24’s Legacy

I am so conflicted about this one.

On the one  hand: YES, MORE 24, BWAHAHAHAHA

On the other hand … WHERE’S MY JACK BAUER. I WANT BAUER BACK NOW! THERE’S NO TIME!

Anyway, again, another terrorist attack is coming to United States soil. Because it’s 24.

After killing an Osama knockoff, the Rangers from the mission have been targeted by not-Osama’s followers. With the help of Eowyn (Miranda Otto, “Lord of the Rings”), he’s going to strike back. Here, Eowyn is used to run CTU, but may not be the future first lady for Jimmy Smits.

Cons: Our lead looks like a kid. He could be the brother of Jax from Berlanti’s Arrow-verse. He’s supposed to be an officer, with a wife and family? What happened to the veteran?  Oh yes, and least I forget, WHERE’S JACK BAUER? … oh, wait, he’s producing.

Pros: It’s more 24, with several solid actors, even some bit players are interesting.
