So, just finished watching the first episode of the new Season of 24, currently in the process of waiting for the second to finish extracting...

It's very good, gets you right back into the swing of things in an hour and fills in the gaps. It was almost tragic to know that Jack's new life wasn't going to last for long, but there's at least one explosion in the episode to make up for that one.

Anyone else seen it, what did they think and/or are hoping for?

I've also decided to ditch my Dr. Horrible avatar whilst this season is airing just to spread the interogatory-love just a bit more.

But yeah, replies plx, cheers.

Assuming this isn't a troll, she's been on the show since season 1.

I'd start from the beginning if I was you, there's a lot of Elisha in that series for sure...

The Katee Sackhoff character is proving to be the most enjoyable of series-to-series crossover elements.

Watched the first 2 episodes of this season and was NOT IMPRESSED.

I feel like everything I've watched in 2 episodes ive seen spread across all the seasons. Everything is ridiculously predictable and it's hurting the show severly for me. To the point that I will not watch further.

Examples:
-CTU not trusting jack, jack going behind there back
-Undercover agent working to kill a presidential target
-Jack not caring, then being made to care to fit into the show



I love it when jack gets in fights, he's great to watch - but what has been seen has already been seen too many times, and no fancy CTU agency or city will change that.

24 should have ended after season 6... season 7 sucked, and season 8 so far is not looking much better.

I cannot disagree more, Season 7 was a masterpiece and constantly turned your mind into one great clusterfuck. That twinned with Redemption, made the viewing experience a lot more interesting and painting a back-history into the lesser-characters. Season 4 was a pile of crap; that's for sure (OMG WE'RE INVOKING THE 25TH AMENDMENT AGAIN LOL), and in my opinion Season 5, although at times was incredible, I just wanted it to be wrapped up and concluded asap.

Season 2 will always be my favourite though, always, it had everything.

Season 8 is typical 24 formula (which all seasons are) which is why it's awesome. Except season 6. Shit sucks.

I for one am sick of the typical twists and turns. They need a complete overhaul on everything.

Saw the most recent episode, and I still do not care for the ex-Battlestar's character in the slightest, I just wanted to see more about the Russian Mob and Renee to be honest. The ep was...alright; hoping the next one will be much more action-packed, far too much dialogue.

Watched episodes 1 to 6. I gotta say it's kind of boring. It's only exciting when Jack is on. And for some unknown reason, Freddy Prince Jr. Renee was more interesting last season. Now she's just some broken down bitch.

And what the hell is up with Prince's fiance? Her storyline is fucking beyond stupid. Seasons 1 to 3 were epic, Season 4 was ok, Season 5 they decided to kill everyone which really hurt the series but it was still somewhat entertaining, Season 6 was pretty bad, Season 7's middle was good, the rest was meh, and Season 8 is looking to be the worst season yet. They have no one left to care about, and something just feels off. The first few seasons had a 24 feel to it, and the later seasons just don't seem to have it anymore.

So, there's a couple more episodes to go for this Season, and it really seems to have picked itself up, a LOT. Without spoiling anything, if you're expecting a lot of old faces and a lot of deaths towards the end, you're most definitely going to get it. I think the show does a complete u-turn in terms of decency around mid-way.
