24 creator and self-described "right-wing nutjob" Joel Surnow won't be returning to the show post-writer's strike. There have been all kinds of whispers about liberal navel-gazing replacing torture as the show's untreatable narrative tick--although, if you're like me, liberal navel-gazing is torture and the show should still work.
