Did anyone else see the season 5 finale of 24. It was absolutley amazing. One of the most riveting hour of television I have ever seen. It had everything from the prevention of an attack the the impeachment of a president. It was one of the most exicting things I have ever seen.
Then the last minute was breathtaking, Jack, kidnapped by the Chinese and totured. Folks, this is how you make a show. Not like Prison Break, not like Lost but action packed, smart and not taking the viewers for a bunch of dummies.
24 is without a doubt the greatest action show ever on TV. Nothing looks fake or contrived. There is no other show that has such a willingness to kill off main and popular charachters like Tony Almeada and President Palmer. Thats why each episode is so thrilling, becuase besides Jack, noone is safe. And Keifer Suthrland, what more can I say, he puts on a cross between James Bond and John Mclane and is mezmerising to watch.
This season was just as good as Season 4, which is my favorite, but that is becuase I watched the whole season in about a week. I cant wait till next year. This is a show that is anything but cliche, always breaking the rules and is nothing short of brilliant. There never has been nor never will be anything like it.
