Capital letters must be something you didn't learn in school?
PSN: Araxen, Xbox Live: Araxen II, WiiU: Araxen, Steam: Araxen
how many caps are in 24?
So you're saying I should download and watch 24? I haven't watched a single episode of it ever. Is it totally worth it?
its worth it, just keep in mind this show and reality are distant cousins and jack bauer is an immortal.
24 is a masterpiece. It has eye roll moments like how fast they can travel in "real time", but for the most part they are extremely well made. Jack Bauer is a unstoppable force of nature and I loved every second of it. I can't wait to see him return.
I watched it when it came out and loved it. I am in the middle of a rewatch of all 8 seasons because I read this was coming back about a month ago.
Jack is immortal. I shed a tear for him in Season 2 though.
oderint dum metuant
Jack is kinda superman. And the show knows it. And the show knows you know it. And if at any point you have a problem with that you can go right ahead and fuck yourself.
He keeps America safe.
It's a good show for the type of show that it is. You'll either like it or go "meh". It's hard to hate 24.
Edit: They used to do this super annoying shit with multiple frames inside a frame which annoyed me to no end. But it really drives home the
comic bookgraphic novel aesthetic of it. That's about the worst thing you can say about 24, I think.

Just be prepared for lots of protocols and opening of sockets. And every scene without Bauer sucking donkey balls. Like when The Blacklist has a scene without Reddington in it, or possibly worse.
But Jack Bauer is all that is man. He is John McClaine without the jokes, Rambo without the brain damage, James Bond without the British.

The 1st and 2nd season of 24 are amazing.
The 3rd season lost me about halfway through and I stopped watching entirely sometime during the 4th season.
One day I hope to be as attractive and well spoken as Tuco!
so i guess chloe moves to the UK to live with her brit husband. jack comes to visit and shit hits the fan while hes there?
That preview was completely retarded but I love me some Jack Bauer !
Not everything on the internet is true - Abraham Lincoln
there is a lot info in that promo. too much, i shut it off. its good stuff though. beware of possible spoilers.
2 hour special tonight, been waiting for this one for awhile.
First 3 seasons were fucking awesome for me, Jack is an absolute monster.
He's like the George RR Martin of action heroes.
We always called Jack Bauer Captain America when the show was on. I only watched the last couple seasons of the show I did not start watching it until I was out of the service. Pretty excited for this, got it set up on my DVR already.
Jack is back bitches after 4 years! lol Cant wait.

So Fox stopped working just before 24 started. Yesterday it was Spike during Bar Rescue. I have had cable here for a week and two channels have randomly not worked during shows I want to see. Every other channel is fine. Going to dump them and go back to Satellite even though its a hassle at my apartment.
working fine on directv. im guessing blondie is "the mole".
Yeah its something with my cable. They think there might be a signal problem. Seems a bit to random/and narrow to be that to me but I admittedly do not know shit about how cable works. Non HD is working. So the only thing not working is the Fox HD channel.
go into your options and display non hd with hd
i dont remember anymore, but did tits mcghee die in the last season?
i missed this show so much, first hour was awesome.
damn, my memory is friggin going, is that the assassin from seasons past?
Damn Sansa Stark grew up fast
Catelynn Starks daughter would fucking get it jesus.
Yeah, seen enough 24 to see that coming with the bimbo.
Brief brain fuck. Opened this thread just as Chloe appeared on screen Californication.
We'll see what happens, I'm hoping the fact that it is only twelve episodes lets them skip past some of the tropes that made 24 tired. For example, the inevitable mole.
We already got a mole. Fake russian chick
Fake Russian girl doesn't count as the mole since he was a bad guy. I am talking about the one within the CIA or President's circle.
CIA department guy that I want to call Lou Diamond Phillips but isn't is totally working with Jack. Surely, they can come up with a better excuse for Bauer to be involved than "I was just hiding in a barn somewhere and I heard about this plot to kill the President..."
Also, lol at Jack "rescuing" Chloe just to get to her hacker buddies.
Thats not lou diamond phllips, thats Paco...
"Hey, I'm POTUS' Chief of Staff and I'm also dating his daughter because it's pony club politics."
I liked first season of 24 but right now it's just as bad as a life insurance commercial. It's fanservice at its finest, MILF 43 years old Chloe playing the hipster hacker with DocMartens, rebellious haircut and D&G mascara, helping out of the blue 48 years old Jack B goddamniting everything with guns and shit because any AR grenade launcher could pulverize a 4f concrete floor. I won't even talk about CIA agents being so dumb they need some disgraced not-her-fault barbie spy girl to lead the way.
Wait a minute, it's actually pretty racist : black people are dumb and their word is shit, latino are cinco de mayo tokens, englishmen have cockney accents, big ears and ugly faces, anything involving organized crime is ran by central europe guys and white people have huge problems like running wikileaks from some abandoned place and asians are nowhere. Special mention to Catelyn Stark and her daughter running some shit under the curtains. This 9th season is written by interns.
I still can't stand Chloe as a character and she's a shitty actress. But I'm damn glad to have Jack back.
chloe invented the grumpy cat expression
Always looks like she is pouting. Has a 'stupid bitch' face. Damn I hate Chloe.
It's called bitchy resting face
One day I hope to be as attractive and well spoken as Tuco!
I wouldn't care what she looked like if she had a modicum of acting ability. The scene of her being tortured was just painful to watch, not because of the torture, but because of her shitty acting.
Her and the black canary chick from Arrow have the 2 most annoying faces in TV.
I call her potato head constipated face
Pussy bitch Draegan sold us out to MMORPG.com
Exodus underway to Rererolled - A Gaming Community
Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
I forget what season it was, but the season that showed chloe in underwear and a tee-shirt. She had a damn fine ass. Now though, not so sure.
You probably think Iím at a disadvantage. I promise you, Iím not.
lol, fucking jack bauer
Can I just start skipping every scene that isn't Bauer or BetterSansa?
Plot too slow.
I do love British Parliament, though. Nice scene.
I don't quite get the plot. So they're going to kill the President on foreign soil using drones, and this will somehow start a war? I can't see two 1st world countries like England and the United States going to war simply because our President dies in their country. Anyway, other than poetic justice and collateral damage from the drone strikes, wouldn't it make more sense to make it appear as if England assassinated the President? That seems like it would be more likely to cause a huge rift between the two countries and lead to larger troubles for them both.
If the plot revolves around Cat as the master villain, then the story would be her getting revenge for her husbands drone death. She will kill the President and most of the UK govt and the world would "blame" America for letting its drones get hijacked and used against civilians. It wouldn't start a war, but nobody would want to ally themselves with the US, financial markets will collapse, and who knows what else - maybe China or Russia use it as an excuse to take over oil fields etc.
It doesn't really quite make sense that there are drones armed with Hellfire missiles flying around Europe, but I guess we make a bit of a leap and say that drones from Diego Garcia (the base the President is trying to renew the British lease with) can fly from the middle of the Indian Ocean to England.
Its also a bit silly that Jack has to go to such lengths to convince the President that he is in danger. He is Jack Bauer, whatever crazy shit he did if he just went up to Audrey, the President, or any bigwig in the entourage and said someone is going to try to kill the president with drones they would ground all the drones, fly the Prez back to America, and try to figure it out while keeping him in a jail cell. But I guess that wouldn't make for good TV.
When they took over the drone, it was already at the target so there was no time to react. But they are trying to use them to attack targets in London, which means taking them over and then flying them so many miles to the targets and oh fuck it I give up christ that redhead is hot.

