24 is one of the greatest shows on Television. Of course, it is about the only one I watch...

Man, I love 24.

During the season premiere, when the nuke blew, the first thing I thought was, "I wonder if that was done in Lightwave?"

Great Job, newtek! :thumbsup:

My favorite line continues to be "We're going to need a hacksaw", from ... hmmmm ... pretty sure it was very early in Season 2. My wife and I use that line a lot around here ...
