I'll be right back...
I watched maybe two episodes of "24" this season, but I can pick it right up at the season finale without missing a beat. I guess fans must enjoy the ride.
And even my wife, who's never seen a single episode of the show, was rolling her eyes when Jack said "I'll be right back..."
Good ending, leading right into next season... or maybe the "24" movie.
UPDATE: The local "24" fanatics in the office hated the ending. They wanted Jack to get some rest, or get some lovin', or get a bathroom break.
Ffffft! This ain't no sissy show: Jackie doesn't get to sleep and Jackie doesn't get a kiss and Jackie has to hold it in for the rest of time.
Deal with it. He's on a slow boat to China and next season will be filmed entirely inside a Chinese sweatshop where Jack will be forced to assemble combination VCR/DVD players 24 hours a day. (That's why he was more valuable alive, get it?).
