24: Legacy

Directly following the Super Bowl the show “24: Legacy” had it’s series debut which is a spin-off to the popular show “24” that aired from 2001-2010. There has been criticism of the use of radical Muslims as the antagonists in the show, and I can definitely understand the fatigue that comes with Muslims always being portrayed as the bad guy and the terrorist in media. However, in the society that we live in now, someone will always be offended for being portrayed as the villain, no matter their race, religion, or ethnicity. Honestly, unless robots are the villains somebody will be upset, and I think that we need to be able to take these situations with a grain of salt.
