Sure, I can write a blog about it or even start my own thread but I'm not going to piss on their heads and tell them their show sucks while they discuss an episode.
I'm sorry, but there's no room in this internet for an attitude like that!

I fail at the internets.

I think 24 glorifies torture,
Glorifies is too strong a word, but it does portray it as necessary at times. It has also from time to time shown the consequences of going overboard----several torturees have later turned out to be innocent. It's not the deepest show ever, but at least it does provoke some thought on the matter.

has no characterization
To a certain degree you're right. However, there are enough exceptions to keep things interesting. It's no coincidence that Chloe, Bill, Tony and Jack----pretty much the most heavily characterized of the good guys who are still alive----were those chosen to hold the CTU flag this year (even with that agency disbanded).

Wel, I was going a little extreme to make my point but as you can probably tell I'm no fan of the show.

I agree that Chloe is an interesting character but Buchanan is good more because of the actor and Jack has never had any character, I feel. Mind you, I stopped watching after season five so it could be all better now.

No no, not all better now. But not as bad as it has been from time to time either.

Why shouldn't 24 fans get called on how their show is about glorifying torture? Assuming for discussion that it is, since I haven't personally seen it.
And my your own admission you haven't seen this episode of BSG either...

Well I watched my Sky+ recording. The "dalek voices" thing only happened for about 2 minutes, and apart from that it was fine.

It could have been something to do with the weather affecting the transmision; happens now and again with Sky if the weather's really bad
You were lucky, I had them for about half the show cutting in and out.
Same here - it stopped after about five minutes, then came back for another few about ten minutes after that

Yeah, the number is quite stunning, now that you mention it. The "Blood on the Scales" thread isn't that far off either, considering it's newer.
