Blu-Ray Review: Final Season of Fox Hit ‘24’ With Kiefer Sutherland

23 December 2010 10:25 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – 2011 will be an undeniably different year on the television landscape as it will be the first in some time with no “Lost” and no “24.” When the history books are written about the most-influential and important programs of the first decade of the new millennium, they would be incomplete without a chapter on Jack Bauer and the incredible success of Fox’s “24.” The final season is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, closing an important program with a comparably-lackluster installment but a great Bd.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

The question that many people like to ask after a show goes off the air is whether or not it out-stayed its welcome. “24” never again reached the critical or commercial peak that it did in season five but there were still moments of what worked about the program in the final three years. And while there seems to be a bit of revisionist history »

Movies We Love: Ravenous

21 July 2010 8:55 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I said no food.  I didn’t say there was nothing to eat. Captain John Boyd (Guy Pearce) is a coward.  After inadvertently (and indirectly based upon his cowardice) claiming an opposing stronghold during the Mexican-American War, he is relocated for his actions to an outpost in Sierra Nevadas.  There, he finds himself second in command of a rag-tag group of eccentric, fellow soldiers.  Things take a turn for the eerie when a stranger (Robert Carlyle), half-famished and near death, arrives at their door.  The stranger tells them of a lost wagon train he was a part of, and the unspeakable horrors the group resorted to in order to survive.  The soldiers take it as their duty to seek out the lost wagon train but not before their Native American guide explains to them the power of the Wendigo.  It is a myth that whoever partakes in the flesh of man will gain that person’s strengths »

In a press release sent to the web site, the DVD distributor Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced that 24's eighth season will arrive on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 7, 2010 in North America.

However, a mysterious man and a reborn CTU seek his help to prevent the assassination of a Middle Eastern president, Omar Hassan (Anil Kapoor), at the United Nations' headquarters. In fact, the USA and some predominantly Muslim country (Iran?) are about to sign a peace treaty.

This peace treaty stipulates that the Muslim country must give up its nuclear ambitions in the name of peace in the Middle East. Nevertheless, there are people within the Muslim country's delegation, »

Mary Lynn Rajskub Talks the Series Finale of 24

21 May 2010 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mary Lynn Rajskub talks the 24 series finale After eight action-packed seasons, the hit Fox series 24 is coming to an end, with two-hour series finale set to air on Monday, May 24 at 8 Pm Et on Fox. One of the integral parts of the show's success was actress Mary Lynn Rajskub, who portrayed Chloe O'Brian on the hit series. Rajskub recently held a conference call to discuss the series finale and her experiences on the show and here's what she had to say.

First question, in Jack's big speech at the end he tells Chloe how he never dreamed when she first showed up how important she would be to him. I was wondering if you can relate to what your expectations were, you as Mary Lynn Rajskub, the actress, when you first showed up on the set? In retrospect are you surprised as Jack was?

Mary Lynn Rajskub: Absolutely, I like that perceptive parallel there, »

24: Last Episode Bringing Big Bucks for Fox

12 April 2010 7:28 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Fox's 24 TV series is coming to an end and the network is trying to make every last cent that they can from it. Now that the show's officially ending, the network is charging big bucks to advertise on the last episode.

A high-action drama, 24 has been running for eight seasons and revolves around a sometime government agent (Kiefer Sutherland) who does whatever he has to do to defeat terrorists. The current season's cast also includes Mary Lynn Rajskub, Anil Kapoor, Annie Wersching, Cherry Jones, Chris Diamantopoulos, Freddie Prinze Jr., Jennifer Westfeldt, John Boyd, Katee Sackhoff, and Mykelti Williamson.

Last month, Fox, the studio and the producers mutually decided to end the series at the end of this season. You would think that that would have given a boost to the ratings in the last couple weeks but it hasn't happened. »

24: Fox TV Show Ending After Eight Years, No Season Nine

26 March 2010 11:35 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It's been suspected for awhile that 24 could be in its final season but the word is now official. The Fox series is ending after eight seasons on the air.

A high-action show, 24 follows a day in the life of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), a sometime government agent who gives his all to stop terrorists and uncover conspiracies and corruption. This season, the cast includes Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Anil Kapoor, Annie Wersching, Chris Diamantopoulos, Cherry Jones, Freddie Prinze Jr., Jennifer Westfeldt, John Boyd, Katee Sackhoff, and Mykelti Williamson.

The ratings have been in decline for awhile but, like most shows that have been on the air for a long time, the production costs have been rising.

