Watching season 4 of "24"...

...a few comments, in order (keeping in mind I'm exactly halfway through the season):

"Right, the plot train has just gotten derailed and is going for a merry stroll through the countryside."

"You know that plot train I mentioned earlier? It's met a few flying pigs on its way."

"Now the train's been joined by a bunch of pink and violet unicorns and is merrily frolicking in a field of roses..."

"...with the addition of a few packs of tapdancing elephants."

And of course, the omnipresent "Is there any point to this or is it just the writers being bastards to the characters again?"

I probably should just sit back, stop analyzing the plot as if I were a writer and try and enjoy the ride. :|

(And yes, I know it's a TV show and not a movie. I'm too lazy to add a new category. :P)

I went on Wikipedia to look up which season that was, and actually went "Oh, that one."
I completely agree that the plot kept getting derailed. And, considering the terrorists' plan (you'll see what I'm referring to when you get closer to the end of the season), I expected their leader to go "Ah, my ridiculously circuitous plan is one-quarter complete!"

Also, did you notice how every important event happens in the last quarter of any given hour?
