Trailer for New Season

2 months and 22 days (I would put the hours and minutes, but you know how those 24 clocks are),

The trailer is up, I thought I should post it www.24trailer.com

Before you watch it, I just want you to prepare yourself.
The President - No way you would see this coming.
President's Advisor - Goddammit

I won't note anything else, but it's pretty interesting

And in honor of the clip and the coming season, just think about JB saying "Drop your weapon! I'm a federal agent!"

(24+6)*3 Days To Go Until My Life Gets A Little Worse

I have to commend A-Dash on being the first to stir up the memories and the hatred of the show I will no doubt end up watching in the coming months. He is indeed "the first" and it will give him more authority and legitimacy this coming season than he's ever had. All I know is that Jack better make some life adjustments quick, because his shit is boring-- and here's why.

The reason for all of the hype of last season and even more so for next season is that "you've never seen Jack with so little-- he's totally in the gutter." Well great, but as I think we stated last season, I KNOW JACK BAUER IS GOING TO BE SWEET AND OVERCOME ODDS-- that's no longer unexpected. So make the damn show interesting and don't base all the Emmy's and season prestige on how shitty you can make Jack's life and still have him shoot three dudes just in time to save the Postmaster General. I think this started right at the end of the 1st season and I just didn't quite realize it at the time. The director's commentary on why they killed Jack's wife was because "nobody expected it." Not because she got a new contract, not to teach Jack or the audience a lesson about "getting it all." but simply because as the audience we didn't see ANY reason for her to die so they killed her. God, I'm am NOT looking forward to this season.

A-Dash Was Here First,

3+ More Months

Yeah I had to do it. I dont care what you say. I'm first. "The first to what?" you might question. The first to discuss the impending season of 24 (Dia numero seis).

Okay, so we left Jack being tortured by the Chinese over some spilled milk (in the 24 world, killing ambassadors on embassy soil is considered "spilling milk"). Nobody knew where Jack was, except for us (on a boat leaving America, similar to the ending of Fantastic Four, with Dr. Doom leaving to go back to become a less sucky villain). Also, a side note on the FF, as I like to call them; that movie was made by fox as well, nice to see them end their biggest summer blockbuster of 05 the same way they ended 24.

In the time since this occurred some fun stuff has happened in the real world.
1. 24 won lots of emmys
1a. for the debatable worst season
2. The US decided that real life CIA agents can act like JB
2a. Some stupid conservative lady justified the actions of the real world CIA by citing the popularity of 24
2b. No more habeas corpus, gurantee that comes up on the show
3. NorKor decided to set off some nukes
3a. Hopefully they use the puppet from Team America to represent Kim Jong Illa on 24.
4. No more JB's girl (shes on the nine now)

Now I will list the new stars:
Chad Lowe
Peter MacNicol (Ally McBeal),
Regina King (Ray),
James Cromwell (Babe),
Kal Penn (Harold & Kumar),
Marisol Nichols (In Justice),
Alexander Siddig (Syriana)
Harry Lennix (Commander in Chief).

Wow, Kumar (how do you spell that, with a Q or with 3 O's?) is on 24. I thought it was bad enough when Rudy (Rudy, Rudy) was on the show, but at least he got killed quickly. But seriously, what the hell? The fact that they only have people on for a season now stinks. I want Tony, Palmer, and the likes back. (If I was writing the movie, it would take place between seasons 2 and 3, when JB was developing his heroin habit with the mexicanos).

Also, this season takes place 20 months after last season. I think it would be cool if the Chinese use JB to kill people in the US (especially Kumar), but then he will turn and dominate the Chinese.

Honestly, this season cannot be worse then the last one.
