I am sooo gonna miss reading this thread after watching!!! You guys slay me!
I second that! We only started watching midway through the amazing season 5, then went back and watched every season from 1 through 5 again while waiting for season 6.
It has been sheer pleasure to read this thread after watching the show (sometimes the next day). I laughed, I cried, I had a blast. Thanks to all!
Yes. Itzin deserves an Emmy for his flawlessly complicated, creepy, slimy, whiny, wheedly, cowardly character of President Logan.
It DID make me cry. There is no truer love than that between Chloe and Jack. And Jack appreciating how she was the wind beneath his wings the whole time... Sniff...
I will miss this show.
thank you for the 24 pings...
“What a great ending.”
Is it really the end? What if come next January Fox announces the beginning of season 9 a few days before the show.
Wouldn’t that create a furor? And wouldn’t that be how Jack would do it?
Taking Bob Hope's words from "Thanks For The Memory":
Thanks for the memory...
Oh, well, it was swell while it lasted
We did have fun and no harm done.
I thought the finale was tepid, and certainly nothing like the finale of "the Shield," which ranks as the greatest series end ever, in my book. Contrast Vic Mackey, left in hell where he cannot use his power, his badge, or his gun to intimidate others (or right wrongs), and the sirens blasting outside while he, gun in hand, is deciding whether to a) break Ronny out of jail or b) join the cops or c) shoot himself vs. Jack left, well, free to be Jack---alone and on the run . . . . It was disappointing to say the least. I think season three or four---can't remember which at this point---was when 24 peaked.
Hope he doesn’t get another DUI
Now to donate Jack's man bag to the Smithsonian, where it can be displayed along side Fonzie's leather jacket and Indiana Jones' fedora.
I didn't follow The Shield. I suppose if I watched its finale, out of context, I wouldn't like it very much either.
This wasn't be the best season of 24. For a while it looked like the worst. But the last 10 episodes or so were outstanding.
Looking forward to the movie.... but.....
So the drama of the PEACE DEAL continues??? See you kids tonight...Go Team Lee!!!
Audrey took her bullet in a white sweater. With your screen name, you should know that
Did I miss the part where they found and saved Parole Officer Bill Dauterive out of the wall Manhands shoved him in?
I loved the end of The Shield!
I was blown away by the scene where Claudia and Dutch walk into the FBI building and watch Vic testify that he killed a fellow cop, robbed the Money Train and gave drugs to dealers he was protecting...crimes far, far worse than the crimes they had envisaged of him.
Excellent, excellent series, among the best ever.
The best acting, too...Acevada, Dutch, Vic, Ronnie, all of them Emmy worthy.
I like Breaking Bad a lot, too...
The last scene was Vic reporting to a desk.
It was, by far, the worst thing you could do to him. Existential hell.
