Fox executives said Monday that its drama “24″ is returning next May for a limited run that will stretch into the summer. The adventure series with Kiefer Sutherland starring as Jack Bauer ended its original run in 2010.
While I admit that the last few seasons weren’t very good (they still brought us moments like this), I’m excited to see Jack Bauer on my television again. 12 episodes is perfect because one of the biggest problems with 24 was all the filler that was required to make this show last for 24 hours. With half that number, we can get to the heart of the matter quickly (at least that’s the hope).
I think I’ll have to end my retirement from recapping 24 episodes.
Fire up the Jack Bauer Kill Count!
I’ve been looking forward to this movie based on the Oscar Grant shooting since I heard it was in production. I hope this continues the rise of Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Friday Night Lights, Chronicle)
Holeee shit! 10-year old Sean is foaming at the mouth.

As I started to put this post together, I realized this might be the last summer where my top priority will be catching the best and biggest spectacles Hollywood has to offer. This will be the last time going to the movies won’t involve babysitters or telling my child “Shh”. I swore to myself a long time ago that I would never be that person who brings their child into the movie theater until they understand the concept of sitting quietly for two hours. If that means missing The Avengers 2 in 2015, so be it. Sigh.
I’m getting ahead of myself. We’re not there yet.
5. Pacific Rim (July 12)
It was between this and The Wolverine for the number five spot but I picked Pacific Rim. The Wolverine, while promising, still has the potential to suck. I’ve already been burned once by a Wolverine movie. Besides I’ve enjoyed every Guillermo del Toro I’ve ever seen and let’s be honest. This is a film about gigantic man-controlled robots facing giant monsters in battle.. That may sound silly or stupid to you but to 13 year old Sean, it sounds like a dream come true.
I was skeptical but I think Zack Snyder may have pulled it off.
I think this is the best trailer yet.
