24




"The only reason you're still conscious is because I don't want to carry you."





There are so many notable quotables that it's hard to choose. But that's my favorite and it dropped early last season.

I still find it strange though that promos hyping this upcoming season are hinting that Kiefer's character finally gets whacked. Especially when Jack is clearly indomitable...and when Sutherland has signed on for three additional years at the every day low, low price of $40 million.

If you're not already a devotee, I'd suggest you check out tonight's season premier. It's really entertaining television and actually does meet the hype that is heaped upon it - that is, if you don't mind suspending disbelief in acknowledging "satellite uplinks" can solve any earthly problem and that torture is a legitimate interrogation tactic.

My roommate was long a 24 skeptic, and remained one all throughout the premier, right up to the point where Jack tore out someone's jugular with is teeth.

"THIS IS THE BEST SHOW ON TELEVISION!" she screamed.

Haha. Tremendous.

Since that initial bang though, the writers clearly have portrayed Jack as a man wrestling with demons. I get that he was only released from China "yesterday." But, come on, he's only killed two people today!
