I must have more Jack Bauer. More Jack. More episodes. Please bring Jack back.

Each season is way too formulaic. 1. Someone/something poses a threat to the President/USA/World 2. Only Jack Bauerโ€™s unique skill set and no holds barred style can resolve the threat. 3. Half way through the season the threat is neutralized 4. Jack Bauer and the rest of the cast run around for the rest of the season tying off loose ends that could just as easily be left for another day, instead of going to bed like a normal person because this show is called โ€œ24โ€ I truly enjoy the first half of these seasons, but I often get bored of the pointless tasks that the characters perform during the second half of the season just because the need to fill 24 hours/episodes.

24 will return in early May as tentpole event drama "24: Live Another Day", which will arc through the summer.

The world is in danger, again. A bunch of people get killed and Jack saves the world, again. Still fun the 9th time around ;-)

I kept hearing how great this series is, and thought I should give it a shot However I didn't even get through the first episode. I'm probably one of the few with this opinion, but it's just not interesting at all and it so incredibly slow. Sorry guys, this just really isn't the show for me!

avatar

Watch 1st season. Then imagine re-watching that season 10 consecutive times sans a few reworks but it's great if senility runs in the family or dementia.

I hate this damn show. Started pretty well. First season had me hook and then the usual happen. The show turns into a circus. The story is unrealistic. Jack is a brute. The plot in all seasons are identical. You can predict what's going to happen in the next 10 episodes in a each season after watching the first 6. The show is prejudice and racist. I swear if I was from the middle of east I would of sued the producer and writer. Jack don't obey the law. He obeys no one. He follows no rules but he gets away with it. He kills and torture people and get away with it. He never lost a fight. He fights soldiers like himself and always win. Like don't they all got the same training you got lol. Like come on. You can ways count on him to save the day. I particular hate stupid plots like this. I am an American and I hate this crap about American shows. The white hero always saving the fucking day business. How about a black or Hispanic or Middle East guy saving the world for once. And stop making people more stupid with his computer geniuses in these shows who seems to know how to do it all. If that was so true than a lot of people who are engineers like myself in the IT field would of been unemployed. No you can not copy an entire data center to a bloody thumb drive. I see these none sense in two many shows. 24, Nikita, alias, etc...they all have this one guy who can do it all. I can believe this crap is coming back.

avatar

Sure it's repetitive and formulaic, but watching Jack Bauer kick ass never gets old. I especially like how he just goes straight Rambo a lot of the time in the later seasons.

avatar

Jesus Christ almighty โ€“ this is so crappy! Sorry, but I was so happy when the first season ended, and I would never dream of picking up season two. It makes Lethal Weapon seem both contemplative and believable in comparison.

avatar

the best TV serie I have ever watched, it is really entertained and all the time is happening something different, the plot is always moving forward which keep you hooked to what's going on... I really recommend it.
