Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer 24
(S08E05) "I think this operation just blew up." - Jack

I think this season just blew up. After loving the first four hours in last week's two-night 24 premiere, hour five of Jack Bauer's eighth bad day crashed and burned pretty hard. While the main plot involving Jack and Renee is worth watching, it still has one big glaring misstep that I had a hard time getting over last night. As for the rest of the minor subplots? We can only hope they tie in to the rest of the story, because right now, very little of it is interesting.

Annie Wersching as Renee Walker
(S08E03/S08E04) "Renee, I know where you are and it's a dark place." - Jack

24's two-night four-hour season premiere continued tonight with the season's third and fourth hours and, by the end of it, we finally got a pretty clear picture of what the larger threat is and where it's headed... at least until next week.

Renee finally made an appearance, Hassan didn't get taken out, and Hastings figured out that Chloe actually knows what she's talking about. But was any of that enough to make up for the numerous shortcomings this season has already displayed?

Review: 24 - 4:00PM-5:00PM/5:00PM-6:00PM (season premiere)

Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland, L) is briefed by CTU field agent Cole Ortiz (Freddie Prinze Jr., R) about the escalating threat.
(S08E01/S08E02) "You don't look like a Grampa..." - Jack's granddaughter, Teri

As if we needed another reminder that, yes, 24 has begun its eighth season and maybe, just maybe, Jack Bauer is getting too old for this crap. Good thing for us, this guy doesn't know how to say no.

Bauer's eighth very bad day kicked off tonight with a bang (literally) and with NYC as the show's newest (gimmicky?) setting, there's hope that season eight can reclaim some of 24's lost glory because, lest we forget, seasons six and seven started off wonderfully, too, only to falter as the clock kept ticking. Can Grampa Jack do the one thing that all old folks yearn to do and turn back time?

24 season eight -- An early look

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jan 14th 2010 10:00AM
Kiefer Sutherland stars as Jack Bauer in season eight of FOX's '24.'"WHERE CAN I BUY A METROCARD?!?!"

Though it's not something you'd expect to hear an angry Jack Bauer scream at an unsuspecting tourist, people familiar with New York City are going to be amazed that he doesn't need to.

Season eight of the real-time drama drops Bauer into the borough of Manhattan and when 24 returns in just a few days (it premieres this Sunday January 17 at 9 p.m. ET and Monday January 18 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX), it's almost comical how easy Bauer seems to get around the city. That's half the fun of it though -- eight seasons in and haven't the terrorists learned their lesson yet? Jack Bauer will always find you.

However, that doesn't mean Jack's alone in this. As many of the previews for the new season have pointed out, Bauer is a retired man, a grandfather to boot, and there's a whole new crop of CTUers ready to pick up the torch.

Details and spoilers on the new season after the jump.

Elisha Cuthbert Joins 'The Forgotten'

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Dec 8th 2009 11:00AM
Elisha Cuthbert, famous for her role as Jack Bauer's daughter (Kiefer Sutherland) on '24,' will be appearing in a six-episode arc on ABC's drama 'The Forgotten.' The Hollywood Reporter says that Cuthbert will take on the role of Maxine Denver, a Chicago professional who is forced to put aside her skepticism when the Forgotten Network helps solve a case.

Cuthbert first appeared on the scene with mini roles in 2003's 'Old School' and 'Love Actually.' She then worked on other film and television projects, including appearing as a judge on the Canadian version of 'Project Runway.' In 2010, she'll breathe life into the animated cat Cleo, a cartoon kitty with wealthy feline parents, in Imagi Entertainment's 'Cat Tale,' along side Jerry O'Connell and Billy Idol.

24: 6:00AM - 7:00AM / 7:00AM - 8:00AM (season finale)

Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) recovers some important evidence in the two-hour season finale of '24.'
(S07E23/S07E24) "You don't know what I've done." - Jack

When 24 first premiered back in 2001, we were all taken off guard. It was so different, innovative, and action packed - like nothing we'd seen on TV ever before. But do you remember why it worked so well? Sure, there was a vast conspiracy that enshrouded the whole day in darkness, but for the most part, it was all about Jack and his family. The Bauers were what made Day 1 so memorable.

You felt horrible when Jack held Teri's lifeless body in those final seconds, and it was because the season focus was weighted towards them and not Drazen or Nina. Because of that formula, the show took off and with each season from then on, 24 became bigger than itself and so did the conspiracies. Then the bubble burst with Day 6 when it all came crashing down - we'd seen enough nukes, bio-pathogens, and Middle Eastern terrorists. The difference? All of that became more important than Jack. After Day 7's stellar finale, I think we can all agree that 24 has found its roots again.

Kiefer Sutherland
(S07E22) "Why did you betray me?" - Jack

Since next week's finale is actually the last two hours of the season back-to-back, I think it's safe to refer to tonight's hour as Day 7's penultimate episode. As is so often the case with pivotal installments that precede a finale (especially with 24), going into it, I couldn't help shake the feeling that the bio-terror threat would be erased for good only to reveal one more crisis ready to spill over into next week. I'm not trying to say that it was predictable, but ... well ... nevermind. It was predictable.

