    Man, this season has sucked something fierce. It's like the writers forgot there were eight more episodes after they killed off the lead terrorist.

    Doesn't anyone think that China attacking CTU would cause nuclear war? Geez.

    The season has sucked, but where could the writers have gone after that first episode?

    Tonight's "oh shit" moment sucked. But Jack killing all those Chinese before getting caught was awesome. I just wish the season hadn't sucked as much as it has...

    A show like that demanded that the viewer take a Road Runner-Wile E. Coyote suspension of belief anyway. And the shelf life of greatness was destined to be short. Be glad it took this long to suck.

    Jack's gonna die this season. I just feel it.

    Well, apparently I'm the only one who liked it.

    I've been enjoying this season although it's the first one that has consistently made me laugh. It's gotten to the point that every time Jack shows up on screen, JR sings the Mighty Mouse theme. :D

    I agree. Four out of the first five seasons were outstanding. It's tough to maintain a show like this.

    I've been saying Jack would die this year for, well, 20 weeks. It's the only place for the show to go. Though a 24 without Jack Bauer would suck even worse.

    The minute Jack's wife had amnesia ... I was done. What was that, the first season? That was my shark-leaping moment.

    The day that happens is the day I stop watching 24.

    I've liked the season, but it just hasn't been as action-packed as I'd hoped. Following up last season would be tough, we all knew that, but the disappointments have been few and far between this season for me.

    CTU's gotta be the worst enforcement agency ever. How many times has it been bombed/invaded/gassed/attacked?
