Off the Hook

24 is off the hook. Get on this now. Palpable dread of impending doom. Bearuaecrats in full meltdown mode, and a brother stepping up to do the right thing and get the agency back on track. Jean Smart going for an Emmy. Robocop as Jack Bauer's Qui Gonn Jinn, up until the point when he tries to blow his old padawan up. And 2 hours next Monday! At first I thought the mood music was overly subliminal, but lately I've realized that it builds and builds and really plays the audience (the Duquin calls in "heart attack television") in a very subliminal Hitchcockian manner, which is good (especially for a tv show). Great stuff. Top of the pops.
