24 – Day zero

24 - Day Zero

Anyone else watching 24 – Day Zero, the highly amusing Flash prequel to everyone’s favourite preposterous Fox thriller? It’s worth tuning into an episode just to see the slightly rubbish looking animation. But it also does a relatively good job of recreating the feel of 24 in a short amount of time; they even got Kiefer Sutherland to voice Jack. It’s also filling in various gaps about how Nina and Jack got together before Day One.

I feel a little shortchanged they couldn’t get Sarah Clarke and Xander Berkeley to voice Nina Myers and George Mason, but I imagine that all that deodorant advertising sponsorship money can only stretch to one of the original actors.

Give it a whirl if you need to divert your attention for a while.
