Chloe O!

Well, that was a delightful hour of "24" tonite. My, so much to absorbed. Throughly enjoyed it.
But just when I thought," jeez...I don't have a favorite scene tonite", they came through in the second half.

Chloe sneaks into the server room to booger up the satellite tail on Audrey. That alone wasn't enough to make this a favorite, 'cause Chloe, poor girl, is always pressed into service for these things.
No, it was the music! Totally retro-y James Bond music! Shades of Dr. No and Goldfinger. I loved it! It played the whole time while she was tweaking the satellite and then when Slick Greasy discovers she's not at her post and goes off to find her, knowing she's gotta be behind this lost signal crap, tension builds as he scurries through the hall and gets to the server room only to find it empty and Chloe emerging from the ladies room. Which of course gave her the chance to make a smartass remark to him when he questioned what she had been doing. The background music made the whole thing even better.

Yeah, I know, dumb...but I appreciate goofy little bones thrown in like that.

Well, I'm such a hick I've never seen 24 but I've just ordered the first series from Netflix.

Just fair warning, Patrick...either you'll hate it with a passion or become one of us blathering 24 fanatics. There seems to be no middle ground.
I'm not one for episodic TV dramas, but this show had me sucked in from the get go. I think it works on the same brain receptors that crack does. ; )

Chloe's comeback to Slick was good. "If you want details I'll write you a report."

I'll say it again. He has to die.

Yep Lem it was! As was the look on his face! Thanks for the quote...it alluded me, it was late when I banged that out and couldn't recall it verbatim.
I still say he'll get promoted or reassigned...if not, then I'll owe you a 6 pack, I reckon.
