Let’s face it, all you really want to know is this: Is “24: Live Another Day” the good kind of “24” or the not-so-good kind?
Rest easy: Going by the first two hours, this new incarnation of the show exactly as “24”-ish as you’d want it to be. Jack is back, he’s as monosyllabic as ever, and damn it, he doesn’t have time to explain himself to you!
Luckily enough, there are other characters around to supply exposition, so that even if (like me), you checked out some time before the show reached the end of its previous eight-season run, you’ll be up to speed in no time. All you really need to know is that Jack is a fugitive on the run when “24: LAD” begins, and, of course, there are a bunch of bad guys who will not cease and desist with their eeee-vil shenanigans.
