I've only seen the first season, and started watching the second season on DVD. 24 is great, and is fast becoming one of my favourite TV shows (only second to Alias). The character of Jack Bauer is fantastic.

I love the whole concept of the show, but I am not following the episodes, they're not on during the rare times I watch t.v.

I more or less watched the first season. I've only caught glimpses since. The episodes I've seen that aren't in the first season:

They're in their HQ place, and there is this poisonous gas. Another episode I've seen, I don't remember what happened, but he said something along the lines of "I'm going after the President."

I like the concept of real time, 24 episodes, one day, I just don't follow the plot

If you don't get the plot, that's what IMDb and Wikipedia is for.
But I follow from where you're coming from. My first few episodes watching 24 were mainly filled with questions relating to "Who's who at CTU?" but you steadily overcome it.

Was last night the season finale? That's stupid.
Dmetri and Fayad are dead, the bombs are secure. The whole story line is wrapped up. I know it's from a past story (which I haven't seen) but why is that Chinese guy calling about Audrey (his wife?) that is supposed to be dead?

I think they really pushed it with 'coincidence'; right after it's over, he calls. Stupid.


Last night's episode disappointed me (at the end).

[Edit: I may purchase all the seasons, that thought crossed my mind last night. But I'll do it after I move.]

No, it was episode 17 so there's another 7 to go.

I thought they were going to save the Audrey story for the movie


It looks to me like they decided to switch directions with the season midway through.

Advocatus, in 24, there rarely is an end to the story. It happens in nearly every season.

Season 1 - Jack defeats Ira Gaines and his team, only to encounter the Drazens.
Season 2 - For the first half of the day, CTU Agents are looking for the nuclear bomb, and then, after the bomb goes off, there is the situation about the Cyprus [?] recording.
Season 4 - Nuclear plant meltdown, Air Force One being shot down, and then a nuclear missile being launched.
Season 5 - Security for President Logan's announcement, the Airport hostage incident, the Sentox nerve gas, President Logan's treasonous activities.

And Audrey Raines is dead?

I came into 24 about 2/3rds through the first day and found it VERY good. Since then i have taken great pains to catch every show and i must say they are brilliant!

However when season six started i consistently missed episodes so im gonna wait until they repeat all of them. No use in watching single episodes. Better to catch it on a consistent basis...

The impression I kind of get is they like, run out of ideas, or can't fully explore the potential for the plot :/

24 is quite fun, watched series 2 & am following 6. Am glad his daughter is not around in 6 - am so glad, if I ever met her I would have to stab her in the spleen.

Well...

There was that file that said she was dead and everything. I didn't think she was,
but I also missed a vast majority of the series

Not really.
Firstly, I'm used to my favourite character dying; firstly Nina Myers, then Michelle Dessler, and now Audrey Raines. Secondly, as Advocatus said, there was something about Audrey being killed in a car crash in China, after following a lead which lead to the Chinese Government. And thirdly, because Wikipedia said so.

What about George Mason?


My "first rule" to 24 is: "There's rarely an end to the story".
