    I found the first two series were superb, but the show hasn't quite got me as interested since then.

    Lost is great but 24 has much more substance imo. Make sure you watch shows like Sleeper Cell and Prision Break if you like Lost and 24.

    You have made my day !! I thought after 5 that was going to be it. I have season 1 - 4 on dvd, and 5 on xvid.

    When i started watching 24, i didnt take to it. Then about 6 months later I watched it again, and ended up buying a half ounce of skunk, and booking 3 days holiday off work, and watched the whole of season 1.

    24 rocks, buts its like crack, one 40 min fix just aint enough. you need to watch atleast 3 episodes back to back to feel a fraction satisfied.

    Prison Break pwns as well, the concept into that whole series is absolutley genius, the whole escape thing, and hiccup after hiccup. I have Season 1 on dvd now, I was left a llittle gutted at the end, but atleast we know there is definatley room for season 2 to follow on seemlessly

    I've had Prison Break recommended to me a few times!
    The trouble with all these TV series is I never know when they're starting. I don't like watching them half way through a series.

    It's great when you know before hand though, watch the first one and get Sky+ to record all the other episodes, lovely jubbly!

    Here are the series I tend to watch:
    24
    Lost
    Smallville - what can I say, I'm a big Supes fan!
    The Shield - this series is outstanding.
    Sopranos - Arguably the best show on TV.

    Now I just need to find out when Smallville, The Shield and Sopranos start again so I don't miss the new series.