this show is so badass. i think its getting good ratings too.
I wish Netflix had brought the show back, it is something I wanna see all 12 episodes of in one night I hate this waiting shit
and man Cat Stark and Sansa are fucking craaaazy
This is the Catelyn the Lannisters deserved! Not the derp I'll kidnap the imp and take him to my insaaaane sister one.
Oh, is that her? Did not even realize. Good actress, that.
And the drone pilot patsy is the star of the new Star Wars. He plays a shaved wookie.
The terrorist drone pilot's fucked up teeth distracted me all episode. He's got this one big snaggletooth just sticking out whenever he talks.
He's a solid actor for sure, but he looks like he could play an alien on Star Trek with minimal makeup.
I'm trying to work out the 12 episode run talk. The first episode was 2 hours but the rest have only been one hour, so is 24 only going to cover 12 hours or is each ep 2 hours on US tv and Hulu is spliting them up?
12 hours total, there is going to be a 12 hour time jump in one of the upcoming episodes I believe so it still retains its "24 hours" theme
They need to hurry up and have the mid season twist where things get good.
For only 12 episodes they sure waste a lot of them with Jack locked in a room doing nothing.
in a regular 24 episode season of 24 they stage a big wtf episode at the halfway point. something like a nuke in california is midway. with 12 episodes, i figure in 2 weeks this show will crank it up a few notches.
Pretty sure drones shooting at London is kicking it up a notch.
I guess they used the same script generator for this season as all the last.
Every tv show is the same for the same reasons. During ratings week a major event is bound to occur on your favorite tv show. To keep people interested halfway through the season something big happens. Except Arrow, every episode of that show is like a major event.
And we have the mole. Could he have been a more obvious choice?
well, one of them had to be the mole. i think its the british pm on the other end of that phone.
whoever it is, it means catelyn stark is not the big bad. and bauer will probably fuck her shit up in a few weeks.
i wonder if whoever killed chloe's family is involved. the ratings have been picking up, which makes me happy.
whoah they are still filming this show? thats kinda weird, only 6 episodes left. I wonder if they had to re-do the ending or something? I really hope the bad guy on the phone isnt Stephen Fry, he just looks too damn goofy to be evil
Well at least now we have a better explanation than Jack's "well, I was just in the neighborhood, and overheard someone mention killing the President..."
Phone guy sounds like Chloe's boss, Snowden/Assange guy ends up being the top enemy of the state? Sounds about right.
The drones are a cover for a much bigger threat.
Jack does not care about the lives of Thousands anymore. He only starts to roll when the Universe needs saving.
