Call me ignorant… but up until last week, I haven’t completed a single episode of the hit series, “24” (Keiffer Sutherland, Elisha Cuthbert)… nor did I actually care to.

But 2 weeks back, it has been somewhat of a coincidence that during those times that I shuttle from one cable channel to another, I always happen to chance upon the television program on the C/S (Crime and Suspense) Network (owned by Solar).

I’ve read the rave reviews online… the critical praises it has merited. I figured, it was finally time to see for myself what people were going so “gaga” about.

So I went to my nearby DVD shop and bought “24” seasons 1-5. With a skeptical approach, I started my first episode… before I knew it, I had already finished 6 episodes! I stopped not because I got bored… but because the sun was about to rise and I knew I needed to get some serious shuteye. Had it not been for my conscious effort to pause my marathon, I probably would’ve completed the entire 1st season in one sitting!

This is good stuff! So good actually that it sometimes rivals my internet time. The last time I actually did a similar DVD viewing marathon with the same engrossment and eagerness was when I got the entire “Taken” mini-series (produced by Steven Spielberg).

Now, everytime I’m doing something away from my DVD player… I get antsy, looking forward to my next “24” fix!

I also enjoy the fact that the series has no qualms about killing off big/major characters every now and then making the plot very successful in it’s unpredictability (which all the more adds to the excitement). Unlike other programs wherein you could almost be sure that the big stars will never be killed off the show.

You guys probably already know all this… but if you’re like good ‘ol ignorant me, then you should probably try giving “24” a shot. It won’t disappoint. Don’t even try watching one of the show’s episodes on TV, which is probably already in the middle of it’s season run. You won’t fully understand the plot. Watch it from the very beginning…

But I have to warn you…

    I had the same experience with Heroes. Season 1 pa nga lang. Never seen anything like it before. Its a “maka-kagat labing edge-of-the-seat” experience. Lufet!!
