Ho hum, just another day of Jack Bauer playing the role of noble martyr. The one good takeaway from this episode -- we finally got rid of Audrey. I imagine if Fox decides to trot out this series again, Jack will return, still unappreciated, still hunted, still whispering, with a whole new set of characters to let him down. It's too bad that he doesn't have a personality to match his physical prowess. But as it stands now, the viewer never has any expectation of Jack truly prevailing. The writers should take a page from the Liam Neeson school of Man vs. the World.

The show was great (except for Stoll's ludicrous wig) until the final vampire pile-on. That made me laugh out loud. Actually I'm kind of glad it did. Ending on a note of humor kept the nightmares away.
"So, as the war continues to rage between Mike and Harvey, do you think Harvey made the right move to walk away from negotiations?Of course you meant Mike, not Harvey. You really need to proofread before you publish!

Well NBC appears to be consistent in the predictability and potential for poor quality of their new series. Hope I am wrong, but who in the world gave the green light to "the hot mess" that is Debra Messing and her twins?
Since The Mentalist has gotten out from under the cloud of Red John, I enjoy the fun of watching Jane have fun solving the crime. I would just as soon that Lisbon and her romance faded from the story line. As far as I'm concerned, she has very little charisma or chemistry. Go, stay, I really don't care.
The most satisfying episode in a long time. Everyone was at their best, from Peter and Alicia to Cary and Diane. No more pity parties; the stories focused on the main characters and they all kicked butt!I really prefer this show to concentrate on strategy and politics and leave the office romances out. They just turn the program into a soap opera and heavens knows, we have enough of those on TV.
Correct me if I'm wrong, The voting was in a Republican primary, wasn't it? The idea that either candidate would win against even a mediocre Democratic candidate is the real fantasy here.
The only episode of NCIS I have ever deliberately skipped is the second half of the New Orleans story. Having watched the first half and been very disappointed, I didn't need to waste my time. But then I am also not a fan of the LA spin off either. To me, the chemistry of NCIS can not be duplicated.
A powerful heartbreaking episode. Since I am dealing with a sudden death in my world, it makes it all the more stunning. Mu heart was breaking throughout. They hit all the right buttons of grief, disbelief, faith and rejection of divine will. The muted responses of the major characters was so much more powerful than the histrionics of that foolish intern. All in all, a wonderful episode.
The show keeps getting darker and darker. The basic premise is so cynical and corrupt that it is really bothering me. As Olivia asks her father, "What's the point?" The real issue is not who killed whom but why everyone accepts the fact that people must die to save the republic. Olivia wants to know, and so do I: Where are the White Hats?
