I’m not really going to get into the new season of 24. I’ll allow Paul to dive into more detail about it when he chooses to do so. I for one need to focus on two things that I am noticing in the first two episodes.
The first is that Freddie Prinze Jr. is aging. He’s got a little puff under his eyes and just doesn’t have that same magical look he had while playing Zack in She’s All That. Hey he’s still a handsome dude but you can tell he’s getting a little stale. But that’s not what I was really thinking of. What’s with his on and off “accent?” Like is it a New York accent? Boston? And he goes in and out of it quite often. Honestly I have no clue what’s going on there.
Second, they HAD to yank his character right out of Speed. I mean really? Same hair cut. He’s always wearing gear that reminds you of Officer Jack Traven. And let’s not forget that these two look incredibly alike. I just never pieced it together until now.
In any event, I hope you’re all enjoying the new season (so far I don’t think it’s as good as last year but I’m willing to give it a few more weeks) and let’s keep an eye out on Prinze.
