5- What more can I say about season 5? Shocking, thrilling and damnably amazing. Nearly perfect all the way through. Logan could never be topped as the best villain in the show's run.
2- The most underrated day by far! It shocks me how often people overlook this season. Yes, Kim's scenes were painfully bad all the way through but the main story was among the most complex and brilliant of all. From Jack and Nina to NSA's covert plot to the fabrication of the audio file to Sherry Palmer's return to Mason taking control of the plane... I can't say enough about how brilliant this season was imo. Plus Palmer was a tour de force and Jack didn't bounce around from place to place/story to story as much as he did in later seasons, kind of like a cross between day 1 and the later seasons, it had a more realistic feel to it.
1- I'll never forget how blown away I was by this season. It gained an advantage by being the first because I like many others had never seen anything like it. I was captivated from hour one. Plus imo it still has the best finale.
8- Personally I liked the slow start. The fact that they took their time to set up the main threat was a wise choice imo. The Hassan arc was just incredibly well done all the way to the end. Chloe was ace as was Jack, Renee,Taylorand Logan. All else I can say is that the fact that 24 after 8 years, could still shock, thrill and captivate me as well as ever proves just how special season 8 truly is.
7- The season of the Almeida! I'm still amazed 24 was able to recover so well after season 6. This day is special because of the great villains and the fact that they came in such great numbers. From Almeida to Dubaku to Hodges to Wilson. Just when we thought we knew the mastermind someone else was revealed... I was loving it! Also the addition of great characters like Renee, Moss and Taylor.
3- The reason I think most overlook this one is because of 3 reasons: 1: others were just simply better and more original and 2: because many of the twists just didn't land well (namely Kyle Singer) and 3: CTU had gotten a bit stale, Kim was there for hell's sake!!! Still great stuff though.
4- Not one of my favorites for one reason: instead of Tony, Michelle and Palmer we got Driscoll, Heller and Keeler. Chloe was excellent but even she was cast out in the first few eps. Plus the villains were lackluster imo... just onerandom plot after another made it feel like an incoherent year rather than just one day... Still a great season though.
6- I have nothing to say here. I have literally blocked this day from my memory.
