I always liked this show, but had the same problem I always had with the show Lost
: I would miss one or two episodes and be completely lost for the rest of the season. I think eventually I will buy entire seasons on DvD and watch them so I don't lose track of what is going on.
Of course, if I were less lazy I could watch them all for free on Hulu
, but honestly I can't sit at my computer and watch TV. When I set at my comp either I am working on this site (sooo many t shirts needing write ups
) or playing WOW
Speaking of WOW
and watching video on your computer, I highly recommend you watch the Guild
with the lovely Felicia Day
. I am totally in love with her.
Anyway, back to 24 before I trail down yet another tangent. Interestingly enough Kiefer Sutherland
has the awkwardly long full name of Kiefer William Fredrick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland
Kiefer is technically an English male name
, but derives from a German word meaning "barrel maker
". According to these barrel making instructions
I found it takes at least three years to make a waterproof barrel. Doesn't seem like the most profitable business. Not a great turn rate.
Of course, I can't talk about Kiefer Sutherland
without bringing out my favorite movie of his, Dark City
. Awesome movie, and if I could find t shirts for it I would definitely carry them. Not sure what would work. This is a great movie, and if I ever get around to compiling my 100 favorite movies this one will be in the top 20. If you haven't seen it you absolutely should.
As proof that there isn't a cultural phenomenon
that can't get psycho fans
, check out this24 Kiefer Sutherland fan site
. Obsess much?
I was hoping to find some funny video spoofs on the show, but they are all stupid as hell. Even the British, Japanese, and Dutch spoofs all suck. I guess lame attempts at humor is the international language.
I did find this very interesting news article
about the Yamam
, a real life Counter Terrorism Unit
from Isreal. These guys do not look like you want to mess with them. Seriously bad ass.
