I know a bit early, but Season 5 begins with 2 two-hour episodes on January 15 and 16. I got season 4 on DVD today and there is a prequel episode on it. Season 4 started last January at the end of the month. I suspect it's starting two weeks earlier to shut down during the Winter Olympics.

NOTE: I am going to include what happens on the prequel so for those that haven't finished season 4 or for whatever reason don't want to know, read no further.

Jack is driving in Illinois wearing a hood. He pulls over and in a separate car, Chloe pulls to the side and gets out.

YankeePride1967
12-06-05, 07:40 PM
Jack has longer hair. Chloe is warning Jack to get out of Illinois as the computer with Jack's information about being dead has been compromised. The Chinese know Jack is alive.

A motorcycle is driving rather ominously around Jack in the car now. Jack notices. And here comes a car speeding around the corner, looks like they are on to him.

YankeePride1967
12-06-05, 07:44 PM
The other car is in hot pursuit of Jack. Jack tries all kinds of evasive manuevers but can't shake him.

12-06-05, 07:46 PM
Ouch, Jack makes a sharp turn and the pursuer can't match it. One fork of a forklift goes right through the car apparently killing the driver. However the motorycyclist watches as Jack drives off. THen the screen goes to black with the following words

I hope that's the case. That's why I liked Season 4 so much. The first three seasons they started in October and frequently had multiple weeks in between shows. I much prefer waiting for January but then seeing it straight on through.

I'm sure he's making quite a pretty penny now and deservedly so. Not only is it 24 hour long shows, it's gruelling filming. It's a relationship that works for both FOX and Sutherland. This show really puts Sutherland back on the map in entertainment and 24 is a highly profitable show for FOX.

YankeePride1967
12-06-05, 08:04 PM
He also has substantial say in how the series is run. After season 1, FOX wanted to abandon the real time format they air in place of doing 24 stand alone episodes. Sutherland refused.

Is this prequel only available on the disc? Or, will it be the beginning of the first episode?

Originally, 24 was supposed to start the 8th and 9th, now it's the 15th and 16th, so I doubt they are taking the Olympics off.

I couldn't agree more. It's my favorite show as well for many reasons including the fact that it runs straight through from Jan. to May without much interuption. I actually wish more shows would do this. The networks could have two seasons. 1. from Sept.-Dec. & 2. Jan.-May. This way fans would not have to endure long breaks between episodes of their favorite shows particularly the Dec. & Jan. periods.

It's true. It seems like all networks care about these days are May and November sweeps. Other than that they'll play whatever.

Plus 24 is just a brilliant show. Not perfect (see Kimberly's whole story in Season 2) -- but seriously great!

I bought season 4 and watched the prequel and what I don't get is whether season 5 is going to be about the Chinese government going after Jack because they realize he is alive or is that story line just going to fade away and Jack will be brought back to CTU because there is another terrorist threat? The prequel just seemed to revolve around Jack escaping an attempt on his life. The prequel that they aired last season on the DVD season 3 showed a good deal of what to expect from season 4. I hope that season 5 revolves around Jack fighting terrorists rather than fighting for his life.

I was wondering that too. I think it'd be cool for Jack to be a fugitive from the Chinese government instead of (again) having another mararthon day of unbelievable (yet extremely entertaining and exciting) cliffhanging surprises/attacks against America.

Exactly. Buy season 4 only if you want to buy it for season 4. If you (not you specifically but anyone) want to watch the season 5 prequel but don't want to buy it, I know most vidoe rental stores rent it.

The company I work for makes portable environmental monitoring equipment and a few months ago I sold some of it to 24's propmaster for use in the show. The propmaster said it will show up in one of the 2hr. episodes (he couldn't recall if it was January 15th or 16th) so if you see someone carrying an HP iPaq with a silver and black probe, that's our stuff! He told me the circumstances for the scene, but I won't spoil it for you regulars. Suffice to say it's going to be a tense episode!

The first 3 seasons, FOX did it the old way. Started it in October, had weeks off and ended in May. They also started with just a one hour show. Around Christmas, there was 4 weeks with no show. Last year they tried it the way they are this year. Four hours in the first two days and then non-stop until ocmpletion. I read that the action starts right off the bat as well.

Damn. Jack Bauer in his very own Die Hard movie.

I'll take it.

(I can live without the dumbass kid, though. The male Kim, ladies and gentlemen.)

I hate that brat. He's nosy and asking too many question. I loved Jack's line: "The only reason you're still conscious is because I don't want to carry you."

ICE COLD.

When he ran into the terminal, I turned to my dad and said "If he screams Jack's name, I'm going to reach through the television and bitchslap him".

Anyone dredding the return of the average and awful Bauer?


BTW: The President from last season didn't die. At least it was never mentioned.

Wow, that was unreal.

This show is the best show on TV, without a doubt.

I haven't watched since season 2 when I was dissapointed with the ending, but so far, so good for this season.

I read that 24 wanted to kill the pres last year, but Fox didn't like the idea of the President of the USA dying so he ended up being in critical condition for the rest of the season. I hope they mention what happened to him this season.

What's the name of the guy who played the sniper that shot Palmer? It's driving me crazy...

According to IMDB, I see that Mandy the hot lesbian assassin will be back in that episode too. good times.
It will have to be in flashbacks. She got shot in the head last year, and they had a corpse.

The season could not have started any better

I cant believe that Logan's right hand man is a traitor!!

I can. If I saw how incompetent he was as a leader I'd do anything to get him out of office too.

However, to have someone that high up as a mole virtually every year is getting a bit redundant.

Jack Bauer is the best character on TV. "You're going to tell me what I want to know, the only question is how much do you want it to hurt."

Awesome.

Umm, no she didn't. She took Tony hostage, Jack found and confronted her, Curtis then knocked her out with a single punch, and then she told Jack where Marwan was after being given a Presidential pardon.

I doubt she'll be back though. Don't trust IMDb considering it's information given by anybody and everybody.

No way, I am almost certain Jack finished her off...

Was it me or was there a knowing look between the president and his guy when Mike told them that Palmer was shot? If so, that was pretty weak for this show...I didn't expect them to make Logan involved for a few shows at least.

Best quote from last night:
"...the only reason you're still concious, kid, is that I don't feel like carrying you." For some reason that make me laugh out loud. Probably because I thought he was going to say something about how much he cares about his mother, etc.
