No Druthers For Suthers

I understand that 24 is a supremely popular show. I've never watched it, personally. Something about the way those Fox shows are advertised makes me feel like a thin film of scum is accumulating on my eyeballs whenever the ads run. Prison Break is another one.

Can someone fill me in on what I might be missing? Whenever 24 commercials come on, Kiefer Sutherland seems to be screaming at someone who is usually tied to chair. Then Keifer kicks the chair so they fall, helpless, onto their back. That hardly seems fair. This has been going on for like five years now. I suppose it's Bauer's signature move.

Aside from the "24" piece that was plastered across the NY Times Arts cover a few weeks ago, thought you might find this of interest:
