Yup, in that way, like 24 without the cool accessories.. . .So much of the show is Bauer chasing after his son . . .
But I'll watch anyway for the writing of the vignettes. I saw something on an entertainment news program about the short-story writers working for the show.
The thing that makes me laugh (other than "Jake! Jake! pant, pant") is how the social worker (or whatever her job is) keeps insisting on how their facility is such a great place for Jake -- while he's running out the door.
