Okay folks, now I only watch the four hour season premiere of “24” and then I wait for the DVDs because I just can’t stand the cliffhangers. This means that I can’t tell you all that much about where the show is or where it is going in this fifth season, but I do know that after the first four episodes it looked like it was going to be the best season to date.
Well, I do have some news for y’all concerning this fifth season, a little bit of sex appeal is about to show its face as Elisha Cuthbert returns to the fray. Joining her will be William Devane, along with newcomers C. Thomas Howell and Ray Wise as “Day Five” intensifies. The nonstop season continues Mondays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and will clock in with a special two-hour event Monday, March 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Through seven hours of 24’s fifth season, the series continues its amazing ratings performance and casting coups. Season five is outpacing last year’s performance by +19% among Adults 18-49, +20% among Adults 18-34 and +16% in Total Viewers.
In a day where he was implicated in the Presidentâ€™s assassination, held hostage at the airport, and is following leads to terrorists armed with 20 canisters of military-grade nerve gas, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) has had little time to put the pieces of his personal life back together. Recently reunited with former lover Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), Bauer enlists her help to reestablish communication with his daughter, Kim (Cuthbert). When Kim reenters Jackâ€™s life, she does so with her trusted friend Barry Landes (Howell), a therapist who attempts to simmer down a boiling situation. Meanwhile, leadership issues continue to tangle the Administration, and Vice President Hal Gardner (Wise) and Secretary of Defense James Heller (Devane) join the cause against the terrifying situation.
The nonstop season accelerates with a special two-hour event, “Day 5: 5:00 PM-6:00 PM”/”Day 5: 6:00 PM-7:00 PM,” airing Monday, March 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Agent Bauer deals with Christopher Henderson (Peter Weller), the defected federal agent who recruited Jack to counterterrorist work more than a decade ago, along with his wife Miriam (JoBeth Williams). The back-to-back episodes also feature President Logan (Gregory Itzin) muddling through more intense and iffy decisions while CTU commanders Lynn McGill (Sean Astin) and Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) redefine roles.
Damn, I can’t wait to get this set on DVD!
