I saw the 2 hour premiere of the show and it's really
great! If you loved 24 because of all of its great
action, intrigue, twisty plots and fun characters, you won't
I didn't like in the old series whenever Jack would do
something unethical, but so far in this one he's the good
guy (even though he does some ILLEGAL things, he's being
blamed and hunted wrongly by the government for things he
was blamed for in season 8). He fights a lot of people but
doesn't seem to kill any of them, from what I can tell. I
don't like my heroes to kill people or do bad things if they
can help it.
If you like the right-wing political stuff, the paranoia
and all that, it's still in there, too. There are some
allusions to real world politics. But IMHO that was never
really what 24 was about. In the world of Jack Bauer, Jack
is the only person that can be trusted (and perhaps Chloe).
Everyone else has an agenda or is a clueless puppet.
We see some of the familiar characters besides Jack and
Chloe, such as Audrey and James Heller. There are many new
great faces, some of which you'll recognize from other shows
such as Yvonne Strahovski,
Benjamin Bratt, and Tate Donovan. Bratt and Strahovski play
the good guys who are chasing Jack (now a fugitive). Tate
Donovan has a connection to the Hellers. I don't want to say
more and spoil it for you! These three actors are always
awesome, though, in any of their roles.
Suffice it to say that
Jack is back and looking great as ever! The show is even
better (at least judging from that two hours) then it was
before. Don't miss it...
