If one thing's certain by now, it's the fact that people sometimes have starkly different opinions on seasons of '24'...and that's fine. I'm not here to change anyone else's mind overall, I'm merely going to point out -- as I did in my Season Two review -- the specifics (that helps) of what's led to my conclusion. I'll even be fair and make sure that the categories I'm about to discuss cover both positives and negatives.

To be blunt: What we have here is pure '24' -- a consequence-ridden one-day saga of well-developed characters, cleverly-written twists, political conflict, ethical dilemma, and fantastic action.

...But before going further into that, I want to respond to some things I'm hearing by tossing out three points of my own -- each of which address what this season isn't.

-This is not the weakest season (that distinction goes to Season Three, which had a convoluted, underwhelming first half and only became memorable during the second).

-This is by no means the first season to recycle concepts that have appeared before on '24'. A woman under Jack's protection having essential info; someone from the White House deciding to make a tragic human sacrifice; CTU being attacked; Jack going undercover as a bad guy; villains laying in wait to save their leader; the families of terrorists being threatened... Some of these are features that appear again here; all of these are features that have been reused well before Season Six.

-This is not the first season to be split into two story lines and have a latter problem borne of a former; it's simply the first to make the second objective significantly shorter (about six episodes long).

In the time since Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) was kidnapped, the United States has become a dangerous place. Suicide bombers hit the country on a regular basis, and no one is safe. New President Wayne Palmer (D. B. Woodside) has arranged Jack's release from a Chinese prison camp. Jack is to be traded to the terrorists in exchange for a promised cease fire.

Jack agrees to give his life for the peace of his country. But when he finds out that it was all a lie, he escapes to begin another cat and mouse hunt with the terrorists. Only this time, they've already struck once, leading to a calamity. Meanwhile, the trail leads Jack to his own family. What secrets are his dad and brother hiding? Can he stop the terrorists before they unleash even more terror on America?

And more importantly, what happened to this once great show? I've been a fan of this show since season one. While my favorite season was the third, I've thought all of the previous seasons were great. But not this one.

Part of the problem was the been there, done that factor. The writers seem to be out of plot twists, so they are relying on the same one stand bys. Unfortunately, loyal viewers can see those coming. There was very little here that we hadn't seen before, which made the season boring.

The other big problem was the dropped storylines. Several times, a story was introduced and dropped in a matter of episodes. Sometimes, they came back, sometimes they didn't, leaving us hanging. Add to that the increase of personal drama over suspense, and you've got a lack luster season.

Now, it wasn't all bad. This season was still entertaining. But compared to the previous years, day six was a real let down.

I was incredibly disappointed in season Six of 24. The reason I give this a three-star review as opposed to a two is that I think that perhaps the standards for this season to live up to were very dificult coming off of season Five, which is easily the best season of the show thus far. The plot seemed to go in far too many different directions, far too many relationships unresolved and there were far too many questions that remained unanswered. I applaud the show for being ambitious and trying different things, but there were too few moments of Jack doing what he does best and too many moments where the show felt like a long and very boring civics lesson in terms of presidential power and the transfer of it.

Also the problem that seems to be facing this show right now is that Jack has little to no emotional investment anymore in CTU or in his own life. His best friends are all dead (and he's had to kill one of them himself), and his lover is practically catatonic. All he really seems to have left is the job (and his daughter), but that just doesn't seem like enough. The brains behind this great show had better find someone or something fast to get Jack to reinvest himself in emotionally or else this season could be the harbinger of doom for the Hour of Bauer's Power!!

Season 6 of "24" was the "Leftovers Season"--the season in which the writers threw all sorts of plot threads and characters on screen to see which ones stuck. None did. The plot devices were too familiar and peaked too early (I won't reveal how, for those of you who didn't see all of Season 6), the returning characters had nothing new to do, and the new characters lacked screen time for proper development. Kiefer Sutherland was great, as always, and the show still had sufficient momentum to be watchable. But "must-see TV" it wasn't. What it was was a waste of both fine returning actors (Mary Lynn Rajskub, Gregory Itzin, Jean Smart, Kim Raver, William Devane, Eric Balfour) and promising new actors (James Cromwell, Rick Schroder). The show's producers promised a radical rethinking of the show for Season 7, but with the ongoing writers' strike, I guess we're going to have to wait a while.
