24 Season 5
Well, the 4 hour 24 season 5 premier started sunday and wrapped up yesterday and I must say that I am not dissapointed.
This season, Jack is flushed out of hiding when former President David Palmer, and the 3 CTU agents who know jack is alive, are targeted for assassination. Jack quickly realizes that he is being framed for the President's hit, and also those of his friends. The first 4 episodes see Jack investigate the assassinations and curtail a hostage situation at the airport by the terrorists connected with the killings.
I'm not sure how I feel about Sean Astin's character yet. It was probably a bad idea for the first shot of him to be standing next to Chloe and Spenser who were standing above him on the stairs. It just didn't help his Hobbit image.
All in all, a stronger opening than season 4, which took a little while to pick up the pace.
