Please ignore part of my other comment. I watched this online and stopped it to write the comment about the Presidential Forensics. Turns out the President is still alive.
So how does that happen? What's the story there? How does the government explain that there's no body to examine?
It's still a ludicrous storyline that implodes on itself due to the implausibility of anything like that happening.
Shows like 24 are an example of STELLAR, believable writing with real drama and intrigue.
I liked this show in the beginning.
But I'm glad its ending.
The caliber of the writing; over dramatizations, mushy story lines, implausible situations - it's not supposed to be magical where people come back from flat lining after 20 minutes because they're now being hugged instead of all of the other life saving techniques that didn't have any effect.
I could list 100 more things that have been so bogus it's not funny, but the common denominator is that most of the people watching are part of the dumbed down generation from a crappy national school system.
I like compelling shows that have some sense of real drama and suspense. This show is always over the top in a bad way, kind of like the new Iron Man 4 movie.
Is the writing on this show ever going improve?
This last season has been so painful. I'm invested in the show (more for the eye candy than anything else) so I watch it.
Forensics! Ever hear of them? Aren't there enough CSI's and other shows that teach us this stuff?
It would only take a few seconds for a mediocre (actually RANK AMATEUR) Forensics specialist to clean Nikita of the Presidential Assassination!
All they had to do was examine the President! Powder burns on her hands, proximity of the weapon. Where the body was, where the weapon was.
It's just plain stupid how the writers of this show mangle everything. And lets not forget the touching scene where Michael (after flat lining for more than 20 minutes and resisting two or more shots of adrenalin, chest massage, repeated paddle shocks and breathing bag) suddenly awakens with not stimulus other than Nikita's tears and hugs to a sobbing bunch of friends.
I simply hate over the top mushy story segments.
