24

Post by cj » Sat Mar 18, 2006 12:06 am

Is anyone watching series 5 of '24'? We are currently watching series 4 on DVD (again) and can feel myself becoming more obsessed by that than this website. Given that I've posted more than 100 times in 17 days (and that the telephone bill has just arrived - Image gulp!), I may have to go dark for a time ....

Not quite got to season five yet, though I've been catching up with the first four seasons on my train to work.

It's fantastically entertaining, if a little disturbing at times.

I need a new favourite show with the West Wing about to end... :/

I can't bear to watch when they're on the TV (even if I did have Sky). It would just be too much if I missed an episode.

Have watched all four series and am now eagerly awaiting September 26th, when series five comes out on DVD.

Bring on the Autumn.

I don't know that I can wait until September for series 5. Mind you, it gives me something to work towards (and save towards - it's such a huge amount of money to shell out in one go!) and gives us an opportunity to do some much-needed work on the house.

A spoiler warning of some kind would have been useful there. Particularly as the episode in question (presumably) hasn't aired in the UK yet. You may want to go back and edit your post.

I took receipt of series 5 of 24 yesterday. We have now watched the first 8 episodes. It's a real corker! Goodbye, real world, welcome back, Jack, saviour of the universe.

We ordered it from Amazon in March and paid just over £30 for it. But the wait has been interminable. Roll on tonight!

I am now in a state of heightened tension waiting for next year (!!) for season 6 - and trying not to read too much on the internet and spoil it. Season 5 was as good as the others. I just worry that I'm starting to think like a CTU agent and some things weren't as much of a surprise as if I'd never seen the series before. The only thing I didn't like was the James Bond-style spy music that popped up on several occasions.
