BEST SEASON! Indeed, the fifth season of 24 is the best season thus far... And I thought the fourth season was good.... Boy was I wrong when I saw season 5... Right from the first hour onwards, you will be hooked to find out what is going to happen next... Unpredictability, suspense and great acting. This one had it all..
The fifth season of 24 was also the winning season as they dominated the 2006 Emmys... It was just a brilliant season!
Fox, bring on season 6!!!Best Season of the Best Show on Television "24" is quite simply the greatest show to appear on television in a good long while and season five is its finest hour. Five seasons in, series creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran continue to spring one unpredictable surprise after another, sending super agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland, by equal turns lethally charismatic and emotionally bruised) against his most formidable foes yet that include everyone and anyone from Russian Separatists, authoritarian double agents to high ranking members of the government. Fans of the season will know exactly who these baddies are, but for those unitiated, the head-spinning surprises are best left unsaid. What can be said, is that for this fifth season the crack writing staff took a good hard look at the state of geopolitics and the authoritarian neo-conservatism championed by the Bush administration and worked in a cautionary tale about oil-lust and hubris taken to extremes. Besides Sutherland, special recognition has to go to Gregory Itzin as the weak-kneed President Logan, Jean Smart as the harried first lady and Mary Lynn Rajskub as the nerdy Chole O'Brien. For the show, this season presented a tricky balancing act between the shows' signature slam-bang action scenes (there are still spectacular) and the sobering political commentary, but Surnow and Cochran nail it, making "24" a thinking man's thriller that is far smarter and far more relevant than anything else on television.The Original When "24" first premiered 5 days (read "seasons") ago, there wasn't anything quite like it on television. And that is what caught my attention about this show. I was drawn in! Crisp writing, mostly unpredictable and (don't forget that clicking clock!) made this show a must watch for me. And I must say, over 5 seasons later, I still consider this show a must watch. Now, there have been many shows that have come about that I would call "flatterers by imitation", some of which are also some of my favorite shows..."Lost", "Prison Break" and "Heroes" to name a few.
I'm glad that Kiefer Sutherland was finally recognized for his contribution to this show and I'm looking forward to the upcoming movie!
