24 Season 6 Companion Book includes all 3 Season 5 Bonus DVD

I don't know if it has been posted before, but the "24 The Official Companion Season 6" book (out Feb 26) comes with a bonus DVD that is basically all three previously "exclusive bonus" from Best Buy, Target, Walmart DVD combine together.

This book is packaged with a bonus DVD of 88 mins of rare footage, with the following features:

1. 24: Changing All the Rules (25 mins): The creators and producers discuss
different aspects of the show including: conception, writing, choosing
storylines, developing characters, finding the actors, killing the characters and Jack. The interviews are interspersed with clips from seasons
1-5 of the show.
***Previous Walmart Exclusive Disc***

2. Keepin It Real: The Stunts and Special Effects of 24 (30 mins): This
opens in the same way as the first film and involves interviews with the
stunts and special effects crew and Emmy-award-winning producer/director Jon
Cassar interspersed with clips from seasons 1-5 of the show.
***Previous Best Buy Season 5 Exclusive Disc***

3. 24 The War on Terror: Can Truth Learn From Fiction? (33 mins): A film of
a panel discussion with an audience, panelists included the member of the LA
City Council in charge of terrorist threats, a former JAG and war crimes
prosecutor, a former government official, director of Security and Peace
Initiative and a RAND terrorism expert, along with members of the 24 cast
and crew, including the three main producers (Joel Surnow, Howard Gordon and Evan Katz) and the three main cast members from season 5 (Kiefer Sutherland, Jean Smart and Greg Itzin). The discussion is interspersed with clips from the show and audience questions.
***Previous Target Season 5 Exclusive Disc***

I guess it is cool that they're including all of the bonus footage. But will it include a letter of apology signed by the producers for how bad last season sucked? Did they ever do a companion book for any of the first few seasons? I would be interested in reading them if they did.

There's been 3 other companion books - one covering seasons 1 & 2, one for seasons 3 & 4 and one for season 5. I have the first one and would recommend it - however, don't go expecting tons of new information if I recall correctly. The bulk of the book gives a near minute-by-minute summary of each of the episodes.

Thanks for posting this OP. I noticed Amazon has this available for $11.53, the same price as the other companion books. Nice to know they didn't bump up the price for this one including the DVD.
