Saving the best until last,
This review is from: 24 - Season 8 [DVD] (DVD)
When I heard 24 had been axed I was disappointed but not surprised, as there had been rumours for a while. I did wonder if the ending could do such a great show justice and it most certainly did. The final few episodes were as gripping and adrenaline-fuelled as anything during the show's nine-year run and the audience are kept guessing right up until the final few minutes in what I would undoubtedly say was the best ending to a TV show I have ever seen.
Any long-time viewer had to wonder how Jack had not snapped and gone rogue before now, but here he finally does and it seems nobody can stand in his way as he seeks justice. These episodes give proof beyond doubt that Keifer was simply born to play Jack. It's hard to believe that there will not be another series but I will certainly never tire of watching the show on DVD.
Day 6 was arguably the weakest and while Day 7 had it's good and bad points, Day 8 is one of the best. It could even be argued that this final series even tops the brilliance of Day 1

In total agreement with you there, I did think the first half was quite weak but things certainly pick once the russians were introduced as the main players behind the days & Jack going rogue was simply amazing. Kiefer Sutherland was born to play Jack Bauer & I loved how went about taking out the bad guys (I kinda found myself cheering him, you see you don't mess with Jack Bauer unless you want to end up six feet under). But this being the best season topping season 1 I think is a bit much because it is only the last 6-7 hours that make this season awesome. For my money Season 5 was the best all the way through, this comes a close second though. I loved the ending simply awesome much better than the ending for Fox other Show Prison Break. Respect to you Jack we'll miss you now your gone.
