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:

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.

    Hmm...I thought I'd fallen behind on 24 because I stopped watching during the end of Season 6, but since it's been on hiatus I guess that only means I've missed a few episodes. Maybe I can give it another chance with this season. D:

    Yeah...once the terrorist plot was mostly resolved in Season 6, and it looked like the Audrey plot was all that was left for the last 5-6 episodes, I stopped watching. :P

    Yeah, you didn't miss much. I can barely remember what happened, except that it was dumb.

    Season 6 really sucked overall. Despite that, I have high hopes for Season 7.

    FUCK I MISSED IT.

    The desire to deprive some of our citizens of their rights—economic, civic or political—has the same basic motivation as actuates the Fascist mind when it seeks to dominate whole peoples and nations.

    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.

    I am secure enough in my sexuality to say that I have a man-crush on Jack Bauer.

    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:

    I was so pissed when Tony didn't get a silent clock.

    We don't have to spoil former season stuff, do we?

    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.
