This is not a review!
Just general thoughts and feelings on the characters in Season 3 of 24!
|Top: Zachary Quinto as Adam Kaufman in S3 of 24 (2003)|
Bottom: Zachary Quinto as Spock in Star Trek (2009)
Long before Zachary Quinto put on the Vulcan ears, he played CTU Agent Adam Kaufman in S3 of 24; and his character in the beginning is just as aggravating and as annoying as Spock throughout the reboot movies. Later on Adam lightens up considerably and actually becomes a very likable person.
|Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in S3 of 24|
Jack Bauer was awesome, like always! His storyline gets so much darker and grittier, he should be changing his name to Winchester instead. Season 3 also dealt more with Jack's role as a friend and not just as an agent and father, and it was great to see that side of him brought out more.

Kim Bauer and Chase Edmunds
|L-R: Elisha Cuthbert as Kim Bauer and James Badge Dale as Chase Edmunds|
Kimberly Bauer has grown up so much! She is definitely more her own person and I see so much of her father in her as she grows. There is a new independence to Kim and it's great to see Kim make decisions that are based on what's best for others and not for herself.
Oh, and Chase! He's amazing! He's a like a younger Jack Bauer, but much more balanced and that's probably due to being around Jack. Loved him and Kim together!!
(However, I don't think the relationship lasts...)

Tony Almeida and Michelle Dessler
|L-R: Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeaida and Reiko Aylesworth as Michelle Dessler|
Tony Almeida has come a long way from the wussy, crybaby agent he was in Season 1. He finally manned up and got a spine in the end of Season 2. Three years later in Season 3, he's still the director of CTU and manages everything smoothly. Granted, he still makes mistakes, but he is ever so much forgivable now!
MICHELLE DESSLER!!! OMG! She's amazing! I was so skeptical of her in Season 2 and now I feel somewhat guilty for ever doubting her. Michelle is an everyday heroine that every girl/woman should aspire to be. Calm, patient, generous and effortlessly courageous. She can take orders with dignity and no complaints and give orders without sounding like an overcompensating alpha-bitch. Michelle is the type of women Nick Fury would recruit for S.H.I.E.L.D.
|Michelle and Tony|
(I love that you can see Tony's wedding ring)
Tony and Michelle are my new favorite couple! Their relationship in the show is realistic and not sappy or over-romanticized. The have trials that are far from over, but their triumphs are memorable and hopeful.

President David Palmer
|Dennis Haysbert as President David Palmer in S3 of 24|
Still great as ever, but God, did he make some really bad mistakes.
I still love him though : )

Chloe O' Brian
|Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O'Brian in S3 of 24|
I DID NOT LIKE HER!
She was so winy, constantly complaining and just down right annoying.
Just shut-up and do your job, Chloe.
