The following takes place between…

Standard

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention this portion of our lives.

Our addiction.

Jack “What Ever It Takes” Bauer has taken over our lives.

We started 24 a way long time ago — I can’t remember if it was before we got pregnant with Keaton or while I was pregnant with him. We did Seasons 1 and 2 in the span of…a few weeks. But we had started Alias already and HAD to finish that. Well that took…about 3 years 😉 Cut us some slack — babies, school, work…it’s a busy household!

Well, we finally finished Alias this fall. We started on season 3 of 24 at the beginning of Zach’s Christmas break…needless to say, we’ll be starting Season 5 tomorrow (Sunday) night…For the record, we snagged Season 4 from our small group leaders on my birthday, Jan. 3rd, I believe we started the next night…that took approximately 19 days to do a season of 24 episodes. We skipped some nights (NOT many!) Some nights we only did 1 episode, but most nights we did 2.

I’m certain that I am more addicted to it than Zach is, however he completely enjoys it as well. It’s nice to see someone have a really crummy bad day (shoot, all this mess happens in an HOUR!) when I’ve had a rough day!

Season 6 will have to wait til summer, as by the time we finish Season 5, Zach will be well into the semester (and I don’t think I can go 2-3 days between episodes, haha!)

I heard sad rumors that this current season (8) is it for Jack & CTU, and that they may do a movie to wrap up everything…but it makes sense…I mean, bad guys can only do SO many things…and Jack can only torture people in SO many ways….

Right…?

  1. LOL! We are like that with CSI. I swore I wouldn’t watch it anymore after Grissom left…but…then I watched a few of the newer ones and they sucked me back in…..we go through seasons in a matter of days, lol!

  2. We love 24 too. Season 5 is outstanding. (the best, I think) We watched them on DVD too. It’s definitely the best that way. It’s hard to wait a whole week between episodes!

  3. Oh how we love 24! With all these snow days, we were able to watch Season 3! I’ve watched the seasons basically very randomly. I watched the last bit of season 6 and got hooked, then watched season 7 and then season 1 and now just watched season 3 and of course we’re watching season 8 right now. So very out of order, but we’re thinking we may go in order from now on starting with season 4. 🙂
