Jack is Back!

The first episode of 24 lived up to the hype. Although no one was tortured, all the elements of the last season were there: broken bones, explosions, plot twists, dubious loyalites, and fantastic surprises. What is most remarkable about 24 is the ability of the show to catch your attention in the first minute of the show and hold it until the final second.

As Wayne Palmer said, "There's going to be a lot of questions about Sherry," a bullet penetrated David Palmer's neck. Although I was sorry to see President Palmer assassinated, I'm glad that I won't have to rehash questions about Sherry. Minutes later Michelle was taken out by a car bomb. Sadly, another favorite character, Tony Almadea was nailed by a secondary explosion. Just moments earlier he was sipping coffee from his familiar Cubs mug. President Logan continues to be a slimy wet rat. He is more concerned about losing media focus on the "defining moment" of his presidedency than Palmer's death. How dare Palmer stand by a window on such an important day!
