Katee Sackhoff's outfit was ridiculous for work, hot, but ridiculous.

Indeed.

Not sure if I like that character though. We'll see what kind of story she brings with her.

Looking at her and thinking Starbuck probably doesn't help.

A good start to the season.

The blonde's dress and hair didn't bother me but I didn't like how the Iranians the folks from the Middle-East were speaking English instead of Persian their native tongue. I think in past seasons they had subtitles?

Solid debut, overall

Looking forward to tonight!

They've had subtitles for terrorists before, I can't remember any instances of officials speaking in foreign languages though.

Was that Tommy Cheeseballs from True Life: Jersey Shore playing the cop beating the shit out of Jack?

Damn ladies and gentlemen, Renee Walker is now the new Jack Bauer. Worse even, the hacksaw bit in Day 2 was on a dead body.

Loving this so far, I just think they need more conflict for President Taylor though to keep her as an emotional connection on the show.

The whole Starbuck and her ex-boyfriend subplot is not working at all.

It's only a small side-plot, it's not bothering me that much while everything else is top notch.

It appears to be the whole reason Starbuck is on the show.

and they are weaving it with the Chloe story line too.

It just seems so silly that a CTU agent (or person) melts into a little small town, waitress type because some old boyfriend pops up.

But that's because you're not on a mission to dislike everything you consume, so there's that.

I'm not sure if it was their finest opener or not, but it was a refreshing change of pace. Not much firework (at least, not as much as in the previous seasons). So yeah, I do hope that there'll be a bit more character development this time.

Though I have to say some stale elements are already popping up. The corrupt/inadequate employee (in this case, Dana seems to be inadequate), the clueless manager and the bad guys being in the same city as the president is. Then again, this is 24. Dammit!

It'll be interesting to see the Renée Walker storyline develop. She seems to be a Jack Bauer on steroids at the moment. I suspect she will have some kind of breakdown later on.
(Come to think of it, that did go awfully fast. She was introduced at the beginning of episode 4. Then gave info to CTU, had a briefing, went back undercover again and saw off a thumb all within 1 hour. Whoa!)

But, I was pleasantly surprised to see that 4 episodes (instead of 1 or 2) have aired already in the first week. Can't wait to see the other 20.
