They're pulling out all the stops now. I'm fairly certain of what is going to happen in the finale. Nobody spoiled it for me, just a prediction that I'd be willing to bet on. I'm so sure that it is going to happen that I won't post it here because I don't want someone to get pissed at me for posting a spoiler. If anyone is curious, shoot me a PM. ;-D


Still doesn't beat season 1 for me. This season started off slow but the last couple of episodes (especially yesterday's) have been tremendous. ;-D

I agree, nothing will top Season 1 for me from start to finish. Season 5 was my close second but this season might be giving it a run. It's like I can't wait for next week and I can. I'm so excited to see the ending but it's going to suck knowing there won't be any more Bauer (aside from the presumed movie, but that won't be the same.)

I haven't followed 24 aside from a few episodes early on but I'll be curious to see how it all ends.

It's a trip to think that everything happened in 8 days. :-B

:~(
I love Chloe O'Brien
This show was like nothing else. Jack is one of the best characters on TV.
Its a shame to hear that clock for one last time.

Its been a good run ;-D

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?

Some thoughts:

Part of me feels unsatisfied that the whole saga of Jack didn't really resolve itself on television. In that sense I almost wish he died, because at least we would have gotten closure. But part of me is happy that this ending sets up a film wonderfully, so at least we haven't seen the last of 24. Hopefully they do the story and characters justice on the big screen.

I thought that if Taylor came back to the light at the last minute I'd be angry, but I think they pulled it off well. Her seeing that video Jack made for Kim (I'm assuming) is what broke through to her, his lines about true peace, etc. I thought that was great.

At first I was irritated that Logan didn't die. I feel like they should have effectively ended that era and that character, and him committing suicide after this final attempt at glory failed would have been perfect. But then I thought about it and I almost feel like him failing to kill himself is more fitting for his character. He couldn't even succeed at taking his own life, and now he's doomed to live with brain damage or paralysis, etc.

All in all I'm happy with the finale. I think they did the series justice and allowed for a nice segue into feature films. I'm really going to miss this show. It's the first show that I really got addicted to and fell in love with in my life. What a great series. ;-D
