    T.V. Addict?

    Going offline now, "24" is about to start.

    Any other "24" addicts out there?

    Absolutely! But I've got the recorder on because I'm also a March Madness fanatic ...

    OMG, you have NO IDEA.... LOL Poor Jack.

    I started watching when Season 3 was in the middle of airing. AE cable station started showing 24 "from the beginning" on Monday mornings. Perfect!!! started watching and was hooked. In Season 5, my hubby sat down with me one night to watch, hello, instantly hooked. So my SIL has EVERY season on DVD, and she loaned us the first 5 which we watched during the summer getting hubby and I all caught up on any missed episodes. WE were totally addicted. "Just one more episode..." staying up till sometimes early morning hours cause we couldn't turn it off....

    I'll admit a few frustrations with the writers this year...bringing people back from the dead, not that I don't love having Tony back, questionable timeframes for events, and inconsistencies with some characters actions, doing things they would NEVER do.... reminding me of being a bit soap opera-ey at times.... but I still love it! I hope they haven't "jumped the shark" this year....

    P.S. we're also addicted to LOST

    Talk about jumping the shark..LOST has done it the end of last year and this year as well. Let's take an elevator down and spin the wheel of fortune, and move the island! Let's break the wheel of fortune, and go skipping like a rock through time!

    But I'm pityful, and still watch it every week... My brain's about mushy enough for the Hulu aliens.

    Ya think? I'm not there yet, as far as thinking they've jumped the shark. It's just still so confusing and their not giving enough info. It's exactly like the conversation between Miles and Hurley....everyone's kinda like "huh?"

    They better git to 'xplanin.

    I wanted to get into 24, but I knew I would get hopelessly addicted. I figured between that and football, I better stick with football. But I may get the DVD's.....

    I hope it's just a ploy.

    I chuckled when you mentioned Kim. As soon as my wife heard that Kim was heading in, she said, "Great. I wonder what she's going to screw up this time?". I don't guess she's a Kim fan.

    He killed larry with his bare hands. I don't really see how it could be a ploy, but I sure hope you're right. We've always been Tony fans, and were happy to see him "back from the dead" even though they rewrote history to get him there.

    Yeah, he's got some "splainin" to do. I'm probably imagining this, but it seemed to me he looked at the wound pretty carefully first, so my prediction is he'll say, "Larry was dying and there was nothing I could do, so I took the only chance I had to get back on the inside with the bad guys. It was our only option."

    My wife thinks I'm crazy, too, but I still have hope.

    My SIL thinks Larry's not really dead and this is all part of a plan and that Tony is still a good guy.

    Aren't we all pathetic....

    Re: T.V. Addict?

    Yeah, that thought crossed my mind, too, but I figured since Jack already "killed" (and buried!) an FBI agent earlier this season, that they wouldn't use that one again. We'll see ...
