I managed to keep my streak alive of having watched every single episode of this show live in real time.

I thought it was solid if unspectacular. I figured they would have upped the ante a little more since TV has sort of caught up to them the past few years with shows like Homeland. But it felt more or less like every other season.

It's been so long now I can barely remember the players anymore. Jack and Chloe and the Hellers are old favorites of course, but I dont recall if we are supposed to know her husband or Benjamin Bratt's character.

The stick thin blond just struck me as annoying...I foresee a lot of tiresome noise with her until she eventually pulls her head out of her ass and gets on board Team Jack. At least they've only got 8 more episodes so that should speed things along.

The Dragon Tattoo stuff was laid on a little thick with Chloe but I enjoyed seeing them smack around the Assange-clone a little bit.

Super psyched to see John "Episode 7" Boyega as the Drone Pilot though, your star is rising, baby!

I watched this last night and thought it was pretty good.  I know when 10:00 rolled around and knew I'd have to wait another week to see more I was pretty agitated. 

I've missed seeing Yvonne Strahovski on a weekly TV show so it was good to have her on 24, but I don't know where they're going with her character and 24 does have a track record for doing some kinda stupid things with certain characters (pretty much anything to do with Kim).  Chloe's turn is kinda interesting, nothing in her CTU character ever suggested she'd go goth, though and the comparison to Dragon Tattoo seems kinda spot on.

Bratt and Donovan's characters are new.  I think it was just Jack, Chloe and the Heller's coming back so far.  I would definitely geek over an Aaron Pierce (Glenn Morshower) cameo though.

My wife doesn't care for "24" (mainly due to the torture stuff), but when she saw Yvonne Strahovski, she said she wondered if that was supposed to be Kim Bauer.
