David Palmer: [Over the phone] CTU tells me you got something from Lee?

Chinese Causing Problems For C.T.U.
14 November 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Much of this episode - up to the last 4-5 minutes- is low-key, behind-the-scenes dealing as the C.T.U. tries to cover their butt from the Chinese. The latter have a guy from C.T.U. on their videotape hours earlier when their embassy was broken into a terrorist-suspect abducted. The problem was made 100 times worse when their consul was shot and killed....although he was shot by "friendly fire." Nonetheless, a huge international incident could take place and the U.S., of course, wants to avoid that. We see a Chinese investigator, of sort, at the C.T.U. trying to get them to admit they were behind this and, despite denials, they have it figured out. Big problems loom. Nonetheless, the whole thing is taking up valuable time because "Marwan" is set to fire a nuclear missile sometime in the next two hours.

I wonder if other people notice how often in this show - every week - the cameras close in on someone's face and that person has some sort of weird look. They frown (Chloe is the champion of that) or look suspicious, worried, jealous, apprehensive, angry, nervous.....whatever....it's always going on, for all the episodes.
