Re: 24 could be returning
Seasons 6, 7 and 8 were so awful that I don't even care. Just let it die.
The format eventually became stale and silly. You knew that at the top of every hour there would be some "cliffhanger" occurrence to coincide with the ending of the episode. For me that took away a lot of the realism that the 24-hour gimmick was supposed to provide.
