Jack Bauer – he’s BACK!


There hasn’t been anything on TV which has had me cheering, or yelling out at it too much lately. Except for a 5 set match between Roddick and anyone else he’s playing. Because he just inspires that passion in me.  But anyway, I digress.

After the introductory episodes to this season, oh my WORD, I have been hollering* and bouncing up and down on the couch because Jack is back, bebe. Kiefer Sutherland is back (after a short time in prison) as Jack Bauer on Day 8 of another international security crisis and there’s a new team at CTU. Chloe is more sulky and eye-rolling than ever, and Jack’s a grandpa!

I must admit, I found Season 6 and 7 to be a bit stale and not quite as ‘omg, I cannot go to bed until I see the whole day!’ as previous seasons – but I’m thinking this day is going to be as riveting as ever.

Amongst the new cast – Freddie Prinze Jr (yes, teen movie maestro from the late 90s and Mr Sarah Michelle Gellar) as well as Katee Sackhoff, known for being the bombshell from Battlestar Galactica, and playing a data analyst with a few secrets sure to make the day just that little more complicated.

There’s no point in me trying to explain what happens on day 8 – because we all know that in every real time hour of the show (well, 40+ minutes approx.) there are twists and turns, and betrayals, and car chases, and well I could go on, but this is the absolute fun of it.

It started in mid January for the lucky Americans – and begins next week for us Aussies after the Australian Open tennis. Watch it. Turn the lights off, turn the sound up – its brilliant action TV.

* I will explain my sudden use of Texan slang in a future post. Watch this space..
