    24...TONIGHT!

    Just over 10 hours until the 24 movie tonight! Anyone else really excited? Not much good get me to tune away from football this time of year but this is one exception.

    The funny thing is, my wife and I got into 24 on DVD during the spring of '06 (while season 6 was on the air). We didn't watch any of season on the air eventually catching up with seasons 1-6 on DVD. So, we have never actually watched a 24 episode over the air.

    Anyway, I hope it's a good bridge between season 6 & 7.

    Couldn't be more excited. Unless there was a 2 hour premiere for Lost, right after.

    I'm excited as well. I have never watched 24 on tv, only DVD. I've heard it makes it harder to watch.

    I hope they go back and show you the past history needed to know this story. I have not seen the show in 2 years, and I do not remember all the little plot lines.

    But yeah, I have it set on 3 tivos right now, just in case.

    I'm excited too. I've watched every year on TV since Season 2, but this will be my first time experiencing it in HD.

    24 is best watched in HD with the lights out and stereo on. It has a pretty good DD soundtrack too.

    Isn't it actually just the first two episodes of season 7? That's what they usually do when they kick off a season. I don't think it's a separate "movie" but I could be wrong.

    Nope, it's a bridge between seasons. It takes place (or at least begins) on the inauguration day of the new president and sets up Season 7, which starts airing in January.

    Oh, ok. That's actually a good idea, to fill in the story since we've been without it for so long, I forget what happened at the end of season 6. Who am I kidding, I usually forget what happened last week. But it's a nice filler until season 7 starts in January.

    Re: 24...TONIGHT!

    I would've been excited for this tonite if it was happening about 4 years ago. The past two seasons of 24 have really sucked. Unfortunately for me, I keep watching the show. I'll watch tonite to see if this season looks anywhere remotely better, but I don't think it will be.

    I know what you mean. Season 5 was OK for me (it grew on me). Season 6 was awful, IMO--at least compared to previous seasons. It's the only one I don't own on DVD, and I don't plan on getting it unless it's on sale for way cheap someday.

    I'm also not crazy about at least one of the plot points I've heard about for the upcoming season (I think most people know about it, but I won't mention it here for those who don't want to be spoiled).

    That said, I am excited about tonight and the upcoming season--for now. I can only hope that the producers and writers having an extra year to prepare for this season gave them enough time to put together something really good. If not, Season 7 could well be the last.

    Re: 24...TONIGHT!

    Yeah, I'm a big "24" fan myself, but with that being said, season 6 certainly wasn't up to par with previous seasons (which still made it better than most of the stuff on TV). I hope the writers and producers have had enough time to get their bearings back to deliver a good season.
