The 24 reboot on Fox (Live Another Day) is getting shockingly intense. Terrorist insanity streams forward and the U.S. President (William Devane) had better start relying on Jack Bauer in a wholehearted way. Er, the U.S. government has really been blowing it. The zealous CIA agent, Kate Morgan, joins Bauer in his anti-Psychopath With A Drone cause, and a Marine commander peevishly complains about Morgan and gets her removed from the case! And this is in the face of an on-coming drone attack that will fry thousands of Brits! Way to go, government!
The action scenes in 24 are adroitly handled and most of the acting is delightfully good. It’s a creepy role, Michelle Fairley, but you’re doing an impeccable job in it.
