Actually, if you hold a gun (w/silencer) to my head while you erase all traces of your existance, I'd have to say that last week was just slightly better.

Not that this wasn't good - this was very good. I wish I keep notes to mention how good it was.

The Palmer split? Very well done. With that look on her face, you knew she was gonna go to ignore what David said, go straight to the press, and do whatever the heck she wanted too. And yet, she didn't see it coming - she was "you're making mistakes, you're messing up - I AM NOT WRONG" to the very end - which was a little bit surprising. How it ended with her was great, and I'd guess the cheap cheezy way would be her to be revealed as a big part of some plot to get Palmer next season ...and as much as I don't like cheap and cheesy, I'd want her around in some way because Sherry was a really fun chracter - if a little one note by the end.

Nina as the mole was played great - since we only got a little piece of her real story, I'm guessing we've got a great big chance of seeing more of her next season - though I wish she and Tony had a chance to have some real confrontation before the end - the glance wasn't enough for me. Ah, the lives of secondary characters never truly matter. (Or maybe we get THAT next season too? Tony, having moved up with Jack to Washington, has a decision where he can help Nina [or whoever she is] or do his job...nah.)

You know, I thought "hey, I wonder if Nina killed JAMEY" but I never wrote it down. That was pretty awesome to see come back. Mason giving Kiefer attitude was funny at times - he can stay for next season too.

I think I like the best that someone meaningful dying. Not that I dislike Teri (though I'm sure glad that we'll never have to hear about the baby or the rape agian - and if we some how do? I will make a large screehing noise to block it out) it's that we need some element of vulunarbility to the main characters. Unlike crappy movies, the wife of an agent doesn't always do the impossble and fight back against the female lead. Sometimes, despite your best effort on a day, things don't go all the way right.

Considering, though, those 24 hours went pretty well.

It was very well done indeed...great Non-Hollywood finish. The Palmer split had real intensity. The Drazen kill was awesome, he really went ballistic, great acting job. I want one of those monitors for my car when u can upload anything, I need one now!!! All in all, after CSI, best drama of the year for me.

And it wasn't even his car! It was just some random van he stole! That was pretty neat.

No, he crashed the van he stole. I'm pretty sure that was the same Denali he's been driving around in all season.

Overall, 24 was really good, and that last episode was just what it needed to be. It was a great blend of action and suspense, with some stories resolved and a new one started.

Between 24 and Alias, I can't wait for next season! Thank goodness for World Cup.

Well, I finally got the chance to watch it. My local fox was being a bitch Tuesday night, making it impossible to watch, and I was out last night, so I had to tape the replay on FX. And now, I have only one thing to say.

Ho-lee shit. I was calling the Teri death, but I can't believe they actually did it. What a depressing ending. But at the same time, a really good ending.

Yeah, my wife and I were watching, and as she turned her around, I said to her that it isn't very realistic that Nina isn't going to kill her.

Then when Jack found her, it all made sense...

Sorry I'm late to the dance but I had to catch this one on tape. It was really quite awesome, I must say. I went from being extremely critical of this series to being quite taken with it and I'm looking forward to next season.

I still think they're leaving the possibility open that Mrs. 24 could survive - if they really wanted her out, it would have been easy enough for Nina to shoot her in the head. Nina shot her in the torso instead, meaning the Mr. & Mrs. 24 Reconciliation Baby is out of commission at the very least, and that 24 has very Drazen-like motivation for a PERSONAL VENDETTA~ against Nina and whomever she's working for. Dig the symmetry.

Palmer ruled the show and brought the DRAMA. Outstanding.
