Quote from: Magnum Valentino on September 13, 2021, 09:49:31 PMThey didn't ditch it, they just truncated the opening voiceover. They also dropped the mention of what day it was ("of the California presidential primary"). But the time was always visible and it was implicit that it was in real time. Bet I'm being stupid and have misunderstood you.Also, the idea of mini-screen shots of a character sleeping has really tickled me.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on September 13, 2021, 10:39:48 PMWhat was the clip from a Japanese show that had a 24 parody with the real Tony Almeida in it? It was suitably mental (possibly involving a Japanese man in his pants) and our Tone was very game and corpsing through it. I'm definitely sure that was something I saw and not dreamt.
Quote from: stonkers on September 13, 2021, 11:55:17 PMThat's what I mean, I took dropping the "events occur in real time" voiceover to mean that you weren't necessarily watching every scene sequentially, but the bits where they had the clock up were happening at the same time. I think they dropped mentioning what day it was after season one partly because they don't all run 12am to 12am.

Quote from: Bad Ambassador on September 14, 2021, 02:38:47 PMI was a bit worried about his politics, but he's actually pro-socialised medicine and free universities and happy to be called a socialist, so that's something.
Quote from: Utter Shit on September 13, 2021, 04:45:34 PMWhich series was it where the terrorist plots had a Russian dolls vibe, where each plot was actually diverting from an even bigger attack. I think there were three plots in total. Bonkers show.

Quote from: mothman on September 14, 2021, 07:57:01 PMDesignated Survivor was OK but it suffered in some ways from the same problem 24 did. It depicted these seismic events and yet normal everyday life returns almost immediately. The US government is a huge entity yet everything is done by two or three people in a room rather than the huge assemblies of officials from literally any agency or department you could name and some you can't. The actual investigation into the attack that kicks off the story seems to be conducted by precisely two people.
