24: Complete Season 7Luke
In its seventh year, 24 was running the risk of becoming another show that was past its expiration date. Season six, to be generous, was tepid. Plots were rehashed, Jack Bauer's extended family were brought in as a desperate attempt to shake up the plot (with complete disregard for any kind of plausibility) and the format was starting to grow tired. It's with great relief that I can say that season 7, after the appropriately titled TV movie 'Redemption', managed to inject fresh life into the show.
The change in location from LA to DC served as something of a reboot; there were only so many times Los Angeles could be targeted by the world's terrorists. Jack starts the season under scrutiny for the very actions that have saved the day so many times before - a sharp nod to the heavy criticism the show has faced for its over-emphasis on torture. As the day grows older, Jack is thrown back into another threat facing the nation, made more personal by the dark return of an old character loved by fans.
Although the season does sink back into some of its old habits, the story is gripping and the pacing as tight as ever. For the first time in years, it really feels like the story was plotted out with care prior to production. Where the season really shines is in its characters. The fiery newcomer Renee Walker is the shining light of this season: a flawed woman struggling to toe the line between what she's told to do and what she believes is right (which, invariably, is aligned with Jack). Her story is one of the most interesting of the year, ending in a powerful and intriguing cliffhanger.
The introduction of Alison Taylor as the first female President breathes more new life into the story. After six years we're finally free of the Palmer presidency, a story which was growing far too tired. Cherry Jones brings a humble gravitas to the role, a woman with strong values and principles which even at times outweigh her devotion to her own family - leading to several powerful scenes as she struggles with her husband and scheming daughter - one of the slyest characters the show has seen in years.
In spite of its virtues, it has to be said that by now, the show is preposterous. In Washington DC it's apparently even quicker to get from one side of the city to the other. Of all the grave problems facing Jack Bauer, traffic will apparently never be one of them. Think too hard and the timetable of the day's events will seem far too convenient to be at all possible, the plot twists so much it risks snapping and Kim Bauer makes a return as the woman who can't go twenty minutes without being kidnapped.
But that's all part of the fun. 24 persists in being one of the most relentlessly addictive and consuming shows on TV. Its twists come thick and fast, packing a good emotional punch from time to time, and every cliffhanger leaves you wanting just.. one.. more.
Bring on season eight!
N.B.: Difficult perfectionists such as myself should note that through some kind of witchcraft, Fox have managed to cram all six discs of this DVD set into a single DVD case. Although a miracle in engineering, the case won't match up with the other box sets on your shelf. Be warned!
