OK, I read through the comments on last night's episode. Many of them were about ice dancing. I don't recall there being any ice dancing in 24 last night, but I am not ruling it out, either, because the spisode was very confusing (to me, anyway).
This season seems to be caught in an endless plot loop, wherein bad guys get canisters, and instead of going after the bad guys, the authorities go after Jack Bauer, but of course he gets away and goes after the bad guys, and either he or somebody else kills the bad-guy leader, whereupon a new bad-guy leader appears immediately, and the authorities react by... going after Jack, who gets away and goes after the new bad guys, and either he or somebody else kills the new bad-guy leader, whereupon an even newer bad-guy leader appears, which prompts the authorities to... go ice dancing.
No, seriously, the authorities go after Jack again. Also in every episode President Manilow stands around gaping like a grouper and not making any decisions, and Chloe continues uplinking and downloading amid various melodramas at CTU HQ, and various extras continue setting up perimeters, and at the end of the episode... nothing seems to have changed.
I miss Marwan.
UPDATE: Commenter puppytoes sends a link to this article on last night's episode by Ken Tucker, who is clearly a LOT smarter than I am, although he totally missed the ice-dancing angle.
