Let's start a discussion with an easy question. What's your favorite season and why?
I'll start it up by saying that I tend to go back and forth between Season 3 and Season 5 as my favorites. The Season 3 fake with Gael made me roll my eyes a bit, but overall, I like the whole Cordilla virus threat and the way it is executed. Chase was a pretty cool new character, we are also introduced to Chloe, there's the whole Chappelle thing, and the whole sequence at the hotel late in the season was thrilling.
Season 5 starts with a bang (literally and figuratively!) and I kinda like how the writers throw everything at you... and it works! Logan was a great, despicable character and the whole American conspiracy was pretty good.
I'd have to go with Season 1 - specifically the first 13 episodes, which I think are really tightly plotted and for me are the best 24 has ever been. The second half of the season isn't as good, but I think the final few episodes of the season manage to pull it back a bit and deliver a cool climax.
What do you think?
