Trivia

When Mark Bourdeau is looking at the computer files on Jack, he reads through a list of names of Jack's confirmed kills throughout his career at CTU. The 1st name on the list, is Ted Cofell. Cofell was the Serbian finance manager that Jack encountered during Day 1 of the original series. Though his name is first on this list, Jack didn't actually kill him. Cofell suffered from a heart condition that was exasperated by Jack's interrogation. His death was satiated by his own refusal to take his medication, which Jack offered to him. See more »

Not a huge 24 fan, but this series premier was pretty tight
6 May 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I never paid too much attention to the earlier incarnations of 24, but I've been loving a show called "Orphan Black" on BBC America, and so I'm watching more action-spy-thriller type TV lately. And so, looking for more spy thriller action, I checked this out last night. Oh yeah, this review covers both of the first _two_ episodes shown consecutively on the Monday May 5, 2014 premier. And also, I will likely dump too many spoilers for you, if you live and die on the plot twists. Beware.

Overall, this was a well-made, interesting, and well-balanced sort of ensemble action show. The blend of character back story and thriller plot line was well-conceived, laying out characters and plot thoroughly, never getting overly complicated with the story, nor too deep into individual demons and motives and such. I love, love, love the character of Kate Morgan, who is smoking hot, and very physically large and fit, and very believable running around with a pistol in her hand. We learn right away, that she is damaged goods in the spy world because she didn't realize her own husband was a traitor, selling secrets to the enemy. So how can she be a good/trustworthy spy if she didn't even know she was sleeping with the enemy? She's being sent back home to the U.S., in disgrace, from her CIA post in London, when suddenly an ultra-dangerous, most-wanted rogue agent shows up in London, simultaneous to a visit from the U.S. President. Huh oh. This could be trouble. Our heroine will get one last chance here to prove she's actually a good spy, by taking down the badass rogue spy.

From there the roller coaster begins, and we get some evil elements who have hacked their way into the U.S. military assassination drone control network and plan on using a hijacked drone to kill the president. But the CIA guys don't know that yet, they're just chasing this rogue agent around assuming he's the one who's planning on killing the president... In a nice twist, one of the evil hackers has a seemingly ditzy girlfriend, who turns out to be a very heartless and deadly deep-undercover assassin. Fun! Then there's these other hackers who are helping the rogue agent track down the evil hackers (see, he's trying to save the president, not kill him). These guys are a stereotypical band of hipster dipwads, mostly good for comic relief. And oh yeah, the president is dealing with the onset of alzheimers, and in an early seen tells a story where he mixes up Franklin Roosevelt with Teddy Roosevelt. Huh oh. Is the free world in jeopardy because the president can't keep his Roosevelts straight?

Anyway, it's familiar and formulaic, but all the performers sell their characters very well and keep you interested. The production values are extremely high. It's glitzy and glossy and gritty all rolled into one--easy on the eyes and ears, and easy to follow, which is always a trouble area for this sort of show. The story will probably remain interesting if they emphasize the Kate Morgan character proving herself, and the villain girl who posed undercover as some eastern European bimbo in order to stay close to a key evil hacker dude, and when he starts to veer off course, jabs a stiletto in his ear and twists. Yikes! I forget the character's name, if they even said, but she's well on her way to super duper villain-hood! In fact, they could just make this a cat and mouse show focusing almost entirely on the disgraced CIA girl vs. the evil British assassin girl, and it would probably rule the ratings. As long as they keep the story tightly on top of those two, I'll keep watching.
