This season is pretty gripping stuff already, but I'm wondering if the writers may have reached a boil too soon. It's getting really dense on this show, and one particular plotline -- the bit with the President's husband and his crusade to uncover his son's murderer -- is threatening to spin out of control a bit.
Anyway, I'm resorting to keeping notes now on what's going on. If this season runs true to form, the show will lose some steam between hours 9 and 14 (this year, roughly between 5 pm and 11 pm) before ramping it back up again toward the finale. From what I've read about how the writers work on 24 -- that they don't really plot it all out before they start -- that's generally when they reach the point where they don't know where they're going.
Oh, and Agent Walker is the prettiest FBI agent on teevee since Dana Scully.
