Jack Bauer Will Nap Sometime In This Season of 24
on 3/5/2006 (2)
Five season's in, Fox's 24 is still one of the most exciting hours on television. Yet that hasn't stopped many from sharply criticizing the show and from the show's writers to try and answer this criticism.
|"I've been chasing terrorists for 18 hours straight, I really need a nap." |
"Ever since 24 went on the air, people have been calling into question the show's realism," said series creator Joel Surnow. "Not really about the elaborate terrorist plots, we all know that's plausible. People just don't believe our characters can go through 24 hours without taking off some time to rest."
For that reason, it is planned to have main character Jack Bauer take a nap in an upcoming episode, a nap that will stretch over two to three episodes.
"Having Jack take a nap does three things for this show," said Surnow. "First off, it makes the show more believable. Second, it will give us more of a chance to develop some of the other secondary characters. Fans are always questioning if Curtis could handle the lead role at CTU or if Edgar is secretly a ninja who has a personal grudge against terrorists for dishonoring his family. And third, we can build up Jack's return. How long will he nap, did he set his alarm? People will have to keep tuning in to find out."
"I think it's a great idea," said Kiefer Sutherland, who plays the part of Jack Bauer. "It brings a touch of realism and mortality to the show. If it were up to me, I'd also like to see Jack sit on the toilet for half an episode, fans of the show poop and I think it would be a good way for them to relate to a character that may otherwise seem superhuman."ispl0" style="display:no
