24 ways 24 screwed up this season

I thought this might be fun. Let's start a laundry list of 24 things wrong with 24 this season. Nitpickers feel free to add to the list.

1. Keeping the show in Los Angeles
2. Hiring DB Woodside as the President.

The whole soap opera "evil twin" brother and bad dad deserves the #1 spot. Can't give a mark against not casting Donald Sutherland since the role of Daddy Bauer ended up so asinine anyway.
