Just finished binge watching the season and pretty disappointed tbh. It lacked the tension/intensity of a typical 24 season....it just felt so by the numbers. The ending felt rushed and contrived.

I'm not fussed either way if it gets renewed for a 2nd season. I'll watch it if it does, on the hope it is better than S1 but will not miss it if it doesn't.

Last episode was definitely underwhelming especially comparing to the one last week, but I'll give it a pass because I know they had to wrap things up. They did a good job of setting things up for the next season which I definitely hope comes.

I was totally caught off guard by the whole 12 hour fast forward thing until I remembered this season was only going to be 12 episodes.

2018: "And we were in the writers room writing this generic janitor character the heroes meet in episode 2 when we had this great idea. I mean genius. Let's make the janitor Jack Bauer. You know, by not telling the audience how he got back from Russia and have him not really act like Jack Bauer, we could inspire the audience to want to watch this character they've become accustomed to act and behave totally differently, performing run of the mill tasks whilst the new guys shine in the spotlight"

Fuck off 24 Legacy writers.

I feel for the cast, I think they could be good, but they were robbed of a good story.

The whole season was just completely uneventful. Old 24 would be throwing in twists and turns every episode and kept you on your toes, this didn't have anything interesting happen all season.

They simply don't have the time to do that with his cut down format though, and they probably don't have the ideas to do a full season.

First half was a little uneven but the second half has really kicked into high gear. One thing that just sort of occurred to me at the 11th episode..the real time aspect has meant essentially nothing this season. There's no eminent bomb or deadline, etc. thus far so it really has just sort of played out like a regular show would. There are references to time and things of that nature, but it's rarely played an actual driving force. Kind of a shame really.

Either way, I've been very pleasantly surprised as I said with the second half. Looking forward to seeing how things finish up.

Edit: Finished the final episode -- I enjoyed it. I think they closed out the season well. I hope it gets picked up for another one.. I think they found their feet. Glad there were minimal moles and that nonsense was mostly not an issue.
