Cut Jack Some Slack
22 May 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Poor Jack Bauer (Keifer Sutherland); he can't win.

I don't know if this is typical for "24," as this is my first year of watching this show, but it seems this guy is always in trouble, especially when he does the daring-and-correct thing to do. Now, in addition to the interrogation over the drug charges, he's in trouble for shooting Nina Myers. Unbelievable! What is wrong with these people at the C.T.U? They seem to be screwing up more and more as the episodes, going from cool and efficient people to very flawed and undependable, and unprofessional (not following orders, talking back to the boss, breaking rules all the time). Most of these people would be fired, if this was real life. Of course, since it's television, most of them are young and attractive. Where are the gray- haired guys or fat women?

The beginning of this episode is the first time I have been annoyed at this show because, even though others screw up or don't follow orders - Jack gets the blame for everything. It gets a little frustrating.

Then we see nothing but liars: the two women covering up Milliken's death and the President's brother, covering for one of those women.

Meanwhile, the C.T.U. team has a lead, through a bank transaction overseas, that might track them down to Amador and his buyers of the virus. The latter now have the serum.

From there, the action kicks in and it's the usual tense and sometimes brutal show that it has been for most of the season, saving this from being the humdrum episode of the year.

The two very interesting revelations in this episode are that (1) this is a not high-profile plan to kills millions and (2) according to Amador, the person who now possesses the virus knows Jack very well. Who could that be? Meanwhile, they know something is up at a hotel in downtown L.A.
