JACK IS BACK! And none too soon, it seems, because my plea that people stop blowing up London has gone callously unheeded by evil doers. That’s cool. You picked the wrong guy to mess with. Even Grandpa Jack coming out of retirement is willing to do literally whatever it takes up to and including flaying you with a desert spoon to extract the information he needs. 24: Live Another Day will return to FOX on May 5, 2014. The “mini-series” will be 12 episodes, so I don’t know if we’re doing 2 hours an episode or if we’re only doing 12 hours….and really only we would care, so we’ll just wait and find out.
