As a huge fan of 24 from the airing of the first episode, I waited with great anticipation every season for the return of Jack Bauer to our television screens. Yes, 24 had viewers stretching the limits of reality at times, but the overall draw for me was the brokenness and vulnerability Kiefer Sutherland brought to the character of Jack Bauer. Despite some of the despicable things he was either forced to do or did by choice, Jack was no merciless macho man, but an agent who did what he was ordered to do then paid the consequences on a personal and emotional level.

The true essence of the character was never so apparent than those seasons in which Jack was in love with Audrey Raines. For me, the series began to go downhill in Season 7 with the introduction of the character Renee Walker, who was stiff and unbelievable. Season 8, which brought back her character, was a slide into awfulness from the first episode on. The chemistry between Jack and Renee was non-existent and I found myself longing to see Audrey come back from her mental illness and help Jack regain his humanity.

The worst part of Season 8, however, was the out-of-control, no-mercy Jack Bauer who supposedly went on a shooting spree over the loss of Renee? Please. Audrey I could buy. Renee I could not. Some have noted that the spree had to do more with the overall injustice he had experienced throughout his career but it did not come across that way. Instead, for a man who had lost his wife and daughter (his daughter at least for most of the series), Audrey Raines, and countless friends to go beserk over a character as bland and downright annoying as Renee Walker was too much of a stretch for my imagination.

Still, with the horrific ending to an otherwise stellar series (and a phenomenally excellent movie--Redemption), I look forward to the 24 movie in 2013. Audrey, please come back. Jack, please come back. Chloe, please never change from your entertainingly loopy but loveable self.

If you have not watched 24, I suggest you view the first six seasons and Redemption, then attempt Season 7. Season 7 gives us the bittersweet reunion between Jack and his daughter, but by the time we get there so annoyed by the rest of what has happened in the season that we really don't care. Season 8 is a waste of time and money unless you take to the Renee Walker character in Season 7. Evidently, many did. I just don't get it. One positive thing DID happen in Season 8 - the writers killed off the Walker character so at least we all know that if that 24 movie ever gets off the ground we won't have to put up with Renee.

I was ready to give this season 4 stars up through the 16th episode. The end of the 16th episode would have been a good place to end this thing, because after that. . .whoever wrote the 17th episode (and beyond) obviously has never seen any of the earlier seasons, ESPECIALLY not Season 6. How the producers and directors and actors could have gone along with the asinine plot(s) beginning in the 17th hour is beyond me. I'm not even going to waste my time watching the 18th through 24th episodes, it's too ridiculous and ludicrous. Let me just point out the glaring goofs in the 17th episode and then I'll shut up:

Don't get me wrong, I love Chloe, she's good at what she does as far as it goes, but to make her head of CTU? That's a real stretch.
Secondly, a woman being accepted as head of a Muslim country? What planet is this writer living on? Don't they know ANYTHING about Muslim beliefs and customs? Come on, gimme a break!
But the real kicker for me was when they brought Charles Logan back from the dead and into the thick of things. Excuse me, but President Logan was murdered by his wife during Season 6, or doesn't anyone remember? And now he 'miraculously' rises from the dead to save the day? With absolutely no ATTEMPT at explaining how he's supposed to be walking around alive? Or maybe he's supposed to be a Zombie, maybe that's it.
At any rate, I'm going to call this season of 24, 16, and not waste my time on the final 7 episodes (I wish I hadn't seen #17).
If I could, I'd give this thing a NEGATIVE 5 stars. It stinks to high heaven. Don't waste your time on the thing.

Sorry, but this is season wasn't worth a long review.

This seasons shows dissolved into a vary bad PC whipping of plots in previous shows.

It tried to make it psychological but it was a obvious hack job on the shows previous characters and concepts.

By mid season I couldn't watch any more shows and I really wished I had given up sooner rather than waste my time.

The story line is so unrealistic it is beyond ridiculous. Acting is poor for the most part. Even Jack isn't on top of his game. I have been a big fan for 7 seasons until this one!

Love the series, but the repeated pauses for loading is driving us crazy. Meanwhile Netflicks is working just fine so we know it's not our internet connection.

There was a mark all the way through the case. It missed all the disc but the last one. So we could not watch the last disc on the the final season!!

Looks good but the new actors are terrible. Really bad and it's so cheesy. Jack is still a bad ass but the rest painful.

Getting too graphic and violent for me. I loved it at first but as you go you get too violent.
