24: 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

I had no desire to sit through another season of 24, yet after seeing some previews and then reading about it over at dcuniverse, I decided to give it a shot.  Like every season the first episode is always good and gets me super pumped.  Unfortunately I can already see where things will go downhill.

Obviously Dana will do something incredibly stupid because of her hillbilly blackmailer.  This same something will lead everyone to think she is a terrorist, but in fact the true mole is probably Arlo.

Fox should do a little cross over, bring in Tim Roth from Lie to Me to interrogate all the witnesses.  He gets things done on his show in less than an hour.  Just saying that it might be quicker.

I definitely enjoyed when Jack gets the lecture from his daughter about doing the right thing, and then comes back into CTU.  His voice changes, his demeanor changes.  He is basically like an anti-terrorist machine.

Interesting Stephen King connection (for those of you who believe that everything belongs on a certain level of the Dark Tower), the president’s main guy (Ethan) is played by Bob Gunton, who also played the warden in The Shawshank Redemption (the guy who was being obtuse).  The badass assassin guy (who shot his friend’s wife in the leg) is played by Doug Hutchison, the weaselly Percy from The Green Mile.

Anyways, will his season be any good?  Probably not.  After a few hours, we will be forced to see the new chief of staff try to push Ethan out of his position.  President Hassan’s brother will be caught as the assassin’s helper, yet that will not be the true threat.  Instead we will find out that enemies of Hassan’s country are going to be blow up the entire city New York with an antimatter bomb that was smuggled in only days ago by a former FBI agent, Renee Walker! DUH DUH DUUUHHHH!  Or something.

Anyone still watch this show?
