    I feel sometimes Rob tends to trivialize the show by asking ignorant questions, on how unbelievably un-plausible the story is. Yes it may be. It’s a tvshow. And Josh trys to be as accommodating as possible in his response. I find it hard to listen to Rob trash 24 a bit. Sometimes Rob’s intentional rhetorical questions are funny and valid, but sometimes it’s just plain stupid and ignorant for a hard-core 24 fan.Considering the first five seasons are the prime of 24. I can’t imagine what Rob will say for the rest of three seasons recaps. By then, I’ll probably skip them and i’m sure I wont be missed. I understand it’s hard to find a good balance in commenting on the show as you Rob probably not a 24 hard-core fan as Josh, but maybe some more considerations will be appreciated. And Josh, great job!

      I really enjoy when rob points out all the unbelievably unrealistic parts of the plots.

    • Guilty as charged… I will say that some of these shows I watched about 7-8 years ago and Josh has seen them more recently so I really only vividly recall some of the crazier things.

      I will be much more serious about the plots when we get to the new episodes in May. Hope you can hang in there until then.

        Thank you for your response, Rob. I appreciate podcasters who can take harsher comment once a while. I really love to see you choose to podcast 24 which is close to my heart. I’ll be sure to come back for the new season. Can’t wait! Go 24!

          In Rob’s defense, he was on heroin during this week’s podcast.

            What?! Sorry I missed that. LOL

        • I can take my medicine. We have been shining a light on the more outrageous things. I’ll try to focus a bit more on the positives next week.

    I actually think that season three should not be placed in the same chapter as season 1 and 2 of twenty four because it is the beginning of the transformation of jack Bauer

    Overall notes on this podcast:

    -Sorry Rob, but I think that Josh is the Jack Bauer of 24 podcasting and you are the Chloe O’Brian

    -I agree with you guys about Nina, they got rid of her too early and I think they brought her back too early and lazily. Too much of a coincidence, they should have saved her third appearance for a future season

    -I think I am more against the whole “Jack, Tony, and Gael are working to get Jack undercover” than josh was. It felt, to me at least, like a cheap plot device to keep the show going for 24 hours.

    -Surprised you guys didn’t talk about the Kyle Singer plot which is completely pointless

    -I agree that the virus in the hotel is really good TV and the death of Ryan Chappelle is, in my opinion, one of the most powerful scenes in 24 history.

    I love Season 3, but it would be on the lower end of my overall season power rankings, definitely the lowest of seasons 1-5.

    When will the season 4 recap be up? Damn it Rob, you’re running out of time!
