My new hero: Jack Bauer












I used to think Ari Gold was my hero, until I finally rented Season 1 of 24. Jack Bauer is by far the coolest guy on earth (well TV earth anways). Although Peter the Intern told me over the summer I should be watching this show, Gus and I didn't rent it until after Xmas vacation when Matt Q quoted this show as his favorite show EVER. I couldn't take that remark lightly, and knew I had to give it a try (Although Peter I do admit, I should've just listened to you- awwww). The whole thing with the show is that its 24 episodes per season (and each episode is an hour out of that day-- starting at midnight). haha Lets just say Gus and I managed to spend an entire Sunday glued to the TV watching this show... and it that was only the first 12 episodes of the first season!!! The worst part is, the FIFTH season starts in a week or two, meaning somehow we have to fit in 96 episodes until then! Haha i'm sure thats highly unattainable, but hey its nice to have goals. Anways, I can talk about how ridiculously amazing this show is, but you really can't understand until you watch it! Rent the first season Disc 1 at Blockbuster and if you still dont like it after watching the first 4 episodes, I myself will reimberse you with your movie rental 4 bucks. Plus you'll even get a whole blog about me making fun of you and saying that you obviously have no taste if you don't like 24. Also- check out http://24weekends.com, I know that here it plays on A&E on the weekends, but that website lets you know what channel you can find it in your neck of the woods. (al roker chuckle)

You shoulda started with Season 2....you really don't have to watch Season 1 to understand. I would drop everything, watch all of Season 2 and have someone tape this Sun and Mon's episodes so you can watch all 24 episodes of the 2nd season before, then catch up with this season...it'll blow your mind....
