Facing terror charges, ETA’s last boss apologizes for deaths

As ‘Homeland’ ends, what kind of TV hero will fight terrorism’s next form?

For all his scrapes, personal losses and ridiculously close calls, Jack Bauer, the gruff and personality challenged counterterrorism agent played by Kiefer Sutherland on the Fox hit “24,” had it relatively easy compared with Carrie Mathison, the resilient but often deeply compromised (and, as it happened, bipolar) CIA agent played by Claire Danes on Showtime’s “Homeland,” which ended Sunday after an impressively consistent eight-season run. Jack and Carrie came to separately represent the pressing global crises of their times. “24” premiered weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the responding drums of war, moments where it could have been perceived as either wildly inappropriate (it opened with a woman setting off a bomb on an airliner) or topically spot on. Viewers found they were able to project a lot of their anxieties about national security onto the show, which functioned as a one-hour, adrenaline-soaked workout expressed in increasingly contorted (and less plausible) plot points.
