Just got series 2 and 3 for only £17.99 each from play.com! See you all in about 48 hours.



They also showed the first two episodes of Series 4 on Sunday on Sky Travel. But they're not showing any more, the bastards. Now I will have to resort to downloading again...

I can't get into it. It drags. Its like a soap opera with extra explosions.

I watched a couple of episodes in the second season, thought it was fantastic, and by the time I'd watched three more and the story hadn't really gone anywhere I lost interest.

Weird that it doesn't seem to move fast enough for me, when fast action and suspense seems to be what they're shooting for.

I usually think the same thing about it. Good, but tends to drag a bit as they never resolve much until the sweeps episodes. This season has been different. Where they are now as opposed to the beginning of the season...so much has been resolved that, in the past, I would have expected to be 20 episodes into the season instead of 7 or 8.

Although this will probably be the point where it slows down.

Much deeper in the overall plot than I thought they'd be. But they have managed to resolve a lot with plenty of options still going. They've struck a nice balance this year I think.

She hasn't been in it at all this year. I miss her titties. Especially when they're running from a cougar in the mountains.

So very, very, VERY stupid. Not sure I liked her any better at CTU though. I mean really? She's protecting the country from terrorists? I think scarecrows on the border would be more effective.

No, she was rubbish at CTU. Even Chloe was more effective. EvenDarlene from Roseanne was! Thinking about it. CTU's recruiters should be shot.

Since she was rescued from those guys in season 1 Kim's basically been a waste of space, except aesthetically in a running/tight white t-shirt sense.

Actually, worse than a waste of space, she's actually put national security in danger 'cause Jack has to spend a fraction of his superhuman powers saving her, admittedly very cute, butt from every dangerous person/animal/situation on the west coast.

Indeed.

Although Chloe showed some chops this year. I say showed, because she got fired. That's how awesome she was, because on the awesome people on the show get fired.

I have fond memories of Kim in the tight shirt being semi-kidnapped in Mountain Man's cabin.

I saw parts of it. Beyond shit. She didn't even get remotely naked which is the only thing that could save it. Even in the parts she was in a thong it was obviously a body double.

In many ways 24 is retarded...

Jack saves the show though. Cut a mans head off in episode 1. Sweet.

It's all about him just wrecking shop and ruling the day. This year he invaded a terrorist stronghold, killed like 12 guys and rescued his grilfriend and her Dept or Defense father. Like 50 marines show up at the end and kill like 10 guys.

Rescue the biggest drug lord ever captured by my country (something I worked 2 years on accomplishing) and kill many guards in the process - oh and shoot my future son in law in the head.

So far it's been great. Some terror kid killed a terror "cleaner" with repeated shovel whacks to the head.

Is Tony still in it? If so does he still walk like a regularly buggered John Wayne?

Hopefully a nice lawbreaking guy will record the episodes off sky and put them out on the net for us skyless people to download (just for testing of course!).

Though the lack of Kim is a bit distressing, looks like they had to cull all the cast to pay for Sutherlands wage demands...

Oh Tony came in at the end of last episode and saved Jack's life while he was pinned down and out of ammo from some other terrorists who were threatening his girlfriend. Of course he killed like 9 of them before that with just a pistol.
