24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY airs May 5th, 2014!
Jack Bauer surfaces in London...but why? Fox has posted two new segments featuring the cast and producers as they talk about restarting the ticking clock on the legendary series. Here you will find out which of your favorite characters are returning and get to know who else will face off with Jack Bauer.
Synopsis: 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a thrilling new event series set to restart the ticking clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama. The high-octane saga reunites the Emmy Award-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Brian Grazer and director Jon Cassar. It also will retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines.
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland). Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. Now an exile, he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. Tracking Jack are CIA head STEVE HARRIS (Benjamin Bratt, "Law & Order"); CIA agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, "Dexter"), who is both resourceful and ruthless; JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, "Jobs"), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, "The Wire"), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative. Calling the shots is JAMES HELLER (William Devane, "The Dark Knight Rises"), now President of the United States. Heller is flanked by his Chief of Staff MARK BOUDREAU (Tate Donovan, "Damages"), who is married to Heller's daughter -- Jack's former flame, AUDREY (Kim Raver, "Revolution"). Meanwhile, a hardened CHLOE O'BRIAN (Mary Lynn Rajskub, "Firewall"), Bauer's CTU confidante, is now working underground with high-profile hacker ADRIAN CROSS (Michael Wincott, "The Crow"). Guest stars on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY include Golden Globe Award winner Judy Davis ("Life with Judy Garland") and Golden Globe Award nominee Stephen Fry ("Alice in Wonderland," BONES). The harrowing day will have Jack attempting to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.

@ almostunbiased: 'Might?' Might?' How dare you, sir! You WILL watch it or there will be consequences. We'll make fun of you on this thread and do other unmentionable things! I can not wait for this. Jack is back, baby!

 For the life of me I can't figure out how Mania figures out what books, movies, video games, etc. that they are going to talk about and which ones they will ignore.  There's no consistency on this website, no rhyme or reason.  Mostly Mania reads like Comic Book Super Heroes 24/7 and then suddenly out of the blue there's reviews and interviews pertaining to unrelated movies like Les Miserables (the musical) and Lincoln.  For example Mania reviewed every episode of Dexter but acted like Homeland which followed it weekly on Showtime and was a much better conceived & written show didn't exist, or  Mania refused to acknowledge Breaking Bad until the final episode and then gave it a glowing review.  So what is it...are you going to start discussing movies / TV shows that deal with domestic and foreign political intrigue and espionage now (like 24)...or are we just hearing about 24 because someone at Fox dropped a press release and a trailer in your lap and are using you to promote this?

I couldn't watch it past the 1st season. I really loved the concept, the basic plot was intriquing. However the random crap that kept happening to put the mother and daughter in danger was ridiculous. Kidnapping, hired goons, amnesia, cougar, blackout, ruffians. I half expected them to throw in an alien abduction of Kim in the desert, because that was about the only thing they didn't throw in.

I also have to agree with blankczech the reviews do seem very random and often not site related.
