Catching up with Jack

Well last spring I finally got hooked on 24. So much so that I had to find out what happened the previous 4 years. Thanks to a friend at work and to the public library I have been able to catch up on them with DVD's and video tapes. Who knew Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer was North Americas answer to James Bond? The only probelm I have with the show is that ion the last episodes of each season it ends in cliff hangers that get resolved off screen. For example season two had the terror threat resolved but a new one came up when the President shook hands with a terriost who infected him with a deadly virus. At the beginning of season 3 that has already been taken care of and the President is running for re-election when a drug lord threatens to release a virus in L.A. unless his brother is released from prison. How did they take care of the terriost who infected the President? Why start a new story when you really had not finished the first one? Other then that the series is very well done. I can't wait till season 6.
