24

To be perfectly honest, we never really started watching that show 24 mainly because it just seemed like 24 whole hours was a little more of a commitment than we were ready to make to a TV show. But 24 minutes? Yeah, we can probably handle that. At least, that's what Fox is hoping. They just cut a deal to create a new series of 24 one minute episodes based on characters from the show 24 (they're trying to get everyone to call them "mobisodes", but that is way beyond weak) that are exclusively for download over Vodafone's new high-speed 3G wireless service in the UK. At least at first. Eventually you'll be able to get your mobile fix of 24 in at least 23 other countries (see, the number 24 keeps coming up), and sooner or later even here in the States courtesy of their joint venture with Verizon Wireless.
