    Mark - time is short, but you still have a shot. Go out and buy Season 1 and 2 DVDs. Find someone who has them if you don't wanna drop the loot - but trust me it's worth it and then some. That's 48 episodes in a week. You can do it. 7 a day. 40 mins an episode (without commercials). 7*40=280 mins. A little under 5 hours per day. Do it man

    My friends and I are desperately trying to finish the first two seasons by the time season 3 starts. We're 13 hours into the first day. We may need to have a marathon session during the weekend.

    Damn World Series taking up all of my time.

    does everyone know where it starts? 3 years after the end of season 2. and Jack has a partner! what is that? he's the man who works by himself!

    and Kim works at CTU. Rriiggghhttt...

    This is going to be good, if I can get used to all of the new stuff...

    this should be good stuff. i had just bought the first season on dvd when raleigh got nailed with that ice storm in dec that shut down the city for 5 days. i luckily had power and the time on my hands to watch all 24 episodes. i just bought the second season on dvd last week for $36 brand new. i need to get on my horse if i plan on watch the 3rd season in real time. i also have dvr if i can't make it. i'll just have the 3rd season waiting on my dvr...can't wait.

    I want to talk about the possibilities for S3, but there are obviously going to be spoilers for S1 and S2 in here if we do. Should I rename the thread to note this?

    Oh yeah I can't wait. This is gonna rock. Who wants to take me up on a bet that Kim either a.) gets kidnapped or b.) gets lost or something. Thats the only thing I don't like about this show. The Kim factor is predictable.

    Mark, are you positive you want the readers digest of S1 and 2? I can write up something for you if you really think you wanna know and you aren't going to have time to catch them before S3.

    EDIT: Too late. Nice catch Dena.

    Mark, those episode guides I linked should be helpful enough so you understand season 3.

    Mark - read up on the links Dena posted for a pretty comprehensive rundown of each episode.

    Anyway - I have some really big question marks about S3 which drive me nuts, because even at this point they aren't solidly answered! They're still filming S3 and by the time the premier airs they'll still have about 10-12 more episodes to shoot, so they can adjust midway through the season based on fan feedback.

    Bottom line: Nina, Mandy, Max, and the guy Max was talking to on the phone (the guy eating breakfast, I think), NEED to be involved. The whole notion of that common thread throughout the seasons that this higher-up organization has been behind it all is very, very exciting.

    If anyone has seen the deleted scenes on the S2 DVD, they've noticed that there was a scene where Nina is supposed to join Max on the boat right at the very end. That in itself provides hope that they have that kind of thought in mind.

    Remember the end of S1? "If you kill me, you won't know who I work for. You think I work for the Drazen's, but I don't."

    And what the HELL did Jack whisper to Nina right after he escaped her holding him hostage in S2? I've been reading on Fox's message boards and it's just as much a mystery to them as well. Funny thing is, there are always one or two people who have the inside track and post info, but this is one topic that wasn't ever resolved. I really hope it plays a part in this season. If you go back and watch that scene, you can't help but sense the deliberateness of it. Something's gotta come of it.

    I know what you mean. Then when you find there is a cliff hanger, there is always like a three week break for like a tennis tournament! I hate that!

    I love the tick. I was afraid they would change it for S2 but they stuck with it. It's intense - they have great episode endings - and they've gotten so good with it, where you even get fired up at commercial breaks as well.

    Funny thing is, after S1, the producers presented Fox with two versions of the show - one that held true to the real-time form, and one that was just like any other show, ala CSI - standalone episodes. Thank god that they chose to stay with this format. That alone makes this one of the most unique and exciting dramas ever to grace television.
