“24″ 2006 Season Finale

24 24 2006 Season FinaleI’ve come to a startling conclusion:

Jack Bauer is Batman.

Really, it’s the only plausible explanation for Jack to be able to do everything he does. icon smile 24 2006 Season Finale

Season 5 of 24 (man, has it been 5 years already?) has been one rockin’ ride. So much so that the finale was almost a letdown. Almost. Maybe it was just emotional exhaustion from the previous 22 episodes, or the fact that the show is so proficient at keeping viewers on the edge of their seats, that our tolerance increases and we need ever increasing levels of suspense and shocks.

Bottom line: It was excellent and wrapped things up neatly and satisfactorily, except for what happens to the weasel who erased the critical evidence. No doubt he will turn up in Season 6 since no one besides the President knows what he did. I have to say that the method with which they got the confession was brilliant and unexpected. Nicely done, folks.

And then of course there was the “shocker” at the end (Drag your cursor over the text below to view):

The Chinese show up in the last minutes of the episode to kidnap and beat the hell of Jack, and then put him on a freighter to China!

I guess it’s just not possible to end a season of any show these days without a bloody cliffhanger, eh? At least we know next season should be quite different from prior ones, and that’s a really good thing since even though the show has been high quality, the plot lines can get redundant.

Also, I personally love the fact that they start later in the TV season and run the episodes every week without repeats or interruption. I wish more shows would do that (Lost is taking a hint from 24 and will not run repeats next season).

Here’s looking forward to next year.

  1. Yeah, that finale was quite a roller coaster ride. Aside from all the implausibilities and impossibilities (which are to be expected), I really didn’t get how Jack could hijack a plane, murder someone in cold blood, kidnap El Presidente and still be able to walk around freely when Audrey shows up. Yeah, that would happen…

    The way President Logan resigns to avoid formally facing charges is probably realistic, since that already happened to Nixon. However, Nixon did not have a former president killed, nor did he supply terrorists with nerve gas. Logan did it for the good of the country… ha! That’s politicians for you. How come nothing ever happened to Graham, the dude from Robocop who had the wireless receiver in his ear while he was talking to Logan? That guy was complicit in everything from Day 1 (or is that Hour 1?). Yeah, I know Logan took “certain precautions” to avoid implicating Graham and his posse, but come on, Jack Bauer knows how to get around that stuff, doesn’t he? :P


  2. Any body know when 06 finale will be re-aired. :roll:

  3. It’ll probably come out on DVD before it re-airs on some cable network.
