Murtz Jaffer is no Jack Bauer, but he has agreed to take on the challenge of the 24/7 Ultimate Fan Marathon. He and eight other 24 fans are watching every episode of the Kiefer Sutherland show back to back in advance of season premiere of 24 on Global on Sunday night. Up for grabs? Possibly a title in the Guinness World Records. A cash prize of $24,000. And, of course, pride.
Day 1: Hour 4
It’s pretty tough going here at Yorkdale Mall in the Ultimate 24 Marathon. My eyes started watering in the first break and I wonder why I am doing this. Oh yeah, it’s because if I wasn’t here, I would be watching TV anyway. In the last hour, George Mason asked Nina, “What’s so special about Jack Bauer?” Let me answer for her: It’s keeping us all here, living in a mall for six days. How long do I have left in me? Time will tell. It’s not looking good for the Murtzinator.
You can get the latest updates on Murtz’s 24 watching marathon right here on Prime Time Pulse or over at TheAmpersand.ca. But be sure to check back here for all your 24 needs as we get ready for the new season to premiere on Sunday night, January 11, on FOX at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
