I was looking for something to fill in the winter evenings. I mean, you find a great HBO show, and then it's over in six episodes. So I thought, “Eight seasons with 24 episodes each, I'll give 24 a go.” Season 1 starts off hard work. You remember the waif look was in for women and that you didn't really like Kiefer Sutherland. And everything, every moment, is turbo-charged with jangling music, split screens and DRAMA. There's no light and shade to pace the plot. But I'm getting into it, and hoping that in a few seasons I might actually enjoy it.
