I think it's pretty uncharacteristic of Jack to just go on a shooting spree just for revenge, I don't recall him ever going as far as he has lately without some serious reason behind it other than revenge. He must know something we don't.

Then again, the writing of this show never makes sense, why bother?
I think it'd be better TV if it's just Jack snapping after everything he's been through in his life.

no, saying 24 is better than LOST is not fail - it is logic (and opinion i guess)

a few reasons (besides personal opinion/taste) as to why i state this:

-24 has had 8 full seasons of 24 episodes each vs LOST with 6 seasons averaging 20 episodes. both have had their ups and downs but imo 24 has had more/better "ups" over more episodes.

-24 is finishing unbelievably strong. on at least 3 occasions this season alone i have been shocked - kudos to the writers for being able to shock me 8 years in when i consider myself pretty good at knowing what is going to happen. LOST is not finishing quite as strong, although the most recent ep was pretty good.

-LOST has more of a cult following - but the size of somethings cult following is not related to how good it is in the big picture. when you look at both shows over their histories, 24 has done more over a longer period of time.

I am not english so you can rewrite the questions so there is no misunderstanding between players.


Since it is microstakes, i don't mind if a player is also an escrow. To speed up things, JDalla is an escrow.

But we need someone who don't play so a player can PM him his answer and be the one who designates the winner.

Answer is a string of 24 0 and 1 ended by a number :
ex : 00101101001110100100111133

Cliff notes :
5$ winner take all
JDalla is escrow
we need to designate a judge who will receive answers

did you guys ever notice, throughout the series, whenever they throw a joke in the dialogue somewhere, it's always really funny?

since they managed to pull about 2 jokes out of about 8 seasons, the shock value alone of hearing a joke is enough to bring the lol's for me

def. in for guessing on the final eps. don't care about escrow. just post someone to send $ to and someone to send answers to.

I don't mind if we just post all our answers public. Obv people can get a slight edge but it's tiny.

also clear up that:

death for a main good guy = silent clock.

if jack/chloe/cole are on their final breath but then it's no silent clock it shouldn't count as a death.

using a gun should mean aim at a person too.

v good questions. gf and i are arguing over them already.

This is awesome. Do you take requests? I'd love to have one of him cowering in the car, "That's Jack Bauer," or blubbering during interrogation. Kind of a Penthouse to Outhouse thing.

If we don't find someone, you can plug in your answers to this site: http://www.abcel-online.com/tools.php?id=decrypt

You create a key word, then post the string of encryption in this thread, and after the finale you post what your key is, proving you aren't making up your answers post finale. Then you can score it yourself.

When you're sending answers, dont forget the bonus question
"Number of times the word "Bauer" is heard in the last 2 hours"

In case of 2 players with the same number of points.

Would be hilarious if some writer for 24 who lurks 2+2 comes in and hustles everyone. It would be money well spent/lost though if it did happen and he would stay and do a well.
