Live Another Day, despite its cliched bond esque sub title, presents a slightly fresher take on the old 24 formula. Trimming the series by half and setting it in London as opposed to sunny LA was a canny move and helps revitalise a struggling series.

The usual set up's are there of course. Jack is in hiding, tempted out by a terrorist attack. The president brings him back into the fold and off he goes on his one man mission to save the world. It's fast and frantic as always and characters come and go and yes there is a mole. 24 would not be complete without a mole.

It is this mixture of old and new that makes the series work....JUST. It isnt perfect, and isnt going to erase the memories of some of the later seasons, but it is a step in the right direction. London makes for a nicely gritty and dangerous feeling location. Some of the new characters are easy to root for and some are not.

Get past the coincedences of everyone being in the same city at the same time and there is some fun to be had. The action is brutal and in some cases quite graphic. The terrorist plot to start with is quite intriguing but then descends into familiar territory with various factions involved at different levels.

The much mooted series ending was a bit of a damp squib considering what had gone before it but Fox isn't about to jeopadise its number one character!

When all is said and done Live Another Day will stand as one of the better seasons. Full of action and incident it is worth a look and with only 12 episodes it flashes by in an instant.

Just one word can sum up this season of 24; brilliant. I cannot begin how to describe just how much indifference I had when I heard that 24 was coming back. Sure Seasons 1 to 5 were brilliant and had some of the most gripping and thrilling episodes of any TV show ever but by the time Season 8 finished I was just so happy this show was cancelled. Season 6, 7 and 8 were just so bad (I won't include Redemption as I actually liked Redemption). The show in Seasons 6, 7 and 8 struggled to fill 24 episodes with enough action to keep you interested while also concentrating on some of the worst side characters ever. Instead of characters I actually cared about like Tony Almedia and David Palmer I was forced to watch characters I could care less about and also watch recycled plots.

24 Live Another Day has the brilliant advantage of having just 12 episodes to fill while also bringing back classic characters such as James Heller (last seen as the President in the Dark Knight Rises) and Audrey Raines. The show contains a lot less episodes which are basically filler as the writers don't have enough material to go forward with the story. Nobody gets caught in a bear trap (Season 2) although the show does contain the obligatory side characters and plots that somehow become important to the main story.

Simply put the new format works amazingly well and provides 24 with a much needed boost. If you expect the new format means that this show will somehow become more realistic then look elsewhere as the plots are just as ridiculous as ever. But unlike Seasons 6, 7 and 8 Live Another Day is ridiculously entertaining.

If you lost interest in Season 8 and are wondering whether to begin watching again then the answer is Yes.

I have not missed an episode of this series since the very beginning; and it was a reward to us Brits to get an adventure of our own in UK. The action was fast and furious as expected; and I delighted in Jack's novel way of dealing with Margot et al after de-activating the last drone. Pretty fair acting all round; although I doubt that MI5 would have announced their presence before entry!! Never mind!
it is perhaps in our best interests to allow the USA to regard us as lowly subjects; it is all the sweeter when they find us there when needed! The sub plot with regard to the London CIA station and Zoe is a bit confusing at times; but all in all an excellent return for Jack Bauer; Long May He Reign!!

I love the 24 series, especially the first 4 or 5. But I feel I have to rate this simply "OK" in terms of a 1 to 5 star rating. It's nowhere near the par of the first few series and if my biased opinion put this down as 4 stars it would leave a lot of buyers short changed based on my review. So 3 stars it is.

24 all got a bit silly towards the end and a bit too coincidental, and they've tried to rectify that a little in this series but without much success. The plot is sound, with good twists and turns and the usual "who-done-it" that 24 brings to the table. It's also worthy of Jack, but I strongly feel that bringing Jack back has been at the detriment of the rest of the remaining budget and the producer has had to cut corners with the rest of the actors and the special effects.

Not to mention this is twelve, not twenty-four episodes. I honestly was left completely aghast when the twelfth episode said "twelve hours later" halfway through it. I'm sorry but what were they thinking? We'd all just say "OK fine that's it then". Robbed!

So, on to the actors. A completely mixed bag, which is not normal of 24. There are some major parts that may as well have been played by wooden puppets. Thankfully Jack, the president, and a couple of others bring the average talent rating back up to watchable.

The final reason I've lowered my rating is the special effects. They simply shouldn't have bothered trying to use CGI - it's that bad. Think "Clint Eastwood in Firefox" bad and you're not far off. Very 1990's. Nothing would have been lost if they hadn't used CGI.

So, in conclusion the plot and the handful of decent actors save this from losing any more stars.
