Jack Bauer is back on form as the rogue agent that is clearly the only person who can save America. It is just so fast, so dramatic and I love every minute of it. So excited have I been that I had to email an old work colleague expounding my adoration for the programme because I know that he will sympathise with my plight. Soon it will be time for sleep, but the flashing lights, loud music and gunfire will make my brain and eyes twitch long into the darkness.
Brilliant TV is rarer than we think these days and so far, season 5 may be the best of 24 yet, and for me that was already saying something. If you have never seen any of these series, what have you been watching? The only question that remains is; why does Keifer Sutherland not want to marry me?
