More 24 talk

Earlier today I was reading an article on TVSquad called "Six Reasons Why '24' Has Jumped the You-Know-What" and I was thinking about how we just listed most of those points last week. Well, for this week's episode they decided to out-do themselves. As if those previous points weren't enough, there...



24 talk

So we're 6 episodes in already, and I've gotta say, this season is slow and lackluster. It's taking a long time on setup, and it doesn't seem like there is going to be much of a payoff. The only real storyline is the acquiring of nukes. But what happened to Hassan's brother that escaped? They didn't...



24 Season 8 kicks off!

I haven't forgotten about 24, nor have I stopped watching it. I just decided to abstain from reviewing the episodes every week as I have in the past, because some weeks are not as interesting or some plots are not that interesting, so it's not always fun or useful to review every single episode. I'm...



The trailer for 24 Season 8!

I don't think there's any major spoilers in this...I just found it was a good way to remember 24 is going to be back on soon, and how awesome it's going to be!



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episodes 23 and 24

This week's season finale was craziness, and I found it quite good overall. A lot of things were very predictable and it felt like they wasted the last half hour, but the preceding hour and a half had a lot of action and a few good twists. To make things more sensible I'll break it down by a paragraph...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 22

This week's episode had a lot of action and was pretty good overall. There were plenty of plot holes and ridiculous moments, but there was enough going on that it was easy enough to overlook those things. But I'll call them out: the whole setup with the bomb made no sense. Why wouldn't they have just...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 21

This week's episode made me want to puke. It was so preachy, cheesy, and completely over-the-top, it was ridiculous. I usually save the best for last, but literally the only great moment was the SUV with Hodges in it exploding because that really caught me by surprise. Though even in that scene, I found...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 20

This week's episode was hilarious, and also had some action and setup as the finale quickly approaches. But first, the reasons I found it funny...both the FBI and the President acted incredulous when they heard that Tony had breached the perimeter. Apparently they're still not aware of the fact that...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 19

This week's episode was craziness, in a good way. They didn't revisit the Kim/Jack thing too much, Janis was still pretty useless, and Larry's dead. I consider all of those good things. That meant the focus was on the action and the main plot, which had a couple of interesting twists. The secondary plot...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 18

This week's episode was interesting. The Kim/Jack reunion happens but wasn't very climactic since she's not saving Jack right now. But I'll put money on the fact she'll be back within 3 episodes to save Jack. I wonder if there will be any lingering effects once he's saved though, since it's starting...



24 teasers

In anticipation of tonight's episode, which looked crazy in the previews, here's pieces of a TVSquad interview with Carlos Bernard who plays Tony Almeida (or Smirky McSmirkerson as I prefer to call him). Before I get to all the other questions though, here's the main reason it caught my attention (esp....



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 17

Ok, I may have said it before, but I think I seriously plan to stop watching 24 once this season is over. Despite all the promise of the "rebirth of 24" after the lackluster Season 6, it feels like things are really going off the rails since this Season is not only lackluster as well, but there's no...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 16

This week's episode was exceedingly dull. Often that happens when there's action being setup for a future episode, but in this case it felt like nothing more than an effort to kill time. And to exacerbate the situation, there were still several ludicrous plot holes, mostly pertaining to security once...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 15

This week's episode was crazy, centering mostly around Jack and Tony trying to get to the bioweapon before the Starkwood goons. There were a couple of other distractions as well. Ethan and the Taylors continued their ridiculous drama, with Ethan sayhing he was resigning and admitting he had authorized...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 14

This week's episode was hot and cold. Almost the entire first half was awful because it combined the worst over-actors in their worst over-acting. Renee, Larry, and Janis tried their hardest to make you groan. If that wasn't enough, the Ethan-Olivia nonsense was even more over-the-top. Thankfully, the...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 13

Back on schedule this week! This week's episode was pretty good. And that was mostly all due to the last 15 minutes, and also due to the president's daughter totally slamming Ethan in what was going to be a stupid conversation, where either Allison would be so happy Ethan gave her the job in the administration,...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episodes 11 and 12

I'm late on this week's 24 because I was on vacation. But here at last, is the review for the double-episode! This week's episode was a mixed bag...equal parts action/suspense and glaring plot holes. Overall I enjoyed both episodes, but the episodes were quite predictable, and there were so many major...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 10

This week's episode was sweet! Tons of action, not a lot of White House scenes, a car chase, explosions, etc. Good stuff. And even better, it looks like it isn't going to ease up any next week, unless the preview was for the next few episodes (and given how much they showed, that's possible). The car...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 9

