I have never watched an episode.  I have a friend that was toatally into this show, but time and effort never made me peak my interest enough for me to sample the show a the begining, and a show like this, you can not jump into halfway.  I got to say, 'ol Jack Bauer seems to have the worst days EVER at work.
The survey let people vote for the cover art they liked the best and what package design they wanted.   If it is thinkpak, you might get a more variety of art (case art and slipcase art).  Also the UK art is never the same as the US art for 24.
How does that change the cover-art?
A cover art is a cover art whether is a digipack or thinpak cases..
I don't think that will be the US cover since Fox Home Video had an online survey for package design (digipak or thinkpak cases) and package art for 24 season 5.
I just hope the box isn't filled with spoilers like the past seasons...
Tried to update this but it wouldn't let me so apologies for the 'double dip'. entry.

You're not alone. I tried watching an episode of 24 somewhere in the first season but found myself lost (no pun intended) because I had no idea what had gone on leading up to the episode I found my self watching. What I saw was okay but I kind of said to myself that I was going to wait for a box set of the season so I could watch them together or at my leisure at least. Now here we are 4 seasons later and the whole enterprise looks too much like an up hill struggle to even start watching it.

Same goes for Lost. Due to work, I'm never in front of a TV  consistantly throughout the week and I miss episodes. Neither can I be arsed to record them, although I'm recording a few more things now that I've got a HardDrive recorder.

When 24 finally finishes, and they're all on disc at a reasonable price, I'll give them a go. Same with Lost. I've probably seen the majority of one episode (again, somewhere in the 1st season) but until the story is over and finished I'll hang on. I like to know the precise width and depth of the financial shaft my DVD buying will lead me down first.

It annoys when shows like Prison Break have an idea or concept behind them (which presumably is the prison break itself) and don't deliver on the promise purely because the programme gets picked up for another season. It gets its thin premise dragged out far beyond what was initially envisioned for it. I'm not dismissing Prison Break (I hear it is a good show). All I'm saying is that shows like it (which have very definate concepts and story arcs) should stick to what they were originally. Not outstay there welcome, test viewers patience nor bleed the eventual DVD consumer dry with naff Season 1, Volume 1 (and a couple of months later Volume 2) rip off boxsets, and again with another boxset containing (gasp) all the seasons episodes.

Just a thought.

I got the first season for my birthday....and I wasn't amazed.  Also, 24 episodes to tell one story is kinda drug out.  I know a lot of people like the real time thing...but who knows.  I doubt I'll get season 2.
I wonder if I'm the only person here that hasn't watched an episode of 24.  Only seen a few 'Lost' episodes, too.  I have nothing against these series, I'm just waiting for the DVD sets to come down in price a bit.
It's not the gun that makes Jack Bauer powerful--it's his magic hooded sweatshirt that renders him invisible and protects him from terrorist bullets and chemical weapons.
Ahh. Another cover of Jack Bauer looking worried with a gun. Why is he always so worried. He's got the gun.
Hmm, it seems to photoshoppy. It's fine, I guess, but I don't really like it.
