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:

 

 

In the scene where Jack interrogates Simone in the hospital (where he sort of tortures her a bit with her cut finger), I thought it was a very interesting moment where Jack notices his colleague (the blonde CIA chick) watching him. He stops interrogating Simone, walks outside, and tells the CIA woman: "I'm sorry". And just says "She wouldn't have said anything, anyway". And walks away.

 

The old Jack never gave up. He would go to crazy lengths when it came to interrogations that involved him torturing people. All for a greater cause or whatever... fueled various debates around the time of the original 24.

 

But I guess the writer of the show wanted to show how Jack changed after all these years? Maybe after all his experience, he knew that - no matter what he did - Simone wouldn't talk either way. And having experienced torture on both ends, he realized that going to certain lengths just wasn't worth it...

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.

 

 

One thing i noticed is Jacks grin at the end so............its not the end?????

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.

I never got big into 24 or any other similar show. I won't be missing much.

Let's bump this, shall we?

 

So who watched? I know there's a very slim chance it happens, but I'm begging whatever higher beings are out there, that Jack Bauer is somehow the villain of Legacy. That at the end, he's gone rogue, the line between hero and murderer is blurred and we see Jack put down leaving us wondering what eight and a half seasons was all about.

I just finished watching the first episode. I thought it was fantastic. Yeah, it reuses a lot of the same things the original did, but I kind of expected it. I don't appreciate the criticism it's getting though. I've read complaints that it's painting Muslims as terrorists, and that it was in bad taste. I understand people are sensitive due to the travel ban, and a very tense election, but really? It's a TV show. Get over it. Would it be less offensive if the terrorists were Canadian hockey players?

 

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the rest of the season. I would love to see some old characters make appearances. That would be pretty sweet.

I watched first two episodes ad so far so good. It continues like before,but I liked earlier seasons,so I think that this one will be good too. Still,I miss Jack Bauer.
