Jack is the man, I love how he handled the paramedics. Next week's 2hr episode looks good.

Anyone know when Elisha Cuthbert will be back, I heard she's coming back this season.
She comes in the last 4 or 6 episdoes, apparently with child.

To each our own, but I think Lost this year is better than 24.

My favourite part of Monday's episode was when Jack was with the paramedics and when he found out that Dubaku had a chip inside him he screamed at the paramedics, "OPEN HIM UP!". I laughed and laughed over that scene.

Has anyone warned Sean Avery about this development.
Dion Phaneuf, sorry but I couldn't resist.

I think both Lost and 24 are having fine years so far.

I don't think they are comparable in any way, though. Lost is a character driven show, whereas 24 is plot driven.

Only thing I thought was odd, Jack handing over that memory chip to some random pilot instead of holding onto it himself. If they can't trust some members of the President's admin why can they trust a random officer. Also the bit about reformatting the FBI's entire server room was laughable.

I don't even get started with poking holes in the plot, because the entire show would pretty much fall to pieces upon the slightest bit of scrutiny - I just turn off the critical thinking portion of my brain when watching the show

If we devoted a thread to all the unbelievable/implausible or plain impossible events that happens every single episode, we could get quite a high-traffic, lively discussion going.

I agree that it didn't make any sense for Jack to give someone else the chip. It also surprised me that Chloe would read it in FBI headquarters, when she knows someone is working against the government.

I was actually disappointed how this portion of the season ended without a suspenseful pick up to the next sequence. I mean Jack even had time to sit outside and relax a bit - what's up with that? They have to regain the momentum all over again.

Right and so he's got this important chip, deadly useful to them, and what does Jack do? He gives it to a nearby random cop and tasks him with delivering it to the FBI. All this while trying to fight corruption.

EDIT: oK. This has been discussed already.

I feel that about LOST, it is so out of control, it is nuts. Alot of filler, then the stories, and characters. They always fall back on the " it's the island "..I guess they can use that as a crutch for losing the story. I think the LOST producers are doing a much better job on Fringe.
This year's premire for LOST could have been a hour, it was like watching a oil painting. Use to be great until all the filler episodes started happening, now episodes seem to drag. 24 seems to fly buy, feels like 20 minutes and it's done, not to mention the best backing music ever, most intense show, and the acting sets it apart from others ( no pun intended )

HDTVVH: We can chose to disagree and not turn this thread into a Lost vs. 24. I watch them both. I like them both. I think that this year Lost is superior. 24 was superior years ago.
You're obviously not really watching Lost this year, as it hasn't had a moment of filler material. It's actually all falling into place nicely this year in fact.

Not doing that..Having trouble staying interested in LOST, have been since late in season 2..Still watch it though, watched it from day 1, NHL strike will do it to ya, just think 4 seasons would have been enough that's all. Do you watch Fringe? Really fresh idea for a show, good characters too.

Why has this thread turned into a LOST vs. 24 discussion. And now... lets start discussing Fringe too! Can we stay on the 24 topic please?
