Episode Review: In Honor Of The 13

March 28th, 2010

Alright, then: I’ll admit: I actually liked episode 13.

Stuff happened, y’know? Chloe ┬ásaved CTU, Renee saved Jack and heck, Jack got yet another chance at a Suicide Mission and then managed to cheat death by the skin of the teeth (or by the Bullet of Renee). Though I doubt that anyone watching truly believed that Jack would be offed by terrorists, I suppose it was nice to be reminded again of Jack’s willingness to Die For Something. Some might call it The Death Wish: one of Bauer’s character traits that have been following him since Day Two.

24 Leaps Ahead – Updated

June 20th, 2008

According to a New York Post online story, the new season of 24 will take place roughly four years after the events of season six. The story notes …

For those keeping score at home, that means that 17 TV years have passed since Season 1, when Bauer first took on the Eastern European bad guys bent on revenge and destruction – and he was said to be 35 years old.

Meaning Jack will be 52! give or take, although he’ll look extremely good for his age, since Kiefer is only 41. Fox it would seem are simply try to laugh it off with quotes like this …

“Luckily, like all great iconic characters, Jack Bauer is ageless.”

Sound off in the comments about what you think.

Update: As a commentor pointed out, the articles maths are out, having double checked the maths, 13 years will have actually passed since the events of Series One, making Jack a more reasonable 48 in Day Seven.

Season 6 UK DVD

October 4th, 2007

The season 6 UK DVD was released on monday, with a lot less fan fare than usual it has to be said, as Prison Break Season 2 released a week earlier still takes up most of Fox’s promotional power.

And while you could question why this is, “not up to 24’s usual standard” etc., the list of extras does still look impressive and could well be the best set we’ve ever had if documentaries “Inside The Writers Room” & “Opening With A Bang” can live up to the 90 minute making of seen on the Season 2 release.

From what I can tell the UK Region 2 release carries exactly the same list of extras as the U.S. release due in December will. I’ll update this post if there’s any significant developments on that, and i’ll have a full review up on the site once my copy arrives.

S6 DVD News

September 5th, 2007

News has sprung forth about the Season 6 DVD’s, as yesterday Fox released a Press Release and DVD cover image for the region 1 boxset. The special features list is quite impressive, including the now customary 12 episode commentaries, which is welcome news, although some of the choses for commentaries still baffle me and having no commentary on the final episode I think is a mistake. But it looks like they’ve attempting to make up for with the other extras, which include 25 deleted scenes, vieweable in three different ways. Also included is a “alternate ending”, which sounds very exciting, given the various rumours which where flying round the internet about ending for S6, all of which weren’t true, maybe we’ll find out they were “almost true”.

It should be noted that this is for the region 1 american release, I have no concrete info that these details will be the same for the UK R2 release, although that Fox can confirm these details almost a month before the UK release hopefully means every is ready to go on a UK boxset.

The UK release is the 1st of October while the US release is the 4th of December, follow link below for more details

Would You Watch 24 Without Jack?

September 3rd, 2007

That’s been the poll question for the last two weeks. The results suggest Jack and Kiefer Sutherland is more central to the show than ever before, and that if Jack was to leave the show in th foreseeable future, that a large chunk of the existing audience would go with him. Full results follow.

Defintely 6%
Give it a Chance 31%
No 55%
Don’t Know 7%

The new poll is along the same lines, but asks if your looking forward to season 7.
