    I'm SURE the writers didn't have this kind of forethought, but:

    They said the weapon was a prion. My wife (who is a chemical engineer, I have no idea what I'm talking about, and am only repeating what she told me) said that prions are very very small. Much smaller than say, viruses. It's possible such gear doesn't exist.

    So the beginning was filmed in fall of 2007--and they decided to have a woman president. Wonder where that idea came from. ;)

    Yup, she's temporary, although she's recommending Rick Berman to be appointed so he can screw over the country the same way he flushed Star Trek down the drain.

    There's some interesting stuff on Prions on Wikipedia, but it doesn't mention anything about protective gear. It does look like the writers read the page though when writing the script. :p

    What's weird is that when the bad guys took the container back from Jack they were wearing protective gear. So whether the gear exists or not in the real world, the writers though to have the bad guys wear it, but not the good guys. :rolleyes:

    There are still eight hours left, so this is no where near the traditional 24 endgame. There have to be one or two serious plot twists still to come before the end.

    I predict that Jack deliberatley exposes Jon Voight to the toxin, requiring him to reveal the antidote that they have until then denied exists. This is how Jack to survives.

    Yes, it was quite YUMMY. Both in the "that's totally hawt" way and in the "oh you poor baby you've been hurt and I need to help lick your wounds" way.


    I did find it pretty funny that in the midst of a bio weapons threat we had to deal with the paperwork for immunity.

    They've done a pretty good job of keeping this season action packed. All the threats are immediate and they just come one right after the other. Looking at the season as a whole it is silly to have so many threats, but from week to week it probably helps keep a more casual viewer interested.

    I will be really unhappy if Jack does not survive this day.

    Oh, and I agree with everything that's been said about the White House stuff. Stupid and dumb and can't wait to see Aaron take that ***** down.

    I just find it funny that they had a security breach and terrorist attack at the White House and the President is still conducting business there two hours later like it was the annual Easter egg hunt. There's probably still dead bodies on the floor and all the gore that goes along with it. Shouldn't the Secret Service have gotten her the hell out of there?

    Whoever the President is next season, if at any point there's even the remotest scintilla of a doubt in his/her mindthat Jack is a true American hero, I'm going to throw shoe at the tv.

    I guess that's code for "there's no more money in the budget for new sets". :)

    But really, two airplanes collided over Washington, DC, the White House was attacked and there's a third, imminent bio-weapon attack looming over the Washington area. The President would be safer in Camden, New Jersey at 3 a.m. wearing a suit made out of $1,000 bills and lottery tickets than remaining in the White House. I'd think Presidential safety on a day of multiple terrorist attacks would be one of those things a President can't say "No" to, at least in these circumstances.

    Ok, I'll shut up about this now. :)
