OT: 24 finale (spoilers)

I know everyone says "24" isn't as good as it used to be, but I only started watching at Season 4.  Last night closed out the season and the series.  Overall, I thought it was a pretty good season, with enough "holy sh!t" moments to keep me coming back each week.  I really loved the Renee character and thought bringing her back added a lot to the story, especially when she was going back undercover and chopped off the guy's hand and when she saved Jack from being executed.

What did people think of last night's finale?  I thought it was pretty good, but really struggled with why the henchmen didn't kill Jack at the ambush.  It reminded me of Austin Powers bad-guy stupidity, "No, we can't shoot you here.  We need to put a hood over your head, load you in a van and take you somewhere else to shoot you!"

I also wondered if President Taylor could have done everything she did, including threatening to blow a country off the face of the map, was she really capable of having a change of heart like she did and willing to go to jail?

Dana Walsh was a good character, but if she was really that cold-blooded-badass, why didn't she just kill the old boyfriend as soon as he showed up and started causing his trouble?

The other real problem I had was how big and out-of-control the conspiracy got and yet they were still capable of keeping it under wraps.  Were Jack, Cole and Arlo the only people willing to question what was going on?

 

OK, enough of my rambling.  What did people think?
