Trivia

The Season 3 DVD set contains an exclusive six-minute prequel that sets up events for the beginning of the fourth season. The first scene occurs six months after the conclusion of Day 3 and shows Driscoll firing Jack from CTU because of his drug use. The second scene takes place three months before the events of Day 4 and shows a terrorist sneaking across the U.S./Mexican border, and then killing his accomplices. The third and final scene occurs six hours before Day 4 begins and shows Jack and Audrey in a love scene. The prequel is available on the Region One set, but not Region Two. See "Season 4 Prequel."

Bad Day Number Four
14 September 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

After three seasons of what is close to perfection, 24 shows the first signs of weakness in the opening episode of Day 4. It's not bad or anything, just not as strong as people have come to expect when Fox's real-time thriller is mentioned.

Sticking with the show's traditions, several months have passed since the end of Season 3 - 18, to be precise. During those eighteen months, a lot has changed: CTU is now run by Erin Driscoll (Alberta Watson), and the only familiar face left is Chloe O' Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub). Predictably, a few minutes after the introduction, these people learn of a new crisis: a train has been attacked, and it all might be connected to a well known Middle Eastern terrorist who happens to be in Los Angeles. At the request of President John Keeler (Geoff Pierson), the Secretary of Defense, James Heller (William Devane), sends one of his aides to cooperate with the CTU. That employee, who also happens to be dating Heller's daughter Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), is none other than Jack Bauer, who got a new job after Driscoll fired him for being a drug addict (as part of his cover during a field operation, worth specifying). Meanwhile, the Araz family is preparing something that will change America forever.

From the get-go, Day 4 gives the impression of being something of a copy of Day 2, at least in the villains department, which inadvertently panders to stereotyping, although Shohreh Agdashloo's performance as the presumed terrorist's wife is convincing enough to forgive such a misstep. Less easy to condone, however, is the absence of most of the show's established cast: Dennis Haysbert, Carlos Bernard, Reiko Aylesworth, Elisha Cuthbert - they're all missing, with only Sutherland and Rajskub providing a link with previous seasons. Granted, Sutherland is as much a guarantee of quality as he's ever been, but Watson and Raver struggle to be totally worthy replacements of his usual co-stars (Devane has no such problem, thankfully), the former in particular being saddled with an annoying character no one is likely to care for. Still, the familiar never-ending suspense and soon-to-come succession of clever twists are the second good reason (Sutherland being the first) to give the fourth season a fair chance. This opening hour may not reach the heights of its predecessors, but that omnipresent ticking clock has lost none of its seat-nailing power.
