Default New season of 24..

Is anybody watching 24? I thought last season sucked. I hope they can do better this year. So far so good.

One of my favorite actors, Robert Carlyle is in this episode. It should be a good show.

It will be hard pressed to be funnier than this

Why does FOX have to preempt the "animated domination" lineup to show 24, though (instead of just airing it on its regular night)? It seems most Sundays that I'm off, the Simpsons is bumped for one of FOX's gimmicks.

Ugh. I watched part of one episode the first season, and though, "WTH is going on?" Just seemed a bit ridiculous to me. For a show that is supposed to make you believe what they are doing...

What exactly was so hard to figure out? Jack Bauer is on the run from the US government because of his prior indiscretions. He ends up at a school in Africa that's run by an old special forces friend. The rebel contingent in that country is staging a coup and therefore goes out and "recruits" (kidnaps) children to be soldiers. So Jack helps the kids reach the embassy and get to safety. None of this is outside the realm of reality, as far as 24's "reality" goes, and it's certainly easier to swallow than, say, Jack Bauer taking a un-disarmable nuke in a single prop cessna and dropping it in the desert.

On the list of far-fetched 24 plots, this one is relatively low on the list. Even the "complicated" parts (namely, that an American company is covertly funding the rebels) are fairly easy to swallow.

I don't know anything about this season. I'm talking about the first season, when I decided I couldn't watch it for it's lameness. Too much "yeah, right..." for me, in a show that is supposed to be real.

I Swore I had NO TIME for another addictive tv show. I had a hard enough time breaking my 24 habit last year. I DO NOT need to start watching it again!


Alas.....I was 10 minutes in before I realized it, and now I'm stuck!