Elisha Cuthbert as Kim Bauer on '24.'
(S07E18) "Kim, I'm dying." - Jack

That, my friends, is what you call a game changer. Initially, I wasn't feeling the vibe of this episode. It was slow, predictable, and the Kim/Jack reunion that we've known about for ages was about as anti-climactic as you can get. But it worked. Kim's return created precisely the distraction we needed so that hour eighteen's final minutes made our jaws drops. When I spoke with Carlos Bernard recently, he said that production was shut down for over a month at one point to reassess the direction of one episode. I'm guessing this was it.

Elisha Cuthbert gearing up for another great day

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 12th 2008 9:02AM
Elisha CuthbertAccording to EW's Michael Ausiello, Kim Bauer will be reunited with Daddy Dearest come 2009. That's right, Elisha Cuthbert has signed a contract to reappear on FOX's 24 this upcoming season. When we last saw her during the fifth season she was being whisked away from Los Angeles by her much older boyfriend, Barry.

She's not expected to return until toward the end of the upcoming seventh season and while she won't be "with" Barry, she will be with a child. Or at least have a child. I'll bet she didn't even tell Jack that he was a grandfather. In fact, is it a sign that 24 is getting a little long in the tooth that our action hero is a grandfather now?

Elisha Cuthbert cast on CBS romantic comedy

Elisha CuthbertJack Bauer's daughter is trading in angst for romance. Actress Elisha Cuthbert has been cast on the CBS pilot Ny-Lon. That's the one-hour romantic-drama-with-comedy based on the British series of the same name that aired on the Channel 4 TV in 2004 (only there it was called NY-LON; apparently the American version is initial cap only).

Three more really bad days ahead for Jack Bauer

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 10th 2006 11:52AM
kiefer sutherlandKiefer Sutherland and 20th Century FOX reached a deal for three more seasons of 24. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sutherland will make at least $40 million for playing Jack Bauer for three more seasons, making him the highest-paid actor in a drama series. Sutherland's title improves from co-executive producer to executive producer, which will undoubtedly rake in some more cash for him. And, the deal also includes a development fund for Sutherland to develop and produce projects for television and the internet (what? FOX has heard about the internet?).

Chat live as Jack Bauer saves the world

by Ryan j Budke, posted Mar 27th 2006 7:58PM
24; jack bauer; kiefer
sutherland; foxSomeone asked last week if there was going to be anyone left standing after this season of 24. To be honest, I have no idea. It's certainly looking like that isn't it? Let's see who's been on for more than one season and is still alive-- Wayne Palmer, the recently assassinated president's brother, who is currently running for his life through sewers from mysterious men. Aaron Pierce, the stalwart secret service agent, who's already had a couple of close calls and was last seen canoodling with the First Lady. Chloe O'Brian, the ever annoyed computer technician who has stayed by Jack's side when most wouldn't. Will any of these regulars make it through the night, let alone the end of the season? Sound off and let me know, then join me back here at 8pm EST to this very post and that's when I'll unveil the location for the super secret chat room. As with all of our chats, you'll need AIM or a compatible messenger, so make sure you have one and I'll see you tonight. Gravitas!

UPDATE:
Come one, come all;  here is the secret location for our 24 Chat! See you inside.

Stall tactics on 24 drive me nuts

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 13th 2006 9:31AM
24 stall tacticsI tried. I really did. I wanted to be one of the cool kids and watch 24, but I can't handle it. Over the summer, my husband and I rented season one of 24 and we suffered through every episode. The show is chock full of obvious stall tactics. Does anybody else notice these? They come in the form of long, drawn-out, repetitive conversations and of unimportant sub-plots. For example, the current season began with various versions of the same conversation between President Logan and his wife about her apparent craziness and her insistence that she's not nutso. Do people in the real world actually have the same conversation over and over again within one hour? I don't think so. And, during season one, the whole storyline about President Palmer's son's involvement in a crime was a total time suck (and, of course, the infamous Kim vs. the cougar incident in season two). While most shows also use sub-plots as fillers (i.e., Lost uses flashbacks), it is most obvious to me on 24 because, quite frankly, who cares about any of the other crap that doesn't involve Jack Bauer?

She's baaaack! - NOT!

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 14th 2006 8:03AM
Hey! Don't kill the messenger. I had it on good authority (USA Today) that Elisha Cuthbert would be back on 24 on Monday night. And, in case they change their story, here's the original quote: "It's official. The magnet of mishaps is returning to 24 tonight. Though actress Elisha Cuthbert took a season off to star in big screen flicks (House of Wax, The Girl Next Door), her character, Kim, will be back to complicate matters for her dad, Jack Bauer." The story printed February 13, 2006.
