I thought this finale was just OK. I have watched this show for years, and I feel that the only "right" ending would be Jack dying and receiving the silent clock as the clock ticks down for the last time. That ending would be very sad, but it seems only right. It would have gone down as one of the best series/finales in TV history. Chloe was unbelievable tonight, Logan is always great. The episode's biggest redeeming factor is that Jack did what was best for his country in the end, which has always been his primary goal. I just wish Jack would have killed Logan/Pillar/Subarov on his own.
That all being said, I was a little disappointed that this season ended like a few seasons before have ended. I felt as if it was just another season finale rather than a series finale other than the conversation with Chloe at the end which was very powerful.
I am a little disappointed that the writers decided to sell out and make a movie. The premise of 24, what makes it unique, is the real-time, how each episode is an hour and each season is a day. With a movie, it will lose that special quality which plays such an integral part in the show. I am worried that the movie will just be Kiefer Sutherland running around killing people rather than having a 24 feel with real-time, the clock, deep plot/event development, etc.
That being said, it was a great run, it has been one of my favorite shows for years. Unfortunately losing Lost and 24 in a span of two days really hurts
Anyone have any show recommendations?
