A - Because Zhi he was smart enough to get caught alive.
B - The 'brains' of day 5 just fizzled in day 6. Did dad neuter Graem?
C - The Bauer slide was awesome. It ties with Sayid's neck break in the Lost finale for the most awesome action move this season.
D - Creepy...I'm just glad we didn't see the Veep with his clothes off.
B - Just awesome. I got chills when he killed that bastard.
B - I mean, why did they bring Martha back just to make her crazy again? Chloe--um..angry/irritable Chloe was sorely missed too.
B - The 'Bauer Bunch' story line bugged me.
C - Lennox survived the day without a scratch. Can't be said of the other nominees.

How did I miss these 24 posts?

1. Best Villain:
e) Noah Daniels - Not only the most believable 'villain,' I actually bought him as (acting) president by the end, unlike Mr. Palmer.

2. Worst villain. (The villain who made you roll your eyes.)
c) Phillip Bauer - Great acting, but the writing was so bad his actions seemed simply random.

3. Best Jack Bauer move. (Imagine Jack. In action.)
a) The jugular bite - It was all downhill from there.

4. Worst love triangle. (Get ready to gag.)
E) all of the above.

5. Best Jack Bauer line. ("Dammit," doesn't count.)
d) "I just watched my father die and I felt nothing." -- To Audrey Raines' father. For about 10 minutes in the last episode, Jack Bauer became a real person.

6. Most under-used character. (Someone you really wanted to see in better storylines.)
a) Charles Logan - he would have easily been "best villain" if he had the chance.

7. Worst plot turn. (As with the worst villain categories, these too made your eyes roll or feel as though opportunities had been missed.)
c) Detonating a nuclear bomb in Valencia - a disaster like that could have lead to hundreds of interesting stories of tragedy, heroism, hope, and humanity. Instead it was forgotten a few hours later while we worried about whether Audrey was still alive.

8. Best hero (aside from Jack).
c) Tom Lennox - he really grew, turning from an annoying villain to a hero by the end.

" You know, at the risk of a stoning by all fans, I wouldn't mind seeing Rick Shroeder as Mike Doyle in his own series."
Huggliver

It's been done; A blind investigator -- "Longstreet," starring James Franciscus, circa 1971.

1, Best villain: Phil Bauer -- for the "role model" that he was to his boys.

2, Worst villain: Bishop. (though he did get more than I did that night).

3, Jack move: He took "go for the jugular" literally.
How about saving that guy in the helicopter with a TV antenna?

4, Worst love triangle: Nadia and anyone with pants on.
But Chloe/Morris/Milo just was not right.

5, Best line: Say hello......

6, Most underused: Chloe

7, Worst plot line: For crying out loud! A friggin' ATOMIC BOMB was exploded in LA/Valencia, and not one store was looted.

8, Best hero: Nadia -- for showing true leadership by identifying Milo as the one in charge. Really, at the end it has to be Doyle.
