People of the UK! Clear your sunday evenings for the next goodness knows how many weeks... 24 is back on!

If it's anything like the last series, it'll be bloomin' brilliant.

BBC2, 10pm - be there...

24 is the best thing since sliced bread (except unicycling)

I knicked a copy of the last series on box set off a m8 for a while and it was even better the second time!
Can't wait!

My mom got the first series on DVD free at work. She sold it on ebay and got like $40. I've never seen it, because we left it in the package.

I will have to say otherwise. The best shows must be The Simpsons, Popeye or something along the lines Just for Laughs on the Comedy Network. Cartoons or comedy is where its at. But the History channel is by far the best channel. What about some other people here?

Personally I thought 20 was better. It was a bit lighter, and had more cunning tricks in it, but it wasn't quite as fast paced. And 36 was OK, but it just seemed to cruise along a bit with no real effort. :D

10 minutes to go. Why aren't I camped out in front of the tele yet? Oh yeah, because our kitchen chairs are instruments of torture.

On the contrary... while I enjoy the Simpsons, because there are simply so many of them I don't rush home for them. If I miss some, it doesn't really matter.

24, however, was the first programme in ages I made a conscious effort to not miss.

Four months ago on Tuesday, a big box arrived from unicycle.com -- with a shiny new Semcycle Deluxe -- and I started learning to ride.

I'm just going to buy the DVD boxed set. I still don't know anything about it. But if you say it's good, that's enough for me.

Was it filmed on your side of the pond? Am I going to have to turn on the subtitles?

P.S. - Is Kris in it much? :)

No, it was filmed on your side of the stream, so you should be able to tell what they're saying.

As for unicycles, you've got to look really closely. The cameraman coming into the scene is much easier to spot.*

Yes, the first season of 24 was excellent. I watched it from a DVD set that someone loaned us. You can rent the individual DVD's from Blockbuster Video. Each disk is 4 hours (4 episodes). I don't watch much TV, but my wife and I watched all 24 hours in 10 days. It is hard to turn off. I don't know how it would be watching the broadcast version, I might go crazy waiting for the next show!
I will rent the current season as soon as it comes out. This time I will only allow myself to watch it if I practice idling my unicycle in the living room the whole time. I did that for the entire second half of the Spurs vs. Lakers the other night. My idling benefited greatly (left and right, 1 and 2 foot all coming along) and I am pretty sure it hlelped the Spurs beat the evil Lakers.
