      I am very disappointed that 24 has been cancelled. It is clearly my favorite TV show and I have purchased all the DVDs for rewatching. I will look forward to buying Day 8 when it comes out and can only hope that someone will pick up Day 9. After all, you really only need Jack Bauer and Chloe plus a few others and you can make a show. I promise to purchase any DVDs that will be made.
