At the “24” website, there is a poll up asking viewers:
Do you think Jack’s dad Phillip is a bad guy?
- Yes, he’s in cahoots with Graem and faking.
- No, he didn’t know what Graem was up to.
I don’t know whether he is or not. What I want to know is whether or not I am the only person unfamiliar with that particular spelling of Jack’s brother’s name.
Program note: Next week (Feb. 12) there are two back-to-back (they call them “Jack-to-Jack”) episodes.
Update: Did anyone else find the following line from next week’s preview of “24” really disturbing?
President Palmer: “Just one more nuke goes off, we’re talkin’ about war.”
What? Just one more nuke? Maybe the evil Vice President does need to step up and take out Palmer. I guess I will withhold judgment until next week. Maybe the line was completely out of context, but it was pretty amazing as a stand alone.
