*obviously, the ultimate is Jack– this is for who is first runner-up…
The Fox summer series “24: Live Another Day” is over. So is our summer review podcast “Anutha Twenny Fo”, but the “24”-a-Mania rolls on!
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been hosting a bracket tournament with our fine friends at CHALLONGE.COM.
The Ultimate “24” All-Time Bracket pit characters from across all 9 days of the series (including the 24: Redemption miniseries) against each other in a 64-seed single elimination slobberknocker. Four regions were used: CTU, Villains, Politicians and Miscellaneous Threats (for the Misc. Threats region, we had entrants such as Sentox nerve gas, Kim Bauer, The Cougar from Day 2 and Jack’s heroin addiction).
