I realise i may be alone here but finished season 3 of 24 this weekend and oh, i just adore Jack Bauer! He's not a beefcake or your traditional hard nut but he is just amazing...

And the bit at the end when he just let himself 'feel' after the day from hell.. i just wanted to cuddle him.

No spoilers please as have only seen the first 3 seasons (although immediately ordered season 4 off ebay for the bargain price of £3,40 inc p&p!) but WHAT A MAN!!

Mmmm. He is dreamy.

I'm soooo envy that you are just seeing the series for the first time!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 17-Nov-13 23:19:10

Oh, he's hot alright. The first three were the best but, don't let that put you off!

Also jealous that you are watching for the first time envy. I remember that. 1-3 were best but there are good moments in the other series. There's also a film between two of the series. Can't remember which ones though. Might be 6 and 7.

How about Mason???? I started loving him when he mimicked Tony at the beginning of season 1 and I cried like a baby when he died heroically in season 2.
Interestingly Mason and Nina are/were married in real life.
Tony and Michelle snogging in the corridor was rather blush if I remember correctly.

I loved the first 3 seasons. After that it turned ridiculous but was still rather watchable.
Kiefer totally carried the ridiculousness.

I love 24 and will re-watch them all some day. DH just happens to look like KS <happy sigh>

I love Jack Bauer, season 5 was one of my faves. Tony Almeida was my secret crush though.....

There can be no talk of Kiefer without this.

I had heard it went a bit daft but right now i think my Jack Bauer love will see me through.
Watching season 3 made me realise just how high the death toll is - almost everyone who at one point is the main plot device ends up with a sticky end! All except Jack though - hooray (and his annoying daughter who i didn't mind in S1 but by the time she's working for CTU, kind of had enough!) Her and Jack have a nice dynamic though.

anonacfr - he's a pirate grin

I know ole keifer has had real alcohol issues but for as i understand it, he is quite an endearing drunk (National Enquirer told me so must be true!). I always remember when they had to suspend 24 due to his jail term, everyone talked of him as a good guy with a problem rather than as an arsehole who used drink to be even more of an areshole!

You can get the CTU ring tone for your phone and pretend it's him calling for you grin

Is S3 the one where he stops a nuclear bomb by catching it in between his teeth? wink

I love 24 and wish I had never seen it so I could watch it all fresh envy

Lighthousekeeping Mon 18-Nov-13 22:21:21

It makes Homeland look tedious.

FushandChups Mon 18-Nov-13 22:41:58

S3 is with the deadly virus - but am now looking forward to Jack stopping nuclear armageddon with his mouth grin (think i can spot where it starts getting a little far fetched!)

Must investigate ring-tones as Mr Potato from Peppa Pig is wearing a bit thin smile

I definitely appreciate Jack Bauer. Fit. Fit. Fit.

I visualized him when in labour with ds2 . I didn't need hospital until I was 10cm dilated . Thanks Jack. I miss him. grin

FushandChups Tue 19-Nov-13 17:18:56

Ringtone duly changed!

and Spanky - he just gets better and better, pain relief during labour! Is there nothing this man can't do grin

Wannabestepfordwife Wed 20-Nov-13 16:38:15

I love him! But not as much as dp does- he likes to pretend to be him lol!

We've been debating watching all seasons again think we will have to

Ge0rgina Wed 20-Nov-13 17:30:08

I still need to watch season 8 of this! Freddie Prinze JR being in it put me off a tiny bit haha!

spanky2 Wed 20-Nov-13 18:05:37

Jack is a hero in every sense of the word .

I love that he helped with labour pains! What a guy!

FushandChups Thu 21-Nov-13 14:38:14

Oh - it's arrived grin

and Jack is looking fierce on the front cover with his piercing blue eyes! Very happy Fush

FushandChups Sun 01-Dec-13 14:40:46

I'm 4 hours into season 4 and my goodness, I am LOVING Jack at the moment! He totally nailed it grin

FushandChups Sun 01-Dec-13 15:07:39

He is so manly and masterful and yet vulnerable and sensitive at the same time. Having been a life long Kiefer fan, they couldn't have cast a better Jack smile

anonacfr Sun 01-Dec-13 18:48:23

It's the one with Audrey isn't it? I absolutely loathed her. Loved her ex though (the lovely James Frain). I don't get how such an annoying drippy woman could have bagged Jack AND James. Bitch.

Ooh is it the one with Behrooz????? He's become an urban legend you know.
