THE standard for how to write a compelling series finale
20 May 2017 | by jjpscott01See all my reviews

I will refrain from spoiling anything in case you've been living under a rock for the past two decades, but the finale of the first season of 24 rocked the television world in 2002. At the time, TV was the not the "cinematic" experience that it is today. This ending to what was already a compelling first season for the series, manages to break your heart and keep you on your toes at the same time. It is paced brilliantly and allows us just enough "space" to think back on Jack's last 23 hours. It dials the intensity up to 11 with Jacks final encounter with the Drazens and then allows your pulse to settle for a short moment before it sends you out with an emotional wallop. The whole thing felt very real and well thought out. Keifer Sutherland's portrayal of a broken man holding on by a short thread is nothing short of brilliant. Do yourself a favor if you never watched this series and lock yourself a way for a weekend to experience season 1 all at once. You will feel exhausted when its all over but in the best way possible.
