This 24 is already the 24iest 24 that's ever 24ed.

I can't wait for Jack Bauer to show up in The Expendables IV.

The President is Reagan-ing!

The sub-plot with what's her name really ruined the last season for me, especially since the focus was so much on her and that the creators of the show literally said they had no idea what to do with her, had no idea why audiences hated her so much and then it struck them to make her mole/double agent.

Even though a)having a character on a show you don't know what to do with is poor writing, b)audiences hated her because her and her personal drama was soaking up way too much time and her trouble with her boyfriend or whatever was just dumb, we tune in to see Jack Bauer, dammit!, c) WHAT?! you thought making her CTU's umpteenth mole was a good idea?!
It also completely contradicted everything that came before with the character. But I guess the writers thought if you took sucky and added a new sucky, everything about that character would cease to suck.

Same thing happened in season 5 where the whole "I'm really a villain" turn was a contradiction, but people really enjoyed that one.

Plan your turncoats in advance, 24!

CTU is renting their current digs from the Ninja Turtles.

Ignoring the obvious, another 24 trait.

I like how the President is riding in a Mercedes limo. Uber American!

In 2018 the American Auto Industry didn't make it though the fiscal cliff very well.

A slow start but I like the idea of having 24 back.

I'm one of the few who actually liked the Katee Sackhoff subplot and couldn't see why others hated it so much. Nothing but frenetic non-stop Jack Bauer action is boring and for me that's what dragged a lot of the show down. It was nice to have a side story that you at least hoped would intersect with the main plot at some point.

The thing was it literally came out of no where, it was a complete 180 from what the character had done/said at the point and the show runners themselves admit they didn't know what to do with her but then thought it was "perfect" to make her a mole. A trope the series had well overused.

Re: 24: Live Another Day. Discussion Thread. (Spoilers)

What year is this supposed to take place in? With all the craziness of the first 8 seasons, that I rarely watched but get the point, they never took place one day / year after another. So is this like 2032 now or something?

Roughly 2019 if we assume the first season took place in 2000, an election year.
