    It's kind of wierd - there were a few times where it seemed like Janeane Garofalo was playing the Chloe character.

    I wonder if they will bring back any of the old characters besides Tony.

    24 finally has a fresh look to it! They needed to shake things up a bit and so far, so good. I also like bringing a character back from the dead and they did it in a way that was plausible. I'm also not convinced Tony has been drug over to the bad side.

    Fox web site says Chloe will be back. It will be interesting to see what role she plays. On first blush, Garofalo seems out of place on 24.

    Future Character (sometime "today")
    Jack's daughter
    Saw that on one of the entertainment magazine shows last week.

    I'm not shore how this year will pan out ... CTU is disbanded? Now it is the FBI that Jack has to grudgingly help?

    I'm glad I saw Redemption last weekend or I would be totally lost - but that level of dictator being able to buy technology from home grown terrorists? I expected someone bigger. I guess it has to be someone beatable.

    I miss the regulars from seasons past ... and I suppose one of these "hours" they will stop showing monuments to remind us what city they are shooting in. Are we idiots?

    I *do* wonder about the motivations. I mean, clearly, one bad guy is being funded by a VERY rich and powerful bad guy. But it begs the question of WHY Mr. Evil J. Moneybucks is bothering with a third-rate despot's extended family.

    Mary Lynn Rajskub was on Leno last week; she mentioned Garofalo's character is a friend of Chloe's and near equal in computer geek-ness, which I'm guessing is why it seemed a little last night like she was trying to be a Chloe knockoff. And Chloe did work at CTU in Washington, DC before coming to LA in season three so they may have worked together previously.

    "Janis Gold" is Garofalo's character ... if she worked with Chloe at CTU Washington it would have been before Janis moved to the FBI. (If CTU is disbanded I suppose geeks would find the next best place to work. :))

    The...
    Casting Garofalo as the FBI's version of 'Chloe' was a surprise, but not at all unwelcome. I'm a fan of Janeane's, and, as a comedienne, I have appreciated her 'quirky' take on life. The access duel between her character and Chloe in Monday's two-hour segment was well-executed and believable. I look for more competition, perhaps even fireworks between those two in future episodes.

    Now that we (think we) understand Tony's real role in the terrorist plot, I'm left wondering who is backing Bill and Chloe in this 'independent' black op.

    After a year's hiatus, I was also wondering if I could be "grabbed" by the new season. Needless to say, they got me in the first hour Sunday night.

    It's a new season (day), Jack's back...and so am I.

    Yay! :D

    I agree that we're definitely off to a good start. For me, this is the best launch in a long time. After never ending reality show pablum, it's good to have a series with some real teeth to it.

    It is a shame we have to wait a week for the next hour. :D
    Four hours in two days spoils us!

    I have watched all seasons of 24, but will not watch this year. Casting Garofalo as a FBI agent is a insult.

    Well, I would concede that Garofalo as an FBI agent is rather... Hmmmm.. What's the word I'm looking for? Ironic, perhaps?

    Chloe beats the Janis character hands down. Chloe has guts - Janis just keeps fretting! I'm so glad Chloe came back - when I saw Garofalo's character, I was really afraid Chloe was gone - it wouldn't be 24 for me if Chloe wasn't on it!

    But my husband and I are confused on one point - the president's son that was killed - is that from an earlier season or from Redemption? Neither of us remember anything about that part of the storyline.

    I had quick watching 24 a couple of seasons back, but after watching Redemption I decided to give it another try. So far I've really liked it. Great seeing Chloe again!

    Between Redemption and Day 7.

    In Redemption the president's son was contacted by a trader who was laundering money for the bad guys. The trader wanted to come clean and on inauguration day met with the president's son and told him a few things. The trader apparently didn't get a chance to send the evidence before the trader was caught by the bad guys. The inference is that the bad guys thought that the president's son knew too much (and perhaps he investigated more in the off season) and was killed to keep the secret.

    I expect more deaths to keep the secret. Perhaps even the first gentleman? (Speculation not spoiler.)

    That was confusing to me on how the presidents son got killed. I didn't see it in Redemption and they just threw it at us.
    Garofalo as an FBI agent doesn't bother me much. I didn't know who she was and thought her character was minor. I do see her as a Chloe counterpart. I think there is no question Chloe is the best computer expert and the one I want to watch.
    All in all I think this is starting to be a real good season for 24!
