Jack Bauer was a character from my favourite action/drama series, 24. The show ran on FOX and it had 8 seasons between 2001 and 2010. Each season presented a day, thus there were 24 episodes in a season. Each episode was in real time, as in 60 minutes (minus the commercials). The show was about a fictional intelligence agency called Counter Terrorist Unit, or CTU, which was created to prevent terrorist attacks on US soil. Jack Bauer was a member of CTU and he pretty much always saved the day. After the series ended there were rumours about a 24 movie but we never got to see that, have we?
Now for the good news. FOX is bringing 24 back! It is called 24: Live Another Day. I know those of you, who have seen 24 are glad to hear the news, as I am, and those of you who haven't, couldn't care less. Btw I suggest you do watch it, you won't be disappointed. Hopefully if the ratings will be high enough, then this won't just be a one season thing.
Although I'm really excited about this news, there is a “minor” problem. The season will only have 12 episodes, WTF?! They are saying they will “skip the less interesting hours”. First of all, 24 didn't have a single uninteresting episode, each of them was highly entertaining and they all ended on cliffhangers so you couldn't wait to see the next one. Still I can't wait to see Jack Bauer back in action, but I'll have to wait a whole year for that to happen.
