24 shaped hole...

Some of you who know me well will be surprised by the lack of 24 related material on this blog - let me explain. I'm fairly new to the 24 phenomenon as i only started watching Season 1 in January '06 and finished it within 3 days (that's approx 18 hours of viewing). Over the next 3 months i worked my way through Seasons 2-4 and watched my last episode of Season 4 on 13th April. So that's 96 episodes and 72 hours of viewing in about 3 months. Now some people might feel that is an appauling waste of time but on the contrary i feel it was definitely a worthwhile investment! The show is amazing and Jack Baur is definitely one of my heroes in life! Heard this quote recently:
Jack Baur isn't afraid of the dark, the dark is afraid of him.
For anyone who hasn't ever been introduced to the world of CTU and Jack then i have just purchased Season 1 and would be willing to lend it out to anyone who may be interested and feels they have some time on their hands.

It's been 52 days since my last episode and whilst i no longer have dreams where i am in employed by the CTU and fighting terrorism alongside Jack, i do still have a 24 shaped hole in my life that just can't be filled with anything else TV has to offer. The exciting thing is that there is a strong possibility that i may be getting my hands on most of the episodes from Season 5 tomorrow so if i'm not quite so active on the blog front for the next few days you will understand why!

Hilarious Neil, I too have been catching up on the 24 phenomenen. I didn't go for it first time round ( I rarely do go for things first time round), then after mum died I just needed to occupy my time with something and started. I am on series 3 i think at the mo with the virus- been watching it every day-it's turning into an addiction. I really like Jack-he's the sort of man women go for-sensitive yet determined and strong. Can't decide which lead female I'd most want to be though..
