The second season of ‘24′

My friend Billy was always boasting about how good the political thriller/action show “24″, and my brother did too. I always resisted it, mostly because I couldn’t stand of Kiefer Sutherland. This season we started watching 24 on Monday nights just because we had nothing better to do, and because the Las Vegas TV show that my JBQ usually watches moved to Fridays. We started watching 24 when it was already well into its plot, around episode 7 onwards. I quite liked it, but JBQ still resists it (not sure if he doesn’t like Sutherland too ;) ).

Billy said that seasons 2 and 4 are the best, so I decided to have a look at the second season. Wow! It blew me away. It is indeed a much better season than the current one, and I am thinking that the second season of 24 is as good as the first season of “Lost”. Very intense, very fast, very intriguing. Only the Kim Bauer sub-plot was too much over the top and too draged-along as far the main story is concerned.

Oh, and [after watching season 2,] Kiefer Sutherland is hot.
