5 stars....OMG Kim!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 24: Season Five DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I would give this 1 star (possibly) if I did the opposite of what 1 guy did, by just watching the Kim bits. She annoys the bejesus out of me..Have just finished watchng 2 and 3 back-to-back, and anyone who says that the story suspends belief try watching Hollyoaks or Eastenders or any of the "eviction" type shows. 24 is the type of TV that harks back to the days when you couldn't wait for the next week, you'd move heaven and earth and your parents out of the room just to get your favorite seat for the next episode. You'd talk about it with friends, you'd relive the plot line and wonder what would happen next week. Of course our propensity to want everything now means that a 24 week period of excitement is crammed into a weekend. Who cares!! I just wish the mainstream channels could buy or make something as compeling as 24, that would justify the license fee. I have just ordered series 4 and 5 and now I know what to expect, there will be a few earthquakes in my house when it arrives.
Incidently the closest mainstream TV got to 24 albeit in a different way was when Cracker first came out, and the mini drama The Second Coming.
