    i think a film will either be really good, or really bad for 24. If they bugger it up then people will be turned off by 24. Iv heard that some of it will be recorded in england?

    By the sounds of it people are already turned off by 24. Keifer Sutherland has said they're looking to revamp the show next year and that ends will be wrapped up. I suppose it fits nicely that the first six seasons will wrap as two trilogies.

    Plus, how brutal was

    Who did he play? :confused: Didn't see his mug anywhere.

    Show does need a revamp I think.

    A better episode compared to recent weeks, but now what? It will be a bit stupid if all the terrorists just leave now. Will they camp there until the end of the day? I reckon Doyle's team will catch them as they leave the building.

    The recent episodes have been okay, but apart from that, the whole season has generally been boring. It has to be the crappest season ever.

    I dont know whether its the season itself being crap or whether its just a victim of redoing what theyve done before, its nothing new!

    Yeah, the repeating definitely has something to do with it. But there's something else as well, I just can't pin point it :p:

    Repetition and tortuous plot twists are a major problem. However I also think one of the problems is that season after season we've lost more of the early staple characters (Nina, Tony, Michelle, D.Palmer, Sherry, Georget et al), and the awesome dynamic and backstories that developed between them in S1/S2 has been replaced by that of disparate and bland characters, often with no interesting backgrounds or relationships with each other beyond their place of work. Watching 24 has now become like watching a run-of-the-mill police/crime drama, with a few central characters but lots of people in the background that get turned over regularly.

    Me no like

    I've very much liked this season actually.

    But a new direction is needed before it becomes stale for me.

    Milo ... :mad:


    Have to say I've quite enjoyed this season - a few big, 'wow' moments, although I'd agree that something entirely new is needed and some stronger characters are certainly required.
