After the in all fairness, poor Season 6, the 24 producers really needed to turn the series around and they have done very successfully in this season of 24. Season 7 introduces many new characters and they mix well with old one's, the stories are much better and the action top notch aswell. Jon Voight as Jonas Hodges is a particular highlight and the Starkwood story arc is fantastic. Unfortunatly however, the final 6 episodes of the season are not in tune with the rest of the season and are in all honesty fairly average. Yes there's still good action but the story goes right off track and a very bland villain is introduced. Nevertheless, the first 18 episodes of this season make it a very worthy buy and overall it's a great season of 24. Back on form.
