I love 24
, but the idea of making a big-screen version
of it just doesn't seem like it will be all that successful. Or that it wouldn't somehow go against the basic conceit of the show of having each hour of the show unfold in "real time" (though I think many of us will agree that the reality of the real time concept flew out the window early in season two).
Also, the show needs to learn from the example of The X-Files
. Season five of the show set up the movie and it did it fairly well, but there was no huge payoff at season's end. And the movie had to tread a fine line of not being so convoluted that long-time fans didn't feel like it was watered down too much and new fans would understand just what in the name of heaven was unfolding on screen.
