Being my previously #1 TV show of all time, of course I welcomed the come back. In execution though, I was not overly impressed. Would it have been better with a full 24 episode list? Who knows. Worth to watch for an ending to the original saga
24.. ah 24.. Was my number 1 TV show of all time. (I like to number these things in my head) Toppled by Battlestar Galactica. Purely for the ending. 24 did not have a good ending. The last season was 12 episodes, rushed and didn't have the flow it did when they had the full 24-hour-episodes - obviously. 24 is a little pro-US government for my liking - but very much backing the underdog - although he's not always the underdog... Kiefer Sutherland - well known - but blew up his name with this show, and fully deserved, entirely great show.
Unfortunately, Joss' cancellation-curse came with him onto the set of this show! This was so amazing, and I still tell people about it very often. The concept of humans' giving over their lives to be downloaded with alternative personalities/life stories, hired at the whim of rich clients, is just so epic. It would have been nice to get a couple more seasons out of it, I am sure it would have been easily done.
EVERYONE who loves TV needs to watch this. True drama-adult-cartoon with real continuation between episodes - which I loved! Also, I believe it might have the best theme tune of all time. Was stuck in my head for weeks after ending this years' season. Awesome
This show should never have stopped, and of course I was thrilled to hear of the re-boot this year! Rumors were around at the time of ending that the Bush administration requested the cancellation due to 9/11 related conspiracy theories. (Please see The Lone Gunmen pilot!!) - Chris Carter's work-around it seems..?
Absolutely epic show, earlier seasons look dated today and similar to Supernatural with the random monsters they're investigating/fighting, the overall government-based conspiracy through the series evolves (sometimes not quick enough for my liking) is absolutely epic. Totally love this show. Grateful for it's reboot
