I've never watched 24, but I did Lost, and at the least it felt like it was moving forward during most of it's run. Berserk just got to a point where I felt like there was no real progression in the narrative. After the Golden Age stuff mostly, it just became so derivative. I haven't read it in quite a while, though, so maybe it's changed. I don't particularly know if I care enough to go back and try it. It was interesting enough, but I was never in love with it or anything.

"When you see a John Woo film, it's comforting to know how shallow the world really is. The full force of the manly coolness factor with a peice of nose hair sticking out from the tiny crack between manly and cool, exposes the thinness of the male hormone factor. It takes an idiot to do cool things. That's why it's cool."

I was a North American Fall Webworm in my past life. Those were the good old days.
