The epic drama 24, is coming to an end completing its eight season, making it the longest espionage related T.V. series ever, ahead of Mission Impossible and The Avengers.
The show revolves around Jack Bauer, a former CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) agent as of season 8, working to save the country from various things including terrorism, mass destruction/bombings, assassinations, and much more. Over the seasons, he has had many successes and a very short list of failures.
Why I enjoy this show more than others is because of the connecting storyline. The episodes in one season connect to each other and usually end in cliffhangers. Not only that, but the seasons connect to each other in a special way, and often times the show references to events that occurred in the previous seasons. It is different from a show like CSI. It is more like Lost in terms of connectivitiy.
I’ve enjoyed the show and watched in since its beginning 2001, and grown up with it ever since. Of course back then, I barely understood what was going on, but it feels good to go back to the previous seasons and watch it over again, and realize things you didn’t previously. The finale is due May 24 of 2010, only three weeks away! It is sad to see such an amazingly written show approaching its end, but it had to come to an end sometime soon because Jack Bauer is getting old fast..just like Bruce Willis from Die Hard.
