Well, tonight in the GTA, Global simsubbed the first hour (8:00pm - 9:00pm EST) but seemed to have stopped the simsub for the 2nd hour (9:00pm - 10:00pm EST). Currently, we're getting the FOX Buffalo feed on HDFOX 531. There were several audio drop outs during the Global simsub. We'll see if this non-simsub continues.

GO JACK GO!!!

They definitely screwed up the second hour too here in North York.
Picture too muddy, sound cuts out every few minutes. Yuck!

Guys, next time PVR the Seattle feed.

I wonder how our west coast friends get their 24 in HD. Does Global send an HD feed out west? Or do they watch Global HD East or Seattle?

Are you saying you had a Global simsub for the 2nd hour on HDFOX 531? That was not the case for me. The 2nd hour on HDFOX 531 was untouched by Global's simsub machine.

Odd.

Maybe getting used to the sim-subs and not noticing anymore but thought that Evu did not simsub last night on the east HD channel. As to the content of the show...it frankly in my opinion should be toned down a notch or two.

Is this the "official" 24 thread? Am I missing something here? I ask, because most posts deal with PQ, audio issues, and things of that nature.

Is this not supposed to be about the actual content of the show? I'm almost scared to start talking about Jack Bauer for fear of interrupting another type of discussion...

pcouture is correct. The topic of this thread is to discuss 24-Season 6; the content, the story, the actors, etc...pertaining to the actual program. It should not be to discuss picture quality or simsubbing of which there is an Official Faulty Simsub log to deal with such things.

TOPIC!

I thought the simsub log thread was just for official logs, not actual discussion. For discussion of the simsub issues, should we start seperate threads like "24 - Season 6 Simsub Banter" or something?

Cheers.

Yes, the official log is for faulty simsubs. Has anyone logged the faulty simsub of 24 this week? If so, I haven't seen it. Instead all I see in this thread are people complaining about the simsub.
I just want to make clear that the purpose of this thread is to actually discuss 24-Season 6, the program. To keep discussing the faulty simsub of 24 by Global is getting repititious and does not serve to contribute insights into the actual content of the show.

Agreed. Perhaps making this thread sticky and adding "Official Thread" to the title like the others in this group will help to reinforce that.

Cheers.

Ottawa had no simsub at all on FOXE (Fox2 Detroit) for either hour.

Also, i noticed the dot pattern last night everyone has been talking about, that being said i've never seen it at my house, only last night at my friends on his 720P DLP tv.

Thank you very much Cyclism.

Wow, every time something is on Global, all we read about is simsubbing. It's as if people did not care what the show is about, they only care about the broadcast.

Anyway, I almost got fooled about Jack's father not being involved.

I'm still trying to figure out what rational motive exists for selling nuclear weapons that could obviously be used on your soil. No matter how much money involved...

Now, the whole plot about the President being the target of a coup... I'm not sure what to make of that. I can understand the disagreement behind the proposal from the security advisor, but to go as far as eliminating the Pres....
