It’s funny what’ll happen when you discover an old friend or family member is passing away: sometimes, you’re more inclined to forgive them for any mistakes they’ve made and make amends with them for their flaws, however fatal they may be. 24 is sort of like that at this point. It’s been announced recently that 24 would not be returning for a 9th season. That’s right, eight years of Jack Bauer killing terrorist after terrorist seems to be about as much as Fox is willing to air. I admit that I take in this news with a heavy heart; 24 was the first serial drama show that I started watching. It was the first show to draw me into the world of television. Hearing that it’s being canceled upsets me, even though it’s clear the show has reached a point when it just needs to end. Thankfully, the writers seem to have constructed this season to end on a strong note, and I’m sure after a few minor edits to the scripts, the finale of the show will be powerful and memorable, something that can’t be forgotten.
