    Well, here's "24" again, with a renewed sense of dot-connecting purpose (fictional, yet symbolic) and a two-night premiere, Sunday and Monday -- a rollicking four-hour chunk in which the series seems on track to rediscover some of its original verve.

    This “24? seems more realistic than usual, and it offers many exciting moments. Yet there are many familiar distractions that underscore how “24? has aged. All in all, the new season is a mixed bag.
  3. From these four hours it's clear there are few new stories or twists for the show to employ. It's time has come and gone.

    Though I was glad to see Chloe and Renee back, I have to admit - the rest of the cast did little to entertain me. I feel like 24 season eightThough I was glad to see Chloe and Renee back, I have to admit - the rest of the cast did little to entertain me. I feel like 24 season eight must have had new writers. The final season paled in comparison to the previous 7. Maybe it was time to call it finished. Full Review »
