Have you been feeling like there aren’t enough improbable situations being solved in under an hour lately? Good, because Fox has the cure with the mothaflippin’ return of Jack Bauer in an all new day of 24. Day 7 for the poor beat down fellow begins six years after the end of the last season finale, with CTU dismantled and Bauer on trial. If you watched 24: Redemption last fall then you’re set on how Jack was brought back to face a pompous tribunal of “we know better than you” suits.

Jon Voight joins the cast as Jonas Hodges this season as what appears to be the puppet master behind the terrorist schemes. And of course there’s the return of Evil CTU Almeda. I’m not sure what’ll piss Jack off more: Tony is a bad guy, or he cried over the loss of Tony and now is being made a fool of for expressing his softer side. You probe Jack Bauer’s softer side and you’re likely to get your hand bitten off. Just a fair warning to Almeda and his crew.

24 returns with a four hour premiere event starting January 11th at 8pm ET, and this time it’s happening in the Nation’s Capitol.
