The End of a Long Day

As die-hard fans already know, 24 had its big two-hour season finale tonight. I won't give anything away for the benefit of those who might have taped it, but, if you've already seen it, you might get a kick out of Dave Barry's liveblogging of the show.

I rarely make the effort to watch much live TV, besides sporting events, but this show really captured my imagination this season. So while I tend to tape my favorite shows and watch them later (usually after the machine spits the tape out when it's full), this show, with the exception of one night when I had a gig and had to tape it, had me in front of the TV every Monday night at 8 p.m. central time since I first saw it back on February 7. I'll definitely miss it between now and January, but I'll use part of that time to check out the DVD's of the first three seasons.

I'm game for it: Dave Barry also points out on his blog that there's a 24 game coming out for the Playstation 2. Sounds cool...

The following takes place between 7:30 a.m. and 12:00 noon: One more half-length teaching day, and I'm done for the semester in the public schools. The extra sleep tomorrow night is gonna be awesome, to say the least.

Boooo... patiently waiting over here for the 4th season to hit our screens!

We usually got it about halfway thru your season... guess our tv programmers have decided to hold it til they can get more ratings out of it :(

Please be soon... please be soon...

Curiously... do you get any Aussie tv shows over there at all?

Hmm, not sure. If I don't watch a show, I may not be sure where it's produced. Name a few and we'll see...

Disney Channel shows The Wiggles. My three-year-old never misses them!

Is that Australian?

Kev are you asking if The Wiggles are Australian? As they say, "Beauuuuuuuuuty mate!"
