    Excellent news all around! I bailed on 24 after season 6, but I've missed watching Jack do his thing.

    Can't blame you- Season 6 is the low point of the series, bookended between two highs (5 & 7). 8 was only partially successful, unfortunately.

    I've always had a tinge of regret at not sticking it out because now if I want to close that loop it would require 48 hours of TV. When it's fed to you and hour a week you don't notice it, but when you sit there staring up at a 48 hour mountain it seems like a Herculian task.

    While 5 was great, I thought 7 a bit meh.Cherry Jones was tremendous as the president, but I thought the terrorist plot was a bit too outlandish.

    Great news about the miniseries, looking forward to it.

    Are we still going to get the 24 movie? Or has that ship sailed?

    I think that never came together right as far as the script goes. If it happens, it'll be different at this point. I can't imagine that at least some of the movie ideas didn't make their way into LAD.

    Yeah, my understanding is that the material didn't really lend itself to a movie script, so they decided to make it into a mini-series instead. My guess is the movie ship has, indeed, sailed.

    Wonder how many hours will pass this time around before the series goes back to its bad old habits...

    Interesting that they've made James Heller the new President. I really enjoyed Taylor and was sad to see her go.

    Does anyone know exactly what party each president belonged to?

    I assumed David Palmer was a Democrat. And that President Keeler was Republican. Logan would then be Republican. Wayne would likely be Democrat then? With Daniels also a Democrat. Which would make Allison Taylor a Republican. So given that James Heller served during the Keeler/Logan era, that makes him a Republican?

    Right on all of them, Minch. I always liked Logan. He was an evil prick, but Gregory Itzin probably gave the most impressive performance of the series, even though he was only active for a few seasons.

    Logan's reveal as the mastermind was brilliantly done. Until then, you thought of him as this bumbling idiot who had no business being president. To learn just how brilliant and dangerous he could be was a great revelation.

    The sad thing about Season 6 was that it started so brilliantly with those first four episodes (honestly, four of my favorite 24 episodes of any season), and had a very intriguing set up with his father and brother, but was then just abysmally executed.

    Yankee, is that the season with the nuke going off? I remember they pre-released the first few episodes, and I got so excited..and then the season was awful.

    Also, Curtis' death was one of low points of the show.

    Season 6 was hilarious because James Cromwell was trying so hard to be evil.

    This.

    Also, I was dissapointed that, after wanting to see Milo return for several seasons, they finally bring him back only to waste the character (not to mention him lacking some of the qualities that made him an appealing character in the first place).

    I agree, T2Q- show does not have a great track record with "bringing characters back"- Tony's wasn't good, either. I've read that he may be a part of this mini-series, as well.

    Turning Graham from the Bluetooth Mafia into Graem Bauer was the biggest miscalculation in the show's history. Just terrible.

    I loved Powers Boothe on the other hand in season 6.

    Powers Boothe is great in everything he does.
