Cant believe that show lasted more than 2 seasons
http://www.deadline.com/2013/05/24-e...land-in-talks/The clock may start ticking again on Fox. I’ve learned that the network is looking to bring back its signature real-time drama 24 as a limited series. Kiefer Sutherland is in talks to reprise his Emmy-winning role as Agent Jack Bauer.
This time he is going to save Los Angeles and network TV.
24 was always good as long as you could suspend disbelief and just enjoy the ride. Not every show has to be the same standard as The Wire/Breaking Bad, some are just pure entertainment.
Living in the UK 24 was one of the first shows I downloaded regularly, I can remember staying up till 4-5am and waiting for the rips to hit the FTP sites for distribution...much easier these days.
I cried when Jack told the President that he was fine with Nina killing him in order to stop the nukes. Full on tears.

Even though the series got a little long in the tooth, I still enjoyed it. Would love to see it return. And Tony probably needs a job too.
and yet they could not bring back Firefly....fuck Fox.
I loved this show so much. When it had bad seasons I never wished for it to be canceled, I just wanted the next season to be better. I hope they bring it back.
By the time they got to Audrey etc this show was starting its downward slide and it was only when they cancelled it in the final season that it seemed the writers were re-energised and they went out all guns blazing.
If they had the energy from the first two seasons or the last 1/3 or so of the final season then sure, bring it back but otherwise no thanks! Don't forget this was the series that cast Sam Gangee and Starbuck in hilariously dismal roles, their characters couldn't be killed off fast enough.
Something that gives me a little hope though, they are calling it "limited event series" which suggests they might not go for a full 24 episodes with the inevitable filler of daughter kidnapping and several different CTU mole reveals etc.
I pretty much loved the entirety of 24, the only thing i hated was Kim - dear god they did their god dam best to make her the most annoying character ever. I hope they bring it back, their is nothing like it on television still and would be a very welcome addition to fox.
I'm done with this show. It was pretty terrible at the end.
I absolutely adored the first two seasons but season three was just... ugh. I always bought these on DVD as there was no way I could watch them, waiting a week between episodes. However, when I finished three and was left feeling very disappointed, I couldn't get back into it again. Definitely never anything like it again though.

they just got through showing the worst 24 ripoff ever (The Following) and it got fucking renewed for a second season which is continuing first season's terrible story. so lots of people apparently still love these kinds of shows even resorting to watching a kevin bacon knockoff. there is still life in 24's franchise, they just need to work on story a little bit more than trying to one up themselves every season. its what got themselves into trouble in the first place.
I think the entire disappointment I had with anything past s1 or s2 was the guy they cast as the President. He was a badass, and the fact his wife was batshit crazy didn't hurt.
gillian anderson also does a lot of shit in the UK and I think lives in London, and x-files the movie 2 suuuuucked. I dunno why all of you are getting rock hard for a return to 24, you know it will be absolute dogshit since nothing ever goes away for 5+ years and comes back better, especially women and TV shows. Still, I'll watch and make fun of it because 24 was fucking awesome, even when it was really shitty.
and yeah, President Palmer aka "the black president before obama" was a goddamn badass motherfucker, as was President NixonGuy but President ClintonLady sucked. The next 24 should have a female Asian president who turns out to be a north korean spy and lesbian nymphomaniac. Oooh, and Kim could be her sex slave, FUCKING GOLD RIGHT HERE.
did anyone stick with Touch and watch it all the way? I feel bad for abandoning my bro Jack and not watching it, but I don't like shows that heavily feature a child actor.

what was touch about anyway? was it like that nic cage end of the world movie meets that bruce willis 90s movie about the code breaking kid? sorry i cant remember either names of those movies because they sucked.
Jack Bauer is the most badass television character to ever grace the small screen. I don't care if the story lines are stupid and I have to suspend disbelief as long as I get 24 hours of Jack Bauer fucking up bad guys and making crazy hard choices.
The problem with 24 and with the majority of network television is making 21-24 episodes. You simply have too much filler and false leads making the story bloated and unnecessary. With 24 streamlined into something more like a mini-series, it could be great because of it being concentrated like the majority of the great shows that are on premium channels.
I wish they'd put all Jack's kills in slow motion to stretch it out to 48 episodes per season.
They're probably converting their movie script into a mini-series, since the current crop of TV shows sucks so much ass.
isn't Homeland basically a better 24 (havent watched it yet)? Also has the same producer crew I believe. So its not really fair to say nothing like 24 has come around. Anyways its official, 24 is coming back for a limited run, whatever that means. Bit odd if its going to be less than 24 episodes or not in a real-time format.
im sure she will be available, ole frowny face doesnt get much work. she does mostly indie films.
Yes. We need Chole to open a socket.

The woman who plays Chloe does a lot of TV and hardly any movies.
If they bring her back I hope it's only so they can kill her off. She's a terrible actress and she looks weird to boot. Jack can kick ass without opening sockets.
chloe is fine, jack needs those sockets opened so he knows where to find the terrorists and growly torture the shit out of them
Maybe the plot is Chloe was actually the evil mastermind behind everything in the ultimate long con
