They know how to make a TV show that grabs you by the throat, and doesn't let go, I'll give them that. As we moved into the last 20-30 minutes, the outcome seemed inevitable, just like in real life it's inevitable. I cried and petted Sparrow, who's been asleep on my lap all night.
Kiefer Sutherland really is an amazingly good actor. I was pulled right into his loss and grief at what he had to do. He kept me riveted to the screen.
The next 20 hours... damn, they should be something.
And in non spoiler news, going on sale tomorrow, is a DVD version of the first four hours. Now that's some interesting marketing. DVDs have come a long way.
