Sunday, November 23rd brought us the long awaited return of one of televisions favourite characters, Jack Bauer. There was alot of pressure riding on the producers as the reception of the last season was less than kind. They even took an entire year off rather than put out a half baked, writers strike shortened season. A move that was probably a smart idea. Heroes, I’m looking at you.
It was a good Jack Bauer story. A nicely constructed and simple narrative. Involving Jack having to get from point A to point B. Sprinkle with fire fights and explosions and dust with the connective tissue of the coming plots for Fox’s seventh season of the award winning show.
Seeing Jack in action again was like visiting with an old friend. An old violent, gun toting friend. See you in January Jack!
