The pace of this particular show makes watching episode after episode a lot of fun, and we've had a few late nights staying up for "just one more episode". None of this wait-around-for-next-week stuff.
However, it does lead to spoilers. Not of the terrible, "Thanks you just wrecked Star Wars for me" kind, but along the lines of the following. Which I will outline in some sort of screenplay format.
INT. DESERTED WAREHOUSE / BUILDING / GOVERNMENT OFFICE. NIGHT.
Jack BAUER and his buddy, a government AGENT in a nice suit, enter the room.
The Agent draws a gun.
AGENTHand it over, Jack! Or I'll shoot!
CUT TO BLACK
CLOCK ONSCREEN TICKING
Cut to audience watching.
GLENNOh no, what's going to happen to Jack? Is he gonna die?
KARAWe've got five more seasons to watch - spoiler alert, I think Jack lives!
