Question: Will they rerun 24 before the new season begins? I missed the final episode! — Joyce, Fort Collins, Colo.

Televisionary: You mean you don't have a VCR in this age of cheap and plentiful gadgetry, Joyce? I'm this close to banning you from participating in my column.

If you have a DVD player — or a friend with one — you're in luck. The second-season DVDs go on sale Sept. 9. And you'll want to set aside the an hour at 9 pm/ET on Oct. 28, when season three premieres. (Make sure you don't drink too much water beforehand, either — there won't be any commercial breaks and I assume you don't have a Tivo.)
