    I got caught up with all 7 seasons of this staggering and exhausting show over the summer and am primed and set to see Jack return to provide the morgue with more business.

    I'm not even going to watch the trailer, I want to go into it completely blind.

    There doesn't seem to be anything too revelatory in there. Unlike the commercials for S7 that showed Tony back from the dead.

    I think it's funny that after S3, Jack will kill more people in one action-heavy episode than he did in the entire first season.

    And say what you will about the sixth season but Jack biting that guy's throat out and killing all the guys with the nuclear bomb are pretty cool scenes.

    Do you realize that in just 7 days Jack Bauer has killed more people than Jason in all of the Friday the 13th movies combined?

    Love the Santa interrogation.

    On a flight home this past week one of the DirecTV channels
    was showing a behind-the-scenes look at 24: Season Eight.

    From what I briefly caught....

    The gameshow host from SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE appears
    this season.

    Jack's daughter arrives in NY with a baby in her arms

    Still debating whether I'll watch this or just wait for the DVDs. I suppose in the end it will be Sunday and I'll be too curious to resist.

    Was there a bridge episode on the last DVD set like they've done in the past?

    Well, it looks like Kiefer has ruined the Jack Bauer mystique completely after that appearance on Letterman. OMG, I'm dying laughing at that segment -- the best Anti-gambling argument ever. I'll give him credit for paying up on that bet.

    I have to wonder if that bet was even real or more of a publicity stunt. My guess is the latter.

    Hooray, Jack is back tonight! And then tomorrow night for its customary 4-hour kick-off to each season.

    The show will probably seem alot slower since you have to wait week to week to see episodes. Or at least, that's a very common complaint with 24 (or Lost or other serialized shows) when people come off watching all the previous seasons on DVD.
