Still going strong,

This review is from: 24: Season Four DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I always dread each new season of 24 fearing that such a series just cannot continue to be so good. I need not have worried, as season 4 had me gripped right from the start.
There are some character absences the most notable being that of Kim Bauer, Jack's daughter. However there are new characters to fill the void, and without giving anything away - some welcome reappearances in later episodes.
The plot packs a great deal of action from the start, without the long drawn out build up of the previous series, with the usual formula of drama, deception and CTU.
Although I did feel my interest in the overall theme beginning to wane about three quarters of the way through, this was more than compensated for by the alternative focus on the private struggles of the characters.
24 is every bit as good as it always was, and I am eagerly awaiting season 5. Please buy this boxset (it is currently at a steal of a price on Amazon!!!) you will not be disappointed.
