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.
