Groundskeeper will be fucking furious.

Why did they need facial recognition software to identify the face of POTUS?

Yep, I think the pitch will definitely need re-turfing after that! Bonkers how much our own government is kept out of the loop with regards to stuff happening on our own turf (no pun intended). I can imagine Stephen Fry sat in the old boy's club, drinking tea, and doing a spit-take. "The fucking president did what?"

Honestly, if an explosion doesn't rip apart the clock faces of Big Ben at some point, I'll be disappointed.

I thought it was rather amusing when the President asked to be secretly escorted to the middle of Wembley stadium. Sure thing! I'm sure no-one will notice when the president of the USA wanders into the stadium, but just in case let's land a fucking helicopter in the car park. :)

Good stuff though, reality warping writing aside.

Yeah, this is ludicrous but great. It lacks some of the nerve-shredding tension of earlier seasons, but that's probably just due to over-familiarity with the material rather than anything the creators are actually doing wrong.

One question:

If Adrian has been paying off Navarro, why on Earth would he let Chloe be tortured at the CIA sub-station in Episode 1?

Pretty sure they did the explosion effects with one of them rubbish apps that let you blow up your cat/brother/whatever shite you record on your phone.

What I'm saying is that they looked awful. This one and the ones when Jack was driving away from the drone.

Yeah it's cheesy and times but it's always been like this. 24 was one of the first tv shows of it's kind and well, things have moved on since then. Homeland pretty much is a refined 24 (infact season 2 was a bit too much like 24 with some of it's sillyness) thankfully season 3 fixed that.

I'm glad it's back, but it does remind me of how far TV has come.

Is was never this bad or silly before was it? Was it?! Some of the stuff this reason just makes you cringe beyond belief.

It started looking silly from Season 2 to me a few pages back, so...yeah. It became to the point of stupid season 5 and 6ish that it didn't deserve much commenting on anymore. I'll repeat that it's all bullshit, but exciting bullshit nonetheless.

I couldn't be arsed to argue the point at the time, but again, people saying 24 did anything new for the action genre (besides the constantly ticking clock) are just wrong. We've had this sort of thing since the 50's, except they were more investigative. No All-Knowing-Chloe Computer.

. 24 was one of the first tv shows of it's kind

:facepalm:
