  • Jack is back 1

    He is back and he is mad, but ofcourse once again he has to take charge when everybody cant do their job. Amazing acting once again. Though at this point of the season we were missing Tony.

    I think Jack said it best himself. Staff is looking like something you'd meet entering a clothing store, the head of CTU looks like a bluetooth jackass who just so happened to discover you don't need to hold your cellphone, CTU itself looks like something out of a hipster/IKEA collaboration and no one is listening to Chloe? What is honestly going on Whereas the rest of 24 has left you guessing from the start, shrouding some mystery over the events to transpire, this seems pretty clear cut and I'm not impressed thus far.moreless
  • Jack's Back!

    7.0
    Another watchable episode during this 4 episode event although nothing terribly unexpected or exciting happens actually the opposite and I didn't realize it started this soon but the mind numbing subplot with Dana Walsh bleh!! Believe me I love Katee Sackhoff but I wish they hadn't given her this to work with.

    Not much else to speak of besides I love the partnership of Jack and Chloe sparking back to life as they are the only two characters we really know as of now. I'm also glad that Kim was able to let her dad go knowing it would eat at him if he didn't help stop this assassination.moreless
  • Jack is thrust back into the world of CTU after his informant is ambushed. Jack and Chloe continue to hit obstacles when Hastings refuses to listen to their theories. That forces Jack and Chloe to do what they do best.moreless

    This episode, as well as the season opener, do a good job at establishing mood for the season. I am a bit concerned as I watched this episode that the eighth season will become too formulaic. I see that mostly in the character of Brian Hastings. Jack and Chloe try to get him to listen, but he refuses confident that he is on the right track. Then, after something major happens, Hastings begins to listen. I hope that is not a sign of things to come this season. It's always good to see Chloe, she is a very good character.moreless
  • Oh, oh... The level is going down...

    6.0
    As i said in the previous comment, this new season is not as great as you maybe expect, but is very entertaining.

    This conclusion of the return of the show is entertaining too, but also is worse than the first episode, althought this one contains the first twist of all season.



    The twist is very good and unexpected and the performances of the most of the cast are good. The rhythm is entertaining and the end of the episode, although is not at all as powerful as the first one, keeps you on the edge one more time.



    But i liked that the level will improve very fast and the new characters get better too.moreless
