"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on September 13, 2021, 01:11:54 PMI can't actually remember the rest, but one hilariously melodramatic Season 2 cliffhanger, in which Kim got her foot caught in a trap and a mountain lion popped up to menace her, is etched into my memory.
Quote from: kalowski on September 13, 2021, 02:28:50 PMPut me down as another who'd come here to mention the mountain lion. Kim's every increasing jeopardy was ludicrous.
Quote from: jobotic on September 13, 2021, 02:18:16 PMWatched the first half of Season 1. Can't remember much about it but I know I was gripped but then he got his daughter back after twelve hours and then she instantly got captured again or something and I thought fuck this.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on September 13, 2021, 04:11:52 PMI think they didn't know until it was too late that they'd been picked up for the full season so they had a mid-season "ending" and then had to spin wheels somewhat to get to the actual 24th episode because it wasn't a certainty they'd have to make it, hence the awful amnesia subplot.Anyone who thinks season 1 is better than 2 or 3 is fucking mental, unless some of that comes from the novelty of having watched it when it was new. The redemption of George Mason is one of my favourite TV subplots ever.
QuotePaulson sensed danger when the other agents didn't respond so he had Teri and Kim hide in a room. Jovan Myovic broke into the room where they were hiding right before Teri took a car from the garage. Jovan got in his car and drove after them. Teri tried to lose the car and turn on another street. While seeing if Jovan was chasing them, the car which Kim was in fell down the side of a hill and Teri assumed that she was dead.With her shock at witnessing what she believed was Kim's death, Teri experienced Dissociative Amnesia and was unable to remember anything about her life.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on September 13, 2021, 04:51:20 PMI was going to make some point about it being one of the first big shows of the bingewatch boxset era, but it probably doesn't benefit from watching it that way.
Quote from: Shameless Custard on September 13, 2021, 02:31:50 PMDidn't she end up getting a job with Jack etc, even though she had zero qualifications and could barely even go to the corner shop without getting abducted?I know they liked the actress and wanted to keep her around, but sheesh

Quote from: Spode on September 13, 2021, 07:39:56 PMIf we're ranking 24's greatest dorks, and we're not, I'd like to put Paul forward from series 4.Jack steals his wife, tortures him with a lamp and then gets him off the life support to save a terrorist. Not a great day for the lad. On the plus side, does get to shoot a gun.
Quote from: stonkers on September 13, 2021, 07:26:08 PMI was well into it for seasons 1-4, missed 5 (which I've heard is one of the better seasons), watched 6 and the TV movie then stopped bothering.It's all pretty stupid but season one did somewhat try to maintain the 24 hour concept, Jack actually falls asleep at one point. Didn't the first couple of seasons try to claim it was happening in real time, then they ditched that when it became obvious the timescales made no sense at all.
Quote from: ElTwopo on September 13, 2021, 10:18:09 PMCan't remember the series when this happened, but when Spoiler alertTony Almeida came back from the dead[close]I did actually punch the air with glee.I enjoyed it for 5 or 6 seasons. It's utter bollocks but also actually entertaining.EDIT - the spoiler above apparently happened in Season 7 which I don't think I watched. So fuck knows.
