We never expected to see him again. Like the cowboys in the old movies, Jack Bauer was supposed to just ride away before anyone had a chance to say, “Thanks for saving the world – again.” Because, of course, he doesn’t expect any thanks. He’s just doing his job.
But now he’s back.
24 has returned with another day for Jack to save the world. And for all his flaws, I still like having him around to fight the bad guys.
