The prequel to 24 Day 7 aired on Sky One here in the UK last night. The two hour teaser was a result of the writers’ strike in the USA last year which I hope gave Joel Surnow et al. some time to properly think through the new season. The delay also worked out well in that it gave Sky and Virgin Media to grow up and stop acting like spoilt children.
It didn’t really matter which TV show it was. It could have been a new series of Lost, Heroes or Ugly Betty. The big news for me is that this was broadcast only a day after it was shown in the States. Have TV execs finally cottened on to the fact that fans don’t want to wait six months to see their favourite programmes and will just download episodes from the Internet instead?
I certainly hope so.
