I think I liked this one just enough to keep watching. It did feel like 24. But the lead looks like he's 16 years old so that's kind've off putting.

it was a decent start, but nothing special. i didn't like the mole in the CTU thing, though. that has been done far too many times on this show. i think this show will work perfectly as a 12 episode season.

My hope is the mole isn't in CTU this time, that's why they mentioned several people knowing the secret.

This. She mentioned three people knowing the secret. I'm guessing it's one of the others, or even someone like her husband who found out.

Felt like 24 for the most part, but when watching another lead, especially one that looks so young, you realize what Sutherland brought to the role.

Disappointed Dave Barry isn't live blogging this time.

I quickly thought the husband could be in on it. I could actually deal with Smitts being the villain. Don't like him much as an actor otherwise. Always comes of as a real dick even when his character is supposed to be likable.

The whole gang setup seemed even more cliché than the mole story line.

But if anything, the Ben character is going to keep me from enjoying this more than I could otherwise. Not only cliché, but overacted.

But even with all that I still am glad I gave it a shot. They did a great job of capturing how it was to watch the first one with characters (and actors other than Keifer) that I didn't know anything about.

I'm also please that I said "Aloe" to this series as well. Even if it's not exactly Tequila Mockingbird.

I started watching

Not too bad, at all, does have the 24 feel and was quite exciting but with at this point in time anyway, lesser quality characters, maybe because we don't know them yet
