J is for Jack Bauer


Every morning I wake up, I give thanks that Jack Bauer has once again saved the world.

I don’t watch the show.  My husband turns it on once I head to bed, and then he tells me the next day about what Jack Bauer had to endure.

Poisons?  Incurable viruses?  Of course, he survives.

Plane crashes?  Where he has to take over the driving?  Oh, yes.

A nuclear bomb or bombs that threaten to wipe out half the world?  No problem.

Every form of torture?  Easy peasy.

Labeled as a rogue agent and gets hunted by everybody? Then is redeemed?  Yup.


Huzzah to Jack Bauer!

Where can the '24' movie take Jack Bauer now that the show has aired its series finale?

  3. This is another one my husband got into, but I didn't - a show I'm convinced is written for binge-watching if ever there was one. I just haven't caught the marathon, yet. Reminds me a little of MacGyver, but in a dark way.

  4. It's amazing how they come out of things with just a bloody lip. You know he won't know his name by the time he is 60:)

    1. Apparently it is so. While we sleep safely, Jack Bauer is fighting evil.

  9. I watched about 4 seasons of 24 and by the 5th season I had OD'd on the formula. Those 4 seasons were fun, though!

  10. LOL! I haven't watched the new ones, only the first four or five seasons. It's some interesting action though.

    Loving your blog background of shamrocks, btw.

    1. Hard to think that Donald Sutherland is his father. So different.

  15. This guy has no pity or remorse, looks you straight in the eye and pow! I've seen a few episodes here and there. Jack doesn't hesitate to snuff out people from all walks, even women, so watch out ladies!
