    What makes me laugh about it is how the cougar 'story' has become legendary. The cougar probably had 30 seconds of screen time. It looked at Kim in one scene at the end of an act & then was seen in one of the boxes when the next act started but the way people bring it up, you'd think the cougar had a 4 episode story arc. :)

    True, the season 1 amnesia lasted much longer and was just as bad. :D

    (To be fair, I do realize that the writers didn't have many better options because of previous episodes and the need to keep Jack from knowing information there, but still).

    That's a rough one and the storylines involving Jack's estranged brother and father in S6 aren't much better.

    Bringing back Mary Lynn Rasjkub is a MUST.

    Yeah, that whole season was basically throwing all these villains into this season, and seeing what sticks. The worst of all, was Chang. And too bad we never get to see Jack torture Chang, because seeing him onscreen just made me want to throw something at the TV.

    He shot himself in head in the series finale but paramedics (or doctors?) did say that he would survive the injury.

    I agree. Wrap a bandage around his head like he's got an old timey tooth ache and he's back in it.

    One of my all time favorite moments in the series is when Jack attacks Logan's limo in S8 and Logan is cowering and screaming "That's Jack Bauer!"

    Probably my favorite character on the show, just beats out Nina. Would love to see her back again.

    They're bringing back alot of the writers that were on the staff in the later seasons and probably the creators as well:

    http://www.vulture.com/2013/05/24-will-reunite-original-writing-staff.html

    In the article, showrunner Howard Gordon says "I’m really just happy we have time to get the scripts right instead of the usual mad dash to September." Hopefully that and not the number of episodes will really determine how good these new episodes are.

    They also mention wanting to bring back some other CTU characters. I assume that Chloe is a guarantee to return but I wonder if they'll try to bring back Freddie Prinze (who I thought worked pretty well on the show).

    Unfortunately, they killed off so many of the best characters, Michelle, Curtis, Bill, Prez Palmer, Tony, Milo, etc, that there are only a few to bring back, e.g. Agent Pierce, Cole Ortiz.

    I think Tony is still alive.

    Tony was taken away at the end of season 7, after revealing his main reason for what he did. But I don't think he was killed off.

    Not too many left from season 1 that are still alive.

    I thought Tony got shot and killed in the shootout at the end of season 7?

    ^ Just wounded and arrested.

    Off the top of my head, the characters that I could imagine some way of returning are Chloe, Kim, Tony, Audrey Raines, Pierce, President Logan, President Taylor, Cole, Arlo and Martha Logan. Honestly, I don't think they're going to rely too heavily on continuity since the show will have been off the air for 4 years so I think Chloe will be back, maybe Tony will be needed to ID a terrorist & have to work with Jack and maybe there will be a phone call with Kim.

    Yep, one of my biggest disappointments when Edgar was killed off.
