Since doing my review of 24: Season One, many of you have asked me to keep you up-to-date on how I have been progressing through the set. I started a new thread here to draw attention to the fact that I finally finished Season One last evening. I really am proud of myself for getting through this set so fast. Most of the episodes I watched on my portable DVD player during my plane ride to and from Los Angeles last week. I also went back up to my hotel early a few nights, locking myself in the room, while lying in bed watching a few more episodes. It's sort of miraculous how addictive this series became for me. I have never been addicted to any television show from watching a single episode. As my review of 24 indicated, it's very easy to get hooked within the first 30 minutes of the show. The only problem with 24 is that it really became too preposterous at times. It's as if the writers really stretched themselves to find some unusual predicaments for its characters. Still, the show remained so riveting, it was easy for audiences to accept most of what was being thrown at them. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the show did not whimp out in its final 10 minutes. Having now watched the alternate ending with commentary, I can truly appreciate what the show's producers were trying to do. Even in the end, the show remained true to its ability to give us the unexpected. After all, the thing I enjoyed most about 24 was the fact that it wasn't predictable. Every episode seemed to have a new twist. So, here I am, a full-fledged 24 fan. Suffice to say, I'll be watching the second season live this year, and perhaps joining you guys in weekly conversation in the television area.
