The commercial for Season Seven goes up tomorrow at 12 noon EST (so that means that it's probably already leaked out early Posted Image ).

EDIT: The countdown clock is at zero but the site lists the commercial as coming up at 1 PM. Apparently Fox has a hard time counting. Posted Image

After season 6, I seriously considering dumping this show. Never thought that would happen, because the first 5 seasons were great!

In today's Washington Post in the Reliable Source column at http://www.washingto....102402842.html
there was some information about the new season.

I just saw it too. It looks pretty cool although I'm definitely worried about

(I'll use spoilers since the commercial just went up)
Tony apparently being the bad guy. Despite that, the good thing about it is that they'll have a villain that the audience knows and has an interest in and that's something that has periodically been a problem with the villains on the show.

Not bad, though I can't help but think of
Die Hard 2 when I saw the plane, and Live Free or Die Hard with an organization whose intent is to breach or shut down the United States' computer infrastructure.

Definitely looks pretty good. Didn't really look like 24 though, but the change of scenary was probably needed. I'll miss CTU and their bunker like headquarters. And of course, how does Chloe fit into this? Will she be back?

Nice seeing Kurtwood Smith. Posted Image

So how many more bad guys from Robocop have yet to appear in 24?
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

Even though I was extemely disappointed with season 6 like everyone else, there's no way I won't watch the new season. I think the writers, producers, director and Keifer all know S6 pretty much sucked and I think they'll make the necessary adjustments to get this show back on track. I like that CTU is gone and that they're shaking up the format by getting out of L.A. This trailer really has me excited and I can't wait for the new season to start. Posted Image

Maybe it isn't Tony but actually his "Evil Twin" ™ kind of like when Michael Knight came face to face with his.

Just when I thought I was going to break free, they keep sucking me back. Damn you "24"! Of course I'll be watching. Once again, "Heroes" v "24". Thank goodness for DVRs.

I think the "apology" by Keifer in front of the trailer unofficially confirms it. I had read that the writers had contemplated revealing Tony's return at the end of last season as a tease to salvage what they could, but in the end decided not to and just scuttle S6 and save the reveal to start fresh. Well, they've got me refreshed for another 24 hours! Posted Image

I'm glad they didn't try to use Tony to salvage season 6 as it wasn't worth saving in the first place. I think they definitely made the right choice and I'm totally excited for a fresh start with S7. Posted Image

Great trailer, very exciting.
I'll be interested in seeing how they explain Tony going bad.

Yeah, but

Is Tony *really* Evil Tony? Or has he gone deep undercover, with Buchanan the only other one in the know? That would be my guess, anyway.

That is the other option, and I did think about it, but I think it would feel too much like a retread of
Gael's storyline from season 3.
