Tonight on the Tube: Another Bad 24 Hours For Jack Bauer Begins

24: Seasons Four and Five SoundtrackCan you hear the clock ticking? I can and I can’t wait to see what is in store for Jack Bauer as Day 6 begins tonight with the first two hours of the show. Then we get another two tomorrow and then we have to sit back and wait for a whole week before we get another hour of 24. Twenty months will have passed since the Chinese took Jack captive. Wayne Palmer is now the President and terrorists have once again attacked with more planned. What will they do? Who will be playing both sides? How many people will Jack do away with? Will Chloe make a funny face? All these questions and more will begin to be answered tonight on 24. Will you be watching?
