24

That's right, here's the 24 review, Jillian and Bleah! ;D N'joy! :)




24 is an American serial action/drama television series starring Kiefer Sutherland as special agent Jack Bauer, produced for the Fox Network and syndicated worldwide. The show is presented in the semblance of real time, with each season covering 24-hours in the life of Bauer. First broadcast on November 6, 2001, the show has run for 192 episodes over 8 seasons, with the series finale due to be broadcast on May 24, 2010. In addition, the television movie 24: Redemption was broadcast between seasons six and seven, while a feature film is also planned after the series ends.
Bauer is the only character to have appeared in all 8 seasons. The series begins with him working for the Los Angeles based Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU), for whom he is characterized as a highly proficient agent, but one who is willing to do whatever it takes to 'do the right thing' regardless of the legality of some of his actions. Throughout the series, Bauer has to deal with multiple terrorist plots, including Presidential assassination attempts, nuclear, biological and chemical threats, and cyber attacks.



Jack Bauer is the main protagonist of the American television series 24. His character has worked in various capacities on the show, often as a member of the fictional Counter-Terrorist Unit (CTU) based in Los Angeles, but also for other government agencies and in other jurisdictions.
Within the 24 storyline, Bauer is a key member of CTU and is often portrayed as their most capable agent. Bauer's job usually involves helping prevent major terrorist attacks on the United States, saving both civilian lives and government administrations. On many occasions Jack does so at great personal expense, as those he thwarts subsequently target him and his loved ones. Bauer's frequent use of torture to gather information has generated much controversy and discussion.

HERE is a link to a review on each individual season.



I would have to say that Jack Bauer is my favorite character of the show 24. I mean, hello! He is awesome at coming up with a plan at the last minute, he can fight like no one's business and overall, he's just awesome! =D I know, that sounds lame, but that's the first word that comes to my mind when I think of Jack: awesome! :P If you haven't seen this TV series, don't worry, you haven't missed out on much..... JUST KIDDING!! You should have your head examined!!!! Okay, not literally. To tell you the truth, I was so set on not watching this show for forever! Then, in season 6 my older sister, Narthea, finally talked me into watching an episode, so I did. I wasn't immediately hooked, but I did want to watch the next episode to see what would take place, and after that I was HOOKED!!! I love, love, love this show! I'd have to say it's my favorite TV show I've ever watched. :)

Bleah, here's the theme song! ;D
Love ya! Love,

<3 I love this show. Can't WAIT for tomorrow! I think Terin will stop the bomb from going off. He just loves Kyla too much!!! I think it's a tie for my fave character between Chloe and Jack. I guess I have a soft spot for sassy computer wizards. :)

Peace,
[Laurea]

Oh, and Happy Easter!

Thanks so much!
Just wanted to know something else:what is the extent of bad language or other "Stuff"?
Jillian

Eldarwen said...

Laurea, yeah, I think Terin will too! ;D

Jillian, well, there is some sexual stuff in it sometimes, and there's a few curse words, but it's not all throughout the show, like you might think it would be. :)

{Love}

Lindsay said...

Wow, so Narthea got you into "24"?! I didn't know that, Eldarwen! ;)

Okay... I have to say I've never seen this show, but we don't usually watch anything on the "main networks."

Jack Bauer sounds like a pretty cool character. :D Have y'all ever seen "Sue Thomas F.B. Eye"? That's my favorite show! I love the crime, and it's very family-friendly... no bad language, or anything like that. Anyway...... one of the main characters in that show is Jack Hudson. He's a pretty awesome FBI agent. :) Since y'all don't have cable, you've probably never seen this show before. I *really, really* wish you could though, because I know you'd love it!! The only downside to it, is that it didn't really have an ending. The network it was airing on (Pax at the time) decided to stop producing original programming. And since then, they've never actually finished the series. :(

Okay, I really need to end this comment. Sorry, but it's hard to stop me once I get to talking about "Sue Thomas." lol!

♥ Love & Hugs,
Lindsay

P.S. - Oh, one more thing. This is a really cool fact that Haley discovered. One of the actresses in "Sue Thomas" (Enuka Okuma) has also been in "24." She played Marika Donoso. Not sure if you'd recognize that name, but I just thought it was cool how she's been in both shows! ;)

P.S.S. - Now I'm really going! :D

Eldarwen, I just saw Day 8 5:00 - 6:00 on FOX's website! It was AWESOME! I wish the General guy would succeed, though. I think the President is taking the proud way out. Give up the guy in order to save the town. Logically, that's the right choice, but we all know Jack's gonna save NY, so why worry? :D

JACK BAUER IS FULLY AWESOME!


sorry, just had to let the world know...

[Laurea] said...

NOT PRESIDENT HASSAN! *tear* I had a soft spot for Omar! :P At least Dana doesn't get immunity now. :D

Peace,

Hi Eldarwen!
How is your dad doing lately? I was thinking about you the other day and thought of some things to comfort you:

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 - Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (New International Version)

The song "Home" by Downhere really was a comfort to me when my brother had cancer last year. Here are some of the lyrics:

"We want to focus on what we can't see / But this scene is just a fading beauty / In this life, when sorrow steals our joy / We want to walk beyond our circumstances / But our feet run to our own advances / Would you be our way and lead your people on

Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home / Remind us that we have not reached home

Pull apart our good intentions / Break the walls of these dimensions / Paint a picture of our eternity / And we'll sing the songs of Heaven / Be the chorus you have chosen / We need Your grace / To echo the saints and journey on

Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home / Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home"

Well, I hope that was in some way encouraging to you!

Love,
Ellie

Lindsay, I'm so sorry it took me forever to get back to you! We lost our Internet immediately after I published your comment. *grr*. Anyways, no, I haven't seen Sue Thomas F. B. Eye. Though, Haley has told me about it. :) It sounds like a great show! Love you! <3

Ellie, thank you so much! Oh Ellie, that was such a sweet, caring, Christian thing to do! I'm so glad you did share that with me, because you just lifted my spirits. I'm a little down right now because my aunt, uncle and cousin who came down from Tennessee left this morning to go back home, and I am not good with "good-bye's" and I get emmotional. Also, the Gerson Therapy is tough, and that makes me emmotional, as well. :) Oh goodness, thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you, Ellie! :) {big hugs}

Thanks for all the comments, everyone! =D

{Love}
