Evan Katz Interview

May 30th, 2007

“At the beginning of every season, we sit down – maybe eight or nine of us – in a room,” says Evan Katz. “We talk for about two hours a day for weeks and weeks. It’s draining, but what emerges are ideas about story construction, and villains, and settings. We leave that room with a good idea about the first four episodes.”

Evan Katz has been a writer on the show since series two, in this interview he offers some frank answers about the writing process on the show and it’s future.

Episodes 23 & 24 Reviewed

May 29th, 2007

“The first 20 minutes is guilty pleasure action, pure and simple, but you’d have to be dead not to love it, and it rounds out the die hard homage’s from this season perfectly. Escaping from an off shore oil rig, hanging from a helicopters rope ladder, seconds before f-18’s blew it to kingdom come, no action hero alive would say no to that.”

Episodes 20,21 & 22 Reviewed

“After finishing the main threat storyline early, the assumption was that the show would simply repeat old b-plots to get them to the finish line, and if we’re honest there is certainly some of that in these three episodes. But I think that would be a harsh generalisation when it comes to these episodes.”

Clip From “24 Minutes”

May 18th, 2007

As i’ve posted previously, the 400th episode of The Simpsons (or was it 399th?) will be a 24 parody called “24 Minutes” starring Kiefer and Mary Lynn

Anyway, a brief clip from it has surfaced on the web. The episode airs this sunday on Fox in the U.S. and i’m sure a U.K. airing on Sky One can’t be far behind.

Fox Orders Two More Seasons – Update

May 16th, 2007

Jack’s back – and on board to save the world at least two more times.Fox has ordered two more seasons of “24,” keeping the Emmy-winning drama on the net through the 2008-2009 TV season. Announcement comes on the eve of Fox’s Thursday upfront presentation. Show remains a powerful player for Fox, despite ratings dips and critical knocks this season. Exec producers for “24” have already told several publications that they plan to make some changes on the show next season – but the twist will remain the same: Each episode covering one hour of real time as special agent Jack Bauer races against the clock to stop something bad from happening.

It seems clear to me that either Fox really doesn’t care about the ratings dip and the negative reviews for this year, or that they have faith in whatever “changes” have been decided for next season.

Another report on this adds a few more details

Aside from Sutherland, “24” will return with a new cast (some old favorites might return in different roles) and a new, non-Los Angeles location, with the producers even contemplating telling the story from two locations.

Now these are two tried and tested headline making statements there, that we are used to hearing everything six months since the end of series one. Take them with a pinch of salt, and expect with anything does come of them that they will be heavily qualified.
