As much as I love 24 it is desperately lacking in strong female characters. If you are a female you are there to be saved, to serve or to be a manipulative disrupter of the peace.
If you watch 24 there will be a few characters that break the mould before breaking into one of the aforementioned roles or gloriously snuffing it. Granted barring the noble embodiment of deus ex machina that is Jack Bauer a number of the male characters are rarely as strong as you’d like but there are still a few that can hold their own alongside the show’s lead.
The series pioneered a number of interesting story dynamics, including the nobody’s safe position currently in play with GoT, but the new could do with one female character with strength who survives long enough to put Jack in his place once in a while!
