HUGE 24 fan as well, and so far I like it. It's fresh in the sense that the new main guy, Eric Carter, isn't a retread of Jack Bauer. Carter is an Army Ranger and not a CTU Agent, and he seems to have a moral compass...probably will hesitate before using any tortute. The new cast is good...Dr. Dre, Senator Bail Organa, and Eowyn. Looking forward to more episodes!
