Having only recently begun watching 24, I am yet to sample the delights of season 4 and beyond but I'm not fussed- because season 3 is faberoo.
The storyline is extremely captivating and very, very fast-paced and it gets you hooked from the first episode, making it impossible to watch just one episode at a time.
A couple of new character additions- namely Chase, the new field agent, and Chloe, the token CTU computer whizz -are absolutely brilliant... Chase is the proverbial spanner thrown into the works of the Bauer family whilst Chloe's sheer honesty of everything is hilarious, as well as cringe worthy.
Any Heroes geek will certainly notice Mr Zachary Quinto's presence in CTU- a welcome bit of eye candy, as well as quite a solid character throughout his one season appearance.
However, my favourite, favourite thing about this season is the storyline between my two favourite characters- Tony and Michelle. Seriously, towards the end of the series, I could not bring myself to press the stop button because it is so gripping!
