The news is that the first 4 episodes of the 2007 season of 24 have leaked to bittorrent, over a week before they are about to air on TV. They all come from a Season 6 Premiere DVD that will be released after the shows air on TV, two episodes each on January 14th and 15th, 2007.
I have no intention of watching this, half because I don't support the idea of things being stolen before they make it to market (although i'm in little position to have moral high ground in this arena), and half because it would then mean weeks until the next episodes of 24. Still, it may not hurt the show, and some are saying it was a marketing ploy by Fox to build up excitement. I doubt it, they could have just released teaser episodes on their own site, but who knows.
Either way, I can't wait for the season to start.
