Did I make a comment in this thread remarking as to why this series still exists? If not, consider this post that comment.
 
I don't get it, how long can you milk a series before it becomes a stale parody of itself?

Everyone's got their own opinion.

I don't think the series has been "milked", nor do I think that it's a "stale parody of itself". The series is amazing and in most cases, it's unpredictable. Sure, you know that Jack's going to go against the book and what not, but in general, the series is still pretty exciting (or was up until season eight. I can't comment on the new one for obvious reasons!). Okay, Redemption was a let down, but I think that's because we're used to the real time aspect of the show. The acting was still phenomenal, though.

Sure, some seasons aren't as good as others, just as with any other TV show. That doesn't mean that the show has dropped in standards.

I heard that these 12 eps were to replace the movies, they were gonna do a trilogy but went for this. But yeah a movie afterwards would be cool. It will take a few years due to the same reasons as before, scheduling and creative reasons, by then Kiefer may be too old.
 
If jack Bauer is not dead at the end of this, then a movie will happen.
 
If he were to die I'd like to see a 24 movie regardless but with different people, however this idea could fail badly like scrubs series 9. I always wanted to see a movie about operation nightfall, 2 years before season 1 is set but they would need to overhaul the cast entirely and Dennis Hopper (who played Victor Drazen) being dad further complicates things on that angle.

 
unless they did the movie when Jack Bauer was introduced to CTU maybe?

I searched around and it seems this is the main topic for 24. Surprised no one is discussing this! Such a great show...

 

Anyway, to anyone (IF ANYONE) that's up to speed with the last episode (Ep 7 / 5-6pm), I thought this bit was interesting:

One of the best TV Series I must say. I'm yet to watch the Day 9 episodes.

Jack and Chloe break my heart.

 

Fantastic Finale, and brilliant end to a consistently entertaining season. Easily one of the best in 24's history.

that was an EPIC finale. It has to come back, so many questions are left unanswered.

I know I haven't been active throughout this season. I've been a week behind since the second episode. Finally got around to watching the finale. I guess they're banking on another season.

I'm glad Audrey died. I never liked her, and it gave Jack an excuse to go apesh*t on Cheng. I've always resented every woman Jack gets involved with, because I enjoyed the first season and Teri. Even after all those years, I wish her death would be a trauma he would never forget. Yet they never mention her. At least they didn't bring Kim in to be the damsel, in the last minute, like every season.

As longs as we never get an "Adventures of Kim" story like we did in Season 2, I'll be happy in terms of Kim being brought in.

I'll let that storyline slide, because of this.  Even if she was almost raped soon after that.

You might say Jack had...wait for it...amnesia.

 

Thank you I'll be here all week, tip your waitresses.
