Love this show, its drama is tense and strong characters.
30 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It really is an older Jack Bauer as the President. He doesn't need a gun anymore, but his moral compass is just as strong. His character is learning what it means to have power and manipulate people to do what is needed.

Its only been two days since the incident, so I guess its to early to have any answers. However I think an inside job has to be the obvious solution for how it happened, which will probably be addressed in the future.

So far I love this show and recommend everyone to watch it on Netflicks.
