Loved it.., but something felt off... it wasn't as great as I hoped it to be, at times it didn't even feel like 24, the tinkering with the ticker color & font didn't help either..., I wish Heller wasn't the President..., even Stephen Fry didn't impress... & thats where the main problem lies, even with a stellar supporting cast, its only Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub & Benjamin Bratt who look like they belong in the show/story..., the rest are just stuck, lost in between..., Michelle Fairley was great, but we only got to see her for some seconds..., hoping she saves the show. Not that it needs to be saved per se, but its unfair to have a show rest on one mans shoulders..., however f#@$ing good he may be, he cant be in every other frame... Gbenga Akinnagbe & Yvonne Strahovski are horrible, especially the former. Coming back to Bauer/Kiefer Sutherland, he certainly looks a bit aged, but at the same time he looks angrier & grumpier than ever, not in the mood for anything, well, other than saving the world for the nth time... As for the background score, it felt a bit wanting, in the first two episodes there was only one moment where the score was great, at other times it didn't feel like Sean Callery. And may be, its just the whole setting, there were times when I wished they were back in America. So was it worth the wait, totally if you are a fan of 24 like me, who loves Bauer, but if you are someone who just likes the show, then you will be disappointed.
