Finale Fever: SideReel's Top 10 Favorite Season Finales, Part 2

24 - Season 1, 11:00 P.M.-12:00 A.M. Sorry to admit it, but I lost interest in 24 near the beginning of last season, and have been unable to get back into it since. That being said, the show has had some great seasons, and though people debate which one is their favorite, none for me have ever outdone the thrilling first season, and its thrilling conclusion. Spoiler alert The death of Jack's wife (followed by the now infamous silent countdown clock, reserved for only the most solemn of '24' events) was simply the most unexpected, surprising and fantastic ending that I could have possibly fathomed. Unlike other shows, this shocking event also taught us that important people actually die in 24, which made future seasons all the more exciting. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Season 2, Becoming (1 and 2) I knew I wanted to put a Buffy finale on this list, and I had a difficult time choosing between Season 2 (the one I ultimately selected) and Season 3 (because Graduation was pretty awesome too...). However, I decided that nothing topped the delving into Angel's past and Buffy's realizing that she would have to kill him (Angelus). Then throw in that Angel's soul gets restored after all, but Buffy still had to send him to Hell...you know, to save the world (as Angel's blood is the only thing that will do the trick). Man oh Man, talk about tragedy. This was definitely Buffy at its finest... Alias - Season 1, Almost Thirty Years Episode after episode of Alias 's first season would conclude with a giant cliffhanger that made you go crazy waiting for the next week to arrive. So, it shouldn't be surprising that nothing outdid the Season 1 Finale's cliffhanger. Spoiler Alert The giant Rambaldi device is destroyed by Sydney, simultaneously releasing a ton of water. While Sydney manages to get through a closing door and escape the tidal wave, Vaughn is seemingly left to drown. However, most importantly, Sydney finally comes face to face with "The Man" and her season ending words are..."Mom?" (who mind you, was supposed to be dead; thus, Mom is not only not dead, but alive and evil). Friends (1994) - Season 4, The One with Ross's Wedding (1 and 2) Since our finale list has been heavy on the dramas, it's only fair to recognize a comedy finale. Friends had a few great season finales (also loved Season 5's One in Vegas), but I am especially partial to this one, as it also happened to be the first episode that I ever watched of the series (what a great way to start)! This episode was a comedy of errors in relation to all things Ross's wedding, culminating in his marriage-ruining "Rachel" slip at the altar. However, I also loved this finale as it was the beginning of the Chandler/Monica pairing, which provided great new direction for the comedy in its later seasons. Prison Break - Season 1, Flight Like 24 , Prison Break for me was a show that couldn't maintain the excitement of its earlier seasons. Nothing outdid the show's first season (in my opinion), which you might have guessed, climaxed when the guys actually achieved the show's title and broke out of prison ! We had some serious violence in this episode; I will never forget T-Bag's hand getting hacked off. Other huge revelations: Sarah ODing, Steadman's alive!, the President gets assassinated and the guys don't catch their plane, thereby setting up Season 2. What have been your favorite season finales?

'24' Spoiler Alert: Jack's Fate Down to the Last Minute, Plus More Finale Details

Two hours remaining, and 24 is history for yet another season. And a pretty crazy beginning, at that: as the clock hit six in the morning, Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) is in danger yet again, and Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) is forced to threaten the government in an attempt to help Tony (Carlos Bernard) escape. And then, of course, there are the many other questions. What does the "big machine" have in mind? Will tensions within the CTU, or whatever poses as it, continue? Will Jack die?

Kiefer Sutherland Charged with Assault

Earlier, we learned that the " 24 " star had been fingerprinted and a mug shot was taken at the time of his arrest. This comes after reports surfaced that the actor allegedly headbutted Jack McCollough , a Proenza Schouler fashion designer, at a nightclub on Tuesday, Reuters reports. The news agency is also saying that actress Brooke Shields may also be called in for questioning as a witness because she was at the venue where the alleged altercation took place. Source Here

'24' Spoiler Alert: A Return to Extremes--And To Family?

Three more hours to go, and 24 wraps up for yet another day. And while I still don't have any idea how things will exactly go within those three episodes--yeah, imminent attack, chasing after someone, yeah, yeah, that's a given--at least we've laid our hands on some specifics, and some ideas, for the remaining episodes this season, and possibly the fate of the next season as well. As always, it's sourced from Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. Okay. First up, Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) will go face to face with Tony (Carlos Bernard) once again in the episode coming this Monday. Of course, the official press release from Fox wouldn't hit at anything--it only points to Jack facing an "unimaginable situation", and perhaps rightly so. The word is, the scene between the two will be brutal--very brutal. Perhaps a return to the torture tactics that's questioned at the very beginning of the season? The next thing is the involvement of Jack's daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert). I honestly thought we'd see the last of her a few episodes back, when she showed up and asked her dad to get the stem cell treatment after he was infected with that pathogen. The last thing we know, she was heading back home, calling her husband, and us getting a glimpse of her kid. On Monday's episode, she will be returning--of course, she's still in transit--and she'll get entangled in the mess that's building up. That, according to Ausiello, will form a major part of the two-hour finale, which airs on May 18. It also looks like Kim will be staying for the eighth season. There's word that the producers are looking to cast a 6-year-old to play Kim's daughter in the coming season. Word is, the character will appear in a multi-episode arc, so it's also possible that Jack's granddaughter is just paying him a visit in New York. But, as we've all learned while watching 24, nothing's always certain. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List for Monday, April 27, 2009

* Gossip Girl (8 pm/ET The CW ) Michelle Trachtenberg reprises her role as Georgina Sparks, and she returns to the Big Apple as a very different person. However, some things never change: Chuck and Nate find their friendship in peril as they fight over Blair, just as they did last year.

Elsewhere, Hiro and Ando's quest to take down Building 26 faces a new roadblock as Hiro's strange illness progresses. * 24 (9 pm/ET Fox) Last week's episode made it official: FBI agent Larry Moss is really dead, thanks to Tony Almeida, who has now joined a long list of 24 turncoats. Tony's partner in crime, Galvez, was able to sneak a canister of the bioweapon out of Starkwood, so the pathogen crisis continues. And even though Jack's condition is worsening, he soldiers on and manages to interrogate a key suspect. * Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! (10 am/ET Nickelodeon) With a wink to her Destiny's Child roots, Beyonce voices the character of Shine, the lead singer of the Wubb Girlz. The popular group is in town to promote a talent contest called Wuzzleburg Idol. (Wonder where they got that name?) Wubbzy, of course, wants to audition, and he's given a very good piece of advice by the Wubb Girlz: Be yourself. Wubbzy follows that advice and it takes him far...so far that his adventures with the Wubb Girlz continue all week in new episodes. * Two and a Half Men (9 pm/ET CBS) Melanie Lynskey makes a return appearance when Chelsea sets Alan up on a blind date with her new friend, who just happens to be Charlie's onetime stalker, Rose.

24: Day 8 Is Moving To New York... Sort Of - Featured

When all the fuss surrounding Washington, D.C. wraps up in six hours--err, in roughly six episodes on 24 --expect everything to move slightly westward, and to the city that never sleeps. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello reports that the upcoming eighth season of the Emmy-winning action series will be set in New York, or at least, on screen. The show will still be mostly shot in Los Angeles, although Kiefer Sutherland, probably among others, will be shooting some scenes in New York. It may be too early to speculate what exactly will happen, but the move in location may explain some major storylines next season--and the spoilers begin right below, so click with care! 24: Day 8 Is Moving To New York...
