Catching up with 24

I’ve been an avid watcher of Keifer Sutherland’s 24 for the past three seasons. This year, I just didn’t feel the same need to watch Season 4 every Monday night. I’m not sure what it is, whether it’s because I’ve been too busy, have great faith in my DVR (El Gato EyeTV) to not crash, or can always borrow the episodes from friends. I finally got caught up over the weekend by viewing eleven straight episodes, up to the end of the first story. [By now, long-time fans know that a 24 season is made up of two story arcs. Just when the first arc is ending and CTU breathes a sigh of relief, the bad guys go to Plan B, which this season is happening after 6pm JBT (Jack Bauer Time)]

One thing I noticed is that the gunplay is a lot more consistent. Instead of Jack Bauer switching guns within the same scene, continuity is being enforced. This year, Jack’s weapon of choice is the SigPro, probably in 9mm since he is ex-military and it does not come in 45ACP.

For a short while, Jack Bauer was using an H&K USP pistol, but he was quickly
taken prisoner by the terrorists, so he won’t be using any approved handgun
for a while. Sig rules 🙂

For those who are not familiar with the mayhem associated with the show the past
four years, USA Today has a very good summary of what Jack has done.
