24

So we were naughty enough to book a meeting room at work, and arrange for the video equipment to be set up, just so we could watch the last episode of 24.

(Spoilers)

Bit of a problem with the video tracking so the image kept getting scrunched up. I had a feeling through the scrunches and snow that some of the images were very strong. The scenes with Sherri were like a spaghetti western

Highlight for me:Tony Almeida smiles - awww. I think he should have his own show.

On the other hand I felt indifferent to President Palmer dying - perhaps because he was always a bit too saintly for this world.

If you would like to read a proper analysis of 24 go to sight and sound.

Viewers were not simply asking story questions like, "Do you trust Senator Palmer's wife?" Or, "Are Jack and Nina over?" No, we were identifying with the team behind the show, and their self-imposed dilemma. We wanted to know, "How are they going to spin this out through the middle sections without losing us?" Or, "It's not just who is the traitor, but is anyone telling the truth?" Or, "The secret is, it's all about cell phones." In other words, the team behind 24 had cottoned on to the idea that while their 'story' was delirious, their own strategies and machinations in storytelling, or in doing serial television, were equally riveting.


Or read the 24 weblog which has a whole bunch of great stuff.
