    I haven't watched that show in ages. It's just silly and to me, unwatchable.

    Wow, that show is still going? I watched the first three or four seasons (up until the one where Jack faked his death and moved to Canada at the end of the season finale). I ended up not watching TV at all anymore after that season, but even so, I wasn't going to watch 24 the next season. It was getting a bit too ridiculous, so I figured I'd bow out before it went too far downhill.

    It's pretty addictive, especially if you find a bad day outside and start watching the DVDs...

    I bought the first two seasons on DVD a few months ago. I thought I'd watch one episode a night for a while, but I ended up watching the entire first season over a three day weekend. I couldn't stop.

    The second season is still in the shrinkwrap. I'm afraid of it...

    Jason Mews watched the entire series on DVD almost non stop, taking 6 hours to sleep, then getting back to it. At the time he was living in Kevin Smith's basement.

    That concludes my contribution of utterly useless knowledge for today.

    +1, I enjoyed first season, but it the concept was a one-time thing. It was silly after that to me.

    I'd rather watch Family Guy or The Simpsons. (The only TV shows I watch besides once in a while BBC news)

    Oh, it's TOTALLY over the top. Silly. Ridiculous. Unbelievable. Mindless. Violent. Whatever, pick your own adjective. I look forward to every January.

    I don't like watching right wing propaganda like 24.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Yes, that show is clearly a concoction of Dick Cheney, Rove, and Blackwater

    Yeah, I'll end up watching it even though it's the same every season. At least it's not prison break.

    I'm waiting for Battlestar Galactica to start back up, although last season was terrible.

    Dexter starts at the end of the month.

    All these shows are great to watch while on the trainer.

    Be afraid... be very afraid. I first became hooked on 24 when Fox was airing all of season 2 in one day. I happened to be channel surfing at different times of the day, and I stumbled across two of the more dramatic points of that season. I've been hooked since. Yes, some seasons have been better than others. Season 2 was one of the best, in my opinion, but this past season wasn't so great. I still go with the flow and enjoy it. Aside from the news, 24 and road cycling are the only two TV programs that I watch regularly, so I don't feel bad about that one "guilty pleasure". At least it gives me something to look forward to on Mondays!
