For the past few months, me and the Cyni-wife haven’t been truly happy until our netflix delivery arrives with the latest 24 dvd. We innocently enough placed season one into the netflix queue one day without realizing that 24 is the tv equivalent of crack cocaine. Especially when seen on dvd. Broadcast tv forces you to watch it in small doses. It’s more like being at a wine tasting where you sip the wine and savor all the subtle nuances of each particular vintage. Watching 24 on dvd is more like being at a college kegger with somebody forcing a funnel down your throat and pouring each episode down your gullet.

This season is the first one I’m watching as it is broadcast and I need to vent. I’ll vent in the comments so there won’t be any spoilers for those who are still catching up to speed.
