The folks on our affiliate site, AlmeidaIsGod have essentially felt the same about the show during this season. In a similar half-point season review to mine, Kasia put her thoughts down a couple of days ago, too.
I am just kind of bored with the show this season. I think that’s part of the reason why the Episode Summaries have been such a struggle, not just for me but for all of the writers… I have sort of reached the point now where I just don’t care enough anymore…
Following the news of cancellation, Kas, a true Almeidaist, tweets:
It really sucks hardcore that #24 will end its series run on network television without closure to the Tony Almeida character. … I’m not really that sad though, that’s the t hing. Maybe it is time to euthanize it? Does that sound too bitter? … Strangely I’m more sad about Lost ending than 24. Season 8 has disappointed me.
Who knows. Maybe they will bring Tony back in the movie… Hope dies last.
