This is by far the worst season of 24...I gave it a shot...I think I'm done forever.
They seriously needed to drop the whole widespread government conspiracy ********...they've done that and its just not entertaining or compelling anymore. The whole idea that the government can be corrupted and infiltrated to the top levels OVER AND OVER AGAIN is just ridiculous and just isn't even based in reality anymore. And the whole forced overtone of the torture commentary is getting absurd..."BUT WE CAN'T TORTURE HIM, CONGRESS WILL GET US". 24 is taking itself way too seriously again and it shows in all 4 episodes.
I was entertained by Redemption because it was something fresh and simple...this season is just a rehash of old and new Die Hard movies and previous seasons of 24...all we need is the reporter and John McC... err Jack Bauer's daughter on another plane...
The only thing that can save this season is a HUGE body count by Jack...and even that, we haven't seen...lame.
