It's hard not to want more. Four years of being clean, then a double hit - hmmm, that's good - and yeah, I'm back too.

A consolation then that 24 doesn't have any of draggy stuff that so quickly palled Homeland's charms; there are no stroppy teenagers in Jack's world.

Even with its five-minute commercial breaks, 24: Live Another Day is much better than anyone could have expected, and promises to bring some zing to TV's spring.

Jack indeed returned in the show's debut episode Monday night, reminding me of all the reasons I used to devote an hour a week to the action-packed show.

The details are no more believable or credible than they ever were. But since when did any of that matter? The result is still pretty entertaining.

Let's hope that the shorter season will allow the writers to keep it simpler and stronger. After seeing the first two episodes, we gotta trust them.

Audience Reviews for 24: Live Another Day

Topical and action-packed, 24: Live Another Day is an exciting special event series. Former counterterrorist agent Jack Bauer comes out of hiding in order to prevent an assassination attempt on President James Heller during his visit to London; meanwhile a U.S. aerial drone is hijacked by terrorists and used to launch an attack on a U.S./British military convoy. The cast is especially good; as Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, William Devane, and Kim Raver return, joined by Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Tate Donovan, and Michelle Fairley. Additionally, the London setting gives the series a fresh look and feel (while still sticking to the overall format of the show). Also, the shortening to 12 episodes helps to keep the storytelling focused; with fewer tangents and extraneous characters. Grittier and more intense than past seasons, 24: Live Another Day is a riveting, high-adrenaline return to this groundbreaking series.

Live Another Day was a very good surprise to the 24 cannon. Not only has it corrected the dreadful last season, but it's one of it's best when it comes to develop it's characters into new, but somewhat predictable directions. Not just that, the reduced episodes works wonders, since every single minute is exciting, action packed and stressful while it lasts. I can't say I was ever bored in one of the episodes, it's that good. Still, the dialogue can get embarssingly cheesy and that soundtrack is still awful as hell.
