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 2: Hour 25
Made it past the 24 hour mark and can keep my La-z-boy recliner. I know that TV critics usually get made fun of — after all, who watches TV for a living? I can say though that this experience has earned me my stripes. My eyes are completely red and Jack Bauer now looks like a triangle to me. I can’t believe everyone is still in it. My plan is to try to make it to 48 hours, but I think that’s all I got.
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.
