24, once more.

Once again, Kiefer's back to sabotage my monday nights and keep the doldrums at bay (or slow the editing on the side project du jour, more likely). In the premiere episode, they blew up a bus before the opening credits had even finished, and Jack killed a man after being on US soil for less then 20 minutes - with his TEETH. That's some fine television right there.

Last season I tried to keep track of the violence Jack perpetrated, but never published the post because I didn't fill out the data completely. Here's the info I had gathered.

"24" kill count:

7- 8am: knocks out 1 security guard/maintainence person
8- 9am:
11am-12pm: Jack killed one person (assassin).
12pm-1pm: Jack didn't kill anyone. He beat up the President's Chief of Staff (Walt) though.
1pm-2pm: Jack shot 3 people but didn't kill them. He tortured one of them.
2-3pm: Jack Bauer killed 1 person (terrorist)
3-4pm: Jack Bauer killed 3 people (henchmen)
4-5pm: Jack didn't kill anyone. Someone tried to blow him up though.
5-6pm: Jack didn't kill anyone, but he shot someone's wife in the leg.
6-7pm: Jack killed 1 terrorist at CTU.
7-8pm: Jack didn't kill anyone. He persuaded someone to commit suicide.
10-11pm: Jack shot at least 4 people, maybe more. He also slit someone's throat.
11-12pm: Jack shot at least 3 people while breaking out of a bank. Also, he threatened to shoot the manager's wife.
