It might be surprising to some, but there are those of us who have never seen an episode of 24.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

I recommend the original series, at least through season 5.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Never seen "24"? Don't start unless you've got plenty of time on your hands.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Never liked the show, not a big Sutherland fan at all, but that's my personal opinion, on the other hand, my kids love "Full House" and "Fuller House#, they have pretty good ratings, don't know why the guy is knocking it.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

I wish they would recycle "Mr. Ed." Kellyanne Conway can play the talking horse.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Well the original 24 was full of overacting and cheesiness only captain JAMES T Kirk could rival and the plots were so ridiculous... don't have much expectation for the new but might attempt to was the first episode.

I liked the original and am ready to give the remake a chance.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

I like the original, but the plots in the last few seasons were ridiculous. The reboot that they did a couple of years ago wasn't pretty good and rekindled my interest in the series again. So far, after watching the first episode of this new series, it looks pretty good.

Cool. I am looking for something new to watch... I am back to rewatching TNG and X-files.

This looks better than "Designated Survivor" with Kiefer Sutherland which is really just a very mediocre "24" clone with Kiefer as leader and Maggie Q as pseudo Jack Bauer.

BTW: IMDB has 24 Legacy at a super high 5.4 out of 10.... and its not on Amazon Japan Video or Netflix Japan or Hulu Japan. TPB it is I suppose.

But wait.. with the ban on Muslims who will insert beefy husky voiced hero here be saving America from?

While realizing that "24" was very popular, I found it too unrealistic and paranoid to be enjoyable.

As for the Sutherlands, I find Donald to be much better than Kiefer.

Never wanted to watch it. Best I've seen in a looong time was True Detective season 1 only.

Down right disrespectful.

But wait.. with the ban on Muslims who will insert beefy husky voiced hero here be saving America from?

Pretty sure liberal writers will come up with something to continue numbing the masses!!

I don't mind if it's a reboot, as long as they've booted Sutherland.

Ex-CTU boss Ingram was Éowyn in The Return of the King in which she took out a nazgul 12 years ago, so she might survive this 24.

And Kiefer S. is one of its Executive Producers.

I started watching 24, lost interest after about 6 episodes in the first season.
