I think this is very smart actually. Keifer's new show was just canceled so he's free. I like 24 alot for first 3 seasons or so...then it just got repititve so I stopped watching. I think the show needed a break, but why not bring it back? Each season was always it's own entity anyway right? Fox could bring it back for just one season if they wanted to......Fox's primetime lineup is garbage anyway.
i actually liked 24's last season, everything before that kind of sucked imo. before the finale season i think the most i enjoyed 24 was beginning of season 5, but didnt like the remainder of it
it wouldnt be too hard to write up a tie in as to how jack bauer returns, but they need to steer away from the white house/president stuff. of course the president usually has an important role in the seasons... but i want more focus on the terrorist/threat attack and everything surrounding it
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.
This is a bad move since the show started getting tiresome in concept around the 4th season.. Not to mention how played out it got by its last season.
If they decide to bring it back the only things they should keep from prior seasons is Jack and the whole 24 hour concept. They should come up with a whole new premise and job for Jack. No more terrorist and work infiltration bullshit.. They should actually work on building some solid characters and put them in fresh situations for them to deal with. It could work but it would take innovating personnel to carry out the artistic work.. and I doubt Fox will hire any people like that. They are gonna basically bring back the same people and make them do the same work simply to get the same ratings that they were getting before. That is gonna make 24 shitty like it was at the end of its run.
Regardless ill always stay a Jack fan for life.. lol

The new season's plot: Michelle is alive and she's evil!
