It's Monday, and we all know what that means: a new hour of "24". Here is the description of tonight's episode, from Yahoo:
"The administration copes with a compromising situation; Jack stops at nothing to protect the country from an international incident."
Well, that doesn't tell us a lot. Only that I've been hearing "international incident" a lot on the show, whereas it was first an "international situation".
At the end of last week's episode, CTU was under siege by mercenaries hired by the Chinese government. Jack has been captured, and Josh Bauer has been apprehended by the mercs to take back to Phillip Bauer. Phillip Bauer wants Josh in exchange for fixing the override switch to the Russian nuclear weapon that Cheng now is in possession of. Why Phillip couldn't have just waited an hour or so for Josh to be released from CTU, we'll probably never know. Doyle and his men are out in the field, so they probably won't be able to save CTU. Lisa Miller is carrying on her X-rated romp under the prying eyes of Lennox. I don't know how people can say "24" jumped the shark, it's still must-watch TV, LOL.
Remember, "24" on Fox tonight at 9. Tune in, for the good of the country, of course.
