    24 - 2 Hour Movie preview

    Did anyone else see the preview / trailer for the 24 movie that is going to be on Nov. 23rd on Fox? It is supposed to bridge the gap between Season 6 (which seems like forever ago) and Season 7.

    Kind of ironic, my wife and have watched EVERY episode ever, however...we have never watched one live on Fox. We started watching the DVD's during Season 6 (starting with Season 1) and kept going. With the writers strike, the Nov. 23rd event will be my first episode live!

    What a great show.

    Re: 24 - 2 Hour Movie preview

    I love 24, I can't wait. I was so bummed the writer's strike cancelled it last year. I've kept current since day 1, although I usually DVR it and watch it later in the night or on the weekend.

    Re: 24 - 2 Hour Movie preview

    I haven't seen the preview but will definitely be looking for it now.

    I absolutely love 24. Ironically, I started watching it from the first season but lost interest after a few episodes. But I gave it another shot at the beginning of the second season and have loved it ever since.

    I thought season six was weak--but that's measuring by the high standards that the series had set in the previous seasons. I still thought it was better than a lot of the other crap on TV.

    I'm really looking forward to the TV movie and the upcoming season. I hope the year off due to the writers' strike gave them a chance to really take their time and do it right and that they can rebound from a sub-par sixth season.

    Pretty cool. Nice to see it set outside Los Angeles for once.

    I know that the movie is supposed to set up the seventh season, but I wonder if they're sticking with the same story for the season that they had started shooting before the strike last year or if they're going to do something different?

    I would have agreed with you until the sixth season. I think Lost has been better over the past couple of years, but that's just my personal preference.

    EDIT -- Considering the series as wholes, I'd agree that 24 is better than Lost. And way better than Heroes. I just think season 3 of Lost was better than season 6 of 24 (the last seasons to air concurrently).

    Re: 24 - 2 Hour Movie preview

    I've read they're trying to do a few new things so it's not always "Jack saves USA from terrorist" type plot. There will be no CTU in season 7 either. Even though season 6 wasn't as good as 1-5, I'm hoping 7 is back on par.

    I agree with brianhos, it is a show without peers.

    Last season was so unbelievably horrible . . . I hope they improved a lot for the movie and season 7.

    This is one show I've never been able to get into. Maybe I should give it another chance.

    Re: 24 - 2 Hour Movie preview

    As much as it sucked that the writer's strike canceled the last season of 24, in the end maybe it was the best thing to ever happen to the show. It gave the writers an opportunity to sit down and find out what all went wrong with the show/got stale in the show. At first I was a little skeptical about not having CTU in the mix, but then I realized that the show was never about CTU, CTU was always just Bauer's tool to thwart the terrorists. Just means Bauer's going to have a new "tool" this season.

    If you start watching it on DVD you won't be able to stop. It is hard to get into while it is on TV. I started with season 1 and was through season 5 in a month.
