I had managed to hide under a rock for the first two series, so when I saw 24 Season 3 advertised on sky 1, I thought I'd give it a try; the first few episodes were very good, but it really ramped up fast. By the 7th or 8th episode, I was uttterly addicted, and was forced to purchased sky and a video recorded for my second home, as I could no longer wait until the Saturday night repeat to watch it at home! I also purchased the first two series, which were excellent, but nothing compared to series three.
Last night was the final episode, and continued the mindblowing theme to an ultimate climax - episodes 15-20 were edge-of-the seat teretory, but for the last four, I was off the seat and onto the floor! My fiance and I were literraly screaming abuse at the TV when the final set of adverts clicked in.
All I can say is that as somebody who has already seen the full season, and now ordered the box-set, buy it now, you will not be disappointed, and don't put yourself through the heartache of waiting a week to find out how some of the cliffhanger endings turn out!
Luckily, following the final credits, we were reassured that 24 will be back with a season 4 next year. Nice one Jack.
