24 Season 5:1-6




Ms K and Kenyanmusings each wanted a dildo for Christmas I suggest they get Season 5 of 24! Wow wowie you won’t see Palmers assassination coming! (Bet you did not see that spoiler coming either!) Damn-that’s the stuff good TV is made out of! In a world where almost every TV idea has been exhausted from Medical dramas to Legal dramas to Police dramas, this is an area that remains fresh and totally dominated by 24.


I have watched loads and loads of TV and honestly nothing compares to 24. No series has the intense suspense packed into it like 24 does. No series has every single episode as gripping as the last or better. IT gets better and better as it progresses without ever letting go. Your heart beats rapidly , blood pressure rises, pupils dilate, breathing becomes difficult…I keep saying if you are on heart medication-you are better off smoking and eating cholesterol laden meat…but stay clear off of 24.

I’m I saying it’s the best drama out there? Maybe. You can’t beat HBO’s drama’s like Rome/Oz/Wire/Soprano’s…even Lost holds it’s own and sometimes Alias comes close. But 24 is on a sweet league of its own from its uniqueness in style to its fast pace heck to its ring tones. Not to mention I’m always there “The following takes place between 9:00 am and 10:00 am” of course in season one I’d add “...on the day of the Carlifornia Presidential Primary!” I used to enter movie chat rooms on Yahoo with this line “My name is Jack Bauer and today is the longest day of my life!” and it would work wonders.

Time strapped that show wastes no time with character building you just get straight to the point. Terrorists are on the loose…we have only one day let’s get to it. Rarely do you have mushy mushy scenes. Just when you think you have things figured out the story turns and keeps turning. Alias is fast paced but the story line remains the same, unlike here where one thing leads to another and yet another. However, in season 5 it really has a different twist…not to mention the have really woven a nice story explaining how Jack returns.

Best thing on TV I will say. Totally addictive! Fantastic and Perfect! If you have never watched it, then you must not have any sense or friends in your life to influence you into such a couch tato worthwhile lesson.

After season 5, they are making 24 the Movie. As eager as I am, I’m a bit skeptical and actually worried that a movie could be the only thing that destroys the series. Honestly they should stick to T.V…but we shall be there and here to review it!

PS. I am one of those that have never watched one episode of it. I think if you didnt catch the first episode of the first season you missed the {fanatic} bus. One day i'll just sit with popcorn and blitz through all the seasons on DVD :)

i guess u just solved my very minor, very trivial problem:)

my TV buddy and I only have one more DVD of "sex and the city" to watch and we'll be done with all the episodes. we were thinking of picking up a different show to start watching from scratch. we just might end up with 24, i've heard a lot of people praise it even though i've never watched a single episode. thanks for the idea (yes, i do realize the post wasn't for me specifically!...)