This week's episode was setup for next week. Seriously, if you saw next week's preview, it's clear it's going to be crazy. But as a result, this episode was quite predictable and not too interesting. The thing that could have made the episode interesting, the revelation of Sean as the mole, was poorly...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 8

This week's episode was was kind of a mixed bag. While I was pretty pleased with the episode overall, there was a surprising amount of moments that made me cringe. Let's start with the good. There was a lot of action, between the capture of Henry (and subsequent torture), Jack's car chase to catch Vossler,...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 7

This week's episode was pretty good, though that was primarily due to one scene. The drama between Larry and Sean was over-the-top again, and the stuff with Janis and the plant manager was equally mind-numbing. And apparently the CIP device is basically a key to everything, because Dubaku went from using...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 6

This week's episode was ridiculous and I wasn't very pleased with it. Let me explain. We've already established that the stuff going on in the White House is pretty mundane and takes away from the other awesome stuff going on. Well, half this episode was at the White House. First, the President and Ethan...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episode 5

Yes, after last week's 4-episode craziness, we're back to 1 episode per week. This week's episode was not terribly exciting, though a lot of it was setup, as evidenced by the preview of next week's episode. It was an interesting episode, but I think I wasn't thrilled by it because most of the developments...



This week in 24 - Season 7, Episodes 1-4

With 4 hours of TV in 2 nights, it's pretty easy to fall behind with the first review. But now that I've seen all of it, I can confidently say 24 quickly reestablished why it's so addictive and awesome. The amount of plot development, twists, and chases/explosions in just 4 hours was ridiculous. In a...



This week in 24 - 1 week until the Season 7 premiere!

That's right...it's time to prepare yourself to sit on the edge of your seat for another 24 hours of awesome starting next Sunday, the 11th at 8/7c. And in usual 24-style, they're starting it off with 4 hours in 2 nights. Hopefully you got to catch 24:Redemption when it aired at the end of November since...



Update on the 24 prequel

After rumors that the whole idea may have been dropped, FOX has confirmed that the 2-hour 24 prequel is happening before Season 7 starts up in January. However, it will be airing Sunday, November 23 at 8ET, rather than in the fall as originally suggested. As I reported before, it will be bridging the...



24 fans don't have to wait until January [Update]

Update: FOX officially confirmed the prequel news and updated the date of airing to November. Yep, the writers' strike pushed Season 7 of 24 all the way to next January, instead of beginning this January. That's not changing, but in the fall there's going to be a 2-hour prequel movie which they're...



The 24 Season 7 trailer is up

The extended trailer for the new season of 24 is now online. For those trying to avoid any spoilers, you should definitely not watch this. It doesn't contain anything more than I've posted about before though, and I don't think it'll make the season any less enjoyable. I'm just glad they realized they...



Kiefer busted drunk driving

This story isn't all that interesting...basically Kiefer Sutherland was arrested for drunk driving (according to TMZ). But the line in TVSquad's story made me laugh: The field sobriety test given to Sutherland showed the star was two times over the state limit of .08. Too bad he wasn't three times...



Season 7 changes for 24

dave submitted a story about some potential 24 changes for the upcoming season. None of this is particularly surprising considering the producers already acknowledged that fans were displeased with Season 6.



This Week in 24 - Season 6, Episodes 23, 24 - Live-blogging the finale!

I'm "live"-blogging the finale starting an hour late at 8pm Central so I can avoid all commercials. I'm including spoiler cues so anyone watching on delay can read as they watch without getting a spoiler if they scroll too fast. To see the live updates, click Read More below to follow this story after...



24 2-hour finale tonight!

This is going to be awesome! The end of the season has really picked up so I'm excited about this. I might be excited enough to live-blog about it, but I might also be watching this on some delay to avoid commercials, so I'm making that a game-time decision.



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 22

This week's episode was awesome. I'm marking things that were surprising with (!). On the presidential side, Lisa got discovered, the Russian president knew the data was planted(!), and the VP gets until the end of the season (minus a few minutes) to resolve the issue. On the Jack side, he kicked...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 21

This week we finally got an episode which went back to the basics. Bauer kicks a bunch of ass, CTU people dying, hostage situations, double crosses...just classic 24. Apparently the writers woke up with 3 episodes left in the season. In complete contrast to yesterday's episode of Entourage, I can't think...



