A definite improvement
16 February 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Episode 8 of 24 thankfully moves the plot forward a little faster this week.

No matter how many times you've seen Jack Bauer in the same situation, it's ALWAYS good fun to see him in them anyway, because you just know Bauer-ness will ensue. And it does. Jack's having a tough day as usual but he's GOT to be getting worn out from two torture sessions in less than six hours plus a stab wound in the gut! This guy is able to take a direct fist in the face and not show an ounce of injury! I guess that's just Jack Bauer...

All the plot lines moved a strong step forward I think - except perhaps for Hassan. Dana's story wasn't so awful and in fact was a little interesting as we see Arlo and Cole being pulled into her secrets. All the elements are now in place for a showdown between 'Jenny' and Kevin next week (at least hopefully). I'm sorry but I can't see this connecting in any way to the main story like others have suggested - it's just too different and completely unrelated.

While this episode was entertaining and definitely a step up from the previous one, it still felt predictable at times, and if not unpredictable then unsurprising. In a lot of ways, it felt like the episode simply ran its course, as though it wrote itself, rather than feeling very original. It was amusing to see how Jack's torture scene mirrored that of Season 2 and the end scene with Cole discovering the empty truck mirroring the CTU team at the shipping container not finding the Sentox in Season 5. Raise your hand if you guessed the rods wouldn't be in the truck...

One last thing is that I found the product placement in this episode hilarious and unbearable at the same time. Never have I noticed it this blatantly until now. Jack essentially shows the audience what his awesome phone can do! He can scroll pictures! He can flip pages with his thumb! And Dana has the exact same phone!

Thanks to Bazhaev's son, we should look forward to more of Jack doing his thing in search of the rods, as well as an increase in the pace. I'm not one of those that think 24 should be action and action only. I'm all for drama, intrigue and suspense...when its given to us! This episode used all the right ingredients but just not in a very original way. I'm hoping Renee will be released (or maybe 'unleashed'?) from CTU at some point to give Jack a hand mutilating people!
