    Hi all 24 fans.

    I started watching 24 this season (season 5 here).

    I was so impressed that I ordered season 4 on DVD and have already finished watching it.

    Now there is only 1 episode left of this season and I am unsure what to do.

    I realize now that starting at season 4 was a bad idea, but it did give me some instant gratification as it put many things about season 5 into perspective for me.

    So where do I go now? Should I continue backwards now that I have already started down this reverse order, or should I continue at the beginning with the series 1 DVD's?

    Continue at the beginning with Season 1.  It will make all the pieces fall into place.  Best to watch from the beginning to end and see the story unfold.

    There's two left, 5x22 was the last episode to air in the US Smiley

    As for the question, start at S1 and go forward, the series build on eachother, you'll spoil it if you go backwards!

    Gotta start at Season 1, Episode 1.

    From the start, the show will grip you.

    agree on start at S1, but in S2 skip the places where kimberly appeares. it was the worst series IMHO. she's just running around and running around and ... the S3 is not bad as well, but S4 is definitelly the best, altough concerning the real-time factor the S1 was almost flawless. from there they don't seem to take so much care. anyway, have fun...

    Ya, but next weeks season finally is a 2 hour episode.

    I started with season 1 last night, watched the first 4 episodes and they were great; tonight, the next 4 episodes.
