I'm a huge fan of 24 so I've been axiously awaiting the premiere of the show since the last season ended. After the first two hours I have to say I'm fairly impressed as the show has done a great job of laying out a decent framework for the rest of the season. It also includes one of Jack's best kills ever which I won't ruin because it's simply too awesome for words.

Sure the show still strains credibility but it is one of the best guilty pleasures on TV right now. The only problem I have is that there are just too many recognizable actors playing the smaller roles in the show. I mean Kumar has a featured role this season along with the kid from Sky High and a bunch of other actors from movies and television shows.
