“Can an everyman like Jack exist only in this decadent superpower?”
This is an article/review of the first four episodes, which I’m linking to for one reason, because while i’ve been buried under positive reviews of the first four episodes, I hadn’t read one bad one, until now. Troy Patterson of Slate.com seems from this review to be throughly unimpressed by the first four hours, along with the general premise of the show, as he asks if a character like Jack Bauer could exist in any other countries popular culture but America’s.
Contains heavy plot spoilers for the first four episodes, so don’t read if you don’t want to know what happens. Also don’t read if you can’t stand people ranting about why 24 isn’t as good as we all think it is.
