    I’m enjoying Taken but I’m not comparing it to the movie. I’m just seeing it for what it is and it’s pretty good. Still loving 24 also.

    Was last night’s episode of 24: Legacy the best if not one of the best of the series? Wouldn’t be great for the idea of a 24 theme park ride.

      I agree! It turns out last night’s episode was written by David Fury, so I’m not at all surprised it was good.

    The drop of Taken isn’t a surprise but they still are doing ok. 24? Not so much. With the FOX execs lackadaisical support of it yesterday I don’t think it will be renewed after all. Huge disappointment for FOX given the heavy promotion it got

      You can’t replace Jack Bauer. The lead actor simply doesn’t have the necessary screen presence to follow in Sutherhand’s shoes. Most shows end up being trial balloons for popularity. There is no real commitment any longer, which is likely why Sutherland opted for Designated Survivor. And I don’t think much of him in that role. It too got mediocre ratings.

    Taken feels to me like what 24 wants to/should be. I liked the first ep of Taken a lot more than I expected to. I have last night’s recorded to watch today. Still, 24 just isn’t 24 without Jack Bauer and Chloe and the rest and I miss that.

    • Wrstlgirl says:

      24 is awesome. Do I wish Jack and Chloe were there, sure, but this new cast is really bringing it. Last nights ep was ridiculously good.

    Curious if storm coverage in middle America affected ratings at all.
