A counterterrorism agent forced to go rogue, Jack Bauer had been lying low since 2010 .For eight seasons of this Fox thriller, the indomitable Bauer repeatedly saved the country from innumerable disasters (or tried to) at grave cost to himself. Returning as the intrepid, long-suffering Bauer is Kiefer Sutherland, whose far more upbeat post-"24" drama, "Touch," was axed a year ago after just two seasons.Also back, remarkably, is Kim Raver, who, as Bauer's former heartthrob Audrey, was last seen in the conclusion of Season 6 in a coma from which she was not expected to emerge. But there is no happy reunion in store for Jack. Still the driven do-gooder, Jack is hellbent on foiling this plan.Such is the plight of Jack Bauer.Recall that during the first season's "day," a major mission for Bauer was to prevent the assassination of a presidential candidate.Yes, Bauer barks his signature "DAMN-it!"Rather than rousing us, "24" these days has the opposite effect: It lulls us with Bauer's beleaguered, uncomplaining efforts to lend a helping hand.
