24: Day 7 8:00AM - 12:00 PM - Discussion and Spoilers

Right now, hope and change has spread across the land. The hope we wanted has changed the hope we needed for the change we hoped. We can hope this change is hopeful if not we're due for another change. Oh. and I don't work for any people anymore so no one can double cross me... right? And I've no family so they can't be trouble and I just got off a long-flight from South Africa so I'm jet lagged as hell. My name is Jack Bauer and today is the longest day of my life.

The following occurs between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM.

Events occur in real time.

----

24 returns this Sunday! WOOO!!! There's a two-hour episode Sunday night and another two hour episode Monday night, we'll use this thread wo discuss both/all four episodes and then regular weekly episodes after that.

Until then, I guess we'll just warm up for some more bas-ass Bauer!

(Please wait until after Monday night's episode(s) to vote in the poll.)

So excited for its return! I gotta say, I wasn't super-excited for "Redemption," but then when I watched it I totally got back into the 24 world. I thought it was a really good way to get people psyched for the show again.

Poor Jack--yet another "longest day" ahead of him.

And that Bauer Pizza parody is hilarious--loved the phone ring at the end, too.

I am intrigued about what has happened with Tony. The confrontation between Jack and him in the trailer is intriguing.

I just bought Seasons 2-6 at Target for $17.99 a pop. That was too good a deal to pass up! I'd have bought Season 1 as well, but I already had it. I've seen the first two seasons and most of the 6th, but I'm looking forward to taking a stroll down crazy-agent-lane pretty soon to get caught up to Season 7.

Trying to decide now whether to have a GIANT marathon of 1-6 or just a medium marathon of 3-5 to see the seasons I haven't seen before. Such a quandary!

This is just a rumor being passed around, supposedly from a 24 exec, but...



It's pretty easy to point to a plot element as to why Tony didn't die. Supposedly the interrogator had pumped Christopher Henderson so full of drugs that he was fried, yet he got up like nothing had happened, took out Tony and escaped in full health. And those were the same chemicals that Tony "died" from. So that would make the interrogator CTU Mole #45.

Surprisingly, I'm excited for this. Redemption exceeded my (admittedly low) expectations, and, hopefully, a tightly serialized arc combined with a new location and a strong cast will help me forget the mess that was season six (much in the same way season five helped me forget the mess that was seasons three-four).

Is it Sunday yet?

Thanks for that, Aragorn! Rumor or not, it's fascinating!


I finally got around to buying S1, the only one I have yet to see. It's going to be interesting to compare it with where the show is now. I knwo how the general consensus seems to go, but even so... it will be fun watching and comparing it for myself.

It never fails to make me laugh no matter how many times I watch it.

My conduct in the field isn't always proper.

Where the hell is Domino's? They could license that and have the BEST AD EVAH!!!! on the cheap. They could do a product placement deal with Fox and get Keifer to do the voice.

Okay maybe the part about shooting smack is pushing it some...

FYI, Tony dies at the end of the first episode, the next episode cliffhanger is him still being alive, then he dies in the episode after that, and the following episode cliffhanger is him still being alive, and this only happens 10 more times.

Easily explained. Those 12 were his clone, his MU double, a shapeshifter, a Cylon double, Tony from the future, Tony from the past, a Prophet taking the form of Tony to try to speak to The Sisko, a Terminator double of Tony, Tony from even further in the past, Sylar from the future imiating Tony after having obtained Candace's powers, yet another Cylon double (who has hot robo-sex with the first Tony Cylon double ) and Q pulling yet another adorable prank.

Something tells me 24's producers have no sense of humor. Did you SEE the "Half-Hour Comedy Hour" they "produced" for FOXNews? It was almost suicide inducing whether you're a terrorist or not. THAT'S when torture goes too damn far, I tell ya!
