And if you can take Katie Couric, the whole flight crew is sitting down with her on 60 minutes this Sunday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
We’re seven episodes into season 7 of the popular FOX show 24 and I thought I’d share a couple of observations.
I like the major themes so far. There’s no oddball story line sucking time away from the main story line like last season. Everything appears to tie in or will tie in eventually.
The program, which broke ground with not one, but two African American presidents (Did this pave the way for Obama’s victory?) now has a female president.
Now one thing I haven’t liked:
Yes, Tony is alive! The CTU, although disbanded, still has Buchanon and Chloe to aid Jack in his quests. Renee, the FBI agent, was rescued and resusitated. The presidents husband comes out of a drug-induced paralysis to prevent a plot from being successful. I’m halfway wondering if Michelle and Edgar will appear. Maybe Emerson is not really dead.
But overall things seem to be progressing better than last year. There’s the usual ineptness of the federal government, but not it’s still believable, because the suspense sucks you along.
The web team of FOX6Now.com has rolled out the new updated site for FOX’s affiliate in Milwaukee. Update your links, if you have them.
I’ll be over at Blogs.4Bauer for the live blog of Episode 6.
There is little doubt that “24″ is back. After a lackluster season 6 which looked as though the writers wanted to go one direction and had to go a different direction, resulting in the appearance of a show jumping the shark, the first four episodes (like the season 6.5 “Redemption”) shows a better product.
The folks at Blogs.4Bauer have their usual irreverent reviews of the first two episodes (latch on to those nicknames because they may be kept all season) along with an “historical” look at “Talk like Jack Bauer Day.” They also live blog each episode using the Cover it Live vehicle.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.
This season looks promising. Tony Almeda appears to have switched to the bad guys, Jack is being held accountable for what he’s done in the past, and a female president. Every one knows a female president would be weak (Ducks. Quickly.).
Hopefully it will live up to the previews.
Episodes 1-4 appear to have been leaked although of low quality. You can find some spoilers, too, although not enough to betray alot.
