I gotta be honest.
Back in the day 24 was revolutionary for TV.
With all of the great TV since, it doesn't hold up.
I'm excited about this, but the bar is really high now for TV.
I agree with this, when 24 premiered over a decade ago there was no Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Mad Men, The Wire, Homeland, Breaking Bad and so on.
However the bar is not nearly as high on Network television.
