Bastards! Why do they fucking do that! :P

It won't actually look any different on a shelf, but inside, it's very different. Instead of the lovely fold-out-edness of previous seasons, it uses a "book" system similar to that found in the Alien Quadrilogy boxset. Also, the outside of the box isn't as "glossy" as previous seasons.

Dunno to be honest. As many have speculated, I imagine its going to be only a few weeks/months after S4 and have Jack working alone. Some say it will continue the chinese embassasy feud and they find out Jack is actually alive. Still i dont see how thats going to have much to do with the main plot.

Supposed to start in January 06 though.

Got the DVD set of this today from CD-WOW, and it's a fugging great set :)

I'm glad the box is like the Alien Quadrilogy set, and saves folding out 40 pieces of card each side to get to a disc as with the previous seasons :D

The episode menus are also shit, they each have a snapshot of the nest episode next to the 'play' selection. I always have to look away on that menu so I don't see the picture- it's fucked me over too many times before now with stupid spoilers for the episode. I mean, what's the fucking point in that?

I downloaded series 4, but for those that bought it and have since watched it, are you not just a bit pissed off that Tony 'Tony' Almeida was on the cover!

Yeah, cheers for that fucktards. Just like when palmer was on the season 3 cover.

My Mum borrowed s4 in the week and it was the first thing she noticed. I can't believe they did that. Fuckwits.

Just watched the whole of 24 S4 this weekend. A good series, which I really really enjoyed but it didn't quite grip me like some of the others.

I think the main reason why it didn't grip me quite so much was that I kind of new what was going to happen, not because it was predictable (as it definetly wasn't) but as a fan of 24 you generally know the 'rules of 24' and how they think/work.

Hopefully as mentioned earlier on in the thread the new writers for season 5 can bring back a fresh new direction of the series which will keep both the average punter and 24 fan guessing all the way.

In order of greatness:

24 S1

24 S3

24 S4

24 S2 (or as I like to refer to it - kim of her silly adventures)

Yeah, I'm finding S4 a little on the predictable side at the moment (I'm only 9 episodes through it, mind). I'm still enjoying it a lot, there's a lack of silly, distracting subplots which is a good sign. My order of greatness would be:

S3

S1

S2

I really enjoyed S3, lots of great action and some ace cliffhangers in there :) S1 was great, as it's the one that kick started everything, but the Palmer/family subplot was very annoying and would really put me off watching it over again.

As great 24 is, I also hope they can head the next series in a new direction otherwise it is going to get tired. While I was watching a few of the earlier episodes of S4 I could've swore there were some shots of Bauer in the car with his mobile phone that were taken straight from a previous series ;) It's the gripping (if a little far fetched) storyline and constant surprises that make 24 such a great series, if it slips into a predictable formula it'll lose that, so let's hope it doesn't. So please, no more moles in CTU! :rolleyes:

What happened in S2 again?

He's a random collection of words which sum up what I can remember about S2:

Bombs in the city. CTU blowing up. Kim getting lost and faffing about. A woman sneaking into some sikh religious ceremony. Jack getting tortured. Jack flying a plane into the desert with a bomb onboard, John Connor's stepdad taking over. Palmer's hand melting.

Ian Somerhalder from Lost (Boone) is in Season 5.

"24"  playing "Joseph Bennett" in episode: "Day 5: 9:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m." (episode # 5.1) January 2006

NOBODY LOOK AT THE IMDB 24 PAGE EVER AGAIN, AND IF YOU DO - DON'T MENTION IT.

FFS, they ruined Tony and Palmer coming back in the last series, now I know who's going to be in the next series. FUCKING HELL.

True i guess. But knowing who is going to be in the first episode - a completly new character - is hardly ruining anything.

But yeah i wouldnt want secrets being let out. I bet if you looked for tony and palmer, it would say now whether or not they are in it.

Yeah, but it also reveals a fairly surprising returning character. Several in fact.
