Live Another Day

One of the most anticipated things for me in 2014 is the return of Jack Bauer. The 12 episode mini-series ’24: Live Another Day’ was recently pushed closer, from it’s original summer 2014 release to April 2014.
For eight years Kiefer Sutherland pushed the boundaries of prime time television as Jack Bauer, with non-stop action, torture, and all sorts of intense antiterrorist adventures.
2014 sees Bauer return after being left on the run from the U.S. government in the 2010 series finale. Since then, the producers have been trying to get a feature length film green lit, but weren’t able to figure out the logistics. The decision to go ahead with a miniseries made way more sense, given the minute for actual minute ‘real-time’ pace of the show.
The new run will be set in Europe, starting in London. This will definitely give a freshness to the series, as will the 12 episode constraint. There story will move along much faster, without the need to put filler plots in, in an effort to stretch it all out over 24 hour length episodes.
April can’t come soon enough. Until then, I guess it’s time to rewatch the series on Netflix!
