NO!

No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No. For those of you who don’t want to count that’s 24 No’s to this.

Fox is officially making time for more 24, albeit sans original star Kiefer Sutherland.

The network announced on Friday that it has ordered a pilot for 24: Legacy, a potential new series that will feature an “all-new cast of characters” yet retain the “real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines” of the original.

This is just wrong.

I was privileged to participate with the great crew at Blogs 4 Bauer. The writers and readers there were true fans who weren’t above poking a bit of fun at the show and characters. But it was called Blogs 4 Bauer for a reason. 24 without Jack would be like:

  • Christmas without presents
  • Halloween without candy
  • Eggs without bacon
  • Peanuts without Charlie Brown
  • The Three Stooges without Moe
  • Rocky without Stallone
  • Philadelphia without Cheese Steaks
  • Movies without Popcorn

You get the idea. Wyatt, and the rest of the B4B crew, help me out here.

  1. Not just no, but HELL NO!

    24 without Jack is also like:

    – Tick without the tock
    – Ka without the boom
    – Hack without the saw

    And like Jack, I like my hacksaws.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Steveegg! As great as it would be to get the band back together, this idea is dish towel down the throat bad.
