Yeah! the wait is coming to a close!
On Sunday the 17th, we will get to watch 2 episodes (or hrs) of the show back to back! You can check out the trailer to get you encouraged to wait a bit more with patience for what seems to be the final season of the show.
http://www.fox.com/24/ gives you as much info as they can give about the show.

Peeps shouldn't start off watching series films with 24 cos it's makes you less keen to watch others and even when you do, they seem boring

For me I'm using this medium and opportunity to pledge to give download links to the episodes, but I'll need to know which one the people actually need most, I mean whether it is .avi format or mobile phones optimized formats. But in the mean time, I'll advise some of us to get a Rapidshare premium account 'cos that's the fastest means of getting those episodes downloaded from the internet. Till then

More on 24 Season 8
Guys, you remember Anil Kapoor, the guy who anchored the 'who wants to be a millionaire show' in Slumdog Millionaire? He'd be making his American tv debut in Season 8 of 24. He's gonna appear in 16 episodes.
'Slumdog's' Kapoor to star on '24'
Indian actor to make U.S. TV debut on show
Indian film star Anil Kapoor, who made waves here as the game show host in "Slumdog Millionaire," is next looking to make a similar splash on U.S. small screens.
Kapoor, who just signed with ICM, has sealed a deal to star as a regular next year on the eighth season of Fox's "24."
Thesp will play a leader from the Mideast who comes to the U.S. for a peacekeeping mission.
Role would rep the American TV debut for Kapoor, who has appeared in nearly 100 Hindi films over 25 years.
Kapoor played Prem Kumar, the host of India's version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," in the Academy Award-winning "Slumdog Millionaire."
Anil Kapoor extends '24' contract
Anil Kapoor has had his contract for American TV series 24 extended by six episodes.
The actor, who found fame in the US after starring in worldwide hit Slumdog Millionaire, was contracted for just ten episodes but the show's bosses have now increased the deal to 16.
"Initially I was under contract for just ten episodes. Then seeing the way my role developed, they decided to have me in 16 episodes," Kapoor told Real Bollywood.
"I must say I was as happy with the whole experience as I was with Slumdog Millionaire."

whoa! mouth watering information. Now I just cannot wait for it to kick start.
But I have this feeling Jacj Bauer is going to be killed cos there is no way the show will stop until he is stopped!! lol!
|Re: 24 Season 8 Begins 17th Jan by semid4lyfe(m): 11:32pm On Jan 11, 2010|
cabali:Yeah, there is a buzz that this may be the last season of the series film and the producers are thinking of making a feature film after the 8th season.
Read below and make up your mind
24: FOX Prez Says TV Series May End Soon; No Season Nine?
Is the clock finally running out for Jack Bauer? According to Kevin Reilly, Fox Entertainment President, this season may be the last for Kiefer Sutherland’s oft-tortured hero.
At the recent TV Critic’s summer press tour, Reilly told iFmagazine that the upcoming season is the last one under the show’s current contract. And while Sutherland remains committed to the show, Reilly is unsure of its future.
“It’s our last contractual season of 24,” Reilly said. “There are a lot of moving parts, so we’re not sure what will happen after that.”
He continued, “We haven’t made any decision whether it’s back or not [after this upcoming season]. The producers are passionate, Kiefer is passionate and we don’t have any of them looking to jump ship. It's a show we are really proud of.”
Reilly concluded that, “It’s going to come down to a businessdecision. It’s not an inexpensive show on the network books and we also want to finish strong. This is not a show we want to prop up. It will be a whole creative and business discussion and something weâ€™ll have to deal with over the next few months.”
Admittedly the show’s numbers have slipped a bit in the last couple seasons — from a high of 13.78 million in season five to 12.62 million in season seven — but did place 20th in overall viewers this year. In the end, it may be just too expensive for the network, especially considering that the contracts are up for renewal. Though the commercials for 24 are, next to American Idol, the most expensive in primetime, the network’s ad sales are also down about 16% from last year.
Reilly maintained that the show might still continue after next year but his initial comments align with the plans of 24 Executive Producer Howard Gordon. He wants to take Jack Bauer and company to theaters and, earlier this year, Gordon said, “My hope is to go [shoot the feature film] after the eighth season. That’s sort of what we’re aiming for. I think that a big-screen 24 will be a fitting send off for Jack.”
'24' exclusive: Kiefer Sutherland calling it a day?
Good news for terrorists everywhere: With just one more year left on Kiefer Sutherland’s 24 contract, there’s a very real possibility that Jack Bauer’s career as the world’s foremost savior may end next season. And while Sutherland says he’s undecided as to whether day 8 will be his last, he’s watching the clock in a way he never has before.
“I don’t think about [the end of 24] a lot, but I did this year for the first time,” he confesses. “It was one of those weird moments where the stage was unusually quiet; it was like a ghost town. I was looking around [thinking] about all the work that went into building this thing and it hit me: This will end one day, and I’m going to be sad about it. “Whether season 8 is the end or not, I don’t know,” he continues. “I love making the show, so I’m leaving my options open. And in all fairness, I think the audience will dictate that more than anybody.”
In the meantime, perhaps even more critical than determining when Jack will pack it in is how. “There are two obvious choices: Jack dies, or Jack finally has a happy ending,” suggests executive producer Evan Katz. “It’s actually an interesting discussion as to which would be more faithful to the show and more rewarding for the audience. Because if we give him a happy ending, part of the audience would be mad at us for doing what is easy.
And if we kill him, they would be mad at us for a different reason altogether.”
There are also the bean counters at 20th Century Fox to consider; they’ll need Jack alive if there’s to be a 24 movie franchise (as many expect there will be). “Kiefer and I have always said, ‘Jack Bauer’s gotta die,’” says fellow EP and frequent director Jon Cassar. “But then the idea of a 24 movie came up and we went, ‘Oh, okay, maybe not.’ “I always joke that Jack dies and they discover he’s been the terminator the whole time,” Cassar adds with a laugh. “That’s why he never died [and] why he can’t stay in relationships. And then they take another Jack Bauer off the rack and send him out into the world. It makes a lot of sense, but I don’t think it’ll happen.”

If they are going to do a movie, I think they should get a fast paced director and visual effects team to give it a final blow-away.
|Re: 24 Season 8 Begins 17th Jan by Lenny9000(m): 1:56am On Jan 13, 2010|
Thank you so much for posting this! I am the biggest 24 fan in the world! Though I don’t watch it like others cos i cant wait till the next week to see the next episode. So I always wait till its out on DVD (take a lot of discipline to do that) then I watch 4episodes at once, I have all 7seasons on DVD and re-watch them often lol! Am so excited about season 8 and the better not kill him o! Cos I will really be depressed if that happens, the end of season7 was hard for me as it is, so they better leave him alive
|Re: 24 Season 8 Begins 17th Jan by cabali(m): 1:17pm On Jan 13, 2010|

cabali:True! You no lie. I skipped my lectures in school to watch Season 5 on DVD in a day Immediately it finished and Jack was kidnapped by the Chinese, I ran out of my house, jumped on a Bike and went to the nearest video store to buy the Season 6 and I watched that through the night without sleeping and when season 7 was running, I downloaded and watched the episodes weekly & followed and contributed on the season 7 thread on Nairaland regularly. Now, that's what I call been a great fan of 24 It's even evident from my post here na
