Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...
Originally posted by Mr ShhTHE SPOILER is prominent throughout.
I think the fact that THE SPOILER is prominent throughout an OFFICIAL TRAILER for the show kinda makes THE SPOILER, you know, NOT a spoiler any more. As such, I ain't talking about THE SPOILER like it's a spoiler, from this moment on. ;-)
It's only natural that if Tony were still alive that he'd turn against the government. I mean, look at it from his perspective: A conspiracy leading all the way up to the President himself took the love of his life away from him forever and left him near death. The government then abandoned him and sheltered the man responsible for the suffering in his life with de-facto clemency. (And remember, in all likelihood, Logan's still alive because we never actually saw him die.) Tony's got every right to be pissed off at Washington.
The question that the trailer doesn't answer, though, is what is Tony trying to do by breaching a (likely mythical) super-firewall and causing two planes to collide with each other on the runway?
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
It'd be awesome if Tony started going by some super-villainy name like THE SPOILER for the whole season. (or probably just the 6-8 episodes he's in before that plot is resolved and dropped and the whole season shifts back to a nuclear threat on LA...)
Looks like the right way to go. It's a great way to tie the seasons together and it's kinda "Last Episode of Seinfeld"-y (although I'm sure the senate hearings will only last 2 hours).
I just hope they have an actual explanation for how Tony survived, and introduce it quickly rather than string us along for some non-answer. We all saw the moment Robocop did the Zombie Sit Up and killed Tony. No way he "faked his own death".
I can't wait for "I'd buy that for a dollar" to show up on 24.
Not having CTU is really not going to much of a departure from usual if they are just going to have another department (FBI) that functions just like CTU, which the trailer kind of made it look like there would be (even includes Chloe).
The Bored are already here. Idle hands are the devil's workshop. And no... we won't kill dolphins. But koalas are fair game.
So what kind of Robocop cast member count do we have? We got Robocop himself, Peter Weller. Kurtwood Smith who played Claren Bodiker. Ray Wise from season 5 as the vice present Hal Gardener. Where are Ronny Cox, Nancy Allen, and Miguel Ferrer going to be in 24?
I'm waiting to hear some kind of Joe Quesada-esque editorial thing like the Tony that died wasn't really Tony. At the beginning of season 5, they switched the bodies of Tony and Michelle at their home during the explosion. The one that Henderson killed was an actor who had plastic surgery.
Or the Tony we see in the trailer isn't actually Tony, and is instead Tony's evil identical cousin, Rodriguez. OR it could be Zartan using a clever disguise, and this is a way for 24 to do a crossover with the upcoming GI JOE movie where Kiefer Sutherland will perform double duty playing BOTH Jack Bauer AND Snake-Eyes in the single greatest action hero team-up of all time.
But you know, they did the plastic surgery trick with that photographer for the guy that was supposed to assassinate David Palmer. And only Jack and the govt. say this guy is Tony Almeida . . . maybe . . . he isn't .

It's more than that. It's awesome and fantastic. Witty dialogue + Charlie the spaz + stories so wrong they'd make Seth MacFarlane say "dude, that's wrong" + Sweet Dee = a show that's easy to get behind.
