Fox is in talks to bring back Kiefer Sutherland the long-running action drama 24 for a limited run.

Quote:
Since the network is revving up a division that will eventually churn out event miniseries like a remake of Shogun, a revisit to the successful 24 franchise could be just the ticket.

Insiders caution, however, that talks are early. If the dream becomes a reality, the series’ longtime executive producer Howard Gordon — who reportedly pitched the return in the first place and has since moved on to Showtime’s grown-up domestic terrorism hit Homeland — would return with the show.


Dancing Dancing Dancing Dancing Dancing

This would be the best.

I'd watch it.

I'd also like to see more mini-series. They tell longer stories than movies but don't get bogged down with filler episodes and uncertain future plots for the writers.

The first 5 seasons were very good, the last 3 (?) were almost unwatchable. I'd be pumped if it came back, but only if it were well done, which I have my doubts about.

I liked the last season, and 7 wasn't terrible. Season 6 was the only season where watching felt a bit like a chore at times.

Logan's abduction was one of the highlights of the series. I have his freakng out in the limo as a ringtone for one of my buddies who also loved 24. "Do you know who it is.......it's Jack Bauer!!! Don't just stand there......he's coming for ME!!!!!"

OMG when Jack is pacing down that tunnel toward the limo looking like a FREAKING BOSS. I had legit excitement all over me.

i would so be in for this, however I do feel they wrapped it up quite well

That was one of the greatest scenes I have ever seen.

IMO it goes

-S2
-S5
-S1
-S3
-S7
-S4
-S8
-S6

2 is my favorite because its the first season i started watching. Watching that season brings up all kinds of memories from 2002-2003.

This is by far my favorite show and i'd be pumped to watch a new season. But the quality started dipping fast the last 3 years. S6 being the worst. S7 was a nice reboot but not as good as the early years. S8 showed it was getting really stale until the last few episodes.

24 is one of my favorite all time shows.

HOWEVER, I would only be for this if they plan to do it justice. Meaning, no rehashed storylines or dull plots.

Thats why the later seasons pale in comparison the the first 4 or 5.

Agree with everything.

6 actually started off amazing. the first 6 or so episodes were great. The final 12 episodes of that year were very meh and so predictable.

I dont really liked how it wrapped up. I didnt necessarily DISLIKE it, but I didnt really like it either.

I mean...he just disappeared....again. I guess the only other thing they couldve done was kill him, but I still expected more from the series finale than what we got.

BUT, they couldve done worse, so I was okay with it.

Season 2 seems to be most peoples favorite. Any season that starts off with Jack Bauer cutting off a child molesters head has to be good.

For me...

2
4
1
3
5
8
7
6

I'm re-watching the first few episodes of Season 2. I love it but some things don't add up. Obvious spoilers...

So Jack is the key to finding Joseph Wald, who is an important part of the investigation to find the nuke. The President of the United States even calls in him personally. They supposedly have backup "at a distance" and even give him tech support by creating a fake profile of a guy who did jail time in Gainesville. But after that he's completely forgotten about. They don't put a tracking device on him or tail him to CTU (which would have been a pretty big deal). CTU seems to forget all about him. Then he kills all the gang members and calls the White House staff, gives them the address of Wald, and SWAT don't show up for 45 minutes...this is the same guy who's the most important link, by far, to a nuclear bomb going off sometime that day, any minute really.

Not one to usually nitpick but this stood out to me on a re-watch.
