    24 Season 1 is out on DVD!

    But that's old news. I never even watched the first season. Well, I mean I saw like twenty minutes of episode 8, but I hadn't seen anything before it so I never watched any more of it.

    Actually I just wanted an excuse to talk about the season premiere of Season 2. (And season 2 in general as it unfolds) Are they always commercial free? That'd be a cool gimmick to have a different sponsor every week so you could actually have a WHOLE hour.

    Anyway, who watched it? Discuss.

    welcome to the best show on TV.

    season one is outstanding. well worth the $45 bucks.

    as for commercials, no they have not been commercial free in the past, and i doubt that will happen again. i guess you missed the 10 minute ford commercials at the beginning and end of the show?

    season two looks to be getting off to a good start. aside from the obvious bad guys, i think i have a good idea who the "mole" will be this season. but after nina was discovered to be a spy last season, who knows how this will turn out.

    i still can't figure why jack(keifer)shot that FBI witness though.

    Jack shot the witness to get back in the good graces of the guy he sent away and is now trying to reinitiate contact with so he can find out the guy's connection with Second Wave. Look! One episode and I'm already a pro.

    Want more? I'll bet the daughter is going to "kidnap" the little girl to keep her away from the dad and Keifer (and the guys he sent to escort her out of the city) is going to be frantically trying to reach her for the next 24 hours.

    Still more? The president's aide is hiding something. He is with holding information so the bomb goes off and the President and the Joint chiefs will be forced to decimate the Prime Minister's vague middle east country because that's the aide's ultimate goal. Eventually, the Prez will figure it out in the eleventh hour (and by 11th I mean more like 22nd) and force the guy to give up the crucial info that will send Jack to the right place just in time.

    Just made it through the season one dvd box, and I love the show. There is an extremely high suspension of disbelief required, but the show is an incredible ride. 11:59PM is one of the great TV moments.

    I stand beside Derek..it's the best show on TV. I hope the second season is as good if not better then the first. The only thing I didnt like was that they killed Jack's wife. It wasnt a bad story line I just liked her personally.....and the twist with Nina??? Whoa that was a nasty lil' curve ball. I cant wait to see what happens next! Does anyone know how much time has pasted in the story line from the end of season one and the beginning of season two??? I cant remember if anyone hit on that on not.

    JM Silas,

    The second season is supposed to take place a little over a year from season one. As for Jack's wife, the DVD includes an alternate happy ending, and it just does not have the impact that the actual ending had. I agree though, the reason why the ending is great is because she is a likeable character.

    i read in a review of season 2 that 16 months have passed since the death of jacks wife. in the show, it was hinted at by jack that he hasn't worked at CTU for over a year.

    epsiode 2 on tuesday night was good. i was shocked to find out that after shooting the FBI witness, jack cut his head off and put it in a bag.

    i'm wondering if kim's crazy employeer(the little girl's dad) is going to be tied into the terrorist plot. if so, it may be a bit much.

    Drat. I missed episode 2. Already I'm screwing this season up. This is harder than I thought.

    E.P.,

    they may re-run it on monday night on fox as they re-ran the first episode. or check fox's FX cable station. last season, they re-played all the episodes on FX.

    here is what you missed,

    jack infiltrated his old "gang" by giving them the head of the informant that was going to testify against his old "boss".

    kim and the little girl she baby-sits fled the house after the girl's dad beat them and her mom, and kim and the girl got separated and now the girl is missing.

    the president detained a journalist who was going to leak the planned terrorist attack.

    the future sister-in-law of the arab guy is investigating her sister's fiance to see if he has terrorist ties.

    and the preview for next weeks episode showed jack's old "gang" trying to blow up CTU.
