Jack is back! After an excurciatingly long break, 24 returns, bringing with it change, change we need
Last year, 24 got off to a strong start. Jack was brought back from China and ready to die. The latter never happened. Soon after, he killed a former co-worker and friend and then watched as a nuclear bomb exploded in downtown LA. It was all downhill from there. Plot line riddled the season that were contrived or tired or both. The show was in serious critical down spiral. Enter the writers strike. 24 took an extra long break to allow all 24 episodes to be shown without interruption. The wait was worth it. Showcasing a sprawling new location and an array of new characters, 24 kicked off to a strong start this past sunday. The first two hours were great, but the 3rd and 4th hours, which aired tonight, were FANTASTIC. 24 took a big twist, the likes of which haven't been seen since season 5, where President Logan was the key figure in a giant Government conspiracy. I won't say anymore about the new twist, as I do not wish to ruin it, but its good! i have a feeling this year is going to be a big return to form for 24. The show has implemented a big change. In a time where our country is welcoming change wit open arms, it is a good omen. WELCOME BACK JACK!
