In a post-9/11 world, America needed a superhero, and Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) answered the call! From 2001 to 2010, Bauer saved his country one day at a time - using some unorthodox methods and often having his loyalty come into question. He seemed to sacrificed everything - his wife, and pretty much any woman he opens his heart to - in pursuit of keeping these threats at bay. Bonus fun fact: When "24" concluded, it became the longest running espionage-themed drama on TV.

Love this show. Covert Affairs has great creative ops without the naked look. Annie Walker makes you believe she is just working at the art institute, but then has you revited to your seat with an unknown destination adventure filled with enough undercover work and yet can pass as a regular working girl..Brilliant!