24 could get an adrenaline shot

Ah, this is fantastic news. It's no secret that this season of 24 has been well under par as far as 24 seasons go. We've been talking about that on this very site weekly now. Characters have gotten overly soft, plots are getting recycled to such a point that it feels like very little in this season has...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 20

I can say that I'm glad we finally had a good episode. There was a mole, Jack was in the episode (which we'd been taking for granted) and it was pretty good overall. Tom's not only playing nice with the VP, he's helping him out! And the VP's aide proves that yes, she really is hot. Speaking of hot, Nadia...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 19

Talk about a crappy episode! There was literally nothing good in this episode. Let's go over what was stupid about it: - Chloe and Morris having a fight - stupid. - Tom and the VP make nice? - stupid. - The VP and his assistant get cozy. No surprise. - stupid. - Nadia goes from useless hot girl...



Great list of Jack Bauer basic truths

Here's a fantastic list of Jack Bauer "basic truths" to get you excited about 24 if you weren't already. SOme of the best ones: If Jack Bauer was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and Nina Meyers, and he had a gun with 2 bullets, he'd shoot Nina twice. If you wake up in the morning, it's because Jack...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 18

If it weren't for the last 10 minutes, this episode would have been a total waste. Nothing useful happened, and it was fairly obvious about what was going to happen to Palmer well before it actually happened. But in the last 10 minutes the VP got to throw a wrench into Jack's plan to save Audrey,...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 17

What can I say about this week? A lot. It finally was an interesting episode. I don't know what it is, but I still feel like these haven't been strong episodes. This episode was better for the simple fact that Jack finally got back into the action some more and kicked some ass. The twist with the...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 16

Another episode, another post. This week, has definitely improved on what I've seen as some weak episodes the last few weeks. Hopefully it's just the start of some better episodes. It still feels weird not having Jack in the majority of the show...there's just so much stuff going on with other characters,...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 15

What can I say about this week? It was kind of stupid. There were too many convenient and simple occurrences, like the guy easily giving up Gredenko, his brother easily going along with the grab, Gredenko giving up Fayed without a fight, the President coming out of the coma to give the order to stand...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 14

It looks like they've set out this season to reintroduce every character that's been on the past 5 seasons. It was hilarious how Milo was using Chloe as a human breathalyzer, and how Chloe wasn't even remotely inconspicous about it. I love how Jack gets to do whatever the hell he wants, like going...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 13

Definitely an interesting episode this week. Both Jack and Logan are injured...Jack rarely struggles to deal with pain and he looked ready to collapse. The Logan stabbing came out of nowhere...didn't I say Logan's wife was going to suck? And why the heck is Aaron with her? That's disturbing. It...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 12

Sure the season's been pretty good so far, but this episode definitely kicked it up a notch. I did keep cringing at the fact that Logan is in this, which meant that his wife is likely going to be on soon. Sure enough, they showed her in the teaser for next week. She's got to be the worst character...



This week in 24 - Season 6, Episode 11

This season has been totally crazy. Don't forget to check out the character countdown for last night's episode! I'm posting a story for each episode so we can discuss them here. As of right now, the character countdown has not added this episode yet. Click to see all This week in 24 stories.



Who wants to play fantasy 24?

Ok, so admittedly I discovered this a bit late this season, but there's still plenty of 24 to go! Apparently the site Watching 24 has started doing a character countdown this season. They start all the characters with 100 points at the beginning, and then different events in each episode determine whether...



Learn to use spoiler tags, FOX!

Fox.com is advertising the 2-hour episode of 24 that's going to be on tonight. But check out the spoiler in the ad! Not cool, FOX. You expect me to watch the episode after telling me stuff is going to explode? This is what spoiler tags were made for. Stuff blows up so rarely on 24, that this is...



Kiefer Sutherland's commercials

dave submitted a link saying "Kiefer Sutherland is awesome on Twent...wait, is he doing commercials?" See the video here. As Dave mentioned, he also does the voiceover in the new Intel Mac ad and for Verizon ads. I'm surprised by all of these (and the fact I never noticed), though not surprised he does...



24 rocks my socks off

If you're not watching 24 on Fox, you need to start. One of the best shows on TV just started Season 5 last night with 2 hours, and another 2 hours air tonight (7pm central). After that it's back to its one hour a week schedule. If you think "But I missed several (or all) previous seasons, so I won't...



Next season of 24 to have 4-hour debut

Yahoo has an article (spoiler warning: contains possible Season 4 spoilers) focusing on the fact that the Lord of the Rings actor Sean Astin is to be in Season 5. Maybe he'll shadow Jack going "You can't give up Mr. Bauer! Not when we've come this far!" Then he'll start crying. Ridiculous. More importantly,...
