    Ok, IMDB lists a guest appearance from Sabrina Lloyd in the first episode as "Kathy Rourke." I don't remember seeing her, but I'm notoriously bad with faces - anyone remember seeing her at all?

    Very good action-filled first 2 hours. Maybe there's hope this season won't be a running joke.

    Good catch. Under the 25th amendment, the vice president becomes acting president until the president is able to certify that he is able to resume the office.

    We can only assume that either A) this dork is still acting president, or B) the president died offscreen.

    I was wondering the same thing. I would have recognized her if I saw her (loved her on Sliders and Sports Night).

    That was also the only episode she's listed in.

    I don't remember a Kathy Rourke and I can almost guarantee you that if Sabrina Lloyd graced my screen, I would have noticed. :)

    On the HR10-250 the recording info screen about the episode will have a "Change recording options" entry that'll let you adjust the stop time. I presume all the TiVo units let you do the same.

    That was one of the greatest season premiers I've seen in a long time. It was the shortest 2 hrs ever. What a great show.

    A few comments.

    First... Fun. Always nice to have 24 back!

    2. Palmer. I handed my wife a note before the show started and told her to hold onto it. When he got killed, I told her to open it and it said "RIP Pres. Palmer." :)

    3. Agreed with a poster earlier... when I saw that Michelle was a special guest star, I knew she was a goner too.

    4. Tony... how many seasons does he have to get nearly fatally wounded right at the start? He's now done it twice. And BECAUSE he was listed as a special guest star all last season, I kept expecting him to die. Glad he wasn't. No one "low talks" like he does.

    5. Walt. He was a jerk last season too, right? Didn't he and Mike clash about advising the President during the Embassy thing? And I think HE was the one who set in motion the order to have Jack killed. Can anyone who watched the Season Four DVD's confirm (or repudiate) this?

    6. New Bad guy: Mr Bluetooth. Why do all the bad guys always have a bank of monitors? And how long until we find out that he's actually located in yet another abandoned CTU room about five feet from Bill Buchanan's office or something? :)

    7. And I can't believe I'm saying this but.... good to have Wayne back.

    Anyway... a fun two hours!

    Oh, last thing. Best line: "The only reason you're conscious right now is that I don't feel like carrying you."

    Jack's back!

    What a great show.... been watching since Season 2 and I just love it... so far this season is starting off incredibly promising.



    And I'm mad that someone beat me to posting that showing the Allstate commercial with Dennis Haysburt was VERY bad product placement.. rather tasteless I say, and I wonder why FOX even approved of that....

    I didn't mind it. He's been their spokeperson for years now, and I think most people can distinguish between the character he's playing on 24, and his role as paid spokesperson for an insurance company.

    How was it tasteless? Haysbert isn't dead, only his character on the show is dead.

    I wouldn't call it tasteless, but I would call it jarring.

    Yes, I can tell the difference between the actor and the role, but there's that whole "suspension of disbelief" thing that audiances need to engage in and the Allstate spot was a bit of a splash of cold water, you know?

    And if any show requires a suspension of disbelief, it's 24! :D

    More tasteless than... last season when they said "You're in good hands, Mr. President" during an actual episode???

    The President from last season was in a plane that got shot down and resulted in the death of his son and a coma for who knows how long. Maybe he woke up and said "Uh uh, I'm not going back in there" and I wouldn't blame him.

    No one has mentioned Chloe's lines at the beginning: "Get out of my bed." And there was another good one also, something about it being a big mistake, or maybe there was a funnier one than that, but I was loving it. Jack, greatest American super hero, and Chloe, misfit computer genius, together again!

    Here's how I know I've been watching too much 24:

    I just started watching tonight's "West Wing" episode, and it opens with CJ and Danny at a restaurant. The waitress comes over and asks, "would you like to hear the specials" and as she's about to tell them the specials, I suddenly feel this wave of apprehension and dread come over me and I think that the waitress is about to catch a sniper round between the eyes before she can get a chance to reveal what the specials are going to be.

    And then Danny will of course scream "Damn it!" :D

    Hey, look, it's Kim Jr! How wrong is it for me to be rooting for the bad guys to take him out? ;)

    Damn, I've missed this show. I think the first twenty minutes can be summed up as, "But they can't do that!" At least Tony's ok.

    Now I can see bad guys trying to frame Jack for all the bad stuff but how successful could that strategy be considering he has a solid alibi? I'm sure the mom/son and the guy handing out the work assignments could pretty much verify that Jack wasn't in LA when Palmer was shot, incriminating security video or not.

    I guess the better question is - after having seen the first two episodes, WHAT did the "prequel" included on the DVD have to do with ANYTHING? (Rhetorical question.)

    Having seen the prequel, I was kind of hoping that they would've really changed things up, actually had the series take place in a different city... have it in Chicago this year, which would've let us have a whole new set of agents in the Chicago field office of CTU, plus they could've gotten some people over from Los Angeles in a couple hours without stretching believability... or just had them do everything via videophone/telephone with the LA CTU agents.

    24 is one of the reasons i got TiVo. Which is good because tomarrow night i am working till 9.

    How does the HD version of 24 look. i am trying to convince the rents to get HD. I am moving out in about 5 months anyway so i might just get my own HD set then.
