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.

    Just the title of your post makes me excited for this new season.

    Seriously can’t wait. Finally watched 24 Redemption the other day, bracing myself for the two hours on Sunday and two hours on Monday coming up!

    I’m reminded of another Lynette-ism. I finished Season 5 in our hotel room in Hong Kong. Lynette pretends 24 is too violent for her, but as we watched Jack Bauer fight some Russians on a submarine, and Bad Guy 1 knocked Jack’s gun out of his hand, so Jack circles around Bad Guy 1, and grabs the trigger shooting Bad Guy 2 with Bad Guy 1’s gun, while Bad Guy 1 is still holding the gun. Lynette just camly shakes her head and simply says….

    “Jack’s good.”

    The Moral question is always there. When Jack made the decision to Kill Ryan Chapelle he says “God, forgive me,” and then shoots Chapelle dead. His character understands the weight of his actions and you see the choices lived out before your eyes….Now for something fun

    Put this bumper sticker on your car or TAC Team SUV:

    OK – did everyone watch the four hour premier? We must talk and speculate. Tony Almeda. Bill Buchannon. So much to discuss…

    Sorry to keep you hanging LeMare. Mrs. Lowdogg doesn’t like 24 (her aversion is similar to Lynette’s) so I didn’ get to finish the premiere until the other night.

    I was very happy with it. Very happy to see the little hacker battle with Chloe and Janise(ice?).

    I’m intrigued about whether anyone in Jack’s new little circle will betray him, whether any will die or face prosecution.

    Man, I was getting tired of the Freckled FBI woman whining. I think (hope) Jack saving her will put an end to her “I TRUSTED YOU” nonsense.

    She did the depressed look really well. Jack is the man, shooting her in the neck(!) to sell it.

    Freckles is driving me crazy. I need her to get a better personality soon.

    Don’t worry, they’ll “Connect the dots” with her personality. I’m of Irish descent, so the freckles work for me…17:45 Min to go…

    Is it just me, or is this season a little boring?
