First, watch it:
Yea, I know, Kiefer refers to the UK but it's all the same, trust me.
My thoughts below the fold:
Now, to me it was worth it to see that red-headed FBI agent (especially if it's the one played by Jeanene Garofalo) have this exchange with Jack:
FBI Agent: Do whatever it takes, torture him if you have to.
Bauer: I’m going to enjoy this.
You *KNOW* that line would make her blood boil.
In all seriousness, it looks like we've got a really good season in store for us come January. Of course, as Blogs4Bauer noted, last season's trailer made it look really good too. Yes, the first four episodes were probably the best the show's ever put out, but the rest of the season, while still better than most of the crap on TV these days, was pretty bad by 24's standards.
As far as Tony, I was surprised enough when I heard that he was back (from the dead, nonetheless) so it was kinda nice to see Jack as surprised as me.
Good guy turned bad. And not just any good guy, but one of Jack's closest friends. One of the few guys who'd probably be able to guess Jack's every move.
Anyway, it looks like an interesting plot. Very techno-geeky and different than the kind of threats we're used to seeing on 24.
I've got a good feeling about it.