Word of the show's cancellation started to seep out earlier this afternoon. Director and Executive Produer John Cassar tweeted, "News from »

Fox Cancels 24. Next Stop for Jack Bauer is Movie Screens

26 March 2010 4:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

According to director Jon Cassar (via his twitter feed), Fox has officially cancelled 24 and there will be no season 9.  While the rumblings of 24 ending have been online for the last few months, we previously reported NBC had expressed interest in keeping Jack Bauer on the air.  But that seems to be not happening.

But all is not lost for 24 fans, as back in February we reported Twentieth Century Fox had hired Billy Ray (State of Play, Breach, Shattered Glass) to write the script for a feature version of the show.  The premise is Jack Bauer would go to Europe.  And when I spoke to Kiefer Sutherland awhile back, he told me the movie “would lose the real time aspect, which would be a huge freedom for the writers.” He went on to say the film “would be a two hour representation of a twenty-four hour day.”

So what does this all mean? »

24 Has Come to an End!

26 March 2010 4:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

24 has come to end In a joint decision made by 24's star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland, executive producer and showrunner Howard Gordon, Twentieth Century Fox Television, Imagine Entertainment and Fox Broadcasting Company, it was determined that the acclaimed series will end its remarkable eight-season run. Jack Bauer's last day on Fox will conclude when the final two hours of "Day Eight" air Monday, May 24 (8:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt). As the countdown to the series' climactic conclusion races on, the final 11 hours will air uninterrupted Mondays (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) on Fox.

Multiple award-winning series star Kiefer Sutherland reflected on the show's run: "This has been the role of a lifetime, and I will never be able to fully express my appreciation to everyone who made it possible. While the end of the series is bittersweet, we always wanted 24 to finish on a high note, so »

24: Will the Series Be Cancelled or Continue for Season Nine?

10 March 2010 5:44 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Could the clock be running out on Jack Bauer and company? Rumors are rapidly spreading that this could indeed be the final season of 24.

In approximately real time, 24 follows the exploits of heroic (and frequently tortured) Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) as he tries to save the country from all manner of terrorism. The current season features Mary Lynn Rajskub, Anil Kapoor, Annie Wersching, Cherry Jones, Chris Diamantopoulos, Freddie Prinze Jr., Jennifer Westfeldt, John Boyd, Katee Sackhoff, and Mykelti Williamson.

Once a huge ratings draw for Fox, viewership for 24 has declined over the years. At the same time, costs have risen. This season's averaging a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.83 million viewers.

Word is that Fox is preparing to end the veteran drama and the decision will be made in the next few days. Kevin »

Kiefer Sutherland Returns to Work on 24

24 February 2010 4:26 PM, PST | TVStar | See recent TVStar news »

Jack Bauer fans rejoice. Portrayer Kiefer Sutherland will be back at work filming Fox's hit series 24 (TV) on March 1st, just two weeks after undergoing elective surgery to repair a ruptured cyst near one of his kidneys. A statement from Kiefer's rep explains the timing. "While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and Fox decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps." Better safe than sorry, in other words. And the good news is that Kiefer has been cleared for take-off. In a word from the network, "We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season's episodes." So Jack Bauer will be on the clock once again to continue his nail-biting, action packed adventure in New »

24: Kiefer Sutherland Doesn't Want Show to End But...

18 January 2010 6:29 AM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The eighth -- and very possibly final -- season of 24 kicked off last night. As is typical, poor Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is in for a very bad day.

This season of 24 is set in New York, giving the cast and crew a very different backdrop. Cherry Jones, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Annie Wersching are back as series regulars. Others in the cast include Mykelti Williamson, Chris Diamantopoulos, Katee Sackhoff, John Boyd, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Anil Kapoor. Elisha Cuthbert and Bob Gunton are back in recurring roles and hopefully fan-favorite Glenn Morshower will also put in an appearance.

It looks like a very real possibility that this will be the final season of 24. Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly noted that season eight is the last season under the network's current contract. He said, "There are a lot of moving parts, »

Jack Bauer Fights Terrorists and Bad Fashion

17 January 2010 5:29 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Here at TVOvermind, we often receive material from the networks that, out of good conscience, we cannot share with our readers. For instance, last week I got my grubby paws on the first five minutes from the Season 8 premiere of '24,' airing tonight at 9/8c. The whole "good conscience" thing prohibits me from posting it, but as I am an individual of mediocre conscience, I'll give you a play-by-play. But caution! There be spoilers in this article.

The camera tracks the New York City skyline in the early dawn hours as the digital clock, reading "6:00:00" beeps across the screen. Street vendors bustle about, taxi cabs dash by pedestrians whilst horns blare. The camera moves down 7th Avenue until it settles upon a steel and glass building the Garment District. The camera stops, focused on the front door. The dull roar of the city quiets for a moment »
