Welcome to the 24 Discussion Forum for Day 6. Jack is back and is having another bad day. After being tortured for 18 months, a new day dawns. After trying to do something good with his life in Africa, Jack has been subpoenaed and forced to return to Washington to testify before Congress. But I have a feeling that Jack may have other plans.

My name is Fuskie, and I am your 24 Discussion Board moderator. Please do not hesitate to let me know what you are thinking.

The way this board works is each hour episode has it's own individual thread. Previews, recaps and your comments will be posted in the appropriate hour's thread. If you want to talk about past seasons, the DVDs, or the upcoming 24 movie, feel free to post in the appropriate forum.

24 deals with adult themes with plenty of action and just a touch of "good-natured" violence. Please remember that this is a family board. That means mind your language and respect your fellow 24 viewers who may have opposing opinions from yours.

So strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride.

Fuskie

Who welcomes you to Morty's and hopes you enjoy the 24 Discussion Board...

Does anybody know how many years (in 24 time) have actually passed between day 1 to now? I know Jack spent 20 months in the Chinese prison between Day 5 & Day 6 but I am trying to figure out how many down years there were between each day :animated_scratchchin:

Does anybody know how many years (in 24 time) have actually passed between day 1 to now?

Turning to Wikipedia, I found the following:

Day One

Starts and ends at 12:00 AM. In Day 1, Jack Bauer's wife and daughter are kidnapped by a terrorist group plotting to kill presidential candidate David Palmer. A mole inside L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU), Jamey Farrell, is exposed, but does not provide any information that could help the investigation. When it is revealed that the man behind his family's kidnapping is someone from his past, Jack eventually realizes everything that has happened has been to do with both him and Senator David Palmer personally, while information is uncovered that there may be another mole inside CTU. Jack ultimately has to balance his professional agency role with his family life.

Day Two

Starts and ends at 8:00 AM. In Day 2, approximately eighteen months after Season 1, Jack is dealing with the death of his wife, Teri Bauer, and the estrangement of his daughter. Jack is no longer working for CTU, but when the White House receives intelligence that a nuclear bomb will be detonated in Los Angeles over the course of the day, Jack is forced into action. President David Palmer counts on Jack as the only man he can trust to find the terrorist cell in possession of the bomb and to stop its detonation. Featuring political and social turmoil, more lives will be at stake as another conspiracy arises regarding a taped conversation about an attack on America, which was uncovered after the bomb crisis.

Day Three

Starts and ends at 1:00 PM. In Day 3, three years after narrowly averting a war with three middle eastern countries, Jack returns from a one-year deep undercover operation, infiltrating the Salazar drug family. At the same time, a van drops off a dead body infected with a bio-weapon at the National Health Services. CTU then receives a phone call threatening to release the virus if Ramon Salazar is not released from prison in 6 hours. Jack has a new partner, Chase Edmunds, who is also romantically involved with Kim, who has now become an employee at CTU. Jack is also fighting a heroin addiction he picked up in his undercover assignment which close family and friends are unaware of.

Day Four

Starts and ends at 7:00 AM. It's been 18 months since Jack Bauer averted a deadly crisis in Los Angeles. Subsequently, he was fired from CTU, and has a new lease on life, as a senior advisor to Secretary of Defense James Heller. He has also found a new love in his life in the form of his boss's daughter, Audrey Raines. But an impending hostage crisis, concerning his new boss, leaves Jack's new life in shambles. Jack finds he must go back to his old calling as a CTU agent, to save the life he has made for himself. As the day unfolds several contingency plans are revealed, all devised by Turkish terrorist Habib Marwan. Each of Marwan's attacks proves even more devastating than its predecessor and CTU races to find him before he can unleash unprecedented terror upon America. To complicate matters, a secret Chinese Consulate mission goes wrong, setting up serious consequences Jack will face in future seasons. Jack seems to realize that no life of his own is possible while working for CTU.

Day Five

Starts and ends at 7:00 AM. Eighteen months after Day 4, Jack is living under a new alias, as Frank Flynn. He is currently living with Diane and Derek Huxley, a family near the Mojave Desert, in California. Meanwhile, an unknown figure orders the assassination of the four people who know Jack is alive

Here's a link to an article by Variety online magazine stating that this may be the final season of 24:

Is this 24's Last Season?

I, for one, had high hopes for this season at the beginning but have become really disappointed. The storyline is becoming very tiring. Is any else besides me totally sick of the side story about Dana's creepy boyfriend problems- which now have become her fiance's as well? And who really wants Renee to end up with Jack? There is absolutely no chemistry between those two, imo. The only thing still going for 24 is Kiefer Sutherland, and he alone is why I still watch it-but I do admit I'm becoming a bit bored by the predictablility of the show.

Report: NBC Eyes 24 Pick-Up

Mar 15, 2010 11:32 AM ET by Gina DiNunno

24's days may not be numbered.

NBC is considering picking up the real-time drama should Fox cancel it, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Last week, it was reported that 20th Century Fox, the studio behind 24, and Fox network were close to ending the series after eight seasons because of an increase in production costs and decrease in ratings.

Production for Season 8 is scheduled to wrap March 24.

Reps for both the network and studio declined to comment.

Do you think NBC should restart 24's ticking clock?

No, but I do think it could be successfully made into a full-length movie...as long as they get the right director (Christopher Nolan would be an awesome choice, imo) and writing staff.

I would be interested in seeing what a little rejuvenation could do to the series.

Fuskie

Who thinks the real question is whether NBC would infuse energy into series development or try to make it conform to network standards...

A new CTU that has pretty much bit the dust yet again...tonight's episode was a bit better though, I have to admit. I actually enjoyed it and I can't believe I was actually surprised by the boyfriend not really being shot but using it as a ruse to get the girlfriend into CTU with a bomb. Talk about cold! brrr.

Won't someone on the show PLEASE just pull out a gun and shoot Dana so we can get rid of her ANNOYING side plot??

And yet, how much luck was it that CTU allowed the love struck kimwit to just drive her car into CTU? Even Kevin had to park up top.

Fox confirmed today that after eight seasons, 24 will air its series finale on May 24. Star Kiefer Sutherland told EW.com that producing a ninth season for another network like NBC was not an option because he and executive producer Howard Gordon were ready to call it quits.

I gave up on 24 a long time ago. It became the Fugitive and honestly, even though I like Kiefer Sutherland okay, I always thought he wasn't tough enough for the role or handsome enough or believable enough and the same old cliffhanger endings grew tiring. I know people will disagree but IMO, he just wasn't. I'm with kayo that it might do well as a movie but they better move quickly. Dunno. My favorite person on the show was the husky-voiced, dark-haired foreign beauty who had the terrorist son.
