Wow, I did it… It took almost 4 months but I managed to get through all four seasons of 24 on DVD: 24 DVD’s (how ironic), and 96 episodes later I finally finished the final episode last night! What started out as something fun to check out has turned into a TV obsession. I tore through seasons one and two in a matter of weeks, then with Season 3 things go so busy that I took almost two months off from the DVD’s. I still managed to get my 24 fix with season 5 each week, then three weeks ago I picked up where I left off and haven’t looked back.
I find it funny to find that I’m writing about watching a TV show – but this isn’t just any TV show – it’s an intense experience of plot twists, character betrayals, and a ton of suspense. I would recommend 24 to anyone that is looking for an action fix. Before you know it, you’ll be thinking Jack Bauer thoughts yourself! Start with Season 1, Disc 1 and take it from there1 Whatever you do, don’t start watching the show mid-season. It’s simply too complicated, and you’ll probably not enjoy the show all that much.
Now that I’ve finished the DVD’s all I do is wonder "What now?". How am I going to get my 24 fix now? It’s hard enough watching each show a week at a time, but in 5-6 weeks when Season 5 comes to an end does that mean that I’m going to have to wait 7 whole months before my next hit of 24… I knew this day would come, and now it’s here…
