Why "24" is the best action show ever...

For those of you who haven't been caught in the phenomenon, 24 is an amazing action show starring Kiefer Sutherland, a goverment agent, who stops terrorist attacks.

It is amazing. Last night was a 2 hour special, and I was blown away by it....

Here's the trailer for this season, to show you how intense it is..:

  



Now why is 24 the best action show ever:

Well first off. The show takes place in actual real time. Yes real time. Including commercials. So a show might start at nine and end at ten, but in the show "world" the show takes place between 4 and 5. There is a timer that explains what time it is in the show, and it keeps the tension mounting.

What's even more amazing is that this entire season takes place in one day. Yes the season started at 8 a.m., and now it is at nine p.m. all in the same day in the show.

Secondly the show uses split screen cameras, which just amp up the action even more. You see the same sequence on the screen at the same time, so you can see character reactions to what happens, and it utilizes the whole real time aspect to the show.

Thirdly Kiefer Sutherland is amazing as Jack Bauer. He is, as people have said, "born for the role." He is so intense plays his part incredibly well. The rest of the cast is excellent, and it isn't that "cheesy" TV acting you sometimes get.

Fourthly the show is brilliantly written. Every single character you see on screen, who has a minor role, turns out to play a big role in the scheme of things. The show is incredibly intense, and everything fits together in the end. There are some incredible twists that you never see coming, and the end of each episode leaves you on the edge of your seat more than the last.

Lastly it shows the story of a man who, more than anything, loves America, and will stop at nothing to protect the freedom which it stands for.

You cannot help, but love this show. Everyone who has watched this season, is more in love with the show than I am. You owe it to yourself to watch 24...


And um yeah...
Watch 24.
