TV Series “24”, when I think of dramatic I think of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) from the TV series 24. The drama is never-ending. Jack never gets an even break. He moves from one dramatic situation to another.
I have been watching the series 24 on “Amazon Prime Video” for the past several weeks. It’s the first time I’ve seen most of the episodes. It’s all new to me.
A short blurb from IMDB about the TV series 24.
Jack Bauer, Director of Field Ops for the Counter-Terrorist Unit of Los Angeles, races against the clock to subvert terrorist plots and save his nation from ultimate disaster.
Each season is one 24-hour day. Each episode is one hour of the day. I’ve noticed that the characters in the series never have any time during the 24-hour period to sleep. They are always at work. I’d like to know how they do it. Maybe they sleep between seasons. Whatever they do to keep going the series works for me. 24 is one of my favorite TV shows, it keeps me on the edge of my seat.
What made 24 work under Keifer Sutherland ‘s reign for me was simple, he was an action hero but not muscle-bound he could fight to a decent level. he takes a beating if he gets the advantage, that why it works Bauer was pragmatic and did what it takes including torture his foe to keep the USA safe.
