After watching 24 for the first time last week, I've got to say that I am hooked on this show. I really want to get caught up on the previous seasons before the current one gets too far along, just in case they throw in a storyline that requires knowledge of the show's past.
My grandiose plan was to knock out all of season one of 24 over the next couple of days - a social butterly I am not, at least not for this weekend. This marathon viewing was all going to be chronicled on the blog (boy, am I a dork). I went to Blockbuster to rent the six DVDs and every one was in stock except for the second one. So, that put a kink in my plans and I just got the first volume to watch tonight. Sure, I could've gone to Hollywood Video to look for the second disc, but I've amassed a lot of credit at BB from trading in a bunch of DVDs and video games a while back. Hopefully, disc 2 will be back in stock when I return disc 1 tomorrow. Or maybe I'll get too wrapped up in this series, decide to screw BB, and head over to HV.
(BTW, aside from being a Happy Mondays song, the title of this post is also a movie every music geek should watch.)
EDIT: 10:01 PM - Just finished the first disc. I could definitely go for another episode or two. I'll be returning this baby in the morning and hunting down the rest.
EDIT: 11:41 AM - Thanks to a friend of a friend (see comments), I'm borrowing the entire first season set. The marathon shall continue...
