Vincent of TGC writes: I love the US action series 24. I loved it when it was being shown, and I still love it now, a couple of years after it ended (well, apart from Season 6, but a piece of writing about videogames is not the time to get into that). When Season 1 was first aired on the BBC in 2001, I couldn’t get enough. It was innovative, fresh and exciting. However, there was always one thing about that first season that I absolutely hated at the time. For those who have never watched the show, this is a minor spoiler, but it is relevant to this article (Promise!).
