Don't worry, Jack Bauer is well rested
31 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This show only seems intense. In fact, the show, with commercial breaks is only about 40 minutes long (give or take). That means, that Jack Bauer gets gets 20 minutes of sleep per episode. Over the course of 24 episodes, he gets 8 hours of sleep. Why he's so frantic is beyond me. (No I don't actually believe the character is getting 8 hours of sleep. But you know someone's gonna go, "that's stupid").

Anyway. I know all y'all love the show, and that's great. I just have to disagree with most of you. I don't think this show is interesting, well written, or well acted. Every line is a cliché and every actor is acting so hard all the time. It's the most "acted" show I've ever seen, and not in a good way. It's not that these folks are bad actors, it's that they're acting in a format that requires them to be charactures and archetypes rather than people. Ultimately it's a show built on a novelty, and it's presented in a way that would any kid with ADD say "too much!" I need to go watch Tony Scott's Domino to calm down.

Peace
