Tonight on the Tube: 24, Golden Globes, Wildfire and What About Brian

24 Real Action Hero Jack Bauer in Black Suit 12-Inch FigureWow, did 24 get off to a pretty good start last night. Jack has been released from the Chinese imprisonment, escaped from a man who wants him dead for killing his brother, thwarted the governments attack on the suspected bad guy who was being setup and foiled one of the bombing attacks. Not bad for two hours work for a guy who has been tortured for the last almost two years. What will happen in the next two hours tonight? I can’t wait to find out? How about you?
