  • 24 - The 2009 Season Thread

    Starts Sunday.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/08/arts/ ... 08fox.html

    When “24” begins its seventh season on Sunday with a two-night, four-hour premiere, much will have changed in the world since Bauer was last on the job. The show opens with Bauer testifying before a Senate committee investigating the use of torture by his dismantled Counter Terrorist Unit . . .
    I'm not sure I'm going to stick with this.

    Set this season in DC, you say?

    Cough! Cough!

    I just think it's amazing that all of this goes down in Los Angeles each and every season. Talk about a bad city to live in. I guess they do have Kobe.

    Until everyone on the show invests in a teleportation machine, things pretty much have to be 20 minutes or less of driving time away. As for being in L.A., I would guess the frequent outdoor scenes would make it hard to fake another city. [How many times has there been a low-budget film based in some "big east coast/midwestern city" that has palm trees growing in the background?]

    I was hoping the scene would shift to New York or Washington DC (or Seattle, for the Asian and computer-industry tie-in) for this season, just to be different.

    Thank you, Kief.

      NY Times review:

      Apparently, not only is the Counter Terrorism Unit gone, but so is Chloe. Boo! Hiss! I really don't know if I'm going to last the season.

        Chloe was in the previews last year before they pulled the plug on airing the show that season.

          Of course, she could always come back. They've done that before many times--put people back in the show after an extended absence. It's possible that MLR just wasn't available for the shooting of the early episodes--she apparently had a baby last July.

              Unless it's the last season. Keifer has said he wants to die on a down note in the series finale...

                Chloe was a whiney, sniveling, unattractive (as portrayed) waste of screen-time! :twisted:

                        "Fringe" is the best new drama on the tube. It's "X Files" plus "Walter".

                          Fringe is good when you want to put your brain on autopilot. Really, why do they even bother investigating every situation? They should know by now that Walter unsuccessfully worked on every single problem back in the 70s but now will be able to solve it in an afternoon back in his lab.

                            Timewise, this puts her (the actor and the character) positioned perfectly for the mid-season tweak: despite motherhood, Chloe returns to the keyboard to bail Jack out of a bad spot. Maybe her infant gets abducted as a result...and/or Morris bites the ballistic trying to prevent it/save the child.


                            Stay tuned! Or, as Elmer would say, "Pweviouswy on twenty-fouwah"...

                              Well, I suppose that's possible, but let's remember that Chloe is fictitious. Just because Mary Lynn had a child doesn't mean that Chloe must have had a child.
