One small complaint about this extended teaser for “24: Live Another Day”: FOX, you cut together a two-minute-plus trailer without a single “Dammit!” from Jack Bauer?
Aside from that, however, the trailer offers up a lot of the Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) fans knew and loved over the life of “24,” as well as a healthy amount of exposition: Jack is a fugitive after the events of Season 8. He turns up in London at the same time as President Heller (William Devane). The CIA sends Agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski, “Chuck”) to bring Jack in, but he insists he’s there to stop a plot against Heller, not harm him.
Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), meanwhile, has gone underground and is working for a hacktivist group, although she and Jack of course cross paths once again. “Live Another Day” also stars Benjamin Bratt as the head of the CIA; based on the brief glimpse in the trailer, the scenes between him and Sutherland could be a lot of fun to watch.
The 12-episode “24: Live Another Day” opens with a two-hour premiere on May 5. What do you think of the trailer?
