Season 7 was a rollicking good time, restarting the adrenaline drip that ran somewhat dry last season. I'm a big fan of Cherry Jones and am still grousing about how she lost the movie role in "Doubt" that she so sublimely played on stage. With the shadow of Mother Aloysius hanging over things, I spent the first few hours wondering whether Ms. Jones was miscast as Madame President. Where was the edge, the certainty, the petulance? But after a couple of terrorist attacks the cussing started, she was in her groove, and we were finally treated to a President whose grim grit even a testy nun could respect.
It's hard actually to discuss the story arc of a season of 24 without running into the spoiler alert problem. Suffice it to say that season 7 is in a new town with some new characters and some returning friends and foes. But the grander messages carry on from earlier seasons. Terrorists never sleep, so neither may heroes. There are many good people in government, but they just can't seem to keep the hatches battened down on their security systems, their classified information, and the whereabouts or plottings of their families and friends.Read more ›
But anyway...on to the show....
24 Season 7 will go down as one of the premiere seasons in the shows history. Maybe, from start to finish, the best since Season 1. After a lackluster Season 6, I think it was safe to say that the writers and producers of the show had a clear opportunity to start over and start fresh. And they did. What we got was a smart, tight, and extraordinarily acted season with the same raging action and plot twists but still with a different feel to it. By relocating out of L.A and into D.C. we got the chance to see Jack Bauer out of his element for the first time. At first I was skeptical of this, as many were. But after the first episode of the season I realized that my skepticism was for nothing. The move to D.C. was perfect and it brought so much to this season. And as we progressed from twist to twist, from villain to villain, the one thing that stayed apparent was that this season was absolutely brilliant. Nothing will ever compare to the originality of Season 1. And the show's creators know that. But they weren't trying to replicate that. Instead they were trying to bring us a season that we will remember, instead of tossing away like we did with season 6. Season 7 was a triumph and it's just another example of why we keep watching.
While 24 is an action show, its best moments for me are the pivotal ones in the lives of the characters we care about so much, especially Jack. (Like, in Season 2 Jack talking with Kim while flying the plane, then Mason showing up and talking to Jack about what Jack should really be doing with his life; or, in Season 3, Jack and Nina's final confrontation; or in Season 5, our last visit with David Palmer.) There are several such memorable moments in Season 7.
This season benefits from a great cast, including some returning favorite characters (Tony, Chloe, Agent Pierce, and a couple others) and some great new ones (FBI Agent Renee Walker, super talented & resourceful and a possible love interest for Jack in Season 8 - if he lives that long), and uber bad guy Jonas Hodges, played to a tee by Jon Voight.
Season 7 borrows the more successful plot elements from previous seasons, and does them well in a new context. Jack, once again, is working on the outside, with the help of Chloe on the inside. Jack, once again, must infiltrate a group of bad guys by pretending to be one of them, and must pretend to kill someone he - and we - care about to convince them of his loyalties. There's a well-placed mole, feeding intel to the bad guys and keeping them a step ahead of our hero. There's a Sherrie Palmer-like character in the President's daughter, and, finally, once again, a President with principles - like David Palmer.
I am hoping the writers try some different plot elements next year instead of rehashing the same formula.Read more ›
