It's about damn time. I'm so sick of seeing Jack yell at everyone in 30-second commercials. So, I guess Jack has a partner? Is he going to start complaining about being thisclose to retirement halfway through the season?

I've kept away from most spoilers, other than the basics. Palmer obviously pulled through, seeing how he's in all the ads. I'm concerned that they won't fully explain how he escaped that, but we'll see.

In any case, it should be better than most garbage on TV. Here's hoping old Kimmy found herself something useful to contribute at CTU. Or she could just parade around in business attire for 22 hours, making eyes at Tony.

By watching the 24 ads I want to know what Jack did earn the trust of the bad guy that they keep talking about.

OK, decent enough premiere. I'm still soaking it all in.

So, Jack is now dancing with Mr. Bauerstone? Gotta admit I didn't see that coming.

Not sure I liked the (lack of?) Palmer escaping death explanation. Maybe we'll get further details. The Doctor/Girlfriend is... well, I dunno yet. I just hope she's not Sherry Part Deux.

Oh Kimmy, your fancy computer skills are nice, but let's just try to stay out of the line of fire with your CTU boytoy.

Good stuff for the most part. Now, I must go buy Ford products.

Ok, did I hear correctly when they said that they captured the people responsible for the attack on Palmer? So that means they wrapped up the dude on the boat, his boss who we saw for all of 2 minutes, and the girl from season one who gave Palmer the virus all in the offseason? That's kind of disappointing that they fixed those loose ends in one line like that.

Good enough first episode though. No head removal, but a pen stabbing is always cool.

MUST BUY FORD!!!

oh..sorry...anyhow..for me the hour just went in a flash. This was a great premier as it starts hinting at all the things that happened during those three years plus stayin within the new story plot that is slowly developing. Jack as a junkie! Heel turn from the Pres Bro? or Anne? To many ways to go on this plot.

Death Toll: Salazar's Lawyer...and a bad bad way to die might i add. Who else? Should we count the body that contains the virus? That's about it for this week, I'm guessin it will definitly shoot up next week.

Jeff Bauer should do a spinoff from the commercial, that's all I'm sayin!

Forget Jeff Bauer, I want to see a sitcom with the helicopter pilot with the camera eye and the excess meat... I mean, do all espionage incidents get resolved by exchanging gifts of steak?

I thought it was good.

I also thought the guy working across from Kim looked like Derek Zoolander.

Body count

-Virus Patient #1
-Shane, the attorney
-I counted 10 stiffs in the truck

-I give four episodes for before the tension of the situation causes poor Kim to have to remove her jacket. She's got to dance with what brung her

-Chase needs to become this seasons Jamey Farrell or Darlene Connor sooner rather than later.

-I am so hoping this season doesn't become "Drugs are bad, mmmkay"

-Wendy Crewson? Just what 24 needs. More Canadians.

I think the drug issue is really just there so that we believe Jack might somehow fail or mis-step. I mean, after the first two seasons, we're used to seeing Jack as all but invulnerable. Now we have to watch him fight terrorists while he's detoxing.

I think the Jack the addict plot is very stupid and disappointing. I mean, as if Jack Bauer's life wasn't angsty enough, now he has a bad heroin addiction...geez cut the guy break.

This was as ok premiere, but I didn't expect much from just the first episode. I was wondering after watching the ads if they were indeed going to make Jack a junkie. Not sure about him having Justin Timberlake as a partner, though.

I was kind of having a tough time with the fact that Jack was undercover for a year. Why would a high-ranking official be the one to go undercover with a drug lord? Don't they have agents for that? I also had a tough time with Kim now being at CTU at suddenly becoming a computer whiz.

I guess the decision to have this season take place "Three Years Later" is an interesting one, though nobody looks any older, so much as they do more tired.

Anyway, looking forward to the rest of the season.

What job is DB Woodside playing with respect to the President? I heard Palmer make a crack like, "... and mom called him the timid one," which makes me think that they are brothers, but I'm wondering what staff position he holds that he can boss the president around like that. Is he just a campaign advisor, or is he the chief of staff or something?

(And if they are brothers, how would Spike feel knowing he killed the president's mom?)

DB Woodside is Wayne Palmer, who is replacing Mike as his Chief of Staff.

I think everyone should go out and buy a Ford F-150 so they pay to have every 24 be commercial free. There's something drastically different about this year's (and last year's) season premiere where everything is very fluid and no one has time to take those bathroom breaks and meals we never see.

I really like how they started things this year, because the story could go anywhere at this point. And they do seem to be tying in elements of Season One as they're showing more of the terrorists side and how they're going about things. Last year, all we got were three middle eastern guys in a van for 12 episodes and a wedding with a vague tie-in. The Gaines stuff at the beginning of Season One, while cheesey at times, at least added another interesting plot-related side.

I was a little disappointed that there was no tranq dart/"I'm gonna need a hacksaw" moment this season, where Jack just randomly shoots someone for seemingly no apparent reason. I was really hoping that when Jack started throwing stuff around that he'd chuck something as Chase as he started walking into his office or something.

By the way, it's great to see Jack back in the big office.

I can't wait for Jack to beat the living shit out of Chase. That's going to be awesome. Until then, I guess we're stuck with "Jack, are you all right, Jack? Look, I don't mean to tell you how to do your job, but I'm the young rookie who's looking to replace you. Jack, you're my idol, but I have to tell you how to get things done. Are we cool, Jack?"

Shut the fuck up, Chase.

I guess you mean Laura Harris aka Marie Warner. I guess they killed her cause she is now Daisy Adair a Reaper on Dead like Me.

But anyway, a lot happens in offseasons, I am kinda glad they did it like that cause then too much of Season 3 would be spent wrapping up Season 2.

FOX's 24 Spin-Off?
Credit: ComingSoon.com

A 24 Spin-Off & Family Guy Movie Going Direct to DVD?

Joel Surnow, the creator of 24, and Fox Home Entertainment are in talks to create a direct-to-DVD spin-off of the real-time series, which has become one of the studio's top DVD sellers.

Surnow said they are tossing around ideas about a spin-off that would be done with an all-new cast and take place in real time, as does the TV series. "The series might touch on such things as a hostage crisis, heist or other dramatic situation that could be told in a real-time setting."

Surnow said he and Fox are considering doing an 8-hour series with different episodes similar to how a TV show runs. The direct-to-DVD series would be in production during the run of the TV show and build off the 24.

Fox is also in talks with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane about a direct-to-DVD Family Guy movie. "Family Guy Vol. 1" is the top-selling TV on DVD release of the year, with sales of more than 800,000 units since its April bow.

No, he's talking about Mandy the plane-bomber, played by Mia Kirschner.

And I'm guessing that the whole conspiracy hasn't been taken down yet, just a few people involved whom the authorities believe constitute the whole thing.
