24 Season 6

Category: TV Series

Genre: Action / Drama

Federal Agent Jack Bauer can't afford to always play by the rules. As a member of the L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit, Jack must stop bombs, viruses, assassination attempts, and usually save someone he cares about at the same time. Every season of this series has 24 episodes, each unfolding in real time following a consecutive hour in one very bad day.

Justice for the past or retribution for the present. Annoyed at Tom Lennox because of his views but later it began to shift and you begin to soften up to him.

Wayne Palmer as President is very admirale at times when he takes full responsibility for his choices/decisions.

This movie sure makes you realize a lot about being a President... that you may have all the answers when you are not sitting on the Presidential chair but then when the full responsibility falls on you.... you never know anything.

I like how the people in CTU look out for each other as a team despite their differences.....

WHAT A MARATHON. Watched this for the whole day with my mom!

But, he later goes back to the Philippines, struggling financially but was able to open a dance studio. Emman and Mercedes meets as he was to be the dance instructor for the upcoming Governor's Ball as they both reveal their dark and passionate past together.

Gah. Too much drama. I thought it would be a fun movie... similar to chick flicks. But, it became heavy one fourth of the movie and was unbearable and quite predictable at times.  Good thing I enjoyed my company when I watched this. I had flu when i went out of the cinema though.
