I think just two hours of the clip played here on a loop would have been a lot more satisfying and entertaining than that crap-ass finale.
I mean granted, given the corner they wrote themselves into, there wasn’t a ton they could do with it. But wow, they really didn’t even try.
I think this whole season would have been much better as a 10-minute preview for next season. Just cut out all the shit with the nerve gas and the questionably Russian terrorists, and just have what happened in the last 5 minutes happen.
That would have nicely set up what I pray will be a much, much better season next year. Everyone has an off year, I just hope this is 24’s only one.
