so far, and I only hope the producers don't make the error that so many makers of good TV seem to make - that of 'milking' the concept, and in the absence of strong story lines lapsing in to fantasy-land.
If I have a hint of anything that smacks of a dream sequence I'm off into the sunset, never to return.
In fact, good though "24" is the real problem is the role of Jack. No matter what happens there he is at the end of it all, imprisoned maybe, destitute perhaps, but alive. It's implausible.
Spooks has a greater sense of reality. Main characters are developed and the audience "gets to know" the character. The difference is in Spooks they are then killed off, it is impossible to know if any individual will make it to the end of the episode let alone the series.....meanwhile Jack soldiers on.
