'24:' Season Six Discussion...
The Obvious Purpose Of This Thread...
The (what should be) obvious purpose of this thread is to discuss the sixth season of the hit television show '24.' As the sixth season hasn't
aired yet, all we can do is speculate and enjoy words from fans of this great show. For new fans, I will post a brief synopsis of each of the previous
The Past Seasons...
In Day 1, Jack Bauer's wife and daughter are kidnapped by a terrorist group plotting to kill presidential candidate David Palmer. A mole inside
L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU), Jamey Farrell, is exposed, but doesn't provide any information that could help the investigation. When it is
revealed that the man behind his family's kidnapping is someone from his past, Jack eventually realizes everything that has happened has been to do
with both him and senator David Palmer personally, while information is uncovered that there may be another mole inside CTU, and makes the situation
In Day 2, approximately 18 months after Season 1, Jack is dealing with the death of his wife Teri and the estrangement of his daughter Kim, who
believes Jack's dangerous line of work caused her mother's death. Jack is no longer working for CTU, but when the White House receives intelligence
that a nuclear bomb will be detonated in Los Angeles over the course of the day, President David Palmer counts on Jack as the only man he can trust to
find the terrorist cell in possession of the bomb and to stop its detonation. More lives will be at stake as another conspiracy arouses regarding a
tape conversation about an attack to America, which was uncovered after the bomb crisis.
In Day 3, three years after narrowly averting a war with three middle eastern countries, Jack returns from a one-year deep undercover operation,
infiltrating the Salazar drug family. At the same time, a van drops off a dead body infected with a bio-weapon at the National Health Services. CTU
then receives a phone call threatening to release the virus if Ramon Salazar is not released from prison in 6 hours. Jack's new partner is Chase
Edmunds, who is also romantically involved with his daughter Kim, who is now also working at CTU. Jack is also fighting a heroin addiction he picked
up in his undercover assignment.
It's been 18 months since Jack Bauer averted a deadly crisis in Los Angeles. However, he was fired from CTU, and now has got a new lease on life,
as a senior advisor to Secretary of Defense James Heller. He also has found a new love in his life in the form of his boss's daughter, Audrey Raines.
But an impeding hostage crisis concerning his new boss develops, that leaves Jack's new life shattered. Jack must reclaim his past life, as a CTU
agent, in order to save the life he has made for himself. As the day unfolds several contingencies are revealed, all planned by Turkish terrorist
Habib Marwan. Each of Marwan's attacks proves even more devastating than its predecessor and CTU must race to find him before he unleashes a terror
America has never had to deal with before.
18 months after Day 4, Jack is living under a new alias, as Frank Flynn, and working on various oil rigs and refineries throughout America. He is
currently living with Diane and Derek Huxley, a family near the Mojave Desert, South Eastern California. Meanwhile, an unknown figure orders the
assassination of the four people who know Jack is alive--Tony Almeida, Michelle Dessler, Chloe O'Brian and Former President David Palmer--to frame
him. He returns to LA to clear his name when a hostage situation erupts. But it is only a diversion by a collaboration of conspirators and Russian
separatists to obtain 20 canisters of Sentox VX nerve gas. The gas was originally to be used to attack Moscow, but the separatists begin to release it
in LA in retaliation after they discover that a US agent has infiltrated their organization. Jack attempts to search for the remaining canisters and
expose treachery deep within the White House.

Rules On "Spoilers"...
I know (from personal experience) that "spoilers
" (information that hasn't been aired, but will in the future) ruin the experience of
watching the actual show
. This is why I have created this little section in this post. If you desire to post a spoiler, please warn the reader
that you are about to do so
. This way, we can all enjoy '24' in our own way. This rule goes into affect two weeks before the first episode of
'24' season six airs
. For now, spoilers may not do that much harm (and they make great discussion) and this is why the rule doesn't apply until
