In the U.S. the fourth series has had the best ratings of any series, many put this down to a much more populist pleasing storyline which neo-conservative critics have absolutely loved – although some wanted it to go further – thinking it pulled to many punches in the name of political correctness, although I quite frankly don’t see how it could have gone much further. Normally I don’t like linking to such one-sided articles but in the name of presenting both sides I will. Here’s a small clipit first.
“Phew — that was close. The creators of “24,” Fox Television’s thriller-diller starring Kiefer Sutherland as counter-terror super-agent Jack Bauer, almost put together a compelling television series rooted in the onerous reality of the war on jihad terrorism. But thanks, apparently, to a few helpful suggestions from the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), they managed to steer clear of all political and historical relevance.”
