    24 (4 years late, sue me)

    Yeah I started watching 24 for the first time earlier this week. The first series of course.

    My word have I been missing out! It's fantastic! I knew after the first couple of episodes I'd be addicted Gonna watch more in a little while

    It's gripping, well acted, well produced, well scripted, suspenseful stuff

    Better late then never Howard, l got into it when series 2 started because i was crashing at a mates flat and he watched it. Luckily for me he had the first series boxset. You've got catching up to do Howard. Go for a 17.5hour marathon for each series, you know you want to

    Hehe, I remember watching the first series... Borrowed it from a mate, had it back to him within 3 days asking, no begging, for the 2nd!

    Thing is, once you watch one episode you think, OK, I can go to bed now, but then WHAM! They hit you with a cliff hanger and you end up sitting there thinking, just one more episode! Then you see 3am/4am creaping up on you and start falling asleep...

    Except for me I just couldn't go to sleep, and so did end up watching all 24 episodes (of the first season) in a row.

    That's gotta hurt! Still, at least it's only 18hrs in full, not a whole 24hrs!

    That happened to me, I'd never managed to get into it before until I got Sky+ and decided to whack S3 on series link to give it a go. Within about a month I had bought and watched all the dvds

    S2 is my favourite.
