24: 10 Times Jack Bauer Actually Let You Down
Jack has dropped the ball far more than his Chuck Norris-like persona would lead you to believe.
Over the years, Jack Bauer has proven himself victorious in countless impossible situations. As Director of the Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit turn-fugitive-turn-civilian-turn-fugitive-again, he has encountered quite a bit in his time. He survived a heroin addiction, being held in Chinese captivity for over a year, and even radiation poisoning. However you can always rest assure that, within the hour, he will conquer the enemy and save the United States from mortal peril. But you cannot forget that there were numerous occasions where Jack failed to make the impossible happen and all hell broke loose under his watch; from deaths to nuclear bombs to assassinations of presidents, his usual harshly whispered damn it or son of a b*tch simply did not suffice during these events. So with the new season of 24 premiering next week, you cannot assume that all of your favorite characters will be left unharmed. Their fate could involve car bombs, torture, or even having their hand chopped off with an axe by none other than Jack himself. So to further increase your worry, here is a list to remind you of ten times Jack actually let you down but, let's face it, it won't stop you from loving him anyway.
