Has fox said if 24 be having an all day marathon on fx? I have seen every episode up until 8pm, but missed all the rest.

I did not want to search any other 24 threads, for fear of reading any spoilers.

I think someone in the other thread said they won't be having any reruns.

Maybe they won't rerun them on a week-to-week basis through the summer but will do a weekend FX marathon or something. Two days, 12 hours each would work, or start it at midnight and go true real-time for 24 hours. Some crazy people may try to stay up and watch the whole thing.

According to Fox, there will not be repeats "anytime soon".

Well I'm not gonna give up on this idea yet. I guess I can see their reasoning about not repeating it on FOX because they want to promote it as a special event.

But I think there could be no better way to make a special event of it than to have a 24 hour MARATHON on FX!

Maybe they can do it right before the second season premiere! Who's in charge over there anyway?

Came across this in my internet travels:

On Labor Day Weekend, FX will air the entire 24 hours of the Fox series 24, beginning on Saturday August 31 at midnight and concluding 24 hours later. And be sure to mark your calendars - 24 returns to the Fox schedule with the season opening on October 29.

Well, maybe they took our suggestions to heart. I doubt I'll try to watch the marathon though (especially since I have the DVD on order).

The article also implies that they won't be running 24 on FX each week next season like they did before. If they don't that's too bad because a couple of times that's how I was able to catch it and not miss an episode.

Ha, I think I'll actually try and catch most of the marathon. I watched about 8-10 of the episodes when it first aird and thought it was a good show. Will be cool to see the whole thing in "real time".

I'm going to have to free up a whole day.

What's going to be cool is looking outside and watching the sun go down as it goes down in the show. It would help if I lived in Southern California, but oh well.

I just received this little blurb about the marathon. This info comes from "Cynthia Turner's Cynopsis" which provides daily information on the entertainment industry.

Correction: Contrary to the item here yesterday, FX's "24" marathon on Labor Day will actually air on Labor Day, not on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. Hour #1 kicks off latenight on Sunday, September 1 at 12m, ending 24 hours later, latenight on Labor Day at 12m.

That sucks. That means that people WORK the day after. Who the hell came up with that stupid idea? Sunday would have been a much better day to do it. Idiots.

Sounds like a perfect use for a TiVo of sufficient capacity to hold the entire thing. But then you might as well get the DVD.

I highly recommend not watching the marathon in "24-time" if you haven't seen the series before. I saw the first 12 episodes on Tuesday night's like most folks, and then left the US in the winter and anxiously awaited a friend of mine to send me tapes as he recorded them all for his own "24-time" marathon over Memorial Day weekend.
When I got the tapes, I re-watched the first episode, and then the last I'd seen (12pm-1pm), and then watched three or four a day for the next few days until it finished. The tension of each episode's cliffhangers being resolved minutes later, rather than a week later, just didn't work.
24 is being broadcast on Swedish TV this fall, around the time of the DVD. I'll re-watch it then, and then decide whether the DVD is re-watchable, and thus worth purchasing.
