Re: 24 returns as limited series

Limited is the BEST way to do 24. Kinda prevents the whole 24 hours gimmick, but they really NEED to write the whole story down before they start filming, otherwise it becomes a mess, and with 3-4 plots that follow up on each other, but don't flow. Rube-Goldbergian-style.

Season 1 was much tighter than follow-up seasons, and by season 4, the wheels really started to come off on that. Just saying the plot out loud is enough to frustrate you, can't imagine the guy trying to plan THAT attack...

By having a shorter run, and more time, hopefully they tighten it back up and tell a good story!
