This is definitely one of the best shows ever. Each character is unique in their own way, but they all mesh really well together. The writers and creators of this show really knew what they were doing when they decided to give this show a chance.
I'm not even half way through watching this show and I love it. The chemistry between Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin is perfect. Plus, I really love seeing Martin Sheen back in a TV show. The switch from watching Sam Waterston on The Newsroom to this was nice. Overall, the main characters are enjoyable and I feel like this story is something that many older people may be able to relate to.
I thought this show was really good. What made it stand out was the format of the show, being played out in "real time." A few of the later seasons (not including the rebooted 9th season) were kind of repetitive to me, but what else do you expect with a show like this? It's a pretty simple plot: terrorists threaten the US, the FBI/CIA messes up and they call in Jack Bauer to save the day. Regardless of that, it was still pretty interesting and kept my attention.
Such a great show. I wish I had watched it when it was originally on, but I don't think I would have gotten the humor back then since I was only 13. So in a way, I'm glad my brother introduced it to me only a few years ago.
The 4th season was good, but in my opinion, it wasn't as good as the original 3. I've been meaning to go back and re-watch the 4th season. Perhaps if I do that, I'll find it more enjoyable than before.
At first I wasn't sure if I would like this show because I'm not a huge fan of blood and whatnot, but this show grew on me pretty quickly. The best season of the show was definitely the 4th season with The Trinity Killer. If it wasn't for the last season (and the finale episode) I would have given this show 5 stars.
It's been a while since I watched this show, but I really enjoyed it. From what I remember, I wasn't too happy with the end of the series, but I also liked how it was more of a realistic ending. I won't say what happened for those who haven't watched it all the way through yet.
It's definitely about time that I went back and re-watched this show though. Billie Piper is awesome. :)
