Jack Bauer will be missed....

Until recently, I was quite happy about Fox's decision to cancel 24. I felt like the show had run its course and all the original ideas they could possibly come up with had been done. Every season felt like it had all the same basic elements with different people playing the same characters: the mole(s) inside CTU, the person on the current president's staff that is working with the other side/has their own agenda in the white house/does not agree with the president's decisions and takes matters into their own hands, Jack starting off the season by quitting his work but ending up being sucked right back in for another 24 hours... Another head of CTU/other authority figure that does not listen to Bauer, ofcourse that leads to the usual Jack disobeying orders and getting into trouble for doing the right thing, etc etc....

However, while watching last night's episode, I actually enjoyed the storyline even though the usual elements were there...somehow, they felt different and I felt like, maybe Fox made the wrong decision by canceling 24. Maybe Jack Bauer will be missed. Actually, he definitely will be missed.

Despite the over-used storylines, I actually still love this show and if it hadn't been canceled, I would have continued to be a loyal fan of the show. I hope this season ends well at least....and maybe a movie somewhere down the line....:)
