24 - Season 1: Special Edition
Some interesting facts about Jack Bauer:
- Terrorists dread the day in October that Daylight Savings Time ends. Jack Bauer gets 25 hours in which to kill them.
- Jack Bauer once forgot where he put his keys. He then spent the next half-hour torturing himself until he gave up the location of the keys.
- Killing Jack Bauer doesn't make him dead. It just makes him angry.
- Jack Bauer sleeps with a gun under the pillow. But he could kill you with the pillow.
Ha-ha, you knew I had to go there. Well if you're familiar with the massively popular show 24, then you know about Jack. He is one intense dude. And I mean intense in the strongest sense of the word. In the show, he's like the Houdini of the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU), because he always gets himself out of the most impossible situations. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Jack Bauer in action, Fox Home Entertainment has released a special edition of the show's first season. This 7-disc set comes in a cool as hell collectible tin box. When you open it up, there won't be any hidden explosives. But you will find a booklet with introductions to the show written by producers Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran, along with 7 discs containing 24 episodes. Be careful once you start watching though. It's as addictive as drugs. It's hard to stop once you get into this show that deals with corruption, murder, lies, and some explosive action. You might get an adrenaline rush waiting to find out what happens in the next episode. So, possible side effects might be loss of sleep from watching too many episodes in one night. But if you're cool with that, then this is one collection you can't miss.
