TV Review: 24 - 9:00pm - 10:00pm

And the award for Least-Accurate Prediction Of The Year goes to...

"If you listen to me, we'll both get away from here alive!"

Of course, his brilliant plan was: chop off his arm, run into Jack "Show me your head!" Bauer, turn over his only hope of escape to an angry mob, and then stagger around the beach until he collapsed from blood loss. For a guy who seemed to me keeping everyone off-kilter early in the season, Gradenko sure didn't go out very well.

And who knew the 25th Amendment was so simple? The President and the Vice-President each get to talk for, oh, 30 seconds or so, and then the Cabinet votes? Sheesh - the contestants on American Idol get more time to plead their cases than that. By the way, has the Palmer-Daniels administration's party ever been mentioned? There's just no way Daniels could possibly be a Democrat - the last time a Democrat was this assertive militarily was LBJ - but I sure thought that David Palmer was mentioned as a Democrat. How on Earth did Daniels get on the ticket?

Oh, well - pretty entertaining while you're watching it, but like much of 24, it doesn't stand up to any thought. I'm hoping we're about done with the Daniels plot thread for a while.

Oh, and The Shield finally starts up again tonight. Finally!!!!
