Jack Bauer and the case of Now Where Did I Park My Car…
In spite of rumors that Jack Bauer would be playing peek-a-boo with his grandchild for 24 episodes of this season of 24, it appears the writers came up with something a tad more action-y. Who knew that Jack wouldn’t be content settling down and enjoying the simpler things in life? I knew, because men who gauge out eyes with Bic pens don’t just trade that in for fishie faces and ants on a log.
Below is a trailer and a featurette for the brand spankin’ new 8th season of 24. Yes, Jack has had seven miserable, exhausting, terrorist-filled days and it looks like he’s in store for another one. Maybe this season ends with him battling the lack of oxygen getting to his brain. In other words, a stroke, like most normal people would have faced by now.
The official synopsis goes as such:
"Season Eight resets in New York City where a retired JACK BAUER (Sutherland) is unwillingly drawn back into the intense action after learning of a plot to assassinate Middle Eastern peace-keeping leader OMAR HASSAN (Anil Kapoor). Meanwhile, RENEE WALKER (Annie Wersching) and CHLOE O’BRIAN (Mary Lynn Rajskub) return alongside CTU newcomers DANA WALSH (Katee Sackhoff), BRIAN HASTINGS (Mykelti Williamson) and COLE ORTIZ (Freddie Prinze Jr.)."
The new season of 24 takes your television set hostage on Sunday, Jan. 17 (9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) and Monday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
