24:' 10-11 a.m. The final countdown.

Throughout this season of “24” I have to admit that I have been a bit disappointed. The plot line still has its suspenseful ticking countdown, race to the bomb before it destroys an entire city, and all of the other tried and true devices. But, the season just isn’t holding up. Unlike the series’ previous prophetic characters and situations, Day 8 is playing out more and more to be hackneyed and predictable.

    The last few hours of “24” are barreling ahead towards next week’s 2 hour season finale. In the last two episodes we have seen Jack gut, blow torch, saber, and kidnap bad guys and ex-presidents. For a show that has developed its following based on shock value and suspense it seems reasonable to assume that these episodes are going to culminate in a final blow out like we have never seen. Or, we may be just a little bit disappointed. Over at the “LOST” blogs everyone is carrying on about how no answers will be good enough and the show as a whole will be forever tarnished because of an unsatisfying series finale. Despite my waffling cynicism about this Season 8 of “24” it looks like the writers may just pull off one hell of a show stopper."

    a) No matter how strong of a female character they may be, the women in Jack’s personal life will always end up dead, crazy, or get written out of the show. Once they have served the purpose of showing Jack’s inability to have personal connections, they are no longer needed.

While we were only given three out of four, I have to start this week’s recap with an OMG!!1! from next week’s previews: President Logan will return. Those creepy Russians are comin’ back!
