I was pleased to read this review of the 7th season premiere of 24. I’ve been a fan of the show since it began and had to agree that it had lost some of the intensity and enjoyment of the first seasons. Among the criticisms faced by the show during its run has been the depiction of tough interrogation tactics, not always on guilty persons. This season’s response?
The show’s creators have apparently found a delectable solution to their political problem — a hero who has seen the light, who also knows, nonetheless, that it, like all of his moral re-education, has nothing to do with the reality of fighting terrorism.
I’ve always enjoyed the element of realism provided in its moral quandries. Ugly stuff has to be done. Hopefully a Jack Bauer will be there when we need them.
