Jack is back and I’m feeling great.
After something like 15 months, which actually seemed like 15 years, “24” had its seventh season opener Sunday night.
And, what a great 120 minutes it was.
Even though Jack Bauer, former Counter Terrorist Unit agent (the agency is defunct) threatened to stab a guy in the temple with an ink pen, this opener seemed to keep violence to a minimum, which should appease critics who thought there was too much of it in the past.
For me, there is just something about getting caught up in the world of Jack Bauer. I have friends who have given up on the show because they feel it’s predictable.
There are times you can guess what’s up next and be right. But I find a lot more surprises around the corner than certainties.
It’s ironic that I won’t commit to TV mini-series because I feel I won’t be able to find the time.
But, in six seasons of “24” I’ve only missed watching one episode as it aired. Of course, it was taped for later viewing.
Now you know where my priorities are.
