A different kind of holiday

I know that Thanksgiving isn't until Thursday, but today is a special day for Kyle and I. A day that we have been looking forward to for over a year. A day that makes me emotional every time I think about it.

Today, after 18 months of being off the air, 24 returns with a 2-hour special. I was 9 1/2 months pregnant when we saw the season finale of the last season. I remember playing out in my head how disappointed I'd be if I went into labor and had to watch it on tivo instead of in HD. It's been gone way too long.

The 2-hour special tonight is actually a part of what would have been last season if it hadn't been for the writer's strike. In an interview, Keifer Sutherland said that it kind of worked out for the best because it takes place in South Africa and the writers were struggling with how to get him back to the US in real time (hmmm . . . maybe they should have been planning ahead).

Anyway, episodes resume in January, but tonight is supposed to give background information so that next season makes sense.

I can barely contain my excitement.

Kevin is in total agreement. However, he is a HUGE Colts fan and the Colts play the night game tonight. He has been contemplating which one to record (we have DVR). I think he decided to watch the Colts game tonight and 24 another night.

Sam and I LOVE 24. We missed the 2 hr special on Sunday! I assume you recorded it. Any chance we could get a copy?
