Just got done watching the first two hours of the sixth season of 24, and I give it a B. Bill and Chloe were a little flat, Curtis was barely there, and so-far-somewhat-reluctant Jack didn't go medieval on nearly enough behinds. He only had one kill per hour, although they were both classics:
No. 1: He escapes captivity by playing 'possum, then -- when the thug leans in to check on him -- J.B. goes all Dracula on him.
No. 2: Jack dropkicks a suicide bomber out the back window of a moving L.A. subway car one second before the big ka-blooey.
Other than that, there were a couple of notable product placements early on:
1. After his escape, Jack steals a beater of a sedan that just happens to be equipped with a GPS-enabled Sprint phone that leads him to a key hideout. At the break, the first commercial is for ... a GPS-enabled Sprint phone!
2. Hamri Al-Assad, a former Middle Eastern terrorist who hooks up with Jack in Hour 2, rolls like all self-respecting former Middle Eastern terrorists roll: in a cute little silver Toyota Yaris!
I also saw a U-Haul truck at one point. And of course all the Fox News casts. What's next, a terrorist watching "American Idol" in his downtime?
