Jack Bauer vs Chuck Norris

Jackbauer-1There’s been a Chuck Norris meme lighting up pixels for a while – and now it seems Chuck has some competition from Jack Bauer:

If everyone on 24 followed Jack’s instructions, it would be called 12.
If you wake up in the morning, it’s because Jack Bauer spared your life.

…and yes, four out of five Kinnons are 24 fans.

  1. Bill, I have heard that 24 is produced in a kind of “just in time” manner; that plot twists and character fate is not all “figured out” but maybe gets written weeks before shooting each installment.

    First, is this true?

    Second, I like the notion of this sort of highly collaborative story making and media producing on the fly. But what are you insights on this sort of approach?

    Like I suggest, I may have it all wrong. But you are my go to guy for all things video!

  2. Thanks for the shout out!

  3. Michael,
    With the multiple plot lines, I’m pretty convinced they’ve mapped the stories – as to their beginnings, middles and ends. It’s quite possible that the “tweens” are more fluid – but I think this kind of show requires more prep than less.
    I’ve tried to do some research on the show’s writing style but I have yet to find links. I’ll keep looking.

  4. Jack’s the man, but Chuck Norris’ tears cure cancer… too bad he’s never cried.

  6. Talk about being behind on the times… I’ve been a “Bill Kinnon” fan for awhile, but now I see we are kindred spirits!!

    I heard that Jack Bauer and Superman had an arm wrestling contest and the loser had to wear his underwear on the OUTSIDE!
