Tick - boooooom tick - booooom. Watch one episode of one series and it is this noise, the passing of time, that will remain etched upon your mind, endlessly repeating, for hours.
Well... maybe that's a touch melodramatic, but drama makes this show what it is, one where lives are expendible and back-biting and treachery are just around every corner.
The format is the same for every series. Threat to USA, bad guys are planning something big, Jack Bauer (Counter Terrorism Unit special agent) finds them, he gets kidnapped/tortured/attacked (delete as appropriate), he escapes (miraculously), kills the bad guys, makes his way to the BIG BOSS and usually takes him out too. The glory of America is returned. Somewhere along the line, Jack's family get kidnapped/killed and CTU desert him as a 'rogue agent'.
It's a good idea, the whole thing shows in real time, so one day really does take 24 hours to watch, nothing is ever what it seems to be, and the story is only wrapped up within the last 5 minutes, so it certainly keeps you watching.
However, the question I am asking, with a season 5 showing in America in January is 'How many bad days can Jack Bauer have before it all becomes TOTALLY unbelievable?'
