Good endings and bad - The Dragon's Mortal Morsel — LiveJournal
I don't bite... much
Good endings and bad
So, I just got around last night to watching the Season finale of 24. I'm pleased that they didn't actually falter and make it a 'live happily ever after'. It was intense. I really hope they release it on DVD at some point, as I'd actually like to own this, and I don't say that about many series (Buffy and B5 being the only other TV series that I have any interest in owning on DVD).

I also hope that they do another series that is as interesting soon.

Current Mood: awake awake
Current Music: Delerium - Karma - Enchanted

I hope I didn't spoil anything for you when I posted the other day, I don't remember how much I said and I didn't know that you were following the series! I've heard that 24 will be back again next season... a rumor that seems somewhat substantiated by the fact that they were calling it a 'season finale' rather than a 'series finale' in promos. But then again, maybe I read too much into things. :)

Nope.. you didn't spoil anything for me. :)

And yeah, I was thinking about it last night, and they definately left the stage set in such a way that they could do more with these characters (if they wanted) or pick up following a different character, or even keep the 'theme' and change venues/characters entirely.. I hope they don't do the latter, as part of the draw for this show for me was the innovative format AND the actor (I happen to like Sutherland as an actor :) Having Dennis Hopper as a special guest actor was just extra coolness :)

Goes to show how little I watch tv - what is 24 about? What channel? (so maybe I can catch a repeat or two)...I *used* to watch Buffy -haven't done so in a while - that's the problem with being in the midwest - prime time starts at 7 - not 8, and Buffy is not ok for the girls to watch - and I ALWAYS forget to set the VCR...soooooo....I'm way way way out of it. The new series that picked up after B5 - the one about the rangers? I wanted to watch that one too and have missed it entirely - same thing with Enterprise.

Umm. Truth to tell, I couldn't tell you the channel since I just TiVo it.. :) Means that I don't pay much attention to what station a show is on once I've started watching it. As to what it's about... well, it tracked the life of the head of CTU in California (counter terrorism unit) over the course of one day as someone was attempting to assassinate one of the presidential candidates. The story was well written and the format was pretty novel. A quick google search however turns up that it was Fox. and points to this site which requires flash.

Thats the other benefit of a TiVo over a VCR.. I set up a season pass once and never really need to think about it again ;) It's *sweet*. It also lets you time-shift easily so you could watch Buffy when the girls weren't around or whatever :)

There were two B5 things.. One was a the series that got cut short after only 13 episodes because of a falling out between JMS and ... (spacing the name of the studio). The other was Legend of the Rangers and I think only a pilot was ever made of that.. Hopefully it will actually run at some point. Enterprise I watched the first few episodes of and then gave up as a lost cause.. Not even up to my notoriously low sci-fi standards :)

*laugh* I remember ...we talked about TiVo briefly when we got our sattelite system, but Marc was out of work, and if we went the base setup way it would pay for itself compared to what we were paying for cable within a month - and so we couldn't justify getting the $300 dollar DirecTV w/ TiVo unit...I heard it works better with the two in one, but that it can be done with the TiVo separate as well...I hope so - I'd rather expand than replace. :) But it's still something down the road since Marc's still looking for a job. BUT - a friend has some on the side work for him to do setting up servers and such - he's got a possibility with Medtronic in the works, and if Deikle does actually buy Fingerhut, then it's very possible he'll just get his old job back. My understanding is that he's not going to buy all of it, but enough that Marc may just get it back!
