Hour Of Bauer – Preview
So here you have it, the trailer for 24 season 6. Keeping in mind that they material shown probably only comes from the first 6 hours or so of the show (I doubt they’ve filmed – or even written – beyond that yet), we can see a few things (props to Wikipedia for some details).
First, they do NOT pick up from the cliffhanger ending of last season where Jack was taken by the Chinese to make sneakers. Instead, they’ve let 20 months elapse, enough so that an election could be held in the wake of Logan’s ousting, Wayne Palmer could become president and Jack could grow one bitchin’ beard (but not as bitchin’ as his between-season-4-and-5 mullet). And judging from the carnage that kicks off this season, CTU is still inept at heading off attacks before they actually occur. But it’s good to see that they’re branching off from just tormenting Los Angeles – Baltimore and St Louis, among other US cities, get targeted by the terrorists (it’s the Middle East’s turn to be evil again) and apparently the only way to stop them is to kill Jack Bauer. Again.
24 begins airing on January 14 and 15 of next year and will almost certainly once again run every week, uninterrupted, until Jack has killed everyone. BRING IT ON.
Footnote – on the 24 website, you can stream the show’s theme song. Five seasons I’ve been watching this show and I didn’t even know there WAS a theme song.
