Did You Know?


Even though David Palmer and Jack Bauer have had lots of conversations, Jack has only seen David Palmer face-to-face three times - twice in season 1 and one time in season 5, even though Palmer was already dead, when Jack was looking at Palmers body. See more »


Subnet Masks: When Jack checks Palmer's computer, the screen shows the subnet mask address identical to his IP address. Subnet mask addresses always start with the digit 255 at the beginning of the four digits (the exception being the subnet mask address Also subnet masks can only have the following numbers as well as 255 and 0: 192, 224, 240, 248, 252 and 254. Example: would be considered as a real subnet mask. See more »

Distraction and Attack
30 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Jack and Chloe are in LA and Jack has been able to access computer information with the help of the former President's brother, Wayne. He finds that he must go to an airport. At CTU, there is confusion. At least they are considering the possibility that Jack may be on the up and up. Since he has saved the nation four times, it seems he has earned some trust. This is flaw in the series, but it also sets up some great tension. Anyway, Jack is back and he is honed in. We still don't know what the grand plan is, but we know the President is clueless and he has a viper in his bosom.
