Looking back in hindsight, a Chloe & Morris spin off with a comedic touch could have worked. A synopsis would be: they now hold higher decision making positions at a government agency (e.g. CIA, FBI, CTU, etc...), clash often, but ultimately find common ground to complete the mission. Of course this would have happened before Chloe turned fugitive and before Morris died.

Kate Morgan is also set up to have her own mission. Being in the CIA also gives it an international spin. The show could even start with her looking for Jack in Russia. As usual, Jack has intel that can help the US avoid a disaster. Kate is sent in covertly to get him back. Or...perhaps to give the show a less trivial plot, Kate altruistically acts on her own, determined to bring Jack back after feeling responsible for Audrey's death. She's going to get him back "just because she has to" if it's the last thing she does.

Do you see any spin offs that could have happened or you think still can happen? (besides the prequel in the works, which isn't really a spin off)

I mean, Tony, Michelle, Chloe, Logan, Palmer, Mike Novick, Cheng Zhi, Audrey, Bill Buchanan, Aaron Pierce.

Wow, even if some of them were still too fresh like Bill and Charles Logan, but still, they learned of their mistake at the start of the season of having all boring and new characters and fixed it.

I think this is one of the main reasons why season 5 was the best, they used the classic characters plus the best new additions.

I have read a few of the declassified novels, namely Cat's Claw, Trojan Horse, and (my favorite) Veto Power. My question is which novels are worth picking up, and which should I avoid?

When Corey Hawkins was cast for Legacy a lot of people knew how solid he was in Straight Outta Compton, but I saw his small but pivotal role in BlacKkKlansman last week and he was absolutely fantastic in his 5< minute scene, it really makes you wonder why he wasn't given more dramatic scenes to work with on Legacy. I think this guy has a really big future ahead of him, he's racked up two very impressive performances already while also having big blockbusters like Kong Skull Island and Non-Stop under his belt. It makes Legacy look like an even bigger wasted opportunity for the show than it already appeared at the time.

The film itself was great too and definitely worth checking out.

I know they are doing a prequel, but they could have present day scenes maybe? Seems like the perfect time.

Hi I was having an argument with someone about how terrorism is portrayed in 24. They were arguing that while real terrorism is full of idiots doing stupid things, in media we always portray terrorists as really sophisticated. Do you think that's true? Any examples?

When the president candidate’s wife was talking about getting some information from the past against the other person,he considers that blackmail when she’s literally doing the same thing to him. When it comes to his own family he has this “get clean” attitude but if he brings someone else’s past that’s considered blackmail to him. Wtf I’m starting to hope he gets assassinated for being so close minded.

That's all. It's like a slower, less intense 24. Some parts are quite a bit slower, but it gets going after a few episodes in, and there's a lot that reminds me of 24. I just finished episode 7. None of it is wall-to-wall action, but there's good drama and suspense and some good action here and there. The further in it gets, the more 24-ish it's becoming.

If you want to know my tastes, I loved seasons 1-8, didn't much care for Redemption, liked Live Another Day, and gave up on Legacy about 3 or 4 episodes in.

In the final episode, his helicopter was taking off literally minutes before a nuclear warhead was about to hit LA. I feel like he wouldn't have got very far and would've got Modern Warfared out of the sky.

Just watched s5e1 and they killed off Palmer, as much as I liked his character I think it was time he got off the show but what I didn't like was how easily (or should I day accidentally) the killer was caught and killed in a single episode. I thought he was gonna be a side villain that would give Bauer a challenge.

Oh and I was never a fan of keeler nor the Logan administration, I hope there is a good president in later seasons, that's all.

Chloe always had Jack's back, even if it cost her her job, her family, or her freedom. She constantly referred to Jack as "my friend" and seemed emotionally attached to him.

However, prior to maybe Season 8, I never thought Jack showed any interest or regard for Chloe beyond her helping him with his missions. When we first were introduced to Chloe in Season 3 working for Jack, he didn't seem to be the easiest boss. Throughout the seasons, whenever Chloe tried to be personal with him, he would just brush her off or give a very cursory response. And before the end of Season 9 LAD, he never did anything for Chloe unless it somehow also served his agenda (I was actually disappointed to learn that his breaking Chloe out of CIA custody in 9x01 was just so that he could he get to Yates).

There were other colleagues who were also very loyal to Jack (i.e. Bill, Tony), but his bonds with them felt more like they went beyond the professional.

Don't get me wrong, I am grateful that Jack had Chloe behind him and I did love their dynamic. And their relationship did progress a bit in Seasons 8 and 9. It's just that the degree of Chloe's loyalty in proportion to their minimal level of personal relationship over the years always puzzled me.

If you were Chloe, would you have been as loyal as she was to Jack?

...for getting me into 24.

I watched Designated Survivor due to my interest in the original concept. I really liked the show, particularly Kiefer Sutherland's performance as President Kirkman. When I would go onto message forums/boards for DS, so many comments would reference 24 and/or Jack Bauer, to the point where it got me curious and wondering if I should give the 24 series a go.

I'm so glad I did. And I'm also so glad that I watched the series now in 2018 than during 24's original run. I can't imagine having had to wait a week between episodes, months between seasons (or that year during the writer's strike between Seasons 6-7) and then that extra four years to get to Season 9.

Is there anyone else who watched Designated Survivor first before watching 24?

Reading through a lot of the 24 posts here on Reddit so far, I've seen a lot of references to Kate Morgan from LAD as being the "female Jack Bauer," but not so much Renee Walker.

I like both characters very much (admittedly, I like Renee a bit more)...just wondering what makes people say Kate over Renee?
