24: Redemption

I was so freakin’ excited about this event. It had been way too long since an episode of 24. Especially when you consider last seasons crapfest.

This baby started off great. Jack out in Africa being a badass. He takes down a bunch of guys and then gets tortured. Then after that the show began to fizzle out. He gets the kids into the embassy and then gets detained and brought back to America.

I understand that it sets up the new season where he testifies before Congress or whatever, but still, it would have had a little more action. Also, is it possible for the government to run background checks on people who either monitor terrorists (CTU) or protect the President’s son(Secret Service)?

Let us hope that when the season starts Jack is ready to torture and kill as many terrorists as possible.
