Oh, 24 ... the show that maniacally glued many people to their television sets through real-time terror. Jack's done a lot since protecting Senator David Palmer in the first season. Aside from saving the world from evil threats over and over, he was supposed to jump into a big-screen flick nestled between the sixth and seventh seasons. That never surfaced, so instead, DVD Active reports that fans are getting a straight-to-DVD pseudo-feature called 24: Exile.

Looking like more of a feature-length episode prequel, Exile will be released on the 25th of November. Acting as a bridge between the seasons, the prequel follows Bauer as he works as a missionary in Africa. The US government is after him, and he's also been tapped to stop a warlord from drafting innocent children. "But first, Bauer must confront his own torturous past and face an impossible decision that will change his life forever." That man has a rough life. Will it ever end?

Maybe when it does, we'll get the feature film, but for now, there is just this 2-hour DVD prequel. Oh, and for you uber impatient fans out there -- one of the many special features of the disc will be the first 16 minutes of the new season, set to air in 2009.
