re: 24

This season included the show’s worst character ever (hello, Dana Walsh) and its worst scene (memo to self: don’t swallow evidence when Jack Bauer is near). I was loyal to the end but am glad it’s over.

I’ve always thought the show would be better if the season was half as long. Alas, 12 doesn’t have the same ring as 24.
