I rented the Renedition DVD to watch the extras. Looked like 24 is back on top of its game. Looks like it can easily be the best show on TV again in 2009.

You guys want to keep all the "24" discussion in one thread or break out a new one for season 7?

I sure hope the daughter comes back

Yes, the Daughter is in i know the last 5 epsides at least. IMDB confirmed that much. Maybe she is in more?

Question: Got any 24 scoop to tide us over until January? -- Jack
Ausiello: A pivotal character from last Sunday's Redemption movie will die within the first four hours of Day 7.
Question: What's the deal with evil Tony on 24? What made him go postal? -- Craig
Ausiello: I hear it has something to do with his wife being blown to bits three years ago. Apparently he didn't take it too well.
Question: Will Audrey Raines (a.k.a. Kim Raver) turn up on 24 this season now that Lipstick Jungle is no more? -- Carina
Ausiello: As far as I know, she's still in a catatonic state at the beach with that schemer from Knots Landing. (FYI: The script for the season finale of 24 was already written and locked when the ax fell on Lipstick.)

SPOILERS ARE FOUND BELOW!!! IF READ, IT WILL RUIN THE FIRST 15 MINUTES OF DAY 7!!




































































Jack Bauer is Ornery as Ever

Jack Bauer begins the seventh hellish day of his life as a bitter little beaver. The fact that he's been brought in for questioning regarding his use of interrogation techniques is a sticking point, especially since it appears that after the senate hearing he will be sent to jail for an unspecified amount of time. He gives an impassioned, albeit simplistic, response to the torture allegations. He addresses the senator who heads up the hearing in a contrite and snide manner. When removed from the hearing to help investigate an imminent security threat he is short with the FBI handlers and the woman who will be his new partner. His bitterness will probably remain palpable until the charges are dropped, which may or may not happen during the season.

Tony Almeida Might Actually be a Bad Guy

I know that 24 and its writers are trying to trick us all. They want us to think that Tony is the bad guy, only to have him be redeemed later on. I think all of us 24 fans assume that Tony and Jack will eventually team up during season 7 and it will be just like old times. But maybe, just maybe, one of the big twists will be that Tony is indeed a bad guy now. He orchestrates a dangerous kidnapping in the season's very first scene, and he looks poised to do some awful things at Dulles airport. Chances are,he'll be redeemed, but it's more of a question for me now than before I had seen the footage.

I'm Not Sold on the Supporting Cast/New CTU

Annie Wersching's straight-laced FBI agent lacks personality and charisma in the opening minutes of season 7. I felt the same way after watching the various season 7 trailers. It will be a real bummer if she continues to be the uninteresting straight woman to Jack's wild card. Let's hope that Jack slowly changes her outlook on things. But, I'm not sure that even Jack and inject a person with the necessary personality. Also, in the first fifteen minutes, both Rhys Coiro and Janeane Garofalo make brief appearances as the “New CTU” employees, working in the FBI offices. Coiro's character is stand-offish, and Garofalo is predictably nebbish. They're no Chloe and Edgar, or Chloe and Morris. At least not yet.

I'm Pretty Sure That Even the FBI Can's Interrupt Senate Hearings

I loved the idea of starting off the season with Jack before a senate committee. However, he's quickly dragged out of the hearing by Wersching's FBI agent. I seriously doubt an FBI agent can simply waltz into such a hearing and take Bauer away. Realism isn't 24's forte, I know, but it still felt like a cop out, Deus ex Machina in practice.

I apologize for my n00bness.Unless you have a PS3 or a Xbox360 you would be best served just watching it on your computer. These are Divx files and you would have to check to make sure your DVD player is capable of playing them.

Season 6 was the first season that we didn't watch on DVD and I found it much less enjoyable. It's probably because as a viewer, it's more intense to watch 3 or 4 episodes in a row (let alone an entire season in 10 or 12 days) as opposed to watching over the course of nearly 6 months.

Maybe I'll buy Season 6 and give it another shot.

The whole debate about torture is starting to stick out like a sore thumb. The whole idea of Jack being on trial was fine, but now that theme is getting worked into every episode. Jacks conversation with the agent in the car, the woman FBI agent interrogating that guy, blah blah blah.

I fully understand that the people behind 24 were brow beaten over this issue for years. After all, its easier to criticize a show on television than it is to do a better job teaching soldiers in the military that they arent supposed to be acting like characters on TV do.

But after initially pointing out it was just a TV show and telling people to stick it up their ass if they didnt like it, the 24 people gave in. And now its like they feel like they have to keep showing how responsible they are by repeatedly addressing the issue. And the end result is that its dragging down the show.

Do I want people out there breaking the law and torturing people in real life? No, I dont. Do I want to see Jack Bauer pretend to kill a terrorists children to get that guy to talk? Yes, I do. This should not be such a complicated distinction.

Yeah, you usually can rule out the A-holes or those that are doing underhanded things right away in the seasson. They are A-Holes not traitors.

