'24' really is desperate to turn it around



Tbdcarlosbernard092407 SPOILER ALERT! Our fave series 24, dangerously close to falling completely off our radar, is planning to fill the cast with at least one zombie next season.

The Fox series plans on resurrecting Carlos Bernard, who plays erstwhile Jack Bauer sidekick Tony Almeida, in the two-night season premiere in January, the New York Post reports.

If you’ll remember, the show led us to believe he was killed in CTU’s infirmary after a car bomb killed his wife, Michelle Dessler (played Reiko Aylesworth) in season five.

Exec producer Howard Gordon thinks you should suspend disbelief, though, “since there was no silent clock at the conclusion of his last appearance — the 24 tribute to major characters’ demise — we always kept this as a possibility.”

You know what else is a possibility? All of us giving up on implausible scenarios.
