Jack's clock stops..........

After mucho mucho rumour 24 has been canned and will end with season 8.

I have to say, that although I used to love 24 (particularly the first three seasons and to an extent the fourth) I really drifted away after watching Day 5 because it was starting to get just too stupid - obviously it was pretty far-fetched from Day 1 anyway, but eventually it just went through the same motions too many times.

I think it's time it ended now while it has mostly fond memories attached to it - and there's always the possibility of a film version.

I'm not really all that sad about this. I only watched one full season of it (Day 6, I think it was). From what I've seen of the earlier seasons, they seemed a lot more entertaining.

This is my third favorite television series. I have yet to see an episode of Season 8....will get it on DVD.

I loved this show. Yeah, it's got a few far-fetched moments, but it's still riveting. Good bye, 24. You had a great run.

My first two fave series are M*A*S*H* and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. :)

Love that show and all of it's over the top craziness

I shall also miss all the wonderous torture scenes that make liberals cringe. ;)

(just kidding) :D

Nah, even though I'm one of those pesky Liberals myself they didn't make me cringe - they just made me go 'Oh, that old chestnut again? Can't Jack come up with anything new?'

:001_tongue:


But does anyone else seem suprised at just how insecure CTU proved to be over the years? I mean, I've lost count of the amount of times a mole/double agent got into the place, or it got bombed or attacked. The place couldn't even keep itself safe! :lol:

Heck, I'm a conservative and I could barely garner up the interest to even watch the show...

Seems like it was time for it to end. It had a great run but it started slacking near the end.

Saquist 03-29-2010 07:15 AM

I liked it too but this was by far the worse season.
