The aerial shot of the CIA headquarters is stock footage from The Bourne Identity (2002). The establishing shot of the CIA headquarters entrance gate is from Spy Game (2001), and is in fact a location in England, not the real CIA headquarters. See more »
You have caught me, so I am a dead man
You're only as dead as you wanna be, really, aren't you? so why don't you put the pin back in that thing and hand it over to the officer over there?
[assassin hesitates, then throws grenade]
Grenade! Get the grenade!
[as assassin flees]
Drop the grenade! Drop the grenade!
[assassin pulls another grenade, Jennings leaps on him, shoves the grenade under the assassin and it detonates]
Now you're a dead man.

There were two slightly different versions edited - one for the North American market, and one for the British/European market due to the different attitudes to swearing or violence in each market. See more »
It's 24, except its global, and takes many days, but still works.
I have just seen the first episode of the series, and it was compelling and well made.
It reminded me of watching 24, without the high speed tension, and localized setting. This is a global 24 that isn't really hour by hour. But it works well, very well. In fact as you're watching you can sit there and see it working very well. It doesn't just involve the Americans doing everything, which is a nice change. I guess I should organize this a bit better and go into detail about a few of the things I like.
First, I think recent events of the 9/11 commission and their ideas of making a centralized system, as seen in the show. It shows how the CIA and other agencies seem to dislike each other and in fact seems that it is quite like real life. These with recent events make it feel as if you could be watching the news of what could really be happening.
Second, it's nice to be in London, seeing MI5 and MI6, doing their own work, and the relationship between those to agencies, as well as US intelligence.
Third, the acting is quite good for a made for TV movie, and the development of each was well done. It is quite bloody, and has a nice amount of explosions. The camera work is nice and works well.
Fourth, and lastly, the story itself seems to be very well crafted. It fits in so well to today's society that it is quite capable of being a news broadcast rather then fiction.
In the end it is an all around well crafted TV "limited" series, and I will be back next Monday to watch it again! 9/10
