Storyline

Four years after Abu Fayed's reign of terror CTU has been disbanded by forces inside the government. Jack Bauer is facing questions in a US Senate hearing for actions he took in the pursuit of justice in addition to being fingered as the fall guy for all of CTU's mistakes. The FBI's counter-terrorism squad learns of a plot to cripple the nation's computer infrastructure when they figure out that security expert Michael Latham has been kidnapped. Written by Derfel85

Meet the new show, same as the old

Premiere episode's as bogged down by setup as much as any other, but then again, things are also as shaken up as they've ever been. D.C. setting (hey, they finally got out of L.A.), a madame president in the White House, and CTU discredited and dissolved. An effective repudiation of the show's flair for torture if ever there was one. But the FBI standing in for CTU means different faces for essentially the same jobs. The best thing about this episode is Annie Wersching (Agent Freckles) who's a good counterpart for Jack.

What's frustrating about this is the demonizing of Jack for his tendencies toward aggressive interrogation. The FBI look down on him, as does a Senate subcommittee (led by Kurtwood Smith, thus completing the "RoboCop" homage started in season 5) . . . yet they need him to fix this mess in the allotted time.

The other misfire is Tony Almeida as the bad guy (in full goatee, just to belabor the point). This robs his death of its emotional punch and reeks of desperation to come up with a credible threat.

7/10
