And he sails off into the Sunset

Nevermind the Chinese kidnappers, anyone else wonder how Jack Bauer has escaped high blood pressure or eye twitches? My husband and I have become recent followers of 24, and every episode has at least four major plot twists, new diabolical conspiracies hatched, kidnappings, assassinations, and of course, saving Los Angeles from terrorist attacks--all occuring in real time in one hour--every hour, 24/7.

Hugh Hewitt was reading off one-liners on the season finale; my favorite was: "A happy ending! Jack sails off into the sunset on a cruise ship."

He could use a vacation.

I thought it was a cunning way to set up the next season. Of course Chloe isn't going to be much help on a the other end of a cell phone while Jack is busy making noodles in the prison factory in Podung, China.

I actually thought this season was pretty good, but nothing will beat the first season for sheer mind-bending twists. Thing is, the show kind of Jumped The Shark, after that. Not completely, but it's just never been quite the same. I did really like President Logan's character this Day. I can't be the only one who thought he bore an uncanny resemblence to Tricky Dick. heh

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing how Jack gets out of this scrape.

Muzzy!! :)

I loved season one. But what I love even more is that Kim Bauer got voted off the island. How does a girl get kidnapped by a different terrorist cell every hour?! How?

When KROQ votes a fictional teenager "the dumbest teen in American," she's gotta go.

And yes, how Jack will get his bloodied and bruised body off a ship bound for Shanghai is going to make a worth while show. :)

All Logan needs to say next season is, "I am not a crook!" and give the peace sign. Definitely a Nixon redux.
