…unless you click.

It's a quintessential Jack moment. "The only death tonight on my head is yours" then he throws Margot out like a rag doll.

9 episodes left. 24 is actually 12 now, but it's still all being done in real time, pretty much, ya' know.

24. I watched the first season. When I heard it had been renewed I honestly thought they were going to follow 24 hours in the life of somebody completely different. I was disappointed to find out that was not the case and have not seen any subsequent seasons. I realize that 24 hours in the life of one occupation is not as interesting as 24 hours in the life of another but still.

If you liked season 1 you might want to check out more. It's not 9 seasons of the same characters, except Jack. The only thing the same is Jack saves the world from terrorists of every persuasion every year.

Oddly it started Nov 2011, 2 months after 9/11.

"Oddly it started Nov 2011, 2 months after 9/11."

Ha, I didn't even notice. You see what you expect to see, eh?

Interesting, but I can always remember if something happened before or after March 11th, 2011; it's like this huge roadblock in my mind, and I was certain I saw 24 well before all that happened.

According to wiki, production began in July 2001, pre 9/11. It's a show about CTU, a counterterrorism unit, so when it came out in November it was a hit.
