Re: 24 returns as limited series

My guess is that half the seasons couldn't have a plot that lasted an entire 24 episodes and it's less realistic for two separate unrelated events occurring on the same day with one conveniently starting right after the other ended.

I think the real-time one hour = one hour concept is the more important part than it needing to last exactly 24 hours.
Still...the show's called "24". If it's gonna be 12, I don't suppose it'd be too much to ask that the miniseries be renamed? Say, "Half A Day: a Jack Bauer story" or something or other. (Let's face it--we all know who Jack Bauer is--that'll be enough to link it to the 24 universe.) Because given a show called "24"....
