My grade for episode 1

My grade for episode 2
Must one create a blog to grade the episodes??
Not at all, my blog has been around for a while. Just wanted to share.

Hi everybody!! :waves:

24 is ONNNNNNNNNNNNNN!! (Well sort of, so far it's a little slow on the uptake.)

Ok, I'm officially confused. I coulda sworn that the guy who was murdered/killed himself was a FRIEND of HRC's son and NOT her son. But now, it appears that he indeed was her son and the hot lingerie model/girlfriend has some part in what happened. What did I miss? Do I need to go back and watch that tedious part again from November?

Tony is alive, even though we saw him zipped up into a body bag. I'm not too concerned about that, but I'm hoping they bring back Edgar. I'm convinced that even though Tony is unshaven and trying to look like Marwan, he hasn't turned. He's really doing an underground investigation and before long he'll be working with Jack.

I miss CTU and I really miss Los Angeles. I forget, it wasn't totally blown up was it? I know I miss Chloe and Bill Buchanan. Agent Garofalo did a pretty good job on the computer, and she admits she has a sense of humor but she's not Chloe. Chloe would have had those coordinates before Agent Whathisname even asked for them. But Chloe wouldn't have told Agent Whatshisname because she would know that Jack needed cover, at least she would have stalled for awhile. 

I just LOVED the dual shooting action by Agent Walker and Jack. What coordination! I really hope she can make it through the entire 24 hours alive because she's GOOD!

What will tonight's episode bring? Can't wait to find out!

Oh one final thought, never EVER EVER talk on the cell phone when driving!

ETA: Please PLEASE 24 writers, don't bring back Kim. Let her live her own life in obscurity!

Excellent grading on the events Ken. I think we see the making of a female Jack Bauer, I was waiting for her to pick up a pen but the using the ventilator was an excellent idea.

I also agree with your grading for the subplot with the First Spouse. Meeting in the open and handing over documents? Never a good idea. Going to the computer room alone, not a good idea either but it worked out for Agent Garofalo this time.

Will the documents make it back to the WH? Iffy. Jack and Tony working together, excellent! I knew he hadn't turned bad. I'm undecided about Agent Garofalo's computer skills but she's growing on me, she defeated Chloe's hack for a little while.

Why do people call me on the phone during 24? I do not know! (Even worse, why do I answer!)   :umn:

I think next week Agent Walker will be brought into CTU Underground. While she'll still not trust Jack & Tony fully, they'll get her out of her predicament.

I agree Ken, she'll be saved.

Wednesday, I caught a little preview during AI, it looks like Jack and possibly Bill Buchanan are in the Oval Office talking to Madame President. I've searched the 24 site but can't find this particular clip, darn it!  (:;)

Your grade is right...  :tup:

You mention the van, a big yellow one at that! How do they get these things! And YELLOW??

About the First Man, Gentleman spouse.  Rule #1 on 24, NEVER believe your agent is on your side when he says you need to go to someone's apartment. BAD sign. I'm thinking Samantha will somehow foil the plot if indeed she is the Kim of this season. But if the President's spouse doesn't make it, that's fine with me. 

Hillinger's role, blah. If he's got something with the hot blond, what was the deal of getting his wife's plane down faster? Makes no sense. Filler, that's what it is, merely filler...

I missed the silent clock, I better go look again. What DOES that mean....

LOL at Puddin.. it's not THAT bad...

The silent clock was used at the end of S1 when Jack's wife was killed by Nina and usually in death scenes, but this was a surprise. At my old hangout, the 24 Community, we used to debate the silent clock. Some thought Tony should have gotten one when he "died" in S5. I guess the producers hand it out when they feel necessary.

Silent clockFrom Wiki 24

The silent clock from the end of Day 6

A silent clock is a rare event on 24 that features a clock with no beeping at the end of a scene or episode. It is used to punctuate highly emotional scenes, often surrounding the death of a significant character.

Because of often drastically varying circumstances, as well as the infrequency of the silent clock, there does not appear to be many patterns for use of the device. Some silent clocks are accompanied by noises in the foreground or background, while others have faint music underneath.

To date, only one silent clock has occurred before the end of an episode.

The effect of the silent clock could be accentuated by the split screen that is put in place immediately prior, depending on the circumstances. Upon the death of Teri Bauer, the screen was split between the scene of Jack cradling Teri's body alongside black and white clips from Day 1 12:00am-1:00am. Immediately preceding Ryan Chappelle's death, there was no split screen, possibly to create the expectation that the episode was not quite over and he would somehow escape, until the appearance of the silent clock, confirming that he had indeed died. By contrast, there was also no split screen leading to the final moments of Day 6 5:00am-6:00am, but instead of heightening tension, this omission was presumably to preserve the tenderness of the farewell between Jack and Audrey.

The silent clock following David Palmer's assassination attempt at the end of Day 2 and the silent clock during Day 7 as Renee is being buried alive were used to create tension and highlight the seriousness of the situation. Both clocks are accompanied by the sound of breathing.

The silent clock has been used eight times; once per season in Seasons 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7, once in 24: Redemption twice in Season 2, and not at all in Season 4.

I don't think she's dead. That's why I wrote that there would be a lot of debate on the 24 message boards. I believe you're going to see Agent Walker next week. In fact, I think Jack and Tony are going to give her some room to escape.

I don't think she is either, they want us to suffer and worry. She's the only bright spot so far in what has been a boring season. The FBI didn't even get a perimeter set up around the safe house, have they ever heard of calling the PD for backup?  :knuckles:

Now I have a horrible headache, I didn't even THINK about the First Whatever being blamed for 2 deaths!

Glad you have a good DVR Ken, ours decided to skip the part where Samantha Roth met her maker, we had rewound,  hit play and it went right past that and straight to a commercial, but allowed us to watch every excruciating moment of the F.W. going over the balcony.  (:;)

Bill, Jack and Chloe, excellent team. Tony, dunno yet. I'm not convinced Emerson is dead.  :umn: 
Looks like Walker joins the amazing four next week.

Absolutely best so far!  :tup:

Except for the First Whatever...  :groan:

(And Tony... I'm still not convinced that Emerson was really REALLY dead...)

Bill's Tastykakes truck is amazing. It has all types of WiFi, a whole rack of women's clothing, secure cell phones, and I'm sure a secret gambling casino that Tony uses to play poker. :lol:
