Ooh, yes! Word of advice, when you get to Season 3, fast-forward through all the David Palmer storylines! The rest of that season is pure gold, but that's worse than the cougar. Seriously! *shudders*

Oh wait, there's one lame thing involving Elisha Cuthbert and her bf in S3 ... but eh, still one of the best seasons ever. ;)

I'm more concerned with how the hell I'm going to even be remotely caught up enough to know what the fuck is going on! There's like, what, five seasons? O_o

I would so totally loan you my DVDs ... except I don't own any! Library? Netflix?

The basic concept, you know, except this season they'll be starting in a slightly different place, let's just say. And there were some huge things that happened in S5 that you'll likely be spoiled for right off the bat in S6. I never saw all of S1 myself, and I'm good, so I think you can probably jump in just about anywhere. Of course, I think you should see all of it, though! I think maybe starting with S3...? I'm quite partial to that season, myself. Starting with S5 would be a little rough and you wouldn't really appreciate it, on its own, I don't think.

Ordinarily, I avoid spoilers (including casting spoilers) like the plague, but this makes me happy (and made me squee) so I don't even care. Eddie Izzard is awesome. Can't wait.

Oops! I'm glad it's OK, though! And yes, I think this will be great! I was already really looking forward to the next season!

OMG.
For serious?
That's like the best casting EVER!
As long as they don't pull an Alias and James Cromwell isn't a SpyDaddy.
