24: What happened to you...

After what felt like a fairly poor bridge (24: Redemption), Day 7 finally arrived this evening.

Jack's on trial for his work at the now mothballed CTU and then crisis hits and the FBI need him. New characters everywhere - somehow all the pieces and the people will fit together. The big story is that Tony is bad - which is all over the trailers. Jack leaves his trial to join up with the FBI and his new sidekick FBI Agent Renee Walker. (All of which you can discern from the trailer).


Without wanting to give away anything else, this was a promising start in which perhaps we get to explore why Jack uses torture, how being involved in CTU effects people - both with Jack and Tony - and how we can reconcile Jack's world with the real world. Why has Tony turned? What future does Jack have...
