A Double Cross and Danger to the Girls
30 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Talk about mounting pressures on Jack. First of all, things are not what they seem, as the plot involves plastic surgery and misdirection. One thing about this series, even if the outcome is to correct a wrong, so many are done in in the process. In just two hours about four plot elements have been raised. That's what makes this so intense (an in some cases a bit far fetched). There are so many players, but Jack Bauer is about as resourceful as one can be.
