I've always thought it was a pretty universal thought that 24 was really awesome for 3 seasons, and then began slowly going downhill. Some say 2 seasons, some may say 4, but I didn't think anyone thought that 5,6,7 were the best. Weird.

Once they killed off Nina things started to go downhill imo.

A lot of people will say that 5 is good and 6 is where it totally jumps the shark.

Last season had the potential to be the GOAT but it finished rather lamely.

edit Also a LOT of people consider 5 to be the best season. I'm not in that camp though I think 2 was the best.

How many of you have been done a rewatch of all the seasons? I've watched them all but it's still surprising to me everyone can recap their favourite order.

I remember 3 as my favourite because of some great Jack and Chase scenes, a great ending, and president i didn't hate, that's about it really. I couldn't think of most episodes and be sure what season they were in or could i recall the plots from most seasons.

I'm considering a rewatch but one thing i vividly remember from all of 24 how Kim was so annoying and so effin' dumb throughout the early part of that season that i couldn't suspend my disbelief.

I don't ever remember 24 ever being as boring as it has been the last 90 minutes. It's been dumb and ludicrous but never out and out boring like this

Yeah, but now we have Stephen Root as the parole officer!

I wonder if anyone has seen is stapler?

Two seasons.

Season 1 and 2.

Season 2 being the best. More fully developed than season 1.

Why is there a countdown timer on a suicide vest?
They almost made it to kill that horrible Dana Wlash side story. So close

-The guy playing Marcos is a sucky actor, I'm sorry. I laughed when he was yelling. And how come Marcos didn't wipe the blood off his nose the whole hour? However, I feel creepy saying this, but I've never seen such beautiful blood splatter as when that bomb went off

-Oh Tarin, BIG surprise. Is it just me, or does 24 have a history of paranoia being correct? Someone will get paranoid about a suspect, be "wrong" then later turn out right. My memory's fuzzy, but I KNOW Tarin ain't the first. 24: Be paranoid, because you'll be right!

-Dana, stop gritting your teeth so much when you talk, you look like a vampire ready to bite. And for God's sake, did we really need that probation officer? Ugh, kill this side story already!

-Jack threatening to kill Mommy...just another day in the office, right?

that's definitely not a parole officer.

sadly, all the plots suck this year

Digital timer on the suicide vest . . . wow. What a terrible season.

Stephen Root is def Kevin's dad.

nobody can look at that face Jack made and not give in. it was the best "I can kill you" with a look since Ellis told that dude if he could see what's in his eyes, he'd crawl under a rock and hide in season 1.

Karak's 2nd prediction of the season (again based on NO inside info and simply my own conjecture):

Spoiler:
Chloe is going to die. Every season a major character dies. There are no characters left to die which will cause an emotional reaction except Chloe, Jack and maybe (but probably not) Rene. It has to be Chloe. Bye Chloe. I'll cry.

I actually liked this episode a lot. Less stupid plots, more jack.

Jack's reaction when Hassan told him that Tarin and his daughter were in love was pretty funny too.
