The action really helps
12 May 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

There are two memorable scenes in this episode. One, big man Curtis Manning trying to explain how Jack got away "He blindsided me, and took my car"; that line kills me). The next is a face-off between Jack and a helicopter (chopper goes down in smoke).

But overall, this is by-the-numbers "24"; Jack's out in the field bustin' heads and someone messing up the works at CTU (Sean Astin, doing his best with a weak role). Meanwhile, the president's demanding answers. It really is down to formula here, but some clever editing helps, especially when dealing with I.T. department drama.
