I won't make it a sticky. But I will add the "Official Thread" tag. Good suggestion.

Ottawa had no simsub at all on FOXE (Fox2 Detroit) for either hour.

Also, i noticed the dot pattern last night everyone has been talking about, that being said i've never seen it at my house, only last night at my friends on his 720P DLP tv.

I just want to make clear that the purpose of this thread is to actually discuss 24-Season 6, the program. To keep discussing the faulty simsub of 24 by Global OR picture quality of the broadcast is getting repetitious and does not serve to contribute insights into the actual content of the show.

Thank you very much Cyclism.

Wow, every time something is on Global, all we read about is simsubbing. It's as if people did not care what the show is about, they only care about the broadcast.

Anyway, I almost got fooled about Jack's father not being involved.

I'm still trying to figure out what rational motive exists for selling nuclear weapons that could obviously be used on your soil. No matter how much money involved...

Now, the whole plot about the President being the target of a coup... I'm not sure what to make of that. I can understand the disagreement behind the proposal from the security advisor, but to go as far as eliminating the Pres....

This season stinks.

Im just re watching season 1 and 2. Amazing stuff.

Season 6 is just a bore compared to Nina Myers!

on to how Jack is going to kill dear ol' dad, end up with the sister-in-law and her kid (which maybe already is his kid) and never live happily-ever-after!

I want to say that this show was one of my favorite shows.

I want to say, on-topic, that the show had 67 scenes of torture and it appears more and more to be used as an endorsement for that. So it's not one my favorites any longer.

There does seem to be a bit more gore this season for sure. I still love the show and the "real-time" aspect of the episodes.

Too bad they were not able to get Donald Sutherland to play Jack's Dad. That would have been sweet.

Cheers.

os,

I'm not sure the show "endorses" torture. They are trying to make it realistic by portraying interrogation techniques used in the intelligence world.

I'm not sure there's much of a choice given the nature of the plot? What would you suggest they do to terrorists they capture and volunterily withold vital information?

shabbs, I believe (perhaps you knew this) Donald Sutherland was not available for this shoot. Conflicting schedules is the reason. Too bad, I agree.

Yeah - I knew they tried to get him but he was filming somewhere else and was unavailable.

So you are saying that the intelligence world is currently using the "techniques" of interrogation used by Jack Bauer ? Are you kidding? Torture is illegal. They will end up in jail if they'd do something like that (I mean in a lawful country, not in a police state).

The show may not endorse torture, but it is used by American right wing to justify the use of torture to extract information. Even the US military has requested that the show (which is very popular among the young soldiers sent to Iraq) stop using (and abusing) torture in the show. Search the Internet for "24 +torture". There is a whole debate out there.

os, you are thinking anybody abides by this rule and offers a suspected terrorist coffee and donuts for a little sit down around the kitchen table?

And when the guy, after finishing his snack, politely turns down their request for information, they just escort him back to his prison cell for an afternoon nap?

I don't think anybody tortures anyone for the fun of it. As a matter of fact, you can see how Jack Bauer (who's been tortured in the past and more recently while captive in China) struggles with having to resort to torture.

What alternative is there?
