Re: 24 returns as limited series

Yay! I miss 24. All my favourite shows have ended now; The Wire, Dexter, Breaking Bad. It seems to take an eternity for a season of Mad Men, Game of Thrones, or True Blood to get made, but they're only 12 episodes per season. Sigh.

I've heard good things about True Detective, which seems like it might appeal to you, although I haven't watched it (yet). And Better Call Saul is airing sometime this year, I believe.

Mob City also seems like a good investment so far.

Mob City was very well designed and shot, really beautiful looking and atmospheric, great if you are a fan of Noir. The plot was a little lacklustre though.

Re: 24 returns as limited series

I've only seen one episode so far, so judgement must be reserved.

Meanwhile Attack the Block's John Boyega has also joined the cast. He signed to play Jesse Owens a few days ago - he's having a good week this week!

^ That 24 trailer was awesome! Chloe looked like she could kill someone with her death stare! She looked more scary than Jack, lol!

Chloe with the Dragon Tattoo.

Gee, do you think it's set in London? Because the symbolism was a little too subtle to pick up. All they needed was Mary Poppins gliding in on her umbrella while firing an Uzi to complete the scene.

Saw that commercial tonight. Utterly awesome, Chloe looked bad-ass and ready to take names!

Re: 24 returns as limited series

It's hard to tell, but 24 has actually advanced so far ahead into the future that Jack is fighting Khan after he blew up Section 31... err, I mean CTU: London to stop Admiral Marcus... err, I mean Christopher Henderson's future clone. In that span of time, there have been 348 new Presidents of the US. That's the reason they're wearing black leather... because THE FUTURE.

I know they say 24 took place in a "perpetual now" but that's just ridiculous because either the previous season(s) didn't happen (which obviously they did since their events took place and had impacts on future seasons) or the previous seasons got pushed further and further into the past. Which makes a lot of what happens in the earlier seasons harder to grasp and even possible between technology and social politics.

I forget right now what year it "was" when 24 ended it's run but I think it was in 2015 or 2017, a few years ahead of the actual year at the time. So depending on how much time has passed between the series and this the gap may not be very big.
