24 - FOX Network

Kiefer Sutherland is Jack Bauer (pictured above). Approaching Season Seven of the popular television action hit series "24", one can only wonder how long the character can sustain the non-stop 24/7 action. Is Jack really going to save the world one more time? Probably. It's still a good show, suspension of disbelief notwithstanding. Jack has lost family members, been tortured, forced to kill and torture others, yet he still fights on tirelessly to make our country safe for democracy. What more can we ask for?

Bauer works for CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit), forever in a power struggle with National Homeland Security. Each season a new terrorist threat rears its ugly head to challenge Bauer and his loyal CTU crew. His toughness is what sustains him when all hope is lost, even through all the betrayals and lost friendships. Yes, main characters are sometimes killed off and/or seduced by the dark side. But don't worry; Jack's stubbornly spunky assistant Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) will be there to talk us through it. I feel safer already.
