Did anyone else watch the 2 hour Season 7 prequel tonight?
On the whole, I liked it--it was certainly less insane than Season 6. I had a problem with two distinct areas. First, while I understand that it is topical and somewhat accurate of some global events, I tire easily of the "child in peril" theme. The kid that was always going back and stopping them from moving forward, well, I'd have just shot him for being annoying. Second, WTF was up with the embassy guy's glasses and sideburns? It was like he was straight out of 1973. On the other hand, Jack killed a guy with his thighs, and that is my all-time favorite Bauer move so the rest is forgiven.
I'm excited at the prospect of a fresh season of 24, even if Tony is inexplicably back. I think I'm going to try to re-watch Season 5 (my fav) before the start of the new episodes in January.
