I'm hooked

I think I must have been the last person on earth to have never seen a single episode of 24... But that all changed a couple of months ago when I finally got my hands on season 1 (I didn't start watching until a couple of weeks ago...I was too busy with the World Cup before that). And now that I am halfway through the season, I am hooked! I stayed up till 3AM last night watching some episodes...needless to say, I felt like I had just gotten hit by a bus when I woke up this morning.

It's really a good show, well acted and well written. And I've decided that if I can't be a female version of Jack Bauer, I want to at least be working somewhere at CTU...

Imagine being able to dig up information about anyone and everyone, and finding out about their whole lives... just like that...I wouldn't feel the need to buy another celebrity gossip magazine ever again!

I think I'll take it easy tonight. No 24 for me. Just a good night's sleep hopefully.

Previously on 24:
I got to Montreal in August 2002, 3 days before they were doing a rerun of the first three episodes of series 2, and I was forced to locate and watch the first series in 2 days. Having to wait week on week for series two was a killer. Ever since, I have got the whole series and overdosed across a week, with a finale on the weekend. I'm getting the shakes, as Im just about to start series 5! They're all good, but series 1 and 2 are the best. I even got my wife addicted to the point that she has the ring tone on her mobile. We're proper fanatical!! Oh to be in your situation, knowing that there are so many more episodes to watch! Enjoy, I'm envious.

I love 24 amazing series. I got bozed DVD set and there are behind the scene clips that show you how much attention to detail is required to produce something like this...amazing.

BTW, have you checked out Lost? Another amazing series...

Add me to the growing list of people that have never seen 24 too!! Must put it on my 'to do' list :)

Im a lost addict too. And I dont much watch anything else! Lost is good, and in a weird sense. Funny that the main characters in both are called Jack. Maybe that is the secret to their successes. No ring tone for Lost though. heh.

I love Lost! I had actually written about it a while ago in this post:

I can't wait for season 3 to begin! Season 2 had started on a slow note then it picked up again towards the end.

Hubs & I also became 24 addicts............series 1 & 2 were the best & 3 was average...........but by the end of series 3 I just got tired of Jack sighing all the time. I think maybe we watched too much too soon, but after we get the 1st series of Lost, we'll maybe relent & get 4 & 5 of 24 :-)
