Did You Know?


When the airliner is cleared to descend from 28,000 to 7,000 feet en route JFK, you see a clip of the pilot pushing the throttles forward which increases thrust. To descend, a pilot would not increase thrust, rather they would push the yoke forward and reduce power by pulling back on the throttles. See more »


Jack Bauer: I am more than willing to be judged by the people you claim to represent. I will let them decide what price I should pay. But please do not sit up there with that smug look on your face and expect me to regret the decisions I have made. Because, sir, the truth is...
Jack Bauer: I don't.

Meet the new show, same as the old
22 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Premiere episode's as bogged down by setup as much as any other, but then again, things are also as shaken up as they've ever been. D.C. setting (hey, they finally got out of L.A.), a madame president in the White House, and CTU discredited and dissolved. An effective repudiation of the show's flair for torture if ever there was one. But the FBI standing in for CTU means different faces for essentially the same jobs. The best thing about this episode is Annie Wersching (Agent Freckles) who's a good counterpart for Jack.

What's frustrating about this is the demonizing of Jack for his tendencies toward aggressive interrogation. The FBI look down on him, as does a Senate subcommittee (led by Kurtwood Smith, thus completing the "RoboCop" homage started in season 5) . . . yet they need him to fix this mess in the allotted time.

The other misfire is Tony Almeida as the bad guy (in full goatee, just to belabor the point). This robs his death of its emotional punch and reeks of desperation to come up with a credible threat.
