Jack Bauer has lost his wife, tortured the shit out of countless terror suspects (some of them were even guilty), spent two years in a Chinese prison, and developed and kicked a heroin habit—all in the name of national security. No one knows how much more Jack can take, but one thing is for sure: There has not been a terrorist attack in the US since he first appeared on TV.
