    Hey, has anyone been downloading the episodes?
    I have to say that this season's rather awesome.
    Though they're are a few things that were kind of annoying...
    But considering them... I kinda see why...

    the only qualm i have with 24 (and you never read this) is that they make it seem that if Jack wasnt there, the world would end. Hes always making the right decisions, there at the right time and seems to know everyones jobs inside out! Like with Chloes - he goes over and does it for her or tells her to do something.

    I still love it but on that note its abit unrealistic.
    No element of it is particularly realistic in the slightest.

    i think that Jack, as a character, has no credibility. hes like science fiction. hes too nice. he never gets angry.
    Eh? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Jack ALWAYS gets angry :confused:

    Count up the number of times he shouts "Damnit!" or "Son of a *****!" in an episode....

    I just heard on ITV News that 24 could be taken off the television next week. They said they will explain why on the ITV News at 10.30pm tonight.

    I think that is just that Virgin Media (previously NTL/Telewest) have failed to agree terms with Sky for them to show SkyOne, so VirginMedia will no longer show 24 because of no more SkyOne.

    I watched four episodes today, the ones I've missed so far

    But, err, its not that good. I can't put my finger on why, it just seems to be a bit dull.

    Of course the show isn't totally realistic- it'd be boring as hell if it was!

    Thing with 24 (and a lot of TV shows I guess ) is that they are very limited in what they can do - at the start of this and last years series' they pulled off some great shockers but after a while it becomes standard fare...

    That's my main worry- that they start doing things that really effect the direction of the show just because they feel like they constantly have to "wow" viewers.

    That's exactly what I was feeling when season 6 started. I had never felt like that with the previous seasons, so I just thought it was because I was watching it on my laptop (first season I've actually downloaded, rest were DVDs) :p: I mean the opening of season 5 had to be the best ever, but people were saying that season 6's was just as good, if not better. I just didn't find this to be true. Okay, the dracula bit was good, I have to admit, but for the rest I was like thinking *baah not this stuff again*. It just didn't have the spark which the previous seasons had, and for the first time I wasn't over-excited to watch the next ep. I mean, Prison Break is pretty much giving 24 a run for its money *braces for the abuse*.

    To be fair, Prison Break is only on its 2nd series (and each series contains 2 less episodes!).

    Even the almost faultless Scrubs seemed to be tiring in parts by Season 5.
