I wanted to let a few days pass before I posted about the season finale of “24.” The temporal distance from the show’s conclusion has done nothing to change my initial thoughts:
Horrible. Awful. I can’t believe I wasted those two hours–let alone the 22 prior.
I knew when to jump off of “X-Files.” I’ve never once regretted walking away from “Smallville.” And now, another once-great genre favorite has crossed over to the realm of the unforgivable.
Any doubt of 24’s “jump the sharkness” was put to rest with two simple words from Chloe: “I’m pregnant.” I’m sure the blessed event will occur in the back of a speeding, terrorist-driven, taxicab. Who can save her and her newborn child? Jack freaking Bauer, that’s who.
