Hi Viewers and welcome to this weeks TV Rewind. This week we are looking back at action thriller 24. Now I know what you are thinking 24 was only on a last year and you would be right to an extent, there was a shortened half season last year, 24 Live Another Day, this was showing 4 years after the original show was canceled in 2010. 24 first aired all the way back in 2001, yes 14 years ago it is hard to believe, and quickly became one of the best loved show on TV mainly because of the main charter Jack Bauer, and the way the show followed real time, it had never been done before. 24 originally ran for 8 seasons spanning 192 episodes with the series finale broadcast on May 24, 2010. In that time there was also a TV movie between season 6 season 7 and it was called 24: Redemption,

The main character of the show was Jack Bauer who was played by Kiefer Sutherland. He had a pretty descent film career before he took the 24 role, he was in such movies as Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, Young Guns Flatliners, and A Few Good Men. Kiefer Sutherland was perfect for the role of CTU agent (Counter Terrorist Unit) Jack Bauer. Bauer was a troubled man who would give everything, even his life for his country and he would not be afraid to go rouge if he taught it was the right thing to do. He also had a family who featured heavily in the first few seasons.

24 was one of my favourite shows to watch during the 2000’s I would never miss a show. As the seasons went on 24 turned into a family event with everyone sitting down to watch what would happen this week after the cliff hanger of last week (every episode was left on a cliff hanger) It was grate TV and at its hight in seasons 5 and 6 it seemed like everyone was watching it and talking about it.

There has been talk about a movie but those plans were scripted in favour of a half 9th season  which aired in 2014 which brought the episode count up to 204. There was also talk about jakes partner in seasons 9, Kate Morgan played by Yvonne Strahovski, but nothing ever came of that. Now Fox has hinted at a spin off show, with out Sutherland, to be developed we will have to wait and see. Did you watch 24 let me know what you taught of it by leaving a comment below.
