This is without a doubt the best TV news I've heard in a long time. I always said it was a terrible mistake to cancel the series. Since then almost every drama FOX has launched has been a failure. Why walk away from something good.
I loved the show, but while still mostly enjoyable, it was getting extremely repetitive and cliche ridden after that last peak in Season 5, so it was a good idea to shut things down when they did. That being said, I think the TV movie or proper film format (if they ever revive it) is definitely a great way to go for 24. Less time to fill with annoying and obstructive Division bosses, moles and double agents, endless torture, crazy presidents of the week, and cougar bait daughters.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
