'24' - Hours 3 and 4  
Man, we have to wait another week now, and we get only one hour from here on out. NOT FAIR, I want it all now!!!!

Okay, first things first -- CHLOE!!!

Now, second thing ... am I totally insane or does it seem like there's an ACTUAL legitimate inkling that they MIGHT be venturing towards a possible Chloe/Jack something!?!?! I mean, their first contact and ...

a) Jack reacts to hearing her voice very distinctly
b) Chloe ends that first phone conversation by telling him (after complaining about the Senate's treatment) "you looked good, though."

And then when they saw each other for the first time. OMIGOD!!!! It was played like a moment, right?!?! That totally was NOT my imagination. RIGHT?!?!!? Her not being in there when they first walked in to get some obligatory 'where are we' dialogue out of the way, and then she did, stopped still, he turned to her. She said his name in a soft voice, he said her name in a soft voice, walking towards her. She told him (in the same soft voice) "it's good to see you," he repeated the sentiment back.

And then, and then, and then!! After she realized that Jack could possibly die and Bill knew it, then Bill said "and Jack did too," it went to her devastasted face AND THEN cut to a matching block of Jack's face, having them side by side.

So am I crazy? Am I seeing what I want to? Or did it actually play like there might be potential this season!?!?!? Gosh, I hope so!!!!!!!!

As for the rest of the show ... soooooooo good so far. Unlike last season, all of the characters/actors that are new are GOOD, well-cast, interesting layers to them. The plot is good and twisty and it's just good!

Random ...

- Okay, non-suited up, non-regulation-haircut Bill is HAWT!!!

- So, Janis is totally to Renee what Chloe is to Jack -- crush and all. Totally.

- Okay, I give, Renee is actually turning out to be a more interesing characters, and I like her freckles.

- I really want President Cherry to somehow find out that Jack is good because I'm so tired of Jack being on the wrong side of the President. I miss the BFF days of Jack and David Palmer.

- Hah! Tony's good, not surprised. Yay!

All in all, just good show. And JACK AND CHLOE!!!! SQUEE!!!!!!

I could not agree more with the whole 24 is good again. I loved last night's episode. Loved it. And I miss the BFF days with Palmer too. I'm not quite so on board with the President SL yet as that's dragging a little for me but everything else was superb. Loved it.

And yes - I did get a distinct vibe. I don't know if they will go there (I'm thinking not) but they did really emphasize the "you looked good" comment.

You got the vibe too!?!? And you're not a Jack/Chloe shipper, right? But you got the vibe too!?!? Ah, I hope. Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease

Hee - no I'm not a shipper. I just found it an odd emphasis on repeating the "you looked good" statement twice. There were definitely all kinds of undertones going on during that scene. I love a scene filled with undertones. Pure acting high for me.

Omg I'm happy I'm not the only one who wondered about the Jack and Chloe moment!
But damn, they've been doing this to us so frequently since that little concerned moment they had on the phone after she went all "rambo" in season 4! Or last year, how she was so so pained that he was gonna be killed in the first couple hours, and then when they saw each other for the first time, there was TOTALLY a little tender moment between them, he freaking rubbed her arm for crying out loud!
So, hopefully this season, SOMETHING will come out of Jack and Chloe. MLR looks really pretty this year too, I loved the darker hair last year, but the skirt was weird, but this year they've got her costume just right.

ANd I'm just totally pumped that Tony is back, and good! He and Jack always had such a great balance on screen, and he's back, and that balance is back, and so far there are no stupid Mary Sues running around, and I just have a feeling this year is gonna be great!

That Jack/Chloe moment(s) was amazing!! I loved it and have watched it multiple times.

I don't know, I thought it was stronger tonight then I remember from before, maybe because they didn't physically touch. It was like, there was this tension there that we haven't seen before. I loved it; I really did.

Yes, Tony is good!! And he and Jack are bromancing again. Woohoo!!! I think it's gonna be great too!
