Editorial Reviews Hang on for the adrenaline rush of a lifetime as Jack Bauer (KeiferSutherland) unveils darker secrets, faces deadlier conspiracies, and is thrustinto more extreme action than ever before in Season 8 of _24_! As Day Eightunfolds, Bauer races against the clock to prevent the assassination of aMiddle Eastern leader on a vital peace-making mission. Meanwhile, a deadlyterrorist threat against New York City intensifies and builds towards anexplosive climax. Relive the electrifying final season of TV's mostgroundbreaking series ever, including a surprise ending you simply must see. Network television's most exciting series ends with a bang--a lot of bangs, infact, along with multiple bams, whams, and booms---as _24_ bows out with thissix-disc set of episodes from its eighth and final season. As the actionbegins in New York City, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), now a grandfather,has retired from his gig at the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) and plans to moveto California to be with his family. Yeah, right. When he learns of a plot toassassinate President Omar Hassan (Anil Kapoor) of the mythical IslamicRepublic of Kamistan--who's set to join the U.S. president, Allison Taylor(Cherry Jones), and the Russian leader at the United Nations, where they willsign a historic agreement that will end Kamistan's nuclear program and bringlasting peace to the Middle East--Jack leaps right back into the fray.Needless to say, the plot thickens faster than the pools of congealed blood heinevitably leaves in his deadly wake. Who's behind the assassination scheme?Is it Hassan's power-hungry brother, who has no desire to give up hiscountry's nukes, or is he in cahoots with bigger, more sinister forces? Arethere even CTU operatives involved in these dastardly machinations? Can Jacktrust a single soul other than himself? That he will get to the bottom of allof this (or the top, as a central conspiracy reaches to the very highestgovernment levels) is a given. That he will indulge in some questionabletactics to do so, including cynically using his allies and brutally torturinghis enemies (depicted in some intense and rather graphic scenes), is alsoexpected, especially as his relationship with a disgraced former FBI agent(Annie Wersching) ups the personal ante for him to the point of near-madness.Whether he will survive this particular day intact, however, is another matterentirely. The makers of _24_ have already shown that they're willing to go way over thetop to preserve the central conceit (an entire season takes place in a singleday, with each episode consuming one hour of that day), and the eighth seasonis no different. Plot twists that defy all credibility are not uncommon;there's no time to track down rumors or verify information, so the actiontends to proceed in almost cartoon-like fashion. Many characters makecardboard look sturdy, especially the bad guys (a bunch of arrogant fools,craven traitors, and murderous louses). But that's what has made the show soaddictive; it simply hurtles along, leaving no time to ask questions. Andwhile the adventures of Jack Bauer, the ultimate one-man army, appear to beover for good, this season makes us wish that a day were just a bit longerthen 24 hours. Bonus features include some extended episodes, "scenemakers"(detailed looks at certain scenes) for the majority of episodes, deletedscenes, and more. _--Sam Graham_
