Jane first to predict “24” times … twice!

Jane correctly predicts the time on 24, for the first time.

Remember the 24 game that Jane and I play while watching episodes of 24? During the breaks we try to guess at exactly what time the break will end.

Well, it gives me great joy to announce that last night, while watching Series 3, 01:00 – 02:00, Jane correctly guessed the time that it came back from a break: 01:16:33.

Not only that, but she was also spot-on with the next break, correctly guessing: 01:29:15.

Jane correctly predicts the time for 24 a second time.

What are the chances of that?!


Jane would like me to point out that she was very tired when I took those photos, and that if she’d known that she was going to be so perfectly predictive — like a mysterious cross between T9 text messaging and Nostradamus — then she’d have dressed up for the occasion.

As it is, life’s like that: the most amazing things happen when you least expect them.

  1. Fantastic! ever since you mentioned it, i have been playing with season 6, and the closest i have come was to 4 seconds. I’ve gotta say im jealous of two, spot on in the same show!

  2. Since I read about this a couple of weeks ago, the closest we have got is within 1 second (twice) and 5 seconds (three times). It’s almost more exciting that 24 itself…
