24 blogging: Holy crap!

Holy crap! They killed off...

... Edgar at the end of tonight's episode of 24 by nerve gas!

I'm bummed. As annoying as he could be at times, I kind of liked his rather whiny, pudgy character.

It's a rather nifty cliffhanger ending, though, with nerve gas released into CTU headquarters and the core staff trapped in the situation room.

And we're only halfway through the season. I can't wait to see what's going to happen next.

I know! poor Edgar. And poor Chloe! They were both so irritating but endearing with their love/hate relationship.

Being a last year 24 junkie, I was not surprised at the ending once Edgar had gone downstairs to investigate.

One thing that bugged me, though...what were the 'brains' at CTU thinking? CTU is a high value target, just for the political, tactical and terror value, and it seemed to be security-business as usual.The pass card is coded, and their system does not display the name of the person? I have gone into secure areas where my coded pass card contains my thumb print, photo and name, in addition to identifying who I am (organization, etc.).

CBS 2 and A&E are doing re-runs of the years where I was not tuned in. Good thing I only need 4 hours sleep.
