Kiefer Sutherland said in an interview with Extra that season 8 of his hit FOX drama “24” will be the most realistic story line yet. Two new cast members, including Freddie Prinz Jr, will enjoy a day in the life of Jack Bauer in New York City no less. Yes a day in the life of Jack Bauer. Everybody knew he didn’t die, why else would they have brought Elisha Cuthbert back again. I love having EC on screen as much as possible, but as is the case with certain aspects of the show, her redundant role is played out. How many times can she be taken hostage in 10 years? Kim will undoubtedly have a big role in the beginning of season 8, and where the writers take her character from there should be interesting. As for Jack, Sutherland said it’s the first time that JB can actually smile and enjoy himself. Not sure if that’s a good sign of what’s to come. I’d rather see him screaming, swearing, and shooting. I guess I’m getting ahead of myself a tad. Everybody knows that “24” wouldn’t’ be “24” without Jack Bauer upping his on-screen kill count. That count currently sits at 223. Between season 8 and the movie that will undoubtedly follow, surely that total should surpass 250.
