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.
