24 - Series Finale


heaven&hell

Recommended Posts

For a season finale the final scene was a let down but overall the episode was killer. I guess knowing that their working on a 24 the Movie should make things better and made it were they couldn't kill Jack off or anything. I have hoped for years that Chase(James Badge Dale) would come back somehow but not sure if that'll happen or not. It's to bad they've killed off so many major charaters that it will make it hard to bring someone back from the old days. I guess Wayne Palmer is still alive or they could bring Michelle Dessler back from the dead. I can't remember if they ever killed off Nina Myers or not either. It's just to bad they couldn't of been given one more final season where they knew was the final and they could of pulled out all the stops. Bringing Gregory Itzin(President Logan) back for this season was a stroke of genius IMO. He has to be up there as one of the most hated people in the 24 history.

I watched the episode last night at 10. (I watched the Chuck season finale first.)

 

I really enjoyed it. I, honestly, thought the ending was great. (Other than the fact that Jack is, yet again, on the run, just like at the end of season 4, I believe it was. After all he's been through, to finally be able to enjoy his daughter and granddaughter would have been nice. Although, I guess they reasoned it might be difficult to pull him away from that for the movie. Plus, it just wasn't with keeping with how Jack's life has gone.) By the fact that Jack admitted to Chloe that she was his rock and watching Chloe break down, that last scene was super intense. (It was rough holding back the tears.)

 

Sad that Logan took the cheap way out. (And then ends up still possibly surviving; could he be a possible foil for Jack in the movie?) After all the bloodshed Jack caused the last few episodes, I guess they figured that they needed to bring him down from the rogue agent deal. (Although, if he was going to have to go on the run anyway, a few more killings wouldn't have hurt. haha) Jack going all Mike Tyson on Pillar was fantastic! And in the end, Pillar going to bat for Jack, telling Logan to call off the hit (presumably because Jack let him off the hook after he begged for his life because he had a little girl at home). This hit pretty much all the way around.

 

While 24 had some weak moments over the years (even the beginning of this season with the whole "Jenny from the sticks" plot), it ended up being an integral part of the American television over the past decade. I will sorely miss it. I hope they do it justice with any impending movies.

I guess I mispoke the final scene between Chloe and Jack was very very good but the let down for me was him leaving and being on the run and it was final enough I guess. But hopefully their able to do some great things with a movie and maybe movies. It could almost be like a whole new Bourne Identity type movies with a rouge agent. I will miss the show dearly as well. I didn't get into until before season 6 but was given season 1 for Christmas that year and loved it so much had to go buy seasons 2-5 to catch up. A damn great show and it won't be the same without this on the air.

    • New song 'Good Luck Trying'.    
    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
