24 - Day 8 [IT IS FINISHED]

Breaking News

The Eighth Season of 24 will be its last, as the show has been cancelled. However, it is now heading to the big screen!

---

Who's coming back to television for another round of ethical dilemmas and killing terrorists?

JACK BAUER, THAT'S WHO.


So, Season 8 is here. The premiere is Sunday, January 17th on FOX. Notable changes include:
  • Jack is a Grandpa now
  • CTU is back and better than ever
  • Takes place in New York
  • STARBUCK

Some things that aren't likely to change:
  • Terrorists will be killed
  • Dudes will get tortured
  • CTU will have a mole
  • TELL ME WHERE THE BOMB IS THERE'S NO TIME

And here is the obligatory trailer to pique your interest:

[URL=""]Season 8 Promo[/URL]

There's a pretty good chance that this will be the final season of 24, with the saga wrapping up in a feature-length movie at some point in the near future. Let's all hope they go out with a bang.

As far as spoilers go, I used to be really anal about using spoiler tags, but I've come around to agree with the people who think they're more trouble than they're worth. Bottom line, if people are in here reading this thread and you haven't watched the most recent episode, don't expect everything to be wrapped in spoiler tags. My only request is that, if you have any information beyond pure speculation for future episodes, please put them in spoiler tags and label them as such. Otherwise, don't worry about using them.

    The action was alright I guess, but it hasn't done anything to convince me that they're going to do better any better than last season.

    You could try Hulu, or maybe one of the unmentionables.

    Or you can buy the DVD when it comes out next week.

    I was a bit confused...

    Still, fuck you Fox for teasing us and then making us wait nearly two months for the season to start.

    People who don't have man crushes on Jack Bauer are weird, and shouldn't be allowed to marry, especially not in California.

    Too soon?

    Anyway, I liked Redemption, and look forward to the new season.

    Also; odd regarding Redemption's last seconds:

    According to the OP, no. Even countries far behind the official releases should've had Season 1-6 by now, or at least plenty of time to get the DVD's.

    I've seen them do silent clocks for all sorts of shit. I was watching the first season a few weeks ago and they pulled out a silent clock while Terry was walking away from the car crash. I am pretty sure this is when it happened. Were they just trying to fool us then?

    The only silent clock in season 1 is at the end, when Jack finds Teri.

    I think every season has one silent clock but I can't be completely sure.

    I mentioned this in another thread..but, a couple years ago I got the flu and hallucinated that I was Jack Bauer and had to go and save Tony...It didn't help that I had a mexican guy in my apartment down the hall who kept saying the name Almeda for some reason....

    Hey so I haven't watched 24 in a few years, what was that one season that everyone liked where it was like all action all the time and less retarded drama? I was thinking I'd Netflix it

    I think Jack ripped a dude's throat out or something

    If you're looking for an even slightly decent story, don't bother.

    Otherwise, it's season 6.

    He bit a dudes throat out... in the first episode.

    This is my sig.
    There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

    Eh, 24 has always been pretty stupid

    I watched it to see Jack Bauer beat the shit out of bad guys and shout "THERE'S NO TIME WHERE'S MY DAUGHTER" a lot

    They're bringing back
    Spoiler:

    But they can't bring back NINA? ... Tch.

    I will always hold that it would be interesting to reintroduce Nina. Maybe the last few years she's been recovering from the number Jack did on her, sequestered away from view by the government because - zomg twist - she was actually undercover the entire time. Oh em geez, how would Jack deal with the fact that Nina had to kill his wife for her cover and the good of the country?!...

    Stupid. But not any more stupid than 24 has been.

    Slightly different, but only barely. Tony died in his arms, but was immediately whisked away. It's plausible that he was revived.

    Jack shot Nina in the face while she lied prone.

    So I watched Redemption again last night to make sure I'm caught up for Season 7, and though I must admit I wasn't crazy about it when I watched it back in November, I had a much more positive view of the show after watching it last night.

    Less than a week!
