Total Addiction

Our all time favourite TV show returns to Fox tonight - 24, after a long hiatus due to the writers strike.

It seems there's no inbetween with this show, you either watch it and love it, or you just don't get it. We have always both been in the first group, even when we were watching on either side of the Atlantic! But then we couldn't discuss it at all, as the Hubster was always a few weeks ahead.

He'd just take great pleasure in dropping comments like " you won't believe what's going to happen next" or "it's better than ever" into our conversations, it was torture. But now we get to watch it together and speculate on where the story might go next, one of the great pleasures of being a fan of this unpredictable and sometimes shocking show.

There's not much that gets between us and watching 24. The only problem I have with my sorority is we meet on Monday nights and I hate missing it. And if you call during the hour it's on, well you can expect our ansaphone to pickup!

So are any of you fans of Jack Bauer?

Enjoy the Bauermeister. I'll not be joining you - I'm in the other camp.

Ahhh . the fastest paced and worst written show on TV returns .. and Husband is SO excited. I adored this show the first season .. I was so hooked I got anxiety attacks during commercial breaks so I insisted we record and play it back .. and then the season ended and I looked forward to season 2 .. and for some reason I started LISTENING to the dialogue and I couldnt believe what I heard .. anyway suffice it to say even All My Children is better written .. and let me tell you Husband points out how poorly that is written AND acted .. its a love fest here on Husband's part .. he has a man crush on Bauer ..

Me .. not so much

Jack Bauer is my hero!!!! I am so glad the Open House the realtor set up isn't for tonight or we would have to move it-just kidding! But I do love this show and so does my husband. Enjoy!!

My husband thinks he is Jack Bauer. He's special.

I've never seen it but I know people who are as hooked on it as you are. And rest assured, I won't call then! lol

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Stuart, my mistake - 'Redemption' is a special and then Season 7 starts soon

I heard a rumour Robert Carlyle was to appear on an episode.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Melissa - he did tonight, but sadly he was a casualty of war!

A fellow 24 fan!

Last night was actually the first 'live' episode I ever saw. You see, I caught the first season a year or two after it originally aired, and my friends and I have been having '24 Nights' to catch up ever since. (We used to binge and watch one season over just one day - breaks to eat and sleep only! We then moved on to 4 hours at a time every few days. We took a few months break between seasons). We finished season 6 just last week (last night was our deadline). I'm so excited to finally be caught up with the rest of the world :)

You are very right - people either love it or they just don't understand the appeal. I've loved this from day 1, hour 1. It is good in so many ways!
