    Two hour premier - as preposterous as ever.

    Totally missed the boat on 24. Never seen a single episode.

    The thing about 24 - you only need to see one episode.
    If that one works for ya then you have many seasons of the same to fill your needs for whispering defenders of freedom..

    Why did you watch it if you hate the show?

    That's the thing about 24... It's mindless action and entertainment. And the acting is usually awful. But anything that involves counter-terrorism interests me. I like the show for what it is. It is an original show with an original idea and the only show that has operated on real time.

    I just watched the premier... I've seen all previous episodes. I can't stop now.

    Your lady from Game of Thrones is in this season.

    Show me where I said I hated the show..
    Can a person not acknowledge something to be preposterous and not still like it?
    You basically just did the same thing..

    There's no shtick involved. I will always call it like I see it.
    But I will see something before passing judgement.

    When Jack says "NOW!", take a shot.

    When Chloe makes a duck face, take a shot.

    It is mindless action. The final couple of seasons were disappointing but I thought the two-hours last Monday night were pretty entertaining.
