    Well what do you think?!?
    I found it very predictable (similar to the other seasons)

    Have they released the episodes/ are there any to watch ahead of the programmes aired on Sky1?

    Waiting till the whole season has been broadcast... Watching 1 episode a week is absolutely no way to watch 24.

    I love 24, have done since the beginning and from my experience, you will think it is predictable in the first couple of episodes and then they will hit you with something completely unexpected. Its gonna be 24 episodes long, obviously, you have no idea what is going to happen really. Yeah, there were some moments in last nights episodes which I predicted but that doesn't mean it isn't going to get better. Plus, this is series 8! Its pretty impossible for it to live up to the standards of awesomeness set by series 1 and 3! Either way, its still my favourite show and seeing as how this is likely to be the last series I intend to enjoy it.

    I wasn't impressed with the first 2 episodes to be honest. OK it always takes a while to get things going, but it was all very predictable. I'm sure it'll change though...

    Though I am not vibing this new look CTU in New York,they should bring back the old school CTU team.

    You're right that being able to watch all the episodes together is the best way, but that would mean waiting ~6 months. I don't think that I could resist it for that long! :o:

    I'm definitely starting to get back into it now, though did anyone really think that Renee would get shot? We've seen that one before... :rolleyes:

    Which is why watching only one episode a week isn't too bad! :p:

    I still consider a new series of 24 an event, and it remains one of my favourite shows. Admittedly, that could because I loved the format from the start and so am biased towards following any new series, but Jack remains a great character IMO and I've got quite a lot invested in following him as a character. :yep:

    the first section of 6-7 episodes are normally good. Its approx 7-20 that are a bit ****, then it normally picks up again toward the end

    They havent had a story that is worthy of 24 hours yet. most of them could (and are) done and dusted by about 15 episodes generally and then a new arc starts.

    I'd probably have to agree with you there, though the last season (season 7) came very close IMO, but lost its way a bit at the end...

    Tony's changing of loyalty just happened a couple of times too many to be credible.

    The first season could well have managed it all the way, if they'd planned for 24 episodes from the beginning. :rolleyes:

    My thoughts exactly

    I didn't find Episode 5 that interesting, losing my interest already.

    Newest US epsidoes - 10pm-11pm

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Was getting a little bored after the first half an hour. The undercover op was dragging on and the Dana's crazy boyfriend thing is boring as hell.

    But then Renee went ape **** and we are back to the 24 we know!

    She stabs Vladamir about 10 times, then sticks Jack. Then Jack pulls off throwing knives kill ala-Goldeneye 64! AWESOME!

    Little twist at the end is cool too. I love how Jack can just shake off a wound like that totally easily :rofl:

    Look forward to next week. Things may be moving a little faster now.

    8-9pm was boring as hell I'm really not enjoying this season so far - the plot (while being quite topical) just isn't gripping enough.

    Besides one of the best Bauer kills of all time the episode was pretty damn boring, I don't care about Dana in the slightest, the Presidential storyline is even more boring than usual and even the main storyline is plodding along at a snails pace,
