  • Kim decides to undergo some risky operation, in which the doctors will extract stem cells from her and implant them into a cougar, whose offspring’s brain will contain a cure for the bio-agent that’s killing Jack. Of course, the Kim/cougar baby brain will have to be prepared first… extracted… diced…

  • Cherry Jones was still president… and still alive.

Sweet. I had almost forgotten about this show; it was a pleasant surprise to learn that the season premiere was right around the corner. Here’s hoping for this year’s story will at least have some shades of plausibility!

Oh, what am I saying. It will probably be another plot along the lines of “the terrorists have captured a magical device that allows them to hack the internet and make the showers of all freedom-loving Americans spew acid at the same time.” It’ll still be fun, even if it’s stupid. :smiley:

I saw one of the commercials today and it turns out this season is going to be set in New York. That should be entertaining or good for some laughs.

I wish he would come back to L.A. already. I don’t feel safe without him!

:smiley:

“If I don’t yada yada yada, everyone in New York will die!”

I don’t care if 24 is cheesy, I like it. IMO the main problem is that the writers run out of ideas around hour 16 and just create something really, really dumb to finish off the last 8 episodes. Seems to happen every year. I’ll be watching anyhow. :stuck_out_tongue:

“I’m going to need a hacksaw.”

I don’t call them hacksaws anymore. They’re jacksaws.

I would love to know why Kiefer hasn’t been on SNL spoofing Jack Bauer.

Is this show replacing the Sunday lineup of family guy et al? They aren’t on tonight!

Two hours each on Sun and Mon. It’s a Jack-fest!

It’s been so long since this show first aired, I think Kim might actually be a cougar now!

Well, from what I’ve seen, promo-wise, at least the first issue sounds like it will involve

an assassination attempt on an important diplomat/ambassador from another country. And a promo I saw on the 24 | Watch Full Episodes Online on FOX web site seemed to mention something about drones – like the ones our military uses abroad – sounds like there will be some drones loose flying around in New York, controlled by baddies…?

3) Hey Monstre, where you been?
[/QUOTE]

Were you gone?

:slight_smile:

::: phoning anonymous tip in to Jack Bauer that c-plant has knowledge of where the bomb is :::

If I had to guess, I’d say it’s because SNL skits are seldom funny any more. Kiefer did lend his voice to the Simpsons episode that spoofed 24 – which was a great episode! But good point – I’d love to see him doing a few more of those kinds of things!

In an unrelated matter, I just noticed that his filmography on IMDB lists as an upcoming credit something called “Twelve”. I found that kind of amusing… (half of “24”? Jack Bauer’s adventures after retirement?)

I loved that episode of the Simpsons!

Curse Jack’s cell phone that would work on the dark side of the moon!

And here we go!

We have proven that you can’t hit anything shooting gangster style.

“…she reminds me of you.”
Why, she closes people’s hands in car doors?

President Hassan: “Let me be clear…” (hmmm… where have I heard that phrase before?)
