Maybe my memory is faulty (haha…maybe..snicker), but I don’t remember the last few seasons of ’24’ being so predictable. [WARNING: SPOILER AHEAD]. Several times this year, the show has been as predictable as one of those family shows where you know that ‘dad’ is gonna be a dolt and do something really stupid while mom and the kids roll their eyes.
Tonight was no exception. If you didn’t see that the vexed ex-president’s ex was about to knife her ex, then you haven’t flexed enough Tee-Vee muscle. The camera only showed the knife half a dozen times with all the foreshadowing subtlety of a can of spinach in a Popeye cartoon. Sheesh.
I guess it’s too much to expect the writers to surprise us for twenty-four episodes each year, but I do think they ought to hire a panel of predictability experts who can vet the script for the obvious…just like if the predictability squad was vetting this post.. they could have smelled shark a mile off.
