So last night following the Grey Cup I was stoked to get to see the FOX movie presentation of 24: Redemption.
The show was amazing – especially for those of us 24 junkies who are going through serious 24 withdrawal. Season 7 did not air last year as it was supposed due to some greasy writers who needed more money. The nature of the show dictates that a season can not be shortened like many shows were last year so it was decided it would be shelved altogether.
Last night’s movie does a beautiful job of showing us what Jack’s been up to since we last left him, as well as what’s happening back in America and who is now in power. It sets up the beginning of Season 7 quite well, also, as it gets Jack Bauer back to America and in custody which is important because, it’s my understanding, that Season 7 opens with Jack facing charges for his previous…. indiscretions, we’ll call them. We all know sometimes to save the country you need to mrder several dozen people – but the government isn’t buying it, I guess.
Anyway, it was a great way to get the show back in to the minds of viewers after a year off and leave them craving the start of the season. I definitely could have used some Chloe and the rest of the CTU gang – but we’ll get them soon enough.
