Apparently, Oded was on tonight's episode of 24: Legacy...and I knew nothing about it! :gahwarrior:

Huh, and I stopped watching after the second episode because I felt like I'd seen it all before... I didn't expect a lot of originality but I did think there'd be at least a little bit of something. Guess I'll start again!

My other favorite actor, James Morrison played CTU's boss Bill Buchanan back in seasons 4-7 more than a decade ago. Wish he and Oded had been on at the same time - that'd have been heaven  :banana: :bouncydrool:

I know Oded wouldn't be appearing in any subsequent seasons, but 24: Legacy has been cancelled.

I'd have been surprised if it was renewed  :icon_confused: It was competently produced and acted and looked, if not great, at least your standard tv fare, but it aped every. single. thing it did from the original, without adding anything of its own to expand and deepen the universe.  After finishing the last episode of the season and liking a few aspects of it (Oded and a few other actors I always enjoy seeing), I just couldn't think of a single thing to really justify it's existence, and ended up wondering what was the point  :ambivalence:

I never watched the original series, so I can't make any comparisons. However, I was only tuning in to the show because of Oded. I really like Miranda Otto too (and how ironic that I'd always wanted Oded and Miranda to act together in something), but not even she could make the show good enough for me to watch. Like you, I'd have been surprised if it'd been renewed because after the way everything ended, I really couldn't see it going on anyway.

The only thing I'm worried about now is because it's a one-season Fox show, if it'll be released on DVD/Blu-Ray. I'll be so upset if it isn't!  :2153_wailing:
