I am sure I am not the only Jack addict around these here parts. Waste value bandwidth discussing the new season, previous seasons, and why I am sounding like Herc...

This is all my mom talks about. I got her to watch it last season, and she'd always be calling me at college, asking if I was watching, and "if I just saw that!" I got her hooked, and now she won't shut up about it.

WHAT!?!?!?

I'd of been banned by now.

And you haven't haughtily dropped the fact that you have some spoilers but can't reveal them 'cuz you're essentially just a pr flack who can't bite the teets that feed him.

Someone start talkin' 'bout the show 'cuz 'Zo and I can do this all night...

OK, I'll start, avoiding spoilers, it looks like Jack will start the series, living his fake life very close to LA... All the other important characters are nice and close as well.
We will see plenty of old characters returning.
It appears the whole Chinese incident that was the set-up for Season 5, is either put on the backburner for the second half of the season, or in classic season 2 to season 3 fashion quietly ignored apart from some brief mention.

My big prediction for the season? I think the main bad guy will be revealed to be Edgar, who has been driven insane by the fact Chloe rejected him and is banging some new character.
Also CTU's need to follow government equality guideline means they are reduced to hiring hobbits...

24 is seriously the best drama on TV in a decade. I would sacrifice 100 Fireflies (wink wink) for a sixth season.

When was the last time there was a character on TV as cool as Jack Bauer?

It's all about the Jack Bauer Power Hour.
If they ever made a movie of 24, would they have to make it take place over two hours, or would the gimmick be blown? I guess then they'd have to call it 120 or something... heh

Assuming they ever tried to turn this into a movie, they'd go one of two ways: keep the real time element but limit it to two hours, or ditch the real time element and keep the 24 hours theme. I think the second one would be more likely since "24" is the brand everyone knows.

What I heard was that for an hour and a half the film would progress normally an until a huge event happens and the film goes to real time for the final hour.

I hope Jack has learned his lesson for the new season and has tightened up his perimeters and avoids secret staircases. In Season 4 they were the real villain of the show.

How many cheap escapes?

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Sources said Prinze is joining the cast of Fox's "24" as a regular, playing Davis Cole, a recently returned Marine who runs CTU Field Ops and wants to follow in Jack Bauer's (Kiefer Sutherland) footsteps.

I'm stoked it's back. I finally got round to watching the entire 7 seasons back to back over the course of about a month or so, it was harrowing viewing for first season but then it all became very unrealistic and silly but no less enjoyable. So I'm pumped to see what dice they are going to roll this season as to what is going to happen to Jack.


Development meeting: "This year Jack is going to looooosee..........*throws dice* It's a 6! *looks at chart*....It's a leg, oh my god, and he's going to lose it to......*rolls dice again*....that's a 4...*looks at chart* ...he's going to lose it to a midget from....*rolls dice one last time*.....Serbia!!! There we are jeapardy sorted, now go away and right the story around that."

I watched the the premiere, if for no other reason than to laugh. Seriously, this show has become the best "B" action movie around.

I loved when Jack had that dude in his apartment and was all "I'm retired" in a resigned and sober voice. Then he asks for the gun and once he gets it...he just TURNS. IT. ON. and screams at the dude. It was a laugh out loud moment, for sure.

Then, he fucking AXED a dude. I asked myself, at that point, "what more could possibly be jammed into this?" That was right about when the FUCKING BAZOOKA blew up the helicopter.

Oh, and guess what? I still haven't mentioned Freddie Prince, Jr. OR Bubba Gump Shrimp.

Comedy gold.

But last year, I couldn't make it past the 6th or 7th hour, either. Let's up this

decent enough premiere. best moment was definitely when jack bauer AXED that guy that question. now i'll have to start referring to him as AX BAUER.

i can tell we're going to have some painful soap opera stuff with starbuck. i really wish this show could figure out that no one likes the lame soap opera filler, just give us the action and cut the studly out.

tonight's installment looks like things will get better thanks to the return of Freckles McTits

i thought the jack sack ax attack would be tough to top... but that last episode of Saw 24 kinda did it. freckles mctits was probbly the best thing about last season. psycho freckles mctits will DEFINITELY be the best thing about this season.

also, it seems leoben and starbuck just can't seem to stay away from each other.

i think this season is off to a very good start, except for the idiotic starbuck subplot. i've found a way to enjoy this show again by basically accepting that it takes place in an alternate, completely implausible universe. someone needs to write a book or something called Rules of 24-Land, stuff about how in 24-Land you never have to piss or shit or eat, and you can drive from one end of a major metropolitan city to the other in 5 minutes, except when the plot needs you to be stuck in traffic.

other Rules of 24-Land:

- in 24-Land, you can get a job with a major government counter-terrorist organization without undergoing a background check that would reveal you have a fake name and a secret past
- in 24-Land, any secrets or skeletons in your closet will always come to a head during or right before a major terrorist attack

Not a bad start to the season. Last season is going to be really hard to top. Katee Sackoff is one of the worst characters in the history of the show. I hope she gets attacked and killed (or at least badly mauled) by the cougar, who's now the second worst character. I'm ready for her boring subplot to be over with already. I knew the brother was a baddie from the second I saw his ridiculous hair. (Weird hair must run in that family). Prinze Jr isn't terrible, but I feel like they could have gotten a much better actor. Whose dick did he suck to get back in the limelight?

And great to see Freckles McTearytits back in the action. I honestly would have been fine with Jack dying and her taking over the show after last season. She's pretty strong. Cutting that guy's hand off was pretty intense.

Too bad to see Doug Hutchison go already. He wasn't bad at all. And does the director of CTU always have to be an idiot? He seems slightly retarded. He talks so slowly. FUCK! It's a crisis situation. We don't have time for you to sound out the vowels and shit!

Bonus points for having Jurgen Prochnow (sp?).

There's only a few characters that we have any real investment in anymore, and I think that's one of the weaknesses of the show,... having to meet a whole "new cast" each season. I'd like to see them build some characters that have some staying power and grow into characters that we'd like to spend a few years with, but other than Jack, Chloe, Sugartits, and Cherry Jones, I don't give a shit about any of these idiots.

And seriously, if at this point you have to ask "Who is Jack Bauer?" they should automatically kick you in the balls/vag and fire you on the spot. "Oh yeah, that guy that's saved the country countless times and testified publicly on Capitol Hill several times? Oh yeah, I forgot." Poor writing.

But I'm a fan, so I'll be sticking around. I've liked every season, even the "dreaded" season 6.

Agreed. But I already thought it felt a bit forced to have him there last season. I'd love to see him back, but I think it would feel forced to squeeze him in.

The list of people Jack can turn to in a pinch is down to about nil - Chloe is already on board, Tony's out and Bill is dead. As Elrond once observed - "our list of allies grows thin". Getting Agent Pierce back in the game wouldn't be as much of a stretch as it was to get Renee aboard. Last time we saw Aaron he was working in the White House....since the prez would have developed a deep trust for this most loyal and talented man, it would be logical that she might want to keep him around. I'm hoping.

I hope she gets attacked and killed (or at least badly mauled) by the cougar, who's now the second worst character. I'm ready for her boring subplot to be over with already. I knew the brother was a baddie from the second I saw his ridiculous hair. (Weird hair must run in that family). Prinze Jr isn't terrible, but I feel like they could have gotten a much better actor. Whose dick did he suck to get back in the limelight?


sarah michelle gellar's?

actually, the biggest surprise of the season so far is that mr. buffy-the-vampire-slayer isn't half bad. really, he doesn't have to do all that much, just run around looking concerned and stuff. he did a good enough job looking scared shitless when he thought that assassin was gonna blow off his head. it's a pretty generic character that we've seen before. the "young stud CTU agent who teams up with jack bauer" role is pretty much this series' equivalent of a red-shirt, except instead of beaming down to some unknown planet and dying, they end up getting blinded* or having a hand chopped off**. it will be fun to see what kind of disfigurement is in store for mr. gellar. hopefully it will be brutal enough to make up for scooby-doo.

* see ricky schroeder
** see that guy that kim bauer was dating who handcuffed himself to the biological weapon

now that the series is going all eastern promises on us, i sincerely hope there is a scene where agent freckles must fight off a bunch of russian mafia guys while naked in a public bath.

The last ten minutes last night were great. Hopefully Jack has to spend the next 8 hours or so reigning her in.

The redneck ex-boyfriend or whatever is a totally useless and distracting device. Perfect time to make a sandwich.

And once again, CTU has the worst hiring guidelines.
