When I saw that this thread had some many comments since yesterday, I knew something was hope. I'd only hoped it not to be another CTU mole. Indeed, in season 1 it was a shocker (and there it wasn't revealed until the next-to-last episode or so), but now...

And Renee Walker!

Ugh. Stupid NBC, and FOX one more Day to give the characters a proper conclusion would have been appreciated, bring on the big screen franchise.

It's really time though.

And the film is already in the works, so there's that.

Don't get your hopes up on the film.
Remember how bad the last X-Files movie turned out.

It seems it is very difficult to write a good script these days.

Honestly this series always had the potential to be the best television show of all time, it had action and compelling character drama all rolled into the most exciting conceit ever created, the problem is that they never planned the days all the way through and so the usually the middle of the season is a lot of intolerable filler and they don't trust audiences' intelligence or patience, it has to be immediate action to equal thrill-a-minute, which is just not true, and not how the show started. Days 1-3 however are pretty much the best network series you can imagine, they definitely needed to move out of LA right after that, unfortunately it took them 3 more years to do so. 5, 7 and 8 have a lot of high points, but the unplanned writing hits each of them (and 5 assassinates too many characters). I'm just pissed for what they did to Tony, and now they won't be able to rectify that.

The built in 24 characters, and Billy Ray as screenwriter should help, I'm hoping anyway we're getting closer to the intelligence of Ray's Shattered Glass and Breach.

Day 1 is one of the greatest things I have ever witnessed in a television series, hands down, bar none.

Day 1 was great. I guess it helped that is was a fresh idea and we did not know where any of it was going. Some of the other early seasons were pretty good too.

This season opened ok, with Jack out, and with his daughter. But the Jenny character really seemed to just sink the whole season.

I think without the Russian distraction and with more President Taylor and less Jenny, day 8 would have had the potential to be better than 7, I absolutely loved the first 4 hours.

I hope Taylor carries over into the movies, as do other oldies like Wayne Palmer and Mike Novick.

I'm curious, honest opinion, is season 7 worth it, or would a summery be enough to get going on season 8?

The first 3/4 of Day 7 are among the series best work, the remainder for me fell into the problem I was talking about above.
