Jack Attacks!

I've gotta say- you have to admire the chutzpah of the "24" producers, in turning their hero, Jack Bauer, into a serial killer in the show's final episodes. He's always been a badass, I get that, and cutting the sim card out of that guy's stomach was sort of cool. But on last night's episode, he casually assassinated three or four Secret Service agents, among the dozen or two other people he's wiped out in the last few hours. Not so heroic of him, right?

Not to mention, between "Lost," "24," and "Law & Order," being a long-running series with a protagonist named "Jack" has just been a death knell this year.
