You know I love me my “24”, so of course I was excited when the first trailer for Fox’s “24” Season 8 finally showed up online. And yes, I still can’t believe I just said this is the eighth season for the show. To say that it’s “aging” now would be an understatement. For God’s sake, Jack Bauer is now someone’s grandpa! Another terrorist-infested and conspiracy-laden day starts all over January 2010.
Season 8 of “24” has Jack Bauer going up against terrorists intent on killing an important Middle Eastern diplomat in New York for a meeting with the U.S. President. Cherry Jones returns as President Taylor, along with Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O’Brian. Also back is Elisha Cuthbert as Kim Bauer. Yeah, I could have done without her, too, but apparently she’s necessary given that Jack now has a granddaughter to save. Hopefully the little tyke won’t be as hostage-prone as mommy.
