Jack Bauer, you're my hero

Is everyone ready for May 9th (Jack Bauer appreciation day)? You've got your streamers ready for decorating, cupcakes ready for frosting, and alleged terrorists tied up in the basement waiting for interrogation? If you Google “Jack Bauer” you get over 12 million hits. This just shows how crazy addictive the show is – and how much everyone loves Jack. I’m not going to lie to you - this show is pure awesomeness. I am a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland – always have been. So why I waited until the 5th season to start watching one of the greatest TV shows ever conceived by man, I’ll never know.

Luckily, it is never too late to start showing some appreciation to Jack Bauer. The show is amazing in it’s capacity to seem very real – and the way it’s filmed often makes you feel as if you are a secret agent spying on the president from behind the bushes or peeking around the corner at CTU. It’s the most engaging TV show I’ve ever been privileged to witness. And I thank my lucky stars every day for Jack Bauer. America would have been destroyed at least 5 times by now if not for Jack. I will be appreciating Jack on May 9th like a true red-blooded American should. Here is a list of facts about Jack Bauer that you may not know about (just be grateful that you didn’t have to verify these facts – the last person that tried hasn’t been seen since).
