    I can't believe Fox still hasn't learned this lesson. They used to do it all the time with King of the Hill, which was annoying. But to do it with the season premiere of something as hyped as 24 when they know people Tivo it is really idiotic. Especially when they could have just had it get bumped about 3-4 minutes, but then they HAD to do the post game. Why not just schedule it to start at 8 instead and do a whole post game wrap up to fill the time?

    Here's a second one: Burn in Hell Fox!

    It did show that someone outside the CTU group and Palmer know that he was still alive.

    I messed up and mis-set my TIVO :( so that it didn't tape tonight's initial 2 episodes of "24," and several important people were counting on me. Might anyone on this list possibly have tonight's initial two episodes on CD/DVD that I can borrow/buy ASAP? I live in the DC area...and you can email me at Atanimir <at> yahoo <dot> com. Thanks much,

    Why not start at 9:00 eastern/8:00 Central? Because they don't own the 10:00 Eastern/9:00 Central hour, that's the local affiliate's time. They would've only been able to show one episode instead of two.

    Dropping the post game wouldve only bumped it up 3 minutes, not enough to change the fact that 24 would start late.

    The networks should just cut away from the game at the hour they scheduled to do so.

    I wish someone could/would sue the networks for false advertising every time this sort of thing happens. They should schedule their sports broadcasts realistically. And they should force major league sports to stick to a schedule, too. Real sports manage rigid schedules with no timeouts every 12 seconds for lazy athletes to regroup.

    Since I could care less about sports, I didn't even know that the football game was on fox before 24. Now I missed the last 5 minutes of 24... Thanks Fox

    Did anyone else think the president was snorting something just before the first call with CTU, 10 mins into the first episode?

    Both his hands were by his nose, one hands moves away like he's palming something, the other wipes his nose and he sniffs.

    No. Let's say the POTUS goes in for surgery. The VP would be president for a few hours.

    I was all set to watch 24 in HD tonight and bang, my mother calls and talks to me for 45 mins. Ended up watching my "Tivo backup." I *need* to get an HD recorder!!!! Ahhhhh!!!!

    Anyway, "Jack's Back!" and the show is as good as ever. I'm quite pleased with how it is going.

    A big welcome to David Fury and Manny Coto!!!! :) :) :)

    Both Chloe and Audrey look hot this season! They both must be getting their hair done at the same place (which trailer is that on the set? *wink*).

    Indeed, Kurt Cobain boy is going to be this season's Kim Bauer. He needs to visit the hair dresser of Chole and Audrey though.

    Sean Callery outdid himself on the musical score this evening. Terrific music! I especially enjoyed the "Crazy First Lady" bits. Nice!!!!!

    Oh, and the previous pic of Morton Downey, Jr....hilarious!!!!! He *does* look like dimwit President!

    Interesting to see the gay football player from "Queer As Folk" as an FBI agent. He looks like he lost weight.

    The show is definitely not perfect, and I'm sure we'll have some more nitpicks as the season goes on. But one thing is undeniable...."24" is some dang fine television.

    Not really, no... not unless either A) the president signs over the powers of office to the vice president, or B) a vote is collected and it is determined that the president is not capable of executing the duties of the office.

    Neither of which would likely happen if the president were indisposed for a "few hours."

    Do like I did and Google for "25th Amendment."

    I think I'm beginning to piece together a plausible scenario here (which means in 24 world, it's completely not true): Crazystan (can we call them that from now on?) terrorists somehow know Jack is still alive, but have Big Evil Plans. In order to bog him down and avoid him coming after them, they make CTU think he killed Palmer.

    Doesn't matter if witnesses eventually will give him an alibi, they just need to seed some doubt for a couple of hours for their Big Show.

    Is it me, or does this Kurt Cobain kid sound almost like Beeehhrroooozzz when he talks. He has the same nauseating gutteral/nerdy sound when he talks.

    Aside from missing the last 10 minutes I enjoyed it ... and, yes, it looks glorious on my SFA 8300HD PVR ... the controls on that beast suck but the 720p was gorgeous!

    Thanks for the summary of the last 10 minutes guys. Let's hope there is no damn footbal tomorrow night!

    ...Dale

    Don't forget about Michelle. She was looking extremely hot too!

    Alas, then she got even hotter, and now she's not so hot. :( :eek:

    I think the Edgar- Chloe- Whatshisface love triangle is going to be nauseating for the next 22 episodes.

    I don't think it is possible to describe how much I love this show.

    Jack is awesome!

    And I agree with whoever said that the best line was 'The only reason you're still conscious is that I don't want to carry you." And no way was that baddy making it to the hopsital.

    I could definitely do without the new chick and the dumb kind. And I'm not too thrilled to have Audrey back. But I really like Chloe. And is it just me, or did Edgar put on some weight?

    When watching the season 4 DVDs I decided that I like Bill Buchanan so I'm glad he's back in charge of CTU. He seems level-headed and smart but not afraid to give Jack a little rope.

    Are we supposed to know mysterious big bad guy from somewhere? I don't recognize him but I feel like I'm supposed to.

    I had relatives who relived that story every time Heidi aired, and it wasn't in a nice way.
