24 Redemption - Meh

I watched 24 Redemption last week but I've seen it before. Tears of the Sun comes to mind. It's been done and I was bored by the two hour, 67 commercials movie.
They should have let Jack Bauer ride off into the sunset seasons ago. How much more tortured can a man get? I'm less than thrilled for 24 season 7. With every season there's a new President of the United States, so that put us in about the year 2024, give or take. A television show has jumped the shark when they start bringing people back from the dead. And that would be Tony. He's coming back, again.
So I have to decide if I really want to get into another season of Jack Bauer kicking ass. See just saying that makes me want to watch it and then there's Chloe, my favorite character, I'd miss her. I don't know what to do.

I like to think of 24 as that really bad car accident on the other side of the highway that you don't want to look at, but you can't turn away from it. I am sure my DVR will be set to record each ridiculously over acted episode.

I finally got around to watching Redemption (after taping it earlier). I'll second your "Meh." I used to love this show, and I've watched every episode since the first, and I'd feel oddly disloyal if I quit watching it now. But it reeked of meh-ness, and I am so so so so tired of, and disgusted by, seeing people being tortured, and I really don't want to watch a scene where Jack tries to justify torture to Congress, which it looks like he will do from the coming attractions. Haven't we had more than enough lame justifications in real life? But, still, the show has an odd tug on me ... so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. (And ditto on Chloe being my favorite character.)
