Blue clock! :shock:

Maybe it's because my expectations were so low but I liked that. Too early to say how Hawkins is in the role but he did a decent job here in the first episode.

My expectations were also very low and it exceeded them. The main guy was quite good but all the other characters are pretty dull so far, and the dialogue is clunky.
I liked that they used splitscreen a lot, and they didn't feel the need to go massive with the plot or action scenes.
I feel the mole stuff is too obvious CTU boss woman who got the medal will be the mole and dodgy looking guy who got tasered is innocent.

There was some seriously ropey acting in that episode, even by 24's standard. Still, my expectations were firmly in check so I did enjoy it somewhat. Really wish it wasn't another middle eastern terrorist threat mind you. Nice little mention of

Edit: That second episode was rough as strawberry float. Calling it now, the blue clock is going to change to orange as it gets closer to night time.

This might be 24 at the stupidest it's been in a long time but I'd lying if I said I wasn't mostly enjoying it.

I did an actual face palm at that bit. It was so unnecessary and would have been better to bring him in alive for questioning.

Anyone still watching this? I just watched episode 9 and am so bored with this. There's not enough story here to sustain the amount of episodes (It's 12 right?). They really should have done the break Jack out of prison story thread. Have new characters, a black lead, fine, but make the story actually interesting.

Every single character annoys the strawberry float out of me by how stupid they are.

I'm watching it at UK pace, but yeah it's really not that great.

24 got more over-the-top each season looking for ways to shock or surprise viewers and they had a chance to start afresh with Legacy. Instead, they're rehashing things we've seen many times before only executed much, much worse. The main character is alright but he suffers from not being Jack or Tony and there's little to make you actually care about him and those close to him.

I'm still watching but yeah, it's become incredibly dull. Tony's inclusion has been completely pointless so far.

Thought the last few episodes have been pretty good myself, nothing incredible but on par with the last few seasons with Kiefer.
