Nope, I haven't seen it yet, but it's on the emergency viewing list.
I'm up-to-date with the previous 192 episodes of 24, so it shouldn't be that difficult to get into the new ones. This time set in London, albeit with an array of almost entirely American accents, judging by the trailers.
Red bus? Check.
Red phone box? Check.
Gherkin in skyline? Check.
Union Flag? Check.
That's just the opening 2 seconds of the trailer.
Tube train? Check.
American TAC teams moving around the heavily CCTV'd capital undetected? Check.
Geographical inaccuracies? I can't wait.
Phone call to Spooks' Harry Pierce? Unlikely, but would be a great moment.
Different greyer colour grading for the London external shots? Copy that.
