Well, last night I finished watching the second season of 24 (except for the bonus disc which I'll watch tonight) and I just gotta say, are they finished filming the third season, yet? Is it on DVD, yet? Well, is it? Is it?

Yes, rhetorical questions, but patience has never been one of my virtues. Don't ask what my virtues are, I'm on another track right now.

I had forgotten what an incredibly sexy voice Kiefer Sutherland has (probably because I haven't seen much of his work). Athos was always my fave in The Three Musketeers, partly because of that voice. To those who know me well, this will come as no surprise. Yes, I still fall asleep to Liam Neeson's narration of How the Irish Saved Civilization, and yes, I still have no idea how they did it, because I can't concentrate enough to actually process what he's saying. Other voices that make me weak? Kenny Chesney, John Spencer, Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman. Voice, smile, eyes, hair...

Sorry, where was I?

Oh, yes, 24. I can't watch the third season because I don't have access to TV stations, just my DVD collection, Netflix loans, and some old VCR tapes (although the machine has been acting up lately). Aside from CMT, Headline News, Stargate SG-1, West Wing, MacGyver, and Alton Brown, I don't miss cable (and some of those programs have seriously degraded lately). Besides, I don't think I could watch 24 as a weekly program. I'm too impatient -- as soon as I finish one episode, I can't wait to start the next one. I was seriously ticked when I realized that the post office hadn't delivered disc 4. I finished disc 3 and grabbed the next one, only to find that it was disc 5. Said some very unladylike things.

Okay, so I'm not very ladylike most of the time, but you get the idea. I was very upset at the delay...

Back on track: I'm thoroughly enjoying 24. At first I thought I wouldn't need to own them, but I'm reconsidering since I've had quite a few moments of "Oh, wow, I had forgotten that even happened!" Besides, there's that voice....

Minor Spoilers:

A few miscellaneous thoughts: Sad as it was, killing Teri was the right thing to do; disturbing as they were, the scenes of Jack being tortured were necessary. That's my two cents' worth.

To Kiefer and crew: Keep up the good work!
