That's why I am hoping this shorter season will be better. They will have 12 less hours of mole hunting.

They've already hit a few cringeworthy 24 cliches in the first two hours, but with a shortened season we won't have a CTU director's unstable daughter commit suicide in the infirmary despite being their only patient or "is Jack's nephew really is son or not."

Don't forget the rationale they came up with for pinning it all on the drone pilot.
"Major Shepard revoked your weekend pass, so you decided to kill him with your drone. Makes perfect sense and we won't consider any other possibilities."
It sounded like there was a history of animosity between Lieutenant Tanner and Major Shepard, and the assumption seems to be that the loss of the weekend pass was Tanner's "breaking point."

They'll change things up this season by making everyone the mole and Heller is the mastermind behind his own attack.
Heller is the mastermind behind the attack on himself, but he can't remember because Alzheimer's! Oh man 24's gonna do some Memento shit here!

Anyone wanna bet the wife and daughter are related to the prime minister Stephen Fry?


Also somehow Heller will have to step down as President and Tate Donavan will take over(even if he is just the press secretary)

This is 24. No president has finished a full term since Palmer. Heller has nine VPs.

Ah yes, I forget. 24: where Presidents have a shorter term than Spinal Tap drummers.

I had to laugh at how the drone attack happened at the end of the first hour yet in 35 minutes Tanner had been arrested, all his files had been checked, evidence had been gathered, and the British (after finding out about it 10 minutes ago) accused the Americans of stonewalling an investigation. Which literally happened less than 30 minutes earlier. Gotta love 24!

An American president in Heller's condition addressing the British Parliament and taking questions...he would be absolutely eaten alive.

I enjoyed the first two hours very much.

Neither. He's the White House Chief of Staff.

Oh nice, the torture porn show is back.

Isn't there anything else that could be on TV rather than this trash?

Yeah, but it's just the way it is. This is the only thing on TV between 8 and 9 Central on Monday nights. All other TV stations, 100s of them if you have top-tier cable, just go completely blank during this period of time. Sucks, I know.

Re-watched both the episodes tonight and it looks like we can credit Jack with at least 2 deaths, maybe 3. Them being the lackeys in the flat the bad guys were hanging out in, one of them hung in front of the security camera.

I'll go ahead and credit him with 3 kills.
