    Love 24, but without Jack I am not so sure. He was the show. The first 6 seasons of the show were awesome, and the next few were pretty good also.

    I actually thought Season 6 was pretty awful. Season 7 was very good though. Season 8 started off worse than Season 6 for the first half but had a huge resurgence for the final episodes.

    Live Another Day I liked a lot while it was airing, but like a lot less now that time has passed. The finale is what ruins it for me.

    Season 5 is my favorite season.

    Season 5 was epic and was also my favorite.

    Actually I'm kindof looking forward to it

    The Jack story was great and I'm a huge fan, but some fresh blood and back stories would be great

    The format of the show, most don't realize, is a throwback in many ways to the serial radio shows of the 1940s where each one ended on a cliff hanger

    It's a proven hook and that's one of the best things about the format and series

    I always make watching 24 part of my elliptical workout too - you don't notice 44 minutes (60 minutes minus commercials) go by and you're left looking forward to the next workout and the next show!

    Yeah, I'll definitely check it out but I can't say I'm excited or that I'm expecting much. It's been 10 years since I've viewed 24 as the best show on television, but after Season 6 that show never came back. There's been some great, memorable moments from the last three seasons and Live Another Day, but the show's best years are definitely behind it.

    Maybe a new cast and new story will change that, but I don't like the way LAD ended and don't like that we are moving on from Jack and company without the story being resolved. If anyone bought the Live Another Day Blu-ray and watched the short film "24: Solitary," which is set after LAD and ends in a pretty big cliffhanger, it's made even more upsetting that, as it appears now, these storylines will not be revisited.

    After the miniseries ended and Kiefer said he was done, I came to peace with the fact that we'll never get the ending we deserve (which is honestly at this point a happy ending with Jack reuniting with his family or going down in a blaze of glory) and that it is time to let 24 go.

    I was a huge fan in the show's glory days, but I feel that the more they keep doing this the more they destroy the show's legacy. People are going to start remembering this once great show for how long they dragged it out and never gave it a real ending, and forget how influential, innovative, and just plain ****ing awesome the show actually was. It almost would have been better if they concluded it with Season 5, really going out on top.

    That being said I loved the final half of Season 8, and now knowing how LAD ends I kinda wish it just stayed that way.

    Maybe I'll be proven wrong, but I'm not expecting much from Legacy. Even if it is good, still hard to consider it "24"

    Also, here's some casting news for the series:

    ’24: Legacy’ Casts ‘Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins As Male Lead

    Miranda Otto to Star in '24: Legacy' for Fox

    ’24: Legacy’ Casts Anna Diop In Co-Starring Role

    'The Flash' actor cast in Fox's '24' revival

    Jimmy Smits Joins ‘24: Legacy’ Fox Pilot In Key Role

    ’24: Legacy’: Dan Bucatinsky, Coral Pena & Charlie Hofheimer Join Fox Pilot

    ‘24: Legacy’: Ashley Thomas Set As Lead In Fox Reboot

    The most promising thing about this for me is Stephen Hopkins' involvement. He was my personal favorite director on the show, really wish he stayed on for more than just the first season. But you could always tell his episodes apart, that no one else was ever able to match after he left.

    No question - it's looking like it's going to be good

    I'm also intrigued by Keifer's new show - the trailer isn't anywhere near as slick but there's still the terrorist angle and there's the Truman-esque story of a guy rising to the occasion
