24 Fans - Extended Preview

So I'm a big 24 fan - clearly the best television series in a long time as far as I'm concerned. Season 5 starts on January 15th and you may have seen some of the commercials every now and then, but the REAL fans will want to visit the Fox website and click on the extended preview of this season's 24. Jack Bauer for President.

We may revoke your posting ability... Straight up, the rest of the Scaggsville team HATES that show.

Badger didn't hate it - despite our constant mockery. Remember when they had that episode with the cessna and the bomb - that was pretty ridiculous.

This coming from the man who watches "Buffy" for the plot ;)

24 is just great entertainment. Plus you have to admit there is some value in watching terrorists getting their asses kicked by a modern day Rambo.

Actually I did watch Buffy for the plot. Joss Whedon writes very detailed and well thought out story arcs with lots of levels of complexity.

24 is just.... stupid.

I think you should give 24 another chance. It really sounds like it would be right up your alley. I find the writers on 24 to be incredible. There are so many storylines, that reward not only the current viewers but the viewers who have watched the show from the beginning (like myself).

Not only do these writers leave you on the edge of your seat all season long with whatever trouble Jack gets into, but they also allude to a larger plot that has yet to unravel.

And I know you like Buffy - just giving you a hard time.

I don't particularly like the concept (the 24 hour same day deal). It annoys me. I'll give it a chance, but I've watched about 5 episodes and every time, I laugh at the scenarios they are placed in.

Hell at least Buffy, et. al. doesn't pretend to be "real". I will never get over the episode with the Cessna.

24 is a great show because or maybe in spite of its absurdity. I do however concur with Kid that the concept of 24 hours days is played out, and to take it to another level....the lunar calendar is for suckers.
