"24," Part 2

An observation:

Keifer Sutherland’s character, on “24,” Jack Bauer, has a distinctive yelling style. It’s a kind of bellow--when he screams at someone, for example, to “Stand Down!” He does the same kind of yell all the time. It gets a bit tiring.

During an interrogation of one character, for example (this from a “24" trailer), Bauer asks, “What is your primary objective?” Click here.

Or here, when he asks, “What is the target?” Click here.

I enjoyed “24” for a period of time. Yet the show, for a while, has seemed to me to be rather over the top--not unlike Jack Bauer's signature yell. The yell, again.
