“24″ is back!

Get ready for one of the best shows on television to return, and with it one of our most entertaining TV blogs. David Medsker writes the 24 Blog, and he recently posted a preview of the upcoming season and a refresher from last season on Premium Hollywood. There are some spoiler alerts, so don’t click through if you don’t want to learn anything about the upcoming season.
