Andre Drazen's phone

I'm appealing here for help from you awesome fellow Wiki 24 editors to try and help me identify a cell phone used by Andre Drazen on the show. Identifying phones is a personal project I am doing that I hope one day to make into a proper page, but this one phone I have put countless hours into identifying and still cannot.

It is a grey flip phone that has MP3 capabilities and Mp3 music controls on the flippy down bit on the front. The speaker where you listen seems to have the Motorola "M" logo on it, but I actually think it may be an as-yet unidentified "N" logo, as that is what it has on its back speaker. I am unable to read the text just below the screen - it looks like it may say "Audio-" something or "digital" or something.

If anybody has t…

Seasons openers

After watching the opening of the latest season of 24, I was thinking how much I really enjoyed it and how it seemed to be an improvement on earlier seasons. But I often find that a new season starts fresh, and then a few episodes in loses its momentum. So I thought I'd go back and try to recall my initial thoughts on the opening two episodes of each season.

  • 1 Season 1
  • 2 Season 2
  • 3 Season 3
  • 4 Season 4
  • 5 Season 5
  • 6 Season 6
  • 7 Season 7
  • 8 Season 8
  • 9 Live Another Day

The first episode of season 1 (and 24) I ever saw was actually episode 4. I didn't understand a lot of the storyline, but the episode was reasonably self-contained and enjoyable even without context. I loved the atmos - lots of dingy back alleys, and CTU was a small affair with whispering going on b…

Get the recording!

I thought I'd write this blog to share my views on a certain plot device used on 24 that really winds me up: the incriminating recording, seen in all glory in the second halves of Season 2 and 5.

Now don't get me wrong - I really like the later episodes of those seasons. I much prefer 24 when Jack is on his own relying on his wits and ingenuity rather than having every law enforcement officer and his wife at beck and call. But the "recording" macguffin really annoys me because most of the time...the recordings don't prove anything!

Now I don't mind suspending my disbelief, if it weren't for the fact 24 itself acknowledges this error. Check back to Day 1: 5:00pm-6:00pm, when Mike says of a recording of an evil guy admitting his evil:

Good point Mi…

Best wikis of 2011

Dunno if it'll do any good, but I saw someone stuck our wiki on this poll : here. Apparently we're voting for best wiki, and anyone in the top ten gets spotlighted, so everyone should go vote haha! As we're clearly the best.

Done! Thanks for bringing that up :-D Thief12 01:24, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

First post

Blue Rook has just brought up the idea of blogs, and something has just happened that has made me want to write one.

Tonight I have just spent around 3-4 hours doing offline work for Day 1 Character by season articles. Just now, the word processor crashed and lost aaaaall of the work. I hate everything in the world!

Over on Blue Rook's talk page, you may see that not 2 weeks ago he warned me to back up everything that I worked on, on the computer. Needless to say, I haven't heeded his advice. Only myself to blame, then...
