Preview of 24: Live Another Day

5 05 2014

24Logo2Tonight Kiefer Sutherland returns in his iconic role as Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day. Watching the first two episodes was like visiting with an old friend–it picks right back up as if there had not been 4 years between the end of the season 8 and today’s reincarnation. I knew some of the major cast members who had been announced but I was pleasantly surprised to see Colin Salmon, the actor who I have come to know from Arrow on the CW for the last 2 seasons. Ironically, he had a role in the Bond series “Die Another Day.” Another funny parallel is Yvonne Strahovski‘s character, Kate Morgan. Dexter fans will enjoy that last name.

Some of my observations from the first hour (without outright posting spoilers):
– Cool tech!!!
– Captures your attention immediately.
– How Jack Bauer does not shatter his ankles I will never know.
– The content is relevant to today’s politics.
– Heller (William Devane) is still witty.
– Jack always has a plan.
– It’s the CIA but it still feels like CTU.
– I love Chloe’s badass look.
– Who are the players? We find out who some are during this first episode.

Observations from the second hour:
– That’s unexpected!
– Dangerous bedfellows.
– Was that Stephen Fry? (Yes, it was).
– Chloe is downright bitter.
– Lesson for episode 2: Never trust a woman.

Tune in tonight at 8 Eastern/7 Central for the return of 24: Live Another Day
