"24": Dead Inside Man Walking


After last week's intriguing build-up -- wasn't it wonderful to see
agent Aaron Pierce again? Will he eventually tell us what happened to his sweetheart Martha Logan since stabbing her husband the former president -- you knew this week's 24 was going to be a big one.

And it was, but not in its usual way. I think the "24" that kept your heart racing has morphed into more of a character study. There's action, but not just for the sake of action like before. To me, it feels like the writers are moving toward the end of the show's run.

But before we get to the Jack/Renee Walker/torture issue, some other interesting threads:

"24: Redemption": Two Power Hours of Jack Bauer

Honestly, I barely remember what last happened to Jack Bauer the last time we saw him. But to watch this appetizer of a TV movie, "24: Redemption", on Sunday night at 8pm, you don't need to remember.

I mean, we know Jack right? He's troubled, an outcast trying to do right when everyone else is corrupt and HE. WILL. KILL. YOU.

So, if you like classic Jack, you'll like "Redemption." It's not the very best, but it's good solid Jack and it reminds you of what you love and hate about "24." (You're not a real fan if you don't both love and hate "24.")
