The end of the day has finally come for the television series 24. Jack Bauer and and his fellow super spais will no longer keep America on the edge of their couches. This season is the series last. But, Bauer will not die, nor will he live happily ever after. At least on the small screen: Plans for a 24 movie are in the works, condensing a full day into two hours.

Along with its revolutionary format 24 was prescient in its plot lines: A black president and extreme torture come to mind.

I really liked 24. But it always raised questions for me, like when did obviously physically fit Bauer go to the gym or  practice his marksmanship–and or even more practically, when did he pee or eat, and what drugs did he take to stay awake?
