So, no more series of 24. This used to be an absolute must-watch programme for me, for the first couple of series at least. Then it all went a bit bonkers, with Jack Bauer torturing someone every episode. Sometimes not even the bad guys. I think it really jumped the shark in series 4 when a lawyer from Amnesty turns up to try to stop someone being tortured and is portrayed as a baddie – a lackey of the terrorists. That was the last series I’ve watched, so JB may have since cleaned up his act, or if the downward trajectory has continued series 8 probably saw him torturing kittens and Joanna Lumley.
