* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The PS2 game, covering between seasons two and three, is a box set in it's own right that begins with Jack raiding a cargo ship before a bomb expert disarms explosives, then a driving scene, then it cuts to Chase, then a shootout and a JackBauerInterrogationTechnique before analysts track down snipers Jack has to stop, so you won't be bored. The music, cinematics and intrigue are of the same quality of the show, it plugs up many plot holes and there are lots of little nods to the fandom, easily as high quality as the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' games.

** In ''Live Another Day'' John Boyega plays a soldier who's framed for being a traitor. One year later in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' he plays an ex-stormtrooper who's attacked by another stormtrooper who declares him a '''[[MemeticMutation TRAITOR]]''' in one of the most popular scenes in the film.

** In Day 7 the doctor treating Jack after he's infected with the Starkwood weapon telling him of an experimental celluar treatment that could potentially save his life. This was immediately after the previous episode where she told him that a hint of a cure didn't even exist.

* ItGetsBetter:
** Many fans and critics were disappointed with the way Season 8 started out, due to the sheer amount of potential villains that ended up being wasted, the general slow pacing of the season, [[TrappedByMountainLions and Dana's infamous subplot with Kevin Wade]]. However, around the time [[spoiler:Kevin Wade was killed]], and [[spoiler:CTU was hit with an EMP]], the season started to get much better, and the sheer amount of [[WhamEpisode Wham Episodes]] and CharacterDevelopment led to a much more well-received second half.
** A fair number of fans were unimpressed by the Salazar arc in Season 3's first half. However, the second half (where Stephen Saunders takes over as the BigBad and Jack is forced to execute Ryan Chappelle) is near-universally regarded as one of the finest run of episodes the show has ever accomplished. In fact, there are a large number of viewers who regard the execution of Chappelle as THE defining moment of the series, even rivaling [[spoiler: Teri's death]].
** ''Live Another Day'' was initially slammed for playing into every cliché the show had built up, to the point where it was completely predictable and there seemed to be no point to bringing the show back. But the last four episodes piled on the shocks and twists, which won over some naysayers.

** Kim Bauer in Season 7. Yes, she's still a damsel in distress, but she quickly shows everyone that she can get out of a sticky situation using nothing but a ''pen''.

** Kim Bauer in Season 7. Yes, she's still a damsel in distress, but she quickly shows everyone that she can get out of a sticky situation using nothing but a ''pen''. She also put herself in harm's way just to uncover the terrorists' plot, and if it hadn't been for her, the FBI never would've found Jack.


Added DiffLines:

** Mike Doyle. When he first showed up, he was a racist, sadistic jerkass and a ReplacementScrappy for Curtis Manning. A few episodes after his appearance, [[TookALevelInKindness he started to lighten up a bit]] and his jerk attitude all but went away. Some viewers were more impressed when he revealed that he was [[HiddenDepths a religious man trying to find "answers"]].

Added DiffLines:

** Rita Brady. She spent all of her screentime whining and bickering with Darren [=McCarthy=]. She ''almost'' got herself rescued when she decided to kill Darren and was about to free Morris, but then put the final nail in her coffin when she kidnapped Morris herself [[{{Greed}} all so she could have the money Fayed intended on giving to Darren]].


Added DiffLines:

** Agent Samuels from Season 6 blatantly tells Sandra Palmer multiple times that she's far too preachy than she needs to be, and that she only gets special treatment because she's Wayne's sister.
** It's impossible to feel sorry for Rita Brady after Fayed coldly shoots her to death, especially after she willingly delivered Morris to him when she could've freed him.


Added DiffLines:

** Ahmed Amar is everything that Behrooz Araz ''should'' have been back in Season 4. Unlike Behrooz, he cared about his cause, he was ''much'' less whiny, and much more willing to take risks despite his incompetence (not to mention he single-handedly killed [[AssholeVictim Stan]]). His storyline could've showed him struggling to believe in his cause or had him gradually rise through Fayed's ranks and become one of his most valuable followers. Instead, he's shot to death by a CTU agent who couldn't keep his trigger finger under control, and then forgotten about.


Added DiffLines:

** Behrooz Araz's storyline. The show tried its damndest to make his subplot sympathetic, but most viewers hated him with a passion and saw him as a typical angty teen who just so happened to be a terrorist relevant to the main plot.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Wangst}}: Behrooz, in spades. He whines about his girlfriend, his parents, his guilt over working for Marwan, and so on and so forth.
