After eight days on the job, Jack Bauer has had enough. 24 is over. Maybe it was the lack of sleep coupled with the overwhelming charge of saving the Western World. Maybe it was the fact that, as the above graphic accurately points out, Jack never got the chance to relieve himself. Maybe it was working with Chloe. Maybe he never got over Edgar’s death. Or maybe Jack finally came to his Brad moment (Teen Wolf reference in 3 – 2 – 1):
“Come on guys, I can’t do this all by myself.”
Though it was the longest eight days ever, I’m going to miss ol’ J.B. and his cast of CTU characters. I have to admit that I barely watched this year. In fact, I’ve barely watched since the fifth day. But ironically, 24 was the great security blanket of television. It was always there and it was always entertaining. If nothing else, 24 served up endless Jack Bauer absurdity.
Hurry to the big screen, J.B.
