For those of you with Directv there has been a sweet 24 marathon going on for the past two days and continues tomorrow as well. It's on channel 239 Audience Network with zero commercials. With my knee swelling up to the size of a grapefruit after my hockey game, this has been pure heaven for me. Not only is Jack Bauer the baddest MF'er to ever walk the Earth, this was the most intense tv show i've ever watched. My buddies and I use to have weekly smoke down parties and watch 24, man i miss the good ole days...Just thought i'd share with any other 24 junkies. Oh yeah and Kim Bauer is smoking HOT!
Tv needs the next 24
or 'The Wire' ....
something along those lines
Freaking love that show.
My buddies and I started watching it during season 4 and were hooked instantly. We went after the season was over and watched the first 3 seasons after buying the dvd's in less than 6 days.
Ha! I am watching this now. I have been a 24 fan since downloading season 1 back about 7 years ago and giving it a try. I have seen each season multiple times. Season 2 is on now. IMHO, season 2 of the show is THE best TV season of all time. Simply badass and incredible.

Awesome series. We use to do the same thing OP. I recently started watching them over on Netflix.
Jack is bad ass, Kim is too..
I actually started with season 2. Jack needed to get into a terrorist org under cover and in order to be convincing, he got a prisoner, turned rat, out of prison and cut his head off to bring to the terrorist boss. I was like holy shit, jack doesn't follow any rules and i was hooked.
Haha good i don't feel so lame for saying it now. We would sit and play NBA jams until it came on and then catch the end of monday night football( when it was on mondays). I remember feeling a bit foggy every tuesday or wednesday morning at work. I'd have to agree on season 2 being the best as well. Season 3 is very close though, its not often you see a prison riot Russian roulette scene on prime time TV.
Yeah that episode aired this morning and I watched it. Truly a brutal but badass moment for Jack.
I own all of the dvd's and the two hour movie they made between seasons 6&7. I'm actually started rewatching them a few days ago. I'm on season four right now, and yes it is the best program ever made.
It was the best show on tv for a while. The last really good season was the one about nerve gas. After that it started to get bad(in comparison to the other seasons)
Ah yes! The prison escape scene, complete with Russian Roulette. Another truely epic sequence.
I basically love the first 5 seasons. They were pure perfection. The last 3 seasons were good too, but not quite as perfect. The first half of season 6 was increbible until it turned kind of soap opera-ish, season 7 was very strong other than a few parts, and season 8 was great. The last half of the season was incredible especially after Jack went rouge and went on his revenge killing spree (won't say who dies triggering him to do this in case anyone who hasn't seen it yet reads this haha).
On another note, one Christmas my wife (but girlfriend at the time) got me a t-shirt that says "Jack Bauer for President." I still wear it every now and again.
We named our intramural league teams in College either CTU or Bauer Power lol.
After President Palmer got assasinated it took a different turn. Though that sneaky little weasel president Logan did produce two good seasons. I think i shed a tear with the silent count down after Palmer and tony almedas chick went down.

Season 4 with Habib Marwan was pretty damn good too. Seasons 1-5 were amazing 6-8(7?) were pretty average.
The season Palmer is killed is season 5, which is an INCREDIBLE season. He gets killed at the very beginning of the 1st episode of that season.
Logan is indeed a weasel, he was not only great in season 5, but he was also fantastic in season 8. Suprised he didn't get nominated for an Emmy for Season 8. That ending with him was just....wow.
Loved loved loved the show! When I really want to dork out I try to find someone to discuss/debate who is a bigger badass...Jack Bauer or John Reece of Person of Interest. :)

This too shall pass...
I have that shirt too!
I was always a little bummed they didn't do more with "Mandy" Mia Kirschner's character.
The last few episodes of the final season were epic and my favorite clip was when logan was in the limo when jack was in root gear walking up to him and he looked like he.edu going to shit himself. He screamed... That's jack Bauer. Help me.
The final half of the final season is awesome. My only complaint was that in the series finale Jack isn't in much of the episode it seemed because they knocked him out for a good chunk of the episode. 24 is Jack's show and the final episode should have focused on him more. The ending scene was great though with him and Chloe.
I'm still waiting for the movie but I doubt it ever gets made. They said it was going to happen but it keeps getting pushed back. Maybe in a couple of years but I doubt it...
