Folks, it just doesn’t get any worse than this. I’m not sure if this is even as good as Hostages and man, was that a joke in terms of plausibility. Truly bottom of the barrel stuff, unless you check any ounce of intelligence at the door when viewing. 24 can’t return soon enough. At least when Jack Bauer consistently blew off any sense of law enforcement protocol/backup, he’d offer some facsimile of a reason for it. This is some sad, sad stuff.

Love this show….i’ve watched season 1 two times and could not wait for season 2. Season 2 is gearing up to be as good as the first season if not better. Kevin Bacon deserves lots of awards. he really plays the character.
