Kiefer spent some time in the pokey so I didn't get my 24 fix last year, but...tonight!! 8 p.m. eastern!! I'm ready for some fine action television, lots of grim-faced Kiefer, dark shadows, and shooting. Yes, I know, this is the two-hour set-up for the season that really begins in January. Whatever.
Okay, your assignment is to watch, and then come back tomorrow so we can discuss. This used to be just about the best show on television. I'm willing to overlook the last season. It was perilously close to jumping the shark, I'll admit. But for some mighty fine viewing, go back to season one, get all the DVDs and prepare for a solid weekend of viewing pleasure. Season three works, too. And so will this year!