So yes, we know Voight is aiding him. This is one of the key things the prequel movie established. Voight has a financial stake in the African situation, something about their diamond trade, which was why he is aiding the General and why he was getting rid of incriminating records that led to the friend of the Presidents son getting killed.

Usually always, yes. But it's hard to imagine that's the case here.

It was mentioned a lot that when Tony died (or so it seemed), they didn't do a silent clock for him, which may have been a clue that he wasn't really dead. People actually got mad about it because a lesser character had gotten a silent clock death a week or two prior to Tony, and they thought Tony deserved more respect.

Is next year the last year and then a "24" movie franchise?
http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/01/24-exclusive-ki.html?cnn=yes

Good news for terrorists everywhere: With just one more year left on Kiefer Sutherland's 24 contract, there's a very real possibility that Jack Bauer's career as the world's foremost savior may end next season. And while Sutherland says he's undecided as to whether day 8 will be his last, he's watching the clock in a way he never has before.

"I don't think about [the end of 24] a lot, but I did this year for the first time," he confesses. "It was one of those weird moments where the stage was unusually quiet; it was like a ghost town. I was looking around [thinking] about all the work that went into building this thing and it hit me: This will end one day, and I'm going to be sad about it.

"Whether season 8 is the end or not, I don't know," he continues. "I love making the show, so I'm leaving my options open. And in all fairness, I think the audience will dictate that more than anybody."

In the meantime, perhaps even more critical than determining when Jack will pack it in is how. "There are two obvious choices: Jack dies, or Jack finally has a happy ending," suggests executive producer Evan Katz. "It's actually an interesting discussion as to which would be more faithful to the show and more rewarding for the audience. Because if we give him a happy ending, part of the audience would be mad at us for doing what is easy. And if we kill him, they would be mad at us for a different reason altogether."

There are also the bean counters at 20th Century Fox to consider; they'll need Jack alive if there's to be a 24 movie franchise (as many expect there will be). "Kiefer and I have always said, 'Jack Bauer's gotta die,'" says fellow EP and frequent director Jon Cassar. "But then the idea of a 24 movie came up and we went, 'Oh, okay, maybe not.'

"I always joke that Jack dies and they discover he's been the terminator the whole time," Cassar adds with a laugh. "That's why he never died [and] why he can't stay in relationships. And then they take another Jack Bauer off the rack and send him out into the world. It makes a lot of sense, but I don't think it'll happen."

What kind of ending do you envision for Jack? And how would you feel if 24 were to call it a day next year (at least on the small screen)? Sound off below!

Can you say "jumped the shark" with this season's story line? How the hell would four people be able to coordinate as well as fund this kind of operation? I can already see the, "Jack is on our side, let him save the world" speech coming from the President in a couple weeks.

I'm hoping her character changes quite a bit because right now, it is brutal to watch when she is on the screen. Other than her, I'm enjoying this season.

She seems more like a soccer mom (or grandma) than a president. :shake:

Yup. I'm as big of fan of this show as you'll find, but watching last night's episode I was like WTF?!?

#1 - No way in hell it would be that simple to get an entire unit into the White House. A secret tunnel behind a brick wall? I would have believed it more if they had a guy inside the White House letting them in the back door.

#2 - Why did Jack have to pull the gun on Bill? Why did Jack have to knock him out? Why was the conversation so much like how Jack would talk to a witness he was getting ready to torture?

#3 - The President continues to get higher on my "People I want to see die" list.

#4 - No way in hell Jack....Jack Freakin' Bauer.....allows the President outside of the safe room. He would sooner cut off his own leg, beat the President unconscious with it then to let her out the door because of her daughter was captured. Sorry, but the President should know that they have to sacrifice at the highest level in a case like that. You're daughter is captured? Sorry....you're the fucking President.

I completely agree (and with Mr. Plow). I was actually yelling obscenities at the screen last night, I was so disgusted.

Seriously, when the president emerged from the safe room, I wanted Juma to shoot the daughter just to show what a dumbshit the prez is. Then when he slapped her, I said "Thank God, if he didn't do that I was going to."

That prez is an abomination. She doesn't deserve to hold office. What an awful character.

Exactly. I was a little weary of this actress going into the season playing the President, but she's been as bad as I expected and then some.


Jack should have just opened the safe room door just enough to get his gun out to shoot the daughter in the head.

After they have been pushing on us the whole "Jack is evil - Jack tortures people - Jack is the worst human being" on us ON TOP of them just showing us him torturing a guy for info there is NO WAY he would just casually open the safe room door to let the President get captured.

Yeah, there is no way that Jack is going to let the President out of the safe room without a plan to take the white house back.

The main hole in the story is that they would have access outside of the white house to the video cameras to prove that they don't have the President. But then again what I hear is that the White house is really far behind in its technology. They can't even send mass emails out to the public.
