Kim's back, which mean she'll be kidnapped, chased by a huge rat and anal probed by aliens this season.  Still, I'm pumped for more Jack!

If you don't mind using torrent, google for eztv site and you should be able to find torrent of almost every single tv show there.

When the captain from The Shield shows up and says "I have information" I so wanted Jack to answer, "About Vic Mackey?"

You should watch season 5 then. It's their best season and Kim is nowhere to be found for the entire day!

Kim was bad in season 1, and absolutely atrociously horrible in season 2. Seriously, the second time I watched that season I skipped ahead every time she appeared on the screen (with one exception somewhat late in the season) and the season got much better for it.

By season 3 the writers seemed to realize their folly though, so Kim became a lot more bearable then, if not more realistic. The show is usually better when she's not around.

Don't let her presence deter you from watching the rest of the show though. There's some fantastic stuff in the later seasons.

There's a strong feeling that this may be the final season. Kiefer's contract is up and FOX doesn't seem to be in any hurry to renew. I'm ok with that, as it's been a great ride*, but it's probably time to end it now.

*Season 6 excluded

Part of me wants to watch this in hopes that they get back to the good old days.  Then the rest of me remembers the absolute ridiculousness of the last two seasons and the number of times I smacked my forehead in frustration over the stupidity that they were asking me to buy into week after week until I finally gave up watching.

And yet I'm still vaguely tempted to watch.

I'm so ready for the Jack Bauer Power Hour to return. Especially if this is the last season. For some reason, I'm ready to see them go out and I think if they planned for it then this could be a great send-off. That being said, I'll be pissed if it's as awful as season six was.

It's nice to see that, no matter how much CTU changes, their employee background-checking team is as thorough as ever slywink  This was a solid start to the season, and it should kick into high gear next week when (next week's preview spoilers)

They really need a motto at CTU to go with the new decor - "Jack Bauer is always right".

Pretty fun start to the new season.  Seems like they're going to pull the same 24 plot devices, but I'm not complaining.

I always love the "furtive look" characters give out at least a half hour before they're revealed to either be a traitor, or have a secret.  Katee did hers last night a few minutes before Cletus called.  Camera cuts to Katee, she glances nervously to the left...then to the right...then camera goes back to normal shots of everyone.   icon_lol

for some strange reason, i find her strangely asexual.  i don't understand why, though.  she has all the right components of a hot girl, but when i look at her my initial thought isn't "VA VA VOOM!", it's more like, "I wonder if i have more chicken pot pies in the freezer?".   icon_confused

yeah, it seems like doing her would be akin to doing your own sister.  she has that whole 'sisterly' vibe going.

Who is the actor playing "Mike" (the RPG/hacker/fake cop/bad guy)? I can't place where I've seen him before and my google-fu is lacking today (I'm finding lots of the other guest actors, but I can't find him). It's making me crazy trying to remember where I've seen him before. smile
