Jack has the recording back in his possession… or does he!!!
Henderson took it from him back at the airport… OR did he!!!
Heller took it from Jack and gave it to his henchman… OR did he!!!
Considering that nobody ever PLAYS the recording after they capture it, do we really know where the true recording is?
Well, no matter. The president doesn’t have time for recordings. He wants to blow up a plane. “Missile goes BOOOM!!! Hee hee hee! Now let’s shoot nukes at Russians, see big flashies in the sky! No! I don’t wanna nap! Want more Ka-BOOM!”
(Martha Logan: “Well dear, you’re never getting any ka-boom from me ever again…”)
Amen to that! I thought it was going to hit, and the overpass would catch on the tail and make it do a wheelie or something. I was hoping…
So Miles is going to make the ONLY COPY of the recording all FUBAR, saving Logan’s ass…? And when CTU finally got their hands on it, did they PLAY it for Chloe and Karen and Bill and the people in on the loop to hear? More witnesses you know? And did they upload it to the frickin server? And to Chloe’s laptop? And to any other convenient backup storage locations? No. Of course not…
It’s a high-tech digital world, yet CTU agents are not trained in the ways of Copy and Paste…
Man, this show is really becoming taxing. I don’t know if I’ll bother next year. I know it’s tough to fill up 24 hours, but give us a break from the constant barrage of things going wrong. What a sorry episode.
Yet Miles has enough psychic ability (preview spoiler) to know what model of digital recorder the evidence is on, find an exactly matching model lying around somewhere, and swap it out in front of Bar-Lech-Zapping Woman. And Hack doesn’t drop a copy onto her laptop whilst cleaning it up?
I think the most unbelievable thing to happen in these 22 hours or so is that Chloe didn’t copy that important evidence BEFORE she began futzing with it. That just doesn’t happen, folks! I don’t care how tired and crabby she is.
And I wanna hire Black Bauer to be my personal bodyguard and liar! Damn! He’s good!
And I don’t want Jack to be all googly-eyed and holding that Audrey’s hand! Get back to work, Jack! There’s trouble afoot!
Ya know, I only half-caught the last few episodes because I was simultaneously playing poker online (heretofore to be known as “simul-poker”.) I think next week I may return to that method of watching 24.
Black Bauer is a Jedi! Who knew?
Marine: IDs please.
Curtis Kenobi: You don’t need to see our identifications.
Marine: We don’t need to see their identifications.
Curtis Kenobi: This isn’t the terrorist you’re looking for.
Marine: This isn’t the terrorist we’re looking for.
Curtis Kenobi: We can go about our business.
Marine: You can go about your business.
Curtis Kenobi: Move along.
Marine: Move along…move along.
Our electronic evidence lab manager here at work would have freakin’ shit.
I think he’s got a better than average chance of meeting with a helicopter related accident in the next three hours.
I think Bauer might be Hellers illigitimate son. They apparently share the same indestructibility gene.
I still can’t believe they haven’t played the recording to anyone. Jack should have broken into a computer store and gotten some portable speakers and walked into CTU with that thing blasting. He played it for Heller, why not play it for the CTU people when he got there before handing it off to Chloe.
Now of course Miles is going to be saying “there wasn’t any evidence, Jack is crazy, you never heard it did you, blah blah blah”… although luckily Logan will probably have him killed so that’s something to look forward to.
Why the heck does it take Chloe so long to get the data off? Is it like USB 0.01 or something? She had the recording the whole time president wuss was contemplating suicide.
Where the hell is Wayne Palmer, in Buchanan’s basement?
This episode was a big letdown. I did think the landing was pretty intense, though. I kept thinking about this show I saw about the develoment of the 777 where they test the stress limit on the wings and they had them pointing almost straight up before critical failure. Shooting frozen birds into the engines was cool too.
