I don't know...when Cheng captured him and the season ended with Jack in the ship headed for China...that was just as bad. Maybe worse. That's a long ride.

And I thought this was positively upbeat, considering there's no way anybody but Jack is leaving that helicopter alive!

But it wasn't just Jack going with the Russians.

It was Audrey dying.

It was the president saying he wouldn't even remember it.

It was Chloe being - well, Chloe.

A combo of depressing...

I thought that was one of the few genuinely moving moments of the entire series. (But, yeah, granted, bit of a downer.)

Yeah, that was a pretty bad combo. Especially the president. But I kind of expected Audrey to go. Man, there have been a lot of cast members, on the good side, that came to bad endings...

To bring things back on topic - i.e., "nuclear" - I just started re-watching season 2, and in the first episode, everyone is pronouncing it correctly (NEW-clear)....

Oh - I totally agree.

But depressing.

I hope there is a day 10...

And I would rather it be 12 1 hour episodes that span 2 hours of Jack Time.

I'd be ok if they just renamed it 12 and went from there.

A common mispronunciation that always bugs me is the word "roof". It should rhyme with "poof", but many people pronounce it so it rhymes with "woof".

For some people all three of those words rhyme.

I think for me poof and woof rhyme, whereas roof is like the vowel sound in tooth.

I guess I should have used "spoof" or "proof" as an example. You get my point, though.

This is another example of something that's a regional pronunciation. Unlike NU-CU-LAR which I hear people from New Yawk, to N'Owlins mispronounce

And has been noted, there's a difference between pronouncing words differently, and scrambling words.

This was still 24 hours.... toward the end of hour 12 they put up a quick:

"12 hours later" on the screen for when Jack got to the helicopter.

Yep, they did it quickly and someone could have missed it. The next to last segment ended at 10:40something p.m. and the next one started at 10:50something a.m.

I didn't miss it, but it was basically just a gimmick to maintain the 24 hour span of the show. Other than that one jump, all events happened in real time per the show's format. But I think a 12 episode season is just fine, so what the hell, let's reboot the franchise as "12."

I agree I thought it was a silly thing to tack on just to make it "24".

Or we could still have 24, next time do this...

Episode 1, scene 1. Jack goes to bed at say, 10 pm. Falls asleep. A phone call wakes him up 12 hours later...it's the President! There's a situation. Show continues in one-hour real time episodes for the next 12 hours.

They could eat up 12 hours per season between episodes by having him travel to a different country a couple of times.

How about any time he gets in a car, it takes him the more realistic 1 hour to get somewhere in large cities?

Nah, beaming from place to place is hard-wired into the show's DNA by now...

I think the time jump did a little bit more than maintain the 24-hour cycle; it also allowed us to see a bit of the denouement, the fallout for the events of the show, which is something that the real-time aspect has often left us to infer or just live without. It was a little gimmicky but I think it also worked well.
