I think that ’24’ is the best show on television. Er, uh, will be the best show on television again after the writers strike is over.
Keri has always been hesitant to watch it and really, quite uninterested. But, during this time of year (when football is [almost] over, baseball has yet to start, and March Madness is still a month away), we like to watch DVD seasons of our favorite shows. We have all 10 seasons of ‘Friends’ on DVD that we love. Keri has a couple seasons of ‘Gilmore Girls’ and we just finished up watching Season 2 of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ which is, in my opinion, the funniest show on TV that nobody watches.
I also have Seasons 1-3 of ’24’ on DVD. I have made it through Season 1, and had an itch to watch some more. This time, though, I convinced Keri to give it a chance. I wanted her to have the backstory, so we started with Season 1 again last night. When we went to bed, we had watched 3 episodes. I asked Keri what she thought. Her response was, “I am frustrated. I want to stay up all night and watch it now.”
In light of this amazing turn of events, I submit to you the following. The unaired pilot episode of ’24,’ which takes place in the year 1994. Enjoy.
