Aliens vs. a PT Cruiser: How to Get the Right of Way Anytime You Want

Well, this particular morning, the NSA has uncovered a plot to detonate a nuclear bomb over Los Angeles sometime before the end of the day. Jack Bauer's life gets a lot more complicated when the president requests that he be re-activated as an agent to head up the field work for this investigation.
