Hour 4 to 5 pm: The return of the prodigious president

ATTENTION: Some spoilers ahead, if you live in a place where season 6 of 24 is not broadcasted this is the wrong post to read.

Our friend Logan comes back to 24, trying to redeem himself, I guess, and Jack had no other than believe him to get a good lead about Kredenko's whereabouts. Seems he will take the chance to pay a visit to his ex-wife, the way he saw the portrait said it all. For a moment I thought he would commit suicide after losing his job at he white house.

Dwayne finally grew up some gonads. Standing to whichever ambassador, telling him no cooperation will get his country a free visit from the guys in the Navy, not precisely singing the song that made he Village People famous.

Now the $64.000 question is: Why Jack's father flee the scene all of the sudden?. He killed Graem but spared Jack's life?. Phillips wasn't going to get anything from the kidnapping business, seems he realized of that and 'pulled a Houdini'. I know this won't be he last time we hear from Phillip, wait for a situation where the cavalry is needed, Phillip's militia will come out to save the day.

Morris seems to be having one heck of a bad hair day, with the jumping off the wagon and getting annoyed by Morris, Buchanan Milo and Nadia, he will need a long vacation after this day is over, is either that or going postal at CTU.

Hour 3 to 4 pm: Family is all you've got

ATTENTION: Some spoilers ahead, if you live in a place where season 6 of 24 is not broadcasted this is the wrong post to read.

Seems like Phillip understood what Jack told him, there is no empire left, only Josh, Marylin and Jack. In Phillip's words: "no life is worth what I've built...", but there are so many loopholes that will let his empire stay afloat, it doesn't matter how guilty he is, so, why crying over the small stuff?.

Milo sure did took one for the team. Playing a field agent going commando is a bad move when all you know is working with computers, he should at least got to get a vest before stepping out of CTU, now he will have the scar to remind him.

Morris an alcoholic?, geez, he picked the wrong day to start drinking again. Think he is being too hard on himself, sure he could find a way to leave Fayed empty handed, but you have to walk a mile on his shoes to really understand his actions. Chloe, Milo and Buchanan should do better job to help Morris, a pat on the back or a hug work wonders, it doesn't matter how busy they are.

At the end we see our old friend Ex-president Logan trying to get his cut out of today's happening. Logan has a knack for dealing with nukes that go in and out of the country, if he wasn't in jail he could be making a killing in the private security sector, but wait, he got to be a president ans he screwed it over, so never mind.

24: Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Hour 11 am to 12 pm: Papa, is that you?

ATTENTION: Some spoilers ahead, if you live in a place where season 6 of 24 is not broadcasted this is the wrong post to read.

This episode was quite decent, sort kind of recess from the rushes we have experienced so far.

Sandra's "fiance" got beat up good, and that's for playing the "mole" without knowing the principal rule: "never get caught". It was kind of weird seeing all this operation going on, just to realize they were browsing the internet through a mobile phone's browser, I can visualize Chloe saying: "call me when you need to hack a real server with multiple layers of security, not to download ring tones off a cellphone.. duh!!"

Hayes quitting over such babble about letting Fayed go x numbers of months ago, the REAL big deal is to know who fed or misled CTU into thinking Assad was the culprit of the bombing attacks.

Talking about bombing, did they run out of martyrs?, I mean, they have been blowing up every possible target with explosive loaded men and all of the sudden they stopped?.

On the other hand, we saw this guy with the hot chick looking for somebody to program the trigger of a tactical nuclear weapon, if they come up with a guy on a working visa, I'm gonna flip for sure, think the next to blame would be the H1B visa program.

And finally we got to meet Jack's father, trying to solve the mess created by Graem. Is really funny seeing Graem talking about family support when he is the first one tying up his own father and own brother. We knew how bad Graem was, based on what we saw on season 5, but this is going way to far.

Now the weird thing, why Graem's men didn't overpower Jack, and waited to get the keys for the handcuffs.

What's next

If you saw next week's preview, you saw Jack beating the crap ou of Graem. Did Graem think Jack wouldn't free up himself?, for crying out loud, Jack got a president indicted, untying himself is something he learned in kindergarten.
