Oh come on dude. Sure it was kind of expected that "that" would probably happen, but did think that it would be "that person"?

Seems like they just throw in a twist for the sake of it.. Almost like a last minute change of script..
And with this twist, what was the point of the story going where it did earlier..

^ Yeah, the 'mole in CTU because we have prepared for this'  :smhid

At least we had our 'geek with gun' moment, but I prefer a machine gun  :nervous

Remember how they talked about this season of 24 being the last one? Well now, they have no choice. It's been cancelled.

God, you know I really just detest Fox. Firefly, Dollhouse and now 24. I mean it's kind of understandable, there's only so many directions 24 can go in but it's easily one of their flagship shows. And where do you think the money will go to instead? Glee? More reality shows? Gee I can't get enough of either. :banghead:

*EDIT*

Woah :o Not surprising of the reveal but CTU turncoats are as common as Jack saying "Dammit!". The one thing I wish all characters realise is this. LISTEN TO JACK. I know of 3 guys now who haven't listened and gotten themselves killed. The NYPD officer approaching the hotel in the last episode, he didn't listen and walked in the hotel instead of keeping a perimeter. Got himself and his partners killed and allowed Tarin to escape. The dude who broke the formation could have single handedly fucked up the entire operation and pretty much indirectly got the young guy killed to.   :smhid

It's true though! If people just let Jack do his thing then the show would be called 12.

Dayuummmn. Bomb's a ticking! I'd be surprised if it went off though. Taran will have some crisis of conscious I bet and disarm it. But then...the terrorists might have some remote detonator and do it anyway! That's how most things seem to work in 24 anyway :lol:

Best things about this episode:

- When the secret service agent went over the plan with Jack and Renee, and Jack had to be called away to meet Hassan, he said "You two get started I'll be right back." I can't be the only one who imagined porn music playing at that moment XD
- Best moment of dialogue, potentially all season:
Quote
Jack: Son of a bitch hung up on me!
Renee: Well they're tired, they've been putting in long shifts
Jack: Yeh well I don't give a....
:lol: :lol: :lol:
- "He's just one man against an elite team with the element of surprise. He has no chance"
IDIOT!
Jack. Fucking. Bauer. Never underestimate the man.

Just watched eps 15+16 that I missed last week.


Without going into details...have to admit that the time-delayed broadcast at the end.........well-played by the terrorists.

^ Goddammit :(

Best bit about the current episode I saw:

Quote
Chloe: Hey can we get an audio feed? I think something might be happening down there
*audio feed switches on*
Jack: PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPONS NOW!!

:lol: :lol:

This season just went from good, to great, to awesome. Can't wait for each week now.

Jack. Fucking. Bauer. Never underestimate the man.

Pretty much the theme of this season.

Jack's going pretty far over now though - shooting unarmed people and breaking his word... be interesting to see what happens to him at the end of the season.

Finally was able to get caught up on the last 4 eps which I hadn't had a chance to watch.

Totally can't wait to see just how the ending goes down, seeing as how, more likely than not, there are going to be a LOT of people who go down.

SPOILERS






YOU'RE THE GOD DAMNED PRESIDENT. YOU CAN GIVE HIM A PRESIDENTIAL PARDON BEFORE YOU RESIGN.   :angry:


Other than that, pretty fun, though the ending was a bit of a let down - all it took was for the president to realize the power of love....  :thumbdown:

Good action, but a bunch of a plot holes. Plus, for all the talk of preventing a war, Russia just tried to nuke NYC via proxy. When that gets out there will probably be a war anyway.

Everyone lived, so I'm assuming this won't be the last we see of Jack.

Oh undoubtedly. They've been talking about doing a "24" movie for years.


I'm actually surprised that CTU hasn't found that parole officer guy that Dana killed. He's been dead for several hours so one would think that he'd be starting to stink up the place by now.
:yep:

What an amazing climax and series. Best one out of the lot for me (casting aside the Dana bullshit, but I can live with that).

These last two episodes whipped along - the storyline never faultered, the acting was outstanding (the scene where the President revealed the conspiracy to Hassan stands out in particular), Logan was absolutely brilliant and the ending was incredibly tense, emotional and carefully concluded all at once.

I think Season 8 was brilliant pretty much all the way through. Again, the Dana plotline was real cliched 24 guff, but the rest of it made up for it. The male President Hassan in particular. It was a very political season too, which I loved. And one in which absolutely everyone seemed to become filled with deep corruption and hatred. It was a dark, dark season really.

And nothing, nothing is better than the scene with Darth Bauer coming to take Logan. :rockon:

Other than that, pretty fun, though the ending was a bit of a let down - all it took was for the president to realize the power of love....  :thumbdown:

Well to be fair she's never been happy with any of Logan's calls. And the further she kept agreeing with Logan, the more it betrayed her principles and alienated her from everyone around her, such as Ethan. I thought it was a reasonable move on her part. And the knowledge of Russia's involvement was bound to get out eventually. Shit was always going to hit the fan with a move like that. But she was blinded purely because of the peace treaty in her grasp, has there not been, I'd have no doubt she would retaliate. And I dunno that the presidential pardon would have held up considering she confessed to her own crimes at that point. Otherwise she could have just pardoned herself as well. Besides, it's not just Americans he had to worry about, it's the Russians as well.

I'm actually surprised that CTU hasn't found that parole officer guy that Dana killed. He's been dead for several hours so one would think that he'd be starting to stink up the place by now.
:yep:

That's left for the movie surely! :P

Speaking of I found some hidden footage from the movie!

Jack's back in 2014
Quote
The clock will start ticking again on Fox's real-time thriller 24.

The network on Monday confirmed plans to restart the action thriller, which starred Kiefer Sutherland as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer and ended its eight-season run in 2010.

The new season, one of two "limited series" Fox plans for 2014, will be compressed into 12 weeks and premiere next May, says Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly. "We'll go in chronological order with the hours of the day, but we'll skip some hours," he says.
