions were amazing, as he sat there in his office, quietly, thinking about everything. What does a man think about when he's about to die in ten minutes? Deep stuff. It's deep, man. And the actor really pulled it off.

Once again, Graem/Graham didn't disappoint. He calmly, but authoritatively, talks to the President over the phone, and basically advises him to kill himself. This man has got some serious balls, and the actor conveyed that very well.
