I watched the very first episode of "24" last night, having finally started on a re-watch of the whole series (that may well take me four years to complete). To be honest, it was a bit of a shock - it's amazing just how far TV has come in 14 years! But it was also quite amazing how different the show was - Jack started off being fairly happy, the ticking clock wasn't quite so in-your-face, and the show was actually fairly slow to get started. It just wasn't the same frantic race that later series became.
Plus, of course, everyone involved looked really young!
Anyway, it will be interesting watching the whole thing gradually unfolding again, all the twists and turns, and especially the evolution of the format.
