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.
An English character from an American film firing an Israeli gun?

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.
I think that 24: LAD is supposed to take place 4 years after season 8.

They should have had Colin Salmon as the British Prime Minister instead of Stephen Fry - a UK David Palmer. Though I'd like it even better if he was reprising his role as Charles Robinson from the Brosnan Bond movies!

Checking the series finale thread, it seems I determined that Season 8 took place in 2015 (and that's assuming Season 1 took place in 2000, the then closest presidential election year that wasn't in the future.) So if LAD (Is John McClaine going to be in this or something?) takes place four years after Season 8 then it's 2019 in the 24 universe. (Again, ignoring the 'perpetual now" idea from the show runners and assuming everything his progressed chronologically and the known gaps between seasons.)

Seeing this small trailer really has me excited, though I'm not sure how I feel about the threat being in England (and after watching the trailer I agree with Lo the British imagery was a little over the top. The Union Jack on the over-turned European-style car, the red English phone booth, hell where was the blue Dr. Who-ish police call box and someone on the sidewalk drinking tea?!

But Chloe did look intense and bad-ass. Loved it. Some are calling her akin to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." I think that's ridiculous. Given Chloe's mad computer skilz I'd call her "The Girl With the Penguin Tattoo."

And, well, since I by and large did them for most of the series. Dibs on the discussion thread(s) when the series starts.

Jack is so awesome that he doesn't even blink when his gun is going off right in his face and buildings are exploding all around him. Because blinking is for wussies, and Jack is in a perpetual staring contest with Satan.

Assume you're unaware that the lead in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was also a fairly accomplished computer wiz/hacker? Likely where a good chunk of the reference came from in the first place. Add in a complete lack of social/interpersonal skills, and there you go...

Re: 24 returns as limited series

^Hmmm I wonder what happened?

The 24 trailer was epic, IMO the best from the Super Bowl.

Personally, I think Jack Bauer should fight Prof. Moriarty and a group of Daleks in the new season. Only then it would be truly British.

Something I whipped up:



Chloe would make an awesome Companion.

Saw that commercial tonight. Utterly awesome, Chloe looked bad-ass and ready to take names!
Hopefully we were watching the same trailer. She looked injured and almost needing to be carried here. I agree about her stare, though.

Chloe always looks like she's injured and in need of being carried, whether she actually is (like this time) or not. That's her default Chloe face.

Besides, her badassery lies not in the physical realm but rather the virtual one, though she can layeth the smacketh down too when called upon:
