    Rather than see 24 disappear completely, my idea is to launch a new show simply called "CTU". The new show would differ from "24" in a lot of ways. First off, I would ditch the 24 hour realtime format. It was great for establishing a unique identity, but I think it hurt the show in some instances where the main plot was finished at around 16-18 hours and we got unnecessary twists fill the remaining hours. This would allow the show to take a more long term approach to the characters and to delve into their personal lives more. You could have a mix of serial episodes with related plots and self contained episodes.



    Basically, I'm saying make 24 a lot like the british show "MI-5" minus the left wing political slant.

    Not liking this idea, sounds too much like MI-5 and would be perceieved as a ripoff.

    Yes then we can get several spinoffs in different locations Like CTU: Miami and CTU: NY and I will never watch it because it will be boring as hell.

    For some strange reason, CTU:NY sounds like a watchable show.....but yeah it would get boring real fast.

    Suggesting something like NCIS: LA? Other than a whole bottle of vodka, nothing makes me vomit faster.

    If there was a CTU spin-off, it would be like "threat matrix" meets "NCIS: LA". What is "threat matrix" I hear you ask? look it up - rubbish show, got half a season out i think.

    I don't like the idea and I have a question: Why the CSIs are all so popular and so successful shows in the USA??? I don't understand! What's the reason/s?

    On second thoughts, if the spin-off was "CTU" and featured Chloe as boss, it would be awesome! I have to say seeing Chloe run around being boss was awesome.

    The only way a spin-off would ever work was if it was pretty much "The Chloe O'Brien Show".

    No. There is no way 24 will be a lead in for a new show. It would get cancelled mid-season.

    And I agree with someone up above talking about the CSI shows. It's just dumb to have all these CSI: Las Vegas, Miami, and New York. They should have just stuck with the original one.

    If they started a CTU: New York, then they'd want to do one in Miami, then Chicago, then before we know it they'll go to Providence Rhode Island for all I know. It just wouldn't work, and it's never going to happen. I'm for Jack Bauer, and Jack Bauer only.
