Did You Know?


Up to this point, Fox had been showing repeats of each episode on Friday evenings at 9:00 P.M. in an effort to allow viewers to catch up on missed programs. Fox decided to stop the re-runs due to bad ratings, though they continued to rebroadcast each week's episode on their cable outlet, F-X. See more »

A Surprising Revelation!
6 May 2015 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the sixth episode of the first season of 24. I found it to be another intriguing episode that has some surprising revelations, but I should have seen them coming. The cat-and-mouse games continue and they take a turn for the better in this episode. The political drama focused on Palmer is actually very interesting to watch.

In this episode, "5:00," Jack meets Teri at the hospital and there the viewers are revealed that Alan is actually working for Gaines. Alan convinces Teri to go with him to a remote location. David Palmer confronts his family about all the secrets and lies. Nina is able to ID a body that was found in a trunk discovered by Jack.

Overall, a very solid episode and this may be the best episode yet. The ending has a flair for the dramatic, so I am definitely curious to see what happens next.

My Grade: A
