Question: Any spoilers on 24 in particular, does Chloe get a real storyline this time? I just saw the trailer for the new season, and I saw only a one-second glimpse of Chloe. This troubles me greatly.
Answer: Truth be told, there were several things about that trailer (conveniently playing now at TVGuide.com via this link) that troubled me, not the least of which was the lack of attention paid to my girl Chloe. For instance, did Tony really have to shave all his hair off to drive home the point that he's now evil? And is anyone interested in seeing Jack Bauer mired in some boring courtroom drama? Now that's torture. On the plus side, the action sequences look fraktacular, and um, er Kiefer Sutherland was rockin' that blue suit. Rather than bemoan the lack of attention paid to Chloe, Mary Lynn Rajskub the very definition of "team player" trumpeted the show's big Season 7 shake-up at the trailer's worldwide premiere in Times Square last Thursday. "So far, the scripts that I've read are completely different," she told us. "It takes place in Washington, D.C., theres a rogue CTU set up, an African country is the terrorist threat, and theres a conspiracy inside the government that we're trying to uncover." And what about Chloe? "I show up, time has passed and I have a 1-year-old and a wedding ring and I'm calling Morris while I'm busy. So far he's taking care of the baby, but he's around."
