Tv Season Info

Set 18 months after the events of the prior season, Day 8 - which begins at four in the afternoon - opens with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) drawn back into the homeland-security business when an assassination plot is launched against Middle Eastern leader Omar Hassan (Anil Kapoor), who's in the U.S. to negotiate an arms pact with President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones). Not long after daybreak, however, the super-agent shifts focus and sets out to avenge a personal tragedy.

Critic Reviews for 24: Day 8

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (16)

This 24 seems more realistic than usual, and it offers many exciting moments.

January 17, 2010 | Full Review…

Four immensely enjoyable hours.

Top Critic

The new season gives the series a superficial makeover, moving the locale to New York, resurrecting CTU with a shiny new office - and new cast members.

January 17, 2010 | Full Review…

Fox's 24 is a little creaky getting out of bed to start its eighth season. But once it wakes up, it reminds us that no current TV show is better at action-adventure.

January 17, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Any long-time fan of the drama has to smile and subtly pump his/her fist at the countdown, the multiple on-screen boxes and all the familiar reminders that one of the best produced shows is back on TV.

January 17, 2010 | Full Review…

As always, however, it's Kiefer who commands the attention, particularly in a climactic character arc that sees him transform into a perma-torturing one-man army.

24 comes to its thrilling conclusion in its eighth and final season. Once again the show shifts locations (rather poetically) to New York City where one of Jack Bauer's former contacts brings him vital information about an assassination plot to kill the president of a Middle Eastern country at the UN peace summit, which forces Jack to sign on for one last mission with CTU; but things get personal for him when Renee Walker is sent undercover with Russian weapons dealers. Freddie Prinze Jr., Katee Sackhoff, David Anders, and Michael Madsen rotate into the cast and give fairly good performances. However, it takes a while for the season to get some traction (as a lot the subplots are pretty cliché and formulaic), but around mid-season there's a shift and the show starts to go all-out; as if nothing is off-limits and no one is safe. Some things are taken a little too far, but overall the story is incredibly exciting and action-packed. Season 8 of 24 isn't the most cohesive of the series, but it ends up being one of the most daring and intense.
