Jack is Back
Season 5 of 24 is well underway now that the entire four hour premiere has aired. (I use the word "entire" rather loosely, since my local broadcaster accidently replaced ten minutes of episode 3 with ten minutes of election commercials.)
As a long time fan, I'm happy with it... it might have even been the strongest opener the show has ever had. But on this show, the opening is the part that they always get right. The middles and endings, on the other hand, haven't always been up to snuff. Season 4 went off the rails six episodes in and didn't really recover until the final quarter. There was way too much extraneous time-killing filler in the middle. Bad guys, if your conspiracy isn't convoluted enough to fill 24 whole hours, you are on the wrong program!
The final installment of Whatever Happened to Sam and Fuzzy arrives on Friday. See you then!
