Is this the first time we’re watching 24?
Right now, we’re watching Anil Kapoor oops President Omar Hassan, head of a Middle Eastern country, in the premiere of Season 8 of the TV series 24 on Fox.
Omar Hassan is in the U.S. for a crucial meeting with Madame President Allison Taylor.
And there’s a conspiracy afoot to derail the peace process.
Anil Kapoor has put in a decent performance. Thank God.
Imagine the humiliation to all desis here, if it had been the bozo Abhishek what’s-his-name playing President Hassan. We’d all have to wear a burkha tomorrow.
OK, the commercial break is over and we’re back to the drama on the screen.
Who knew there could be such tension in a TV series episode and plausible side stories too!
Folks, it’s 11PM EST and the show’s over, for today that is.
Overall, we found the Season 8 premiere of 24 slick and neatly executed.
All the actors did their parts well. And the plot moved along at a brisk clip.
Folks, if you are watching 24 on the East Coast, the season’s premiere continues at 8E/9C tomorrow on Fox.
We expect to see more of our Anil ‘President Omar Hassan’ Kapoor tomorrow.
