Did You Know?


Jack Bauer was in China for 20 months. See more »


While being tortured it's logical to assume the Chinese government wouldn't provide healthy foods and liquids, they would provide the bare essentials for him to live long enough to be exchange. Jack's physical condition would show that the very least is severely dehydrated, malnourished. See more »


[at about 6:30am]
Jack Bauer: [to Bill Buchanan] Do you know the difference between dying for nothing and dying for something. That's why I'm still alive. That's the only reason why I managed to stay alive in China, so I wouldn't die for nothing. Today, I can die for something.
[about 20-25 minutes later, around 6:55am; Jack Bauer is being tortured very badly]

Really the best acting performances on TV in a long time. But even better is the writing! The twists and turns of plot leave the viewer dizzy and asking for more. Weaving political and historical analysis in the plots creates an entertaining mix of the real and the fictional...a so very contemporary tableaux that can only serve as a lightning rod for discussion.

Life is like this. The interaction among characters and events lead into myriad and complex directions of reality and 24 has managed to capture this temporal nuance. Interaction among the characters often leads to monumental tragedy but the lonely road of the hero who goes against the prevailing norms and bureacracy can save the day...usually...but there is no guarantee as we have seen with Jack's virtual abandonment in China at the end of the last season.
