Just got back from Times Square, nifty new 24 baseball cap (and skittish free radio) in tow.... Lessee, we have a bedraggled and Unabombery-bearded Jack Bauer; President Wayne Palmer looking contemplative in the Oval Office; Peter MacNicol in the role of the White House toadie who will be wrong every step of the way; Mary Lynn Rajskub's Chloe nicely working a longer 'do. Then lotsa, lotsa explosions, and whammo, Jack's all clean-cut. (How many minutes do you think they will set aside for his apparent trip to the barber?)

Good times ahead, and "just" 81 days away! The Season 6 preview can be found here, at 24trailer.com.
